Hello, I have an old computer (7 years) and one day I tried to boot the OS it had in (windows xp) and it didn't boot. I tried to boot it again but the bluescreen was different everytime I tried to boot it the 1st was:DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL then I got:PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and also a bluescreen without error codes or something similar.I formatted the HDD and tried installing the OS but still the same error.I think it may be the graphics card but I don't know.

PC Specs:(i dont remember everything so well)
CPU:AMD Athlon 64 3000+
GPU:nVidia nForce (and a model I don't remember)
HDD:Seagate 80GB
RAM:Transcend 1GB DDR400
Motherboard:MSI (an old one I still don't know)
I don't think that anything is missing.

Try removing and cleaning the contacts of the memory cards. Do not touch the contacts with your fingers. You can use a clean pencil eraser to clean the gold contacts.

Good luck
