Consider the following scenario:
In this scenario, you receive one of the following error messages:
(parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4) The PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
(parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
On a computer that is running an x86 version of Windows Server 2003 and that has PAE enabled, the page table entry (PTE) and the page directory entry (PDE) are 8 bytes wide. In a specific scenario, a PDE or PTE is not updated in an atomic operation. This behavior leaves the PDE or the PTE in an inconsistent state for a short time. If the PDE or the PTE that is in the inconsistent state is cached or is pre-fetched into a processor, an invalid PDE or PTE is saved into the cache of the processor. When this occurs, any later memory access that relies on the data structures that are cached or that are pre-fetched fail. This behavior causes the symptoms that are mentioned in the "Symptoms" section.
