    Whenever i start a virtual machine in VMware, i get a blue screen of death saying

    PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

    it also mentions hcmon.sys and
    0x00000050.

    it also seems to happen when i use the Pocket PC emulator in Microsoft eMbedded Visual Basic 3.0

    should i try recopy hcmon.sys or is it something wrong with my memory? (1x512 ddr333 + 1x256 ddr333)

    Where does it appear? VM or real machine

    Try this: Get a memory testing program like Memtest or the Windows Memory Dioagnostic and test the memory

    I ran MemTest until it got to 100% coverage, havent run it for an hour yet (like it says in the manual). Its interesting because it happens EVERY time i start the vmware virtual machine or the pocketpc emulator. Ill run memtest for an hour soon.

    I ran the test for well over 4 hours and it had 0 errors.

    Hmmm, I wonder what's wrong. What OS are you using?
