Re: Query on the Blue screens i am seeing on my NT4.0- Machine

Hi peter,

The reason why i think the Machine Blue screens is (NO_MORE_SYSTEM_PTES
the number of Free SystemPageTableEntries is (monitored thr'u the
PerfMonitor) is coming down continuously...

Does anybody see any specific reason for that...

The scenario is
1. Our driver uses Lots of NonPagedMemory (Around 75 MB and More)
2. Our driver uses Paged pools which are locked down in the Memory(around
30 MB)

(This Locking is done only in when the driver comes up initially..we don't
do any runtime memory allocations)

Does this give any clue...
