  1. Windows 10 Pro BSODs REFERENCE_BY_POINTER


    Dell XPS 9380, Windows 10 Pro x64 b1909.


    Over the last few weeks I have encountered occasional BSODs with STOP code 0x00000018 REFERENCE_BY_POINTER,. Initially these seemed to occur primarily during shutdown, but over the last day or two they have become more frequent and occur at any time. I can find no obvious or recurring events in the System or Application logs that precede the BSODs.


    I have carried out the following, and will see if any of it helps:

    • Updated drivers via Device Manager graphics, WLAN NIC, Intel Management Engine Interface.
    • Updated drivers via MS Update Realtek - Extender, Intel System.
    • Ran chkdsk on the C: drive OK.
    • Ran sfc /scannow - fixes made.
    • Ran dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth OK.
    • Ran Windows Memory Diagnostic OK.

    I have collected together a few minidump files and the MSInfo32 data and uploaded them here:

    Please advise.

  2. Reference_By_Pointer

    So far none of the suggestions work or are irrelevant to Windows 10 (latest updates included).

    Though plagued by frequent (+/- every 3 days) blue screen crashes (BSOD) with the error PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and to date none of the suggested fixes able to overcome the problem, I assume that it is insurmountable for Microsoft and will thus just
    have to wait ...

    Now and since the latest upgrade/updates were installed, we have begun being hit by BSOD Error REFERENCE_BY_POINTER. None of the attempted solutions here or anywhere else have worked. We have

    twice crashed in three hours while working.

    This is happening on Dell Inspiron 3537 with 8GB RAM. No new hardware has been added. Is there a solution for this yet or will we have to simply grin and bear it as we have to with the nonpaged area error?

    REFERENCE_BY_POINTER BSOD

    Hello,

    I recently started encountering a "REFERENCE_BY_POINTER" BSOD after the last Windows 10 update. It happens randomly and I haven't changed any programs on my system so I do not know what the cause would be.

    I have uploaded both MSInfo and the DMP from the most recent crash to my OneDrive and you can access them from the link below.

    Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online.

    Any help would be most appreciated,

    Thanks!

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
