Damaged hard drive sectors or other hard drive related issues can easily cause various BSOD problems. Including the blue screen error “NO PAGES AVAILABLE”.
So a hard drive check won’t hurt.
7. check for software problems
Error: The file name is not specified.
As mentioned earlier, BSoD errors can be caused by software. If you have installed new software before this error, make sure you uninstall it.
Note that almost any software can cause a BSoD error, so be sure to uninstall any recently installed software.
One of the most common causes of BSoD errors is your antivirus software.
Using antivirus software is important, but some antivirus software may have problems with Windows 10, which means you should remove it from your PC.
Almost all antivirus software can cause such problems, so you should remove all antivirus software except Windows Defender.
Using uninstall tools to remove antivirus software is a good practice, because many antivirus programs leave some files behind after uninstalling.
Some users reported that uninstalling antivirus software does not fix the “NO PAGES AVAILABLE” error, but using a special tool for removal does.
Many security companies offer these tools for their software, so be sure to download them.
Sometimes you cannot open Windows 10 because of a BSoD error, and if this is the case, you need to uninstall a specific program in Safe Mode.
To switch to secure mode, proceed as follows
- Restart the computer at boot time. Repeat this step until the computer enters automatic recovery mode.
- Select Troubleshooting and go to Advanced Settings. Select Startup Options and click Restart.
- After you restart your computer, you should see a list of options. Select network safe mode by pressing 5 or F5.
- If you go to safe mode, try to remove the applications that are causing problems.
In Safe Mode, check that your computer is working properly. If you do not get BSoD errors in Safe Mode, your problem is probably related to a problematic software or driver and you need to find and remove it.
The best way to do this is to use a specialized uninstall software, such as IOBit Uninstaller.
This kind of software removes the application and all its files and registry entries, so you need a tool to uninstall the application.
Get IOBit Uninstaller.
8. Using System Restore / Windows 10 Reset
Error: The file name is not specified.
If the BSoD error is caused by a software problem, you can fix the problem by performing a system restore. To do this, follow these steps:
- Perform automatic recovery by rebooting the computer several times during the boot process.
- Choose Troubleshooting. Now go to the advanced options and select System Restore.
- Enter your username and password and select a restore point.
- Wait for the recovery process to complete.
If restoring your system does not work, you may need to restart Windows 10.
Remember that resetting Windows 10 will delete all files and folders from your C drive, so be sure to back them up. Follow these steps to restore Windows 10
- Restart the computer several times during the boot process.
- Select Troubleshooting and Reset this PC.
- Choose Delete All. Now navigate to the Drive Only partition where Windows is installed and select Just delete my files.
- Wait for the process to complete.
If the problem persists after resetting, the NO_PAGES_AVAILABLE error is probably due to a hardware failure.
9. Check your equipment.
Error: The file name is not specified.
Newly installed hardware can cause BSoD errors, especially if the new hardware is not fully compatible with the motherboard.
If you installed new hardware before the “NO PAGE AVAILABLE” error occurs, remove or replace the hardware and check if the problem is resolved.
If the problem persists, it may be due to faulty equipment.
The most common cause of BSoD errors is your RAM, and to check your RAM, you should test the RAM modules individually.
Simply remove all but one of the RAM modules and see if the problem persists. Repeat this process for all installed modules.
In addition, you can use tools such as MemTest86+ to check that your RAM is working properly.
If your memory is working properly, it may be due to the motherboard, hard drive, or other hardware component.
The error message “NO PAGES AVAILABLE blue screen” may be a problem. This error is often caused by a faulty RAM module, but before replacing the RAM, try the other solutions presented in this article.
