Might be that your graphics card has overheated. Hard to say.

Might also be a driver issue or just some broken hardware :S

Quote:This issue can occur if a requested page of kernel data could not be read from the paging file into memory, or the master boot record is infected with a virus.

Well, you better read the whole page and try these "Solutions" from Microsoft.

- maybe you got an boot virus
- maybe one of your memory cardridge (or how you call it in english*g*) is defect

Could you give more details on where the crash happens? From the first description it seems like the sewer, but you say messhall.

More details: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms794027.aspx

Quote:If the first parameter is 2, the driver stack returned an inconsistent status for the read of the page. For example, the driver stack returned a success status even though it did not read the whole page.

It is possible there is a bug in the graphics driver. However, it may also be possible that the paging file is corrupt, or on some bad sectors on the hard drive. You could try deleting the paging file (Windows will put it back), but that is not a trivial task. Maybe try uninstalling your graphics drivers completely and download the newest version from the web.

Basically, the error means that the code for a function call to something in kernel space (either the operating system or hardware drivers) was unable to be retrieved from the swap file on disk.

It is consistently happening in a specific part of the game?

I think AVG scans the boot sector by default. However, if you had a boot sector virus, you would be noticing far more severe problems than Penumbra not working Smile
