So here's the situation:

I am on a 1 year old ASUS Republic of Gamers laptop, I was browsing Youtube when I got blue screen with a KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR error. When I tried restarting, it just looped while saying "preparing automatic repair" and then cut to black.

 

 After some research, it became apparent some files on my hard drive were corrupted. I pulled out the hard drive in order to get it to start, and attempted some repairs via the command prompt, put the hard drive in. Nothing. Same issue. So I pulled my hard drive out, and everything works just fine with my hard drive out, but the problem reoccurs when it goes back in.

 

So, what should I do? I backed up all files I want kept. Can I just run the laptop indefinitely without it's hard drive? Or do perhaps need to plug it back in and perform a factory reset? Please help, not sure what I need to do. 

 

Thanks a bunch.

 

Edit: problem more or less solved, I removed one of my hard drives, the one causing issues. Going to reset it at some point.

Well after searching it on microsoft: 

Error Message:

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

Explanation:

This Stop message indicates that the requested page of kernel data from the paging file could not be read into memory. This Stop message is usually caused by a bad block (sector) in a paging file, a virus, a disk controller error, or failing RAM. In rare cases, it is caused when nonpaged pool resources run out. It is also caused by defective hardware.


Try reseeding your RAM.

 

edit: Oh a laptop...... Wipe your HDD if stuff happens with it not in.

 

edit 2: After rereading: How are you doing things without a hard drive in the laptop? Are you doing things in BIOS?

Most likely a virus if it's on such a new machine.  Run CHKDSK on the machine; that can sometimes fix it if it's a problem with the hard drive.  If it's not, then you could try to have some parts replaced assuming it's still under warranty; if you don't have warranty and the problem keeps persisting then you probably want a new laptop.

I would totally need your machine in order to diagnose and repair.  CHKDSK is a good option if you can actually get into windows to start that process.

BSOD is most often ram.  If it's 2 chips:

1.  Take one out test.  

2.  Exchange chip and test again.

Your not making any sense here....you remove the HD and then you do what?  Explain in detail as if it boots to BIOS so what.  You need to know if the HD controller can access the HD and also copy out files as commanded. 

 

Buy a cheap hard drive for it and format it and see if it can do that.  if it fails most likely its HD controller failure and or MB failure.

Put my hard drive back in and am currently running disk check. It breezed through until it hit 45%, it's been stuck there for several minutes now. Now I'll just have to wait and see.

 

Thanks for the help.

Your hard drive might've died

It's at 100% now, but now it's stuck on that. So again, I'll just have to wait.

 

Oh then it's just hanging. If nothing actually seems to work. Just reset the drive if you have nothing that you need on it. If it doesn't work after resetting the drive, your drive is probably dead. Or there's other problems.

So check drive was being weird, it was stuck on 100% for over an hour, so I just took my hard drive out and my computer, like before, works fine without. No missing files, nothing. Is there any reason I can't just run my laptop without it's hard drive?

 

Edit: Nevermind, my laptop has 2 drives. I'll leave the messed up drive out since it's being trouble.

There is a neat program that you can use to help repair hard drives (i.e. spinning disks not SSD's)- It 's called Spinrite, Don't know how much it would cost for a personal copy but it works wonders on hard drives. I have used this many times at work to help get a hard drive to a recoverable status to get the data off of it. And in some cases it corrected the issues with the drive altogether.


 

As others have said if this is not your main OS hard drive then format it or replace it if you do not need to recover the data.

Good Luck!

Well it sounds like the problem child is your data drive? I would just reformat it. If you have the same problem in a couple months you know the drive has gone bad.

No, it was the HDD that was causing problems. The SSD is fine.

 

Okay... cause there are certain commands you do not want to run on an SSD that you can run on a HDD.
