STOP 0x000000EB    |    Fix Windows Registry Errors    |    Repair Windows Error 0x000000EB


STOP Errors are usually the result of a hardware malfunction or device driver issue. It is also possible to receive a Blue Screen Error due to bad system memory, malfunctioning power supply, components overheating, or hardware overclocked beyond its specification. In older versions of the Windows OS you may also receive Blue Screen Errors due to incompatible DLL files.

Since the only option when receiving a Blue Screen Error is to reboot, any unsaved data is lost. With that in mind, it is very important to eliminate these errors to protect your data.

Advanced Troubleshooting

The following details are for advanced users. These are provided for your convenience and may help those with advanced knowledge discover the root cause of their STOP Error.


The DIRTY_MAPPED_PAGES_CONGESTION stop error code has a value of 0x000000EB. This indicates that no free pages are available to continue operations.


The following parameters are displayed on the blue screen.

1The total number of dirty pages
2The number of dirty pages destined for the page file
3Windows Server 2003 only: The size of the nonpaged pool available at the time of the stop error code (in pages)

Windows Vista and later versions: Reserved

4Windows Server 2003 only: The number of transition pages that are currently stranded

Windows Vista and later versions: The most recent modified write error status


The file system driver stack has deadlocked and most of the modified pages are destined for the file system. Because the file system is non-operational, the system has crashed because none of the modified pages can be reused without losing data. Any file system or filter driver in the stack may be at fault.

To see general memory statistics, use the !vm 3 debugger extension.

This stop error code can occur for any of the following reasons:

  • A driver has blocked, deadlocking the modified or mapped page writers. Examples of this include mutex deadlocks or accesses to paged out memory in file system drivers or filter drivers. This indicates a driver bug.

    If Parameter 1 or Parameter 2 is large, this is a possibility. Use the !vm 3 debugger extension.

  • A storage driver is not processing requests. Examples of this are stranded queues and unresponsive drives. This indicates a driver bug.

    If Parameter 1 or Parameter 2 is large, this is a possibility. Use the !process 0 7 debugger extension.

  • Windows Server 2003 only: Not enough pool is available for the storage stack to write out modified pages. This indicates a driver bug.

    If Parameter 3 is small, this is a possibility. Use the !vm and !poolused 2 debugger extensions.
