Bug Check 0xD8: DRIVER_USED_EXCESSIVE_PTES

The DRIVER_USED_EXCESSIVE_PTES bug check has a value of 0x000000D8. This indicates that there are no more system page table entries (PTE) remaining.

Important Info If You Have Received a STOP Code

bsod

If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss.

For information about how to recover from this error, see Resolving Blue Screen errors in Windows.

DRIVER_USED_EXCESSIVE_PTES Parameters

The following parameters are displayed on the blue screen.

ParameterDescription

1

Pointer to the name of the driver that caused the error (Unicode string), or zero

2

Number of PTEs used by the driver that caused the error (if Parameter 1 is nonzero)

3

Total free system PTEs

4

Total system PTEs

 

If the driver responsible for the error can be identified, its name is printed on the blue screen and stored in memory at the location (PUNICODE_STRING) KiBugCheckDriver.

Cause

This is usually caused by a driver not cleaning up its memory use properly. Parameter 1 shows the driver which has consumed the most PTEs. The call stack will reveal which driver actually caused the bug check.

Resolution

Both drivers may need to be fixed. The total number of system PTEs may also need to be increased.
