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 This topic is for programmers. If you are a customer who has received a blue screen error code while using your computer, see Troubleshoot blue screen errors.

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.
