Solution 1. Test Hard disk drive (HDD)

“Kernel data inpage error” may be caused by a hard disk drive with a bad sector. This error may be caused by a damaged pagefile located on your C drive. Most of the time, it is damage resulting from a faulty hard disk drive. You may want to check your hard drive if it is causing this error by testing it. If the HDD is found to be defective, this is non-repairable, please replace it.

NOTE: Also if you have recently installed a driver then this error occurred, you may want to skip this and try Solution 3.

Solution 2.  Test Random-access memory (RAM)

“Kernel data inpage error” may also occur if your RAM is faulty. If the hard disk drive proved to be in good condition after testing it as in Solution 1, you might want to test your RAM if it is faulty. This is a rare case but try to test your RAM.

You may also want to reconnect and clean the RAM. Clean the gold pin by using an eraser. And then, put it back with a little force until the RAM slot snaps. Then, test it using Windows Memory Diagnostic, please see below for the video instruction.

If the Windows Memory Diagnostic finds an error, shut down the computer, switch your RAM into a different RAM slot on the motherboard and run the test again. If the error moves with the RAM, it is likely that it is a RAM issue. If the error only appears in a specific RAM slot, it is likely that the motherboard has a RAM issue. Swap physical memory as appropriate.
