What is a "KERNEL-DATA-INPAGE-ERROR"?


Today, while I was working in Google analytics, I got a sudden stop on my HP Envy (W 8.1), saying the PC needed to be restarted, with an error code “KERNEL-DATA-INPAGE-ERROR”. The disk scan would not advance, so I just “restarted” the computer with the power button as usual.

Microsoft help seems to indicate this is a real hard drive error. It can happen on much earlier operating systems. 

But I noted on the Windows reliability history that Intel had done a driver update at exactly the same time as the crash.
