I am using Windows 7 Professional I was working with my computer suddenly hanged and got BSOD with following error:
crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\051212-20092-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntkrnlpa.exe (nt+0xDCD10)
Bugcheck code: 0x7A (0xFFFFFFFFC0415E58, 0xFFFFFFFFC000000E, 0x212CB860, 0xFFFFFFFF82BCB8EB)
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe
How to solve this problem?

    This error indicates a problem during a paging operation usually caused by hardware.

    Check your hard disk for bad blocks
    1. right-click your hard drive and select Properties
    2. select the Tools tab
    3. click "Check now" for error-checking
    4. select both "Automatically ix..." and "Scan for and attempt..."
    * you will be asked to restart your computer for error checking

    Check your hard disk for "health" using SMART e.g. using
    * some tools may state almost all values as "pre-fail" which is a "normal condition" for a hard drive being used for some time, it simply is old

    Check the cables of your hard disk
    1. make sure they are properly connected
    2. try a different (SATA/IDE) port on your motherboard

    Check your RAM for errors
    * Basically you can use any Linux CD you have lying around. Pretty much all of them have a memory test within their boot menu.
    Or you can get memtest86

    Other possibilities include a defective or wrong storage controller driver, an too intrusive software (which may include anti virus tools), a damaged storage controller on your motherboard...

      After This BSOD I ran chkdsk and my pc ok now.
      After crash of my pc I ran whocrash program according to whocrash report this BSOD
      coused by 'ntkrnlpa.exe' and it needs to update it's drivers.
      But where would I get it's drivers and what are the functions of ntkrnlpa.exe.

    Check here for possible causes

    if you have windows restore point use it to revert back to a stable situation, or use the cd to make repair or upgrade in this case you have to reactivate windows.
