0E

Category: CPU-generated
Flags: callout or callback (usually hooked rather than called)

INT 0E - CPU-generated (80386+ native mode) - PAGE FAULT

Desc:	this interrupt is generated in protected and virtual-86 modes on
	  attempting to access a 4K memory page whose page table entry has
	  the "present" bit cleared
Notes:	used to implement virtual memory--when the page fault occurs, the
	  operating system can load the appropriate page from disk
	a protected-mode program written in the Flat memory model will often
	  generate this interrupt (typically reported as an Exception #14 or
	  Exception 0E with a register dump) when dereferencing an
	  uninitialized or corrupted pointer
