Random Memory Management BSOD

Hi guys

Over the last month or so, I am constantly getting Memory management BSOD's. I have swapped the RAM with a known working set, and it seems to still happen. It happens at random times (it could do it loading a game, then work fine while playing the game. It just did it a minute ago trying to make the post.

I have attached my logs.

AMD Atholon 4200 (2.4ghz)
ATI Radeon 4600 HD
RAM TBC
Motherboard TBC

Welcome to SevenForums.

Lots of 1A (Memory Management) errors.

Test RAM the following way:

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.

Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Right, I have a problem now. Someone else told me to use driver verifier (they thought it could be to do with my Xbox controller), but now it won't get past the windows logo, safe mode gets stuck on a certain file.

Any ideas ;/

First try Windows Defender Offline.If failed, try to boot with single memory stick. If failed again, try with another one. If failed again, try without the graphics card.


And, if you gather suggestions from different persons/places, it might make the situation even complicated.
