Windows 7: BSOD Memory Management During Gaming or Web Surfacing

BSOD Memory Management During Gaming or Web Surfacing

Title should say "Web Surfing"

I've been having multiple BSOD errors for a few days, sometimes several a day. I noticed it happens when I'm either gaming or have more than three tabs open in Chrome. The games would often crash and return to the desktop.

So far I have tried:
-reinstalling and verifying drivers
-running thememtest86+
-running the sfc/scan now
-checking for windows updates
-checking anti-malware, anti-virus. each came up error free
-running ccleaner
-defragmenting disks

I apologize if I missed any information. I was in the middle of running the SFDiagnosis when a "System Service Exception" BSOD hit me and I had to start over. I couldn't seem to find the specific codes of the error other than the "Memory Management" description. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

Your AMD SATA Controller AHCI 1.2 Device Driver seems to be a possible cause, please update the driver from your motherboard support page or check the AMD support page.

Perform a clean installation (without CCC) of your AMD/ATI graphics card driver.

  • Double click to open it.
  • Click this button only:
  • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
