Are you experiencing memory management errors? Here are some tips to resolve memory management BSODs in Windows 10!
When things go wrong, Windows 10 presents a dazzling array of error messages and stop codes. When you encounter a bluescreen of death (BSOD) error, you can use the Windows 10 stop code to identify and fix the problem.
Stop codes are often tied to very specific errors. Sometimes, you might have to work through a range of Windows 10 fixes. Windows 10’s “Memory Management” stop code is related to the latter.The purpose of this article is to help you fix memory management errors, one by one.
Introduction of Windows Memory Management:
A good memory management strategy for Windows is vital to a smooth operating system. System memory is managed by memory management. Although I hear you saying, “Duh, Gavin! It’s in the title!”) Managing working memory properly is vital to your computer’s performance.
You will encounter BSODs at regular intervals if your memory management fails. Let me explain:
Every memory location on your system is tracked by memory management, regardless of its status. During execution, it manages the transition between RAM and physical memory, selecting how much memory to allocate (and how much is available). Whenever you close a program, the memory is reallocated to other processes or marked as available for use.Memory management is not immune to system errors, just like the rest of your system. Therefore, if memory management crashes, your system crashes as well.
Blue screen of death – Memory Management:
An error with memory management is referred to as a BSOD. Memory management BSOD stop code is 0x0000001A. Memory management errors can be caused by several factors:
- Defective RAM
- Problems with new hardware, such as graphics cards
- With faulty drivers
- Corruption of system and operating system files
- Resulting in disk errors
Bluescreen errors caused by Windows memory management are usually caused by your RAM rather than other hardware components.
Resetting your computer may sometimes fix the problem. When you encounter a memory management BSOD, restart your system and see if the error returns. If not, there is a chance that it was an isolated incident.How can you resolve the memory management bluescreen error? You can try these steps.
- Restart Your Computer:
Did you try turning off and turning it back on again? You can use this fix to fix a variety of Windows 10 issues, including the Windows 10 memory management stop code.
- Update Windows 10:
The first thing you need to do is to make sure Windows 10 is fully updated. An outdated operating system may give you unexpected errors. A quick and easy way to figure out if that’s causing your problem is to check for pending updates.
Open the Settings panel by pressing Windows key + I. Check any pending updates under Windows Update under Update & Security. Whenever an update is available, save any important files, then press Restart. You will be required to restart your computer.
- Run MemTest86:
The Windows Memory Diagnostic shows no errors. However, you are convinced the problem lies with your system RAM. You can use MemTest86 to conduct an in-depth memory test if that is the case.
MemTest86 is a free, standalone memory tester for x86 systems. You run MemTest86 from a USB flash drive (or bootable disc) and leave it to check your RAM. An average MemTest86 RAM check takes hours to complete; depending on how much RAM you have installed; it may even take days.
- Run CHKDSK:
CHKDSK is a Windows system tool that verifies the file system and, depending on its settings, can fix issues as it runs. CHKDSK is run from the Command Prompt and has a lot of neat features.
- Enter command prompt in the Start menu search bar, then right-click the best match and choose Run as administrator. (Alternatively, press Windows key + X, then choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.)
- Press Enter after typing chkdsk /r. In addition to scanning for errors, the command will fix any issues it finds along the way.
Many Windows errors can be resolved by running CHKDSK, including the DPC WATCHDOG VIOLATION stop code.
