Never thought I'd be posing for help here, but tech guys, I need your help!

I have been getting BSOD's about "Memory Management"......

Assuming it has something to do with memory... :whistling:

Any ideas?

There should be something in the error message that is in this form:

number of error (parameter, parameter, parameter, parameter) name of error

Please post what the BSOD says in this part. An example one is shown below.

HI logreeval that is ok we all need help from time to time.

What is the full Blue screen error message.

Blue screen error messages are one of the most misunderstood error messages out there in regards to windows.According to Microsoft, only 5-20% of these errors are actually caused by the OS. Only 10% are hardware related. The other 70% are the result of faulty drivers or software incompatibility. Based on those numbers, less than 15% of blue screen errors can be permanently resolved with an OS reinstall.

So we can correctly solve this issue we need to get the minidumps.

To get the Minidumps do the following

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to %systemroot%\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder.%systemroot% is normally c:\windows. They are numbered by date. You can paste that address in address bar to get there.
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder. Please do NOT compress them in .rar
4 > use the "add reply" option upload that zip file here as an attachment.

With your Blue Screen error message you may not have any minidumps.

Also I want to see what is in your event Viewer.

Go to Start > run > eventvwr.msc
Right click on system Save Log File As Name it whatever.
Use the "Add Reply" option upload the file here too.

Looks like you got a blue screen error message on 05-11-07 @ 10:05 PM

It was a 0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
With a parameter of (00041785, c0e00000,81c42378,00000000)
This memory management error is usually hardware related. Check the Windows system requirements including the amount of RAM and disk space required to load the operating system. If none of the above resolves the problem.

Parameter 1 tells me that 0x41785 The working set list is corrupted.

You also got a Blue Screen on 05-11-07 @ 10:04PM of a 0xD3: DRIVER_PORTION_MUST_BE_NONPAGED
with a parameter of (a7883ffc,000000ff,00000000,80544e8f)

The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefille

Did you find those minidumps?


We are going to need to have you run some memory tests. But only after we diagnose though the minidumps.

Click here for a guide on Memtest

Click here to download Memtest

Run Overnight if possible.

How much memory is installed and how much does windows recognize in control panel.

Did you get the same type of Ram that is already in your computer.

If not that could be your problem. That also has a tendency to slow down systems at time.

Ya memtest will tell you if the memory is bad by coming up with errors Some of the sites will only tell you what type of memory can go into your system I want to know what type of memory is in your system.

Go Ahead and download everest in my signature.

Run a report wizzard Custom Selection then memory test. Then just choose under mainboard Memory and SPID.

For each module in your system tell me the Memory Speed it says.
