MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error [SOLVED...I think]

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am getting a BSOD that indicates MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. Not sure what is causing this. Here is a list events that lead to this error:

1. This computer was built about 3 months back and has been running fine. I have been folding for OCN 24 X 7 since the start of Chimpin Challenge.
2. Last night, either a windows update or I lost power, cause the computer to restart. I did not realize it in the morning when I left for work. The reason I am suspecting this is because my laptop and wife's computer also restarted. But what is weird is that my PS3s, which were also folding, did not seem to restart as they were still folding. So leaning towards something got pushed through.
3. The laptop and wife's comp are fine. But my comp took a dump.
4. The first time it restarted, I got a message saying my copy of windows is not genuine. And then it got hung up - not being able to do anything.
5. I did a cold boot and this time it asked for validation of windows, which I did and was successful. It boot to windows and then it gave me an error that it could not locate desktop. I proceed to restart, but got hung up. Again, did a cold boot.
6. Upon restart, everything seemed fine. But as soon as F@H client starts, it BSOD.
7. Upon restart, I uninstalled F@H. And tried a proper shut down. System just hung at logging off for 15 minutes.
8. Cold boot again. System got to windows fine - everything looks good. Tried to go look at event viewer and got a bunch of message and it appears WerFault.exe was common on all those. They came on too fast and I did not think about writing them down. But it seems one said Explorer along with WerFault.exe. One said .NET along with WerFault.exe. And I think I saw a few for McAfee too - I could not tell if those had the WerFault.exe. I OKed them all and tried to go to event viewer. BSOD again....sigh....
9. Upon restart, I tried to go safe mode. All I can see is my cursor and black screen and then comp will restart.
10. Third restart, computer recommended to repair start up. Did that and I get a BSOD that says MEMORY_MANAGEMENT.

That's all I had time for before I had to rush back to work. I am going to try the clean boot process from microsoft site and see what is causing my memory issue. In the mean time if anyone got any suggestion, please let me know.

+rep to any help.

EDIT: One stick of RAM bit the dust. Memtest threw all kinds of errors. Testing the other stick as we speak - so far no errors on it.

Sounds like something was effected by the surge and your hardware profile was reset. Did any of your Drives change letters? It sounds like a NB issue I had on my set up which MSI replaced. MSI RMA takes a little while, (2 weeks) Newegg is a little quicker, Maybe they will cross ship your board since it is a flagship board if that is the problem.

Did you try to roll back to an earlier point of windows? Try that first, that would rule out the update.

If not the Mobo or the update, then it could be the Ram, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. Take one stick out test it if you still get the error switch sticks. Try Memtest X86 from a usb to narrow that out first before the swapping.

Third Idea, turn off all Overclocks and see if any errors arise. If not, Fold on.

Well, I bought the board used from an OCN member here. So do not know if it will be under warranty - although board being bad will be the worst case scenario.
I am going to try memtest tonight - I still have it in a disc from when I overclocked my system. So far, in the internet, there were two cases of solved MEMORY_MANAGEMENT issue and both were related to RAM being bad.
Will the windows error check/send program cause a memory overload?

EDIT: Considering the fact that all I can see is my cursor with a black screen in safe mode and computer will restart automatically, is it indicative of anything? I would have thought I should be able to go into safe mode and poke around. But I cannot even get in ! Gah ! this is making me mad....
