  1. Hi guys,

    I have been experiencing these Memory_management bsod frequently now after upgrading the RAM in my computer from 2 gigs to 6.
    Here are he RAM specs:

    I have a set of 2x2gig sticks and a set of 2x1gig sticks. I have tried just removing my original 2x1gig sticks and having 4gig(2x2) installed but I was still getting this bsod.

    I have tested each stick individually with memtest overnight and they all passed without errors. This is why I am thinking that this is a windows 7 problem.

    Attached is some CPU-Z screenshots to give you a better idea.

    They might all pass individually, but maybe they don't work well together... Have you ran memtest overnight with all 4?

    Hi,
    Sorry I forgot to mention that I have tested them in memtest overnight with all 4, just the 1 gig pair and also the 2 gig pair. This returned no errors each time. There may be something done in the BIOS perhaps but I have the timings and voltage set manually to the RAMs specifications.

    I just tryed to play a game of battlefield 3 ( which worked perfectly before the RAM upgrade) and I was met with a black screen and the pc froze. Upon turning it off and then trying to turn it back on the PC would not boot. It wouldnt even post. Now this is leading me back towards a hardware problem. Perhaps the motherboard is on its way out :/.

    Any advice ?

    EDIT: It also may be wise to move this thread to the BSOD section which I failed to see. I would appreciate if someone would do this for me.

    I am still having the same issue with the PC.
    Memtest Ran with passes on each stick individually in each slot, aswell as the 4 sticks together. Trying to reinstall Windows 7 produces a corrupt files error. The DVD is fine, this points to a memory problem too if I am correct ?

    Any help on this would be great!
