Sophie Luo, in Blue Screen Error Tags: BSODWindows 10

If you’re on Windows 10 and you’re seeing the blue screen of death error MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, you’re not alone. Many Windows users are reporting this problem as well. But no worries, it’s possible to fix, even though it might be related to severe memory management error. 

Here are 3 fixes for you to try. You may not have to try them all; just work your way down until you find the one works for you. 

1: Run SFC  
2: Run Windows Memory Diagnostic Test
3: Uninstall Drivers or Software
Other options

1: Run SFC 

One of the reasons for the Memory_Management blue screen of death error could be corrupted system files. You can run System File Checker to replace corrupted files if it finds any: 

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key. Type cmd. Right-click Command Prompt and click Run as administrator

2) Click Yes at the prompt. 

3) Type sfc /scannow and press the Enter key. Wait for a while for the process to finish. 

4) If this problem still persists, please try the options below. 

2: Run Windows Memory Diagnostic Test

As the error message entails, it could indicate that your RAM is at fault. You can run the Memory test to see for sure and fix any problem if the test finds one: 

1) On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke a Run command. Type mdsched.exe and hit Enter


2) You could choose Restart now and check for problems (recommended) to check the status of your memory card right now, or choose Check for problems the next time I start my computer if you are too occupied now. 

3) You will be seeing this page showing the progress of the check and number of passes it will run on memory. 

If you don’t see any error here, it’s likely that your memory card is not causing any issues. 

3: Uninstall Drivers or Software

In many cases, newly installed device drivers or software programs is the culprit of the blue screen of death error. If you have made any changes to your PC, undo them now. See if the problem is resolved. 

Outdated or faulty drivers can also be the cause of a blue screen of death error. You should verify that all your devices have the right driver, and update those that don’t. 

If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your drivers manually, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. 

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 clicks (and you get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee): 

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers. 

3) Click the Update button next to all flagged devices to automatically download and install the correct version of their drivers (you can do this with the FREE version). 

Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All). 

Other options


If none of the above methods help, here are some user feedback and you might want to give them a try: 

1) See if you can find two or more software that are conflicting each other. 

2) Try to disable a rogue modem in Device Manager.

3) Try to uninstall Gigabyte Energy Save program.

    I finally got so sick of this happening that I called Microsoft. Their answer? “We can refund your Windows 10 purchase.” What??? Windows 10 is being forced on us, with Windows 7 support ending in January 2020, and you are offering to refund my Windows 10 purchase? That is not an answer.

      Hi. The fixes apply to Windows 8.1 as well. Some hot keys need to be changed accordingly though.
