[Fixed] Memory Management Blue Screen of Death Error
Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD for short is one of the most tricky and annoying issues during gameplay. Sometimes your computer can crash to a blue screen with an error code “Memory Management”, forcing you to stop what you’re working on your PC and restart. Today, we’re introducing 7 top tips for you to fix the error and protect your computer from damage.
- Run an SFC scan
- Update your graphics drivers
- Update BIOS
- Perform a Memory Diagnostic test
- Check for virus infections
- Troubleshoot Blue Screen error messages
- Reset or reinstall Windows
Before we start troubleshooting, please make sure you have a stable power supply. Also, please disconnect and unplug all the accessories such as a USB device or an external SSD, as they may cause hardware incompatibility. (That said, if your computer gets back to normal by doing so, then the peripheral device is the one to blame.) After that, proceed with the tips below.
System File Checker (SFC for short) is an in-built Windows repair tool to detect and resolve any corrupted system files. If there are any of those damaged files in your system, you will probably get a BSOD error code “Memory Management”. So, performing a deep full SFC scan throughout your whole system is a top priority in this case.
To do so:
- On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R together to invoke the Run prompt. Type
cmdand press Shift, Ctrl, and Enter together to open Command Prompt with elevated permissions.
- On the Command prompt, paste the following command line and press the Enter key:
(Be aware of the blank space in between the command line.)
- Now, an SFC scan will be automatically running. Wait until the scan is done.
Once SFC detects and repairs the corrupted files for you, restart your computer and see if the issue persists. If so, move on to the next tip.
When you get the Memory Management error and a blue screen, one of the first things you should do is to update your graphics card driver since an up-to-date graphics driver always ensures the best display performance and fewer bugs.
To update your display card driver, here’s what you can do (please note that the following screenshots are taken on Windows 11, but the instructions work on Windows 10 as well):
- On your keyboard, press the Windows key and X at the same time, and select Device Manager.
- Double-click to expand the category Display adapters. Then right-click your graphic card driver and click Update driver (the name of the device can be different on your computer).
- Then click Search automatically for updated driver software.
- Wait for Windows to find the latest driver available for you.
- When the driver update is done, restart your computer for the change to take effect.
- Then check and see if the problem is fixed.
If Windows says that it’s already found the latest driver for you, so no newer drivers are found, then you should consider updating your graphics driver in a different way with the help of Driver Techie.
Its ever-growing driver database allows you to always have access to the latest device drivers that you need. More importantly, Driver Techie simplifies the driver update process, so all it takes is just 3 clicks (for Pro users), and all your drivers are updated.

The Stop Code: MEMORY MANAGEMENT error may be caused by DDR4 2666MHz memory modules installed in your system.
Driver Techie recommends that the latest BIOS be installed, as it fixes the DDR4 2666MHz memory modules and resolves the BSOD error in many cases.
However, the steps to update your BIOS vary greatly between different computer manufacturers. You’ll have to visit your computer’s manufacturer’s Support page for further troubleshooting or seek help from a technician. For your convenience, here are the quick links to some of the common manufacturer’s Support pages:
- Lenovo: How to update BIOS-Windows
- Dell: BIOS updates
- HP: Updating the BIOS
- Acer: Update your BIOS on an Acer notebook computer
If your BIOS is confirmed updated, perform the next troubleshooting.
If neither of the tips above fixes the problem for you, you’ll need to take corrupted RAM into consideration. In this case, the best solution would be a RAM memory replacement. But before you do this, please double-check that it is the culprit of what we’re facing.
Here’s how to do the RAM Memory Diagnostic test:
- In the Windows search box, type
Memory Diagnosticand press the Enter key. Select Windows Memory Diagnostic from the searching results.
- Select Restart now and check for problems.
- Wait for the process to complete. If there is anything wrong happened to your RAM memory, you will see it from the Memory Diagnostic report.
If there is nothing found in the test, proceed with the next method to see what else we can do.
Malware or virus infections can be another possible reason for the BSOD Memory Management error. Therefore, you’ll need to run a deep scan throughout your system.
You can use Windows Defender to check for malware or virus, but it’s also recommended to use a third-party antivirus (like McAfee) as a supplement.
If there is no malware or virus found and your computer is completely healthy, then try the next method.
If you get the Memory Management error, you can also refer to the Microsoft Support page for further troubleshooting options. Please note that the error code Memory Management isn’t listed in that Microsoft article, but since many error codes have the same potential resolutions, your best bet is to follow the steps below to troubleshoot your blue screen error.
If the error still cannot be resolved, we recommend you reset or reinstall your Windows. See the following tip.
If all the methods above fail to repair your system, then performing a system reset might help.
