BSOD: Memory_Management In Vista

Posted on 2008-10-11

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have experiencing frequent BSOD's when doing simple things like browsing the internet and also my games crash as well when loading. Windows Vista says it is related to my Nvidia SATA drivers. I ran a test on my hard drives and my main hard drive is fine but my storage hard drive says it is not connected and i should check cables. I replaced the cables and same result. I can open files in that drive fine as well. I just replaced my power supply so i doubt that is the problem. Blue screen details below. Thanks in advance.
My System:
Gigabyte P45 DS3R Motherboad
Intel Q9550
4GB of Corsair 800 Ram
Nvidia Geforce 8800gts 512
Samsung 500gb (storage)
Western Digital 160gb (main)

Is that the only dmp file you found? With one dump only there is a big chance that it is coincidental. look for others, zip them and upload them using the Link I posted earlier.

The dump you attached points to your win32k.sys file.

i get about 3-4 a day and they are all the same. That is not coincidental.

it points to MODULE_NAME: win32k    IMAGE_NAME:  win32k.sys
in this case, i would start by running a ram test for 3 passes :
it can also be a bad disk - you can run chkdsk on it too

I ran memtest and received an error. I think it is because i have two different RAM sets in my machine. I have 2 1gb sticks of 4-4-4-12 corsair memory and 2 1gb sticks of 5-5-5-18 of corsair memory. If i manually changed the timings in in the BIOS would this problem go away?
