Hey Tom's Hardware;

I was recently playing Arma III on my computer(specs below), when I encountered the MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD.

Here's the most recent minidump from the Windows/Minidump folder

Im not sure what happened, memory and CPU usage wasnt abnormally high, nor were any temperature readings.


MOBO: Asus Sabertooth990FX R2.0
16GB Corsair Vengeance
120 GB Corsair G-Force SSD
1TB Seagate something HDD
MSI Twin Frozr GTX 770

Ive been having a lot of issues with my NVIDIA drivers crashing.

Could that be part of it?


My GPU also tends to run anywhere from 30-50 degrees Celsius.

*In addition to investigating any thermal issues:

run MEMTEST or the Windows memory diagnostic.

Other:
1. Update the BIOS if a new one exists (will reset any BIOS changes)

2. Put CPU and Memory to default settings

3. Your problem may be software, but I always start assuming it's an issue with the DDR3 memory being either defective, or more likely a frequency/timing issue.

Ill check for a new BIOS version, I dont know how to install BIOS though.
CPU and Mem should be at default.

Sorry about the double post, but I updated the BIOS, check the settings for the memory and CPU, both of which were at the BIOS defaults to begin with.

Timings are in the new screenshot, after the BIOS update. Its 16GB of 1333MHz memory, by the way.



Also, uninstalled all NVIDIA related things, and re-installed. Im gonna do what I was doing, and hopefully I wont BSOD.

Memtest:
Don't bother doing ONE stick at a time if doing all sticks produces no errors.
