    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT BSOD When Plugging in Hard Drive


    Yesterday my computer suddenly had a bluescreen named MEMORY_MANAGEMENT. I tried to restart my computer but it would keep crashing when starting.

    Here is what I have narrowed down so far. My secondary 3TB GPT internal hard drive I use for storing my libraries and the page file causes the bluescreen. When starting my computer without the drive, it does so without problems.
    I'm guessing the cause for this was the loose SATA connector to the drive. I'm guessing it unplugged while the system was running, causing something to get corrupted or something similar.
    Something interesting to note is whenever the bluescreen happens with that drive connected the progress for making a minidump is stuck at 0% and never finishes, leading me to think this problem is related to the page file configuration. I had to change the settings to get a dump to post.

    I ran chkdsk /f on both my drives and memtest86.

    Any help would be highly appreciated!

    Huh. After uninstalling a bunch of programs the problem was fixed. I thought I removed every program that I installed right before the issue ... Sorry to bother you guys.
