Numerous BSOD on new machine running 8.1 MEMORY_MANAGEMENT


Posts

My new PC is crashing constantly with the following errors:

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (About 10 times per day)
SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION (This actually happened 3-4 times today (once while I was typing this message)
PFN_LIST_CORRUPT (Maybe 4-5 times per day...usually when I'm trying to update STEAM?)
KERNAL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE (Only saw this once and it was when I was installing WoW)

There seems to be no method to this things madness.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Disable Verifier. No need for that.

Update from Realtek's site:

RTKVHD64 RTKVHD64.sys Tue Aug 07 06:49:39 2012 (5020F2C3)

Uninstall Avast. Use removal tool for it. Set Windows Firewall and Windows Defender to Auto.

Uninstall any overclock utilities and ensure default speeds for everything.

Attach a screenshot of CPU-Z first tab, one of Memory tab and one each for each stick of RAM of the SPD tab.

Thanks for the help.

I removed the Avast! software with it's removal tool (what a pain!)

I updated the Realtek driver as you requested.

I don't know of any overcook utilities and I don't know much about defaults speeds..but in my BIOS, I have it set to 'defaults'.

The screen shots are attached.

also, what is Verifier?

*added the memory slots

Ok, is the machine stable now? If not, we need to look at latest crash dump.

If all drivers are good, then memory is defective.

Ok, so the good news is that I'm only getting ONE type of crash...it's the one with the SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION

All the others are gone...or appear to be.

I have attached the latest DXDiag.

How would you recommend that I test the RAM...can it be done?

Thanks again.

I don't ever suggest to test memory because it is simply not necessary.

There is only one suspect driver left on your system:

Driver Reference Table - AODDriver2.sys

Uninstall that software, then reboot.

If any crashes happen still, then contact the RAM company for replacement.

Since you asked though, you can test the memory overnight with Memtest86+ but it's rather pointless. (Even testing overnight can come up clean when there is defect.)

Ok....sorry this took so long, but I removed the AMD software that you pointed out and the issue seems to have subsided a bit. I only seem to get BSOD when I run WoW and/or Steam games (Like Skyrim)

And the report is ALWAYS the 'SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION' error.

Is it time to buy new RAM?

Also, could the fact that my OS is on a SSD (Intel) have anything to do with the issues. The reason I ask is because I was trying to move the WoW files from the SSD to the secondary HDD and the issue happened.

You can likely have it replaced for free from the company.
