    I keep getting BSOD with the MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error cause notes, occasionally it will show BAD_POOL_HEADER.
    I have run MemCheck86, ver 4.0 for hours at a time, and it does not show any errors.
    I do have some .dmp and .xml files for the crashes. How do I read them to determine the cause of the problem? I have run virus checks and malware scans, and have not found anything. I have also run System Information in the safe mode right after the BSOD, and after the next normal boot.
    I am running Windows 7, 64 bit.
    Thanks

    Try running the system with only one RAM stick fitted, if the problem persists swap the sticks so you test the PC with every stick individually. You may find you only get errors on one of the sticks.

    You can attach your minidumps for analysis as follows:

    So, I should check the modules individually even though they passed the MemCheck86?
    I have attached the last 6 minidumps.
    Thanks

    A quick look at the minidumps shows four of them state "Memory Management" so the answer to your question is "yes".

    Memory diagnostics do not always find an error, even when there is one, so the best test is to run the PC on one stick at a time. If the errors still occur with each stick then you can be certain it is due to other causes.
