Often people get their PC’s a RAM update and don’t check it’s compatibility with the motherboard. It’s also possible that hardware connections are dirty are requires cleaning.
2. Solution – Fixing issues associated with Software or applications
Memory management provides memory that’s required for application’s data structures and functions. It also reutilizes memory that no longer will be used.
When it comes to software and applications, Memory Management does two main jobs: Memory Allocation and Memory Recycling. If there is a malfunction in these jobs, you can be lead to Blue Screen of Death or MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error. Why does it happen and how can you fix it? See below.
The first thing that can result into this is Incompatible Software. If you download and install any kind of software that’s not compatible with your Windows are specific Windows or hardware drivers, it may result in this error.
