The Video Memory Manager has encountered a fatal error..... RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm getting this blue screen of death occasion. It's always after closing out a game. I've had it happen with The Sims 2 and Fate. It always happens when I'm shutting down a program, and most often after a few hours of playtime. My computer was bought about a week ago. Here are my specs:


    HP Pavilion Elite M9150f

    Vista Home Premium

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600

    2.40 GHz processor speed

    1066 MHz BUS speed

    8MB Level 2 Cache

    720GB hard drive

    3 GB RAM (667MHz DDR2 SDRAM PC2-5300)

    NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT (1535MB video memory, partially shared)


    I came across this:




    Does this HotFix fix my issue?
