    Bug Check 0x1A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

    This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff557391%28VS.85%29.aspx

    Arguments:
    Arg1: 0000000000041790


    STACK_TEXT:  
    nt!KeBugCheckEx
    nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+0x33906
    nt!MiRemoveMappedView +0xd9
    nt!MiUnmapViewOfSection +0x1b0
    win32k!FreeView+0xa2
    win32k!UnmapDesktop+0x6b
    nt!ExpWin32SessionCallout+0x5c
    nt!ExpWin32CloseProcedure+0x53

        The 41790 code is part of our an internal memory manager code but the bugcheck in my experience has almost always indicated hardware issues (RAM errors).

    So, please check your RAM for errors. Please download memtest86+ [1], burn a new bootable CD (use a CD-RW if possible) from the ISO (download and use ImgBurn [2] to do this or make double click on the ISO in Windows 7), reboot your PC and scan your RAM 4-5hours for errors. If it detects errors, replace the faulty RAM. If memtest is fine, run CPU-Z and check the RAM timings. Look at the CR value and if the value is 1T, change it in the BIOS to 2T.
