Hi, first time poster,

I got hit with a BSOD 1a Memory Management out of the blue last night. I tried to re-start Windows in every mode possible, but it would crash with the same BSOD every time I would try to log-in.

I also tried running a Ubuntu live USB on the CPU, but that too crashed before it could load. As a result, I have no way of accessing the hard drive and getting error logs to post on here. I believe it is a hardware problem, does anyone have a solution of what I should do next?

I suggest you start by checking ram. To check the ram, download memtest (http://www.memtest.org/). Burn it to a cd using a dedicated .iso burning utility (http://www.petri.co.il/how_to_write_iso_files_to_cd.htm), make sure the cd drive is at the top of the boot order in bios, then boot to the newly created cd and run the utility.

Sorry for the late reply.

I ran memtest like you said and it found nothing but tons and tons of errors. It crashed at test#7 and was at something like 13 million errors or something. I'm guessing that means I may have to replace my RAM. Is there any other possible reason for this? The memory failed every test before it crashed.
