How to Fix / Troubleshoot a Bluescreen with Stop Code : Memory Management and FAILURE BUCKET ID : 0x1a 61941 PAGE TABLE RESERVED BITS SET IMAGE Hardware Ram on Windows 10

Problem Description

While I was watching a video on my notebook Windows 10 Version 2004 today, I opened a second video on my extended monitor and my notebook ran immediately into a bluescreen (BSOD).

The following message was shown :

Your device ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you.

Stop code: MEMORY MANAGEMENT

Root Cause Analysis

Once my notebook has been restarted I have taken a look into the Application Events to figure out if there are some additional useful information registered. There were only two events which told my that there was a bluescreen and that Windows has created a LiveKernelEvent. These Events aren’t really useful to figure out the root cause of a bluescreen.

Afterwards I copied the Memory Dump from C:\Windows\Memory.dmp to my desktop and downloaded the NEW WinDbg Debugger which is still in Preview Mode. The NEW WinDbg Preview can be donloaded from the Microsoft Store. The good thing of the NEW WinDbg is that you don’t need to set the Symbol Path manually and create a folder for it. It is doing everything automatically.

Download WinDbg Preview
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/debugger-download-tools

I ran the installed “NEW WinDbg Preview” and opened the Memeory Dump by clicking on File > Open Dump File as shown below and proceeed as follows :

1. Click on File.

2. Click on Open Dump File and select your \Memory.DMP file path.

3. Once you select the \Memory.DMP file, WinDbg Debugger will begin to download the related Symbols (*.PDB Files) which are required to analyze the dump file. It will say Busy so you need to wait. Afterwards, I clicked on the “!Analyze -v” command on the right command pane for automatic Bugcheck Analysis.

4. As we can see in the Stack Trace part of the below automatic Bugcheck Analsysis the first 3 rows which are orange marked, nt!KeBugCheckEx, nt!MmAccessFault, nt!KiPageFault belongs to Windows. Basically Windows is running intentionally into bluescreen to prevent memory (file) corruption. This is a security measure.

Based on experience I can say that in most of such bluescreen incidents the component before Windows “nt.sys” is the faulty component. In our case its the red marked component which is “igdkmd64.sys“. Because its doing something afterwards Windows is running intentionally into a bluescreen.

To figure out to which Vendor this component belongs, please proceed as follows :

5. To list the loaded and unloaded modules at the time of the crash you need to type the command “lmi“. Afterwards you need to search for the problematic module which is “igdkmd64” in our case and click on the hyperlink.

As we can see below from the Debugger output below the “igdkmd64.sys” belongs to “Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows(R)“. At that point remember what I did before running into the bluescreen. I opened a second video on my extended monitor. Does the component which we found match with my action ? Definetely yes. There is no doubt that this module caused the bluescreen on my notebook. If there would be no match between the component and my action I would further investigate into the dump analysis. At this point we found the problematic component but what to do now ?

Solution

At this point if this problem reoccurs too much on your PC or Notebook you should contact your Vendor to get an updated Version of the “Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows(R)“. If you are already up to date and your Vendor doesn’t provide you an updated or fixed Version of the “Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows(R)” you can downgrade your driver. This will definetely fix your problem. Basically delete the driver from Device Management and let Windows pick an Inbox Driver automatically.

Good luck !
