The 0x0000001A or MEMORY_MANAGEMENT error is a serious issue that indicates a problem with your computer’s memory. This problem can be caused by faulty hardware, corrupted drivers, or software issues.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your System and Drivers: Start by making sure your system and all drivers are up-to-date. This includes your operating system, graphics drivers, and any other hardware drivers. Outdated drivers can cause compatibility issues and instability, leading to errors like this.
  2. Run a Memory Diagnostic: Since this error directly points to a problem with your computer’s physical memory (RAM), it’s a good idea to run a memory diagnostic. Windows includes a built-in Memory Diagnostic tool that can identify problems with your RAM.
  3. Check for Disk Errors: Use the Check Disk utility to scan your system for hard drive errors. Open the Command Prompt as an administrator and type “chkdsk /f” to run this tool.
  4. Run System File Checker (SFC): The System File Checker tool can find and fix potential issues with your system files. Open the Command Prompt as an administrator and type “sfc /scannow” to run this tool.
  5. Use System Restore: If the error started appearing recently, you may be able to resolve it by restoring your system to a previous state when everything was working correctly.
  6. Perform a Clean Installation: If all else fails, you might need to perform a clean installation of Windows. This should be your last resort, as it will erase all data on your system drive.

Remember to back up all important data before making any significant changes to your system. If you’re unable to resolve the issue yourself, consider seeking help from a professional or from Microsoft Support.
