Memory Management blue screen error

    For the past 4 months, I've been repeatedly getting a blue screen
    telling me I have a Memory Management error after playing games on my
    computer for random amounts of time and rarely when I watch videos.
    Unfortunately after I get the blue screen, it restarts my computer so I
    haven't been able to see if I've had a major memory usage spike, but I
    have used the windows memory diagnostics to test my ram and it says no
    problems were detected. I've also tried to simply format my hard drive
    and reinstall vista, just in case a virus was causing it, but it didn't
    fix anything.

    I don't understand what caused it since I haven't downloaded or
    installed any new software or hardware and the first time it happened, I
    had already been playing a game for a few hours.

    I have:
    Acer Aspire 4720Z laptop
    Intel Pentium dual-core processor T2310
    2.50 GB ram
    Windows vista home premium 32 bit

    Any help into the matter would be greatly appreciated.

    I would strongly recommend an overnight burn in test to see if the memory
    can sustain repeated utilitization.

    Apparently you have Automatically Restart enabled in Advanced System
    properties. If yes disable it.

    The only thing I've done with the bios was change the boot sequence to
    have my CD Rom as first preference so I could reinstall vista. I've
    always been afraid to mess with the bios much since I really don't know
    much about it.

    Also, I did have the auto reboot box checked. It's unchecked now so
    hopefully I can get back to you with the memory info next time it
    hapens.

    What is the configuration of you 2.5GB of RAM?
    Vista does not like RAM that does not all operate at the same speed. So
    when using DDR2 RAM you should only use a matched set of 1GB RAM to get to
    2GB.
    I suggest that you consider downgrading to to 2GB.

    Run the memtest as suggested by others. Try not looking for a quick fix . You have a
    problem with the memory on your computer

    That could be the problem then. I have a (DDR2) 2GB RAM I installed
    myself and a 512 MB RAM from the factory. Because I don't have the
    other factory 512 RAM card anymore, would it hurt to use the 2GB card
    and have the second ram slot empty until I can buy another?

    No it would not hurt and you don't want to install a second memory stick
    unless it is exactly the same part number as the first one otherwise you
    will not have a matched pair. And even then it may cause a problem since
    they were not purchased together.

    I guess that's what the problem was, I removed the older RAM and I
    haven't gotten any more Memory Management errors. Thanks for the help!
