If you unluckily encounter such a stop error, don't fret. Here are several feasible solutions to help you get rid of it. Read on to learn how to fix blue screen memory dump.

Solution 1. Run Windows Memory Diagnostic to Detect Memory Problem

Windows Memory Diagnostic is a built-in utility to help identify and diagnose memory problems. To fix blue screen memory dump, you need to check if there is any memory problem firstly. Do as follows:

Step 1. Press Windows + R simultaneously to launch Run dialog box. Type mdsched.exe into the box and hit Enter.

Step 2. Select Restart now and check for problems. Then Windows Memory Diagnostic will run to perform a standard memory test automatically after the computer restarts.

If you want to change the test mix, you can press F1 and use the up and down arrow keys to set the test mix as Basic, Standard, or Extended. Then press F10 to apply the setting and resume the test.

When the test is finished, the computer will restart automatically. And the test result will be shown after the computer is restarted. If there is a memory problem, you need to replace it.

Note: If the computer crashes due to failing memory and the Windows Memory Diagnostic detects that, the system will prompt you to schedule a memory test the next time you reboot your computer.

Solution 2. Perform a Clean Boot to Troubleshoot the Error

If there is no memory problem, the second solution you can try is to perform a clean boot to see if there is any software conflict.

If there are corrupted files, it will replace them with a cached copy located in a compressed folder.
