Chris Collacott Posted August 9, 2017 Share Posted August 9, 2017 Hi Brian! I use a PC, Win 10, 128GB or RAM, SSD drive for OS, and 6TB drive for Data drive. I also have a M.2 1TB drive as a "scratch" disk where I point photoshop to use as a temp folder drive. When editing very large files in photoshop (and this only happens when using photoshop), I would get the blue screen with the code Memory_Management. I use an internal drive as my "data drive" where the file is saved, and after the system reboots - that drive is not present on my system at all. The only way to get it back is to do a full cold boot (shut down completely, and restart). The image files I work with are larger than 4GB that seem to cause the issues and it could be anything from saving the file to brush strokes, adding a layer etc. The only other time the system blue-screens is when I'm not at the computer, so that sort of contradicts (only when using photoshop)... but that is how it happens. I looked at the event viewer, but it does not give me much info other than what I know... that the computer restarted unexpectedly. One theory I have is that the hard drive itself may be becoming unstable... so when the system is trying to read/write to the hard drive, that causes it to crash. I did do a full RAM diagnostic and basic HDD scans.. but they have all come back as a PASS. I still have to do a long scan on the HDD. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
