How Do I Fix Video Memory Management Internal BSoD?
Install the Latest Graphics Driver Updates
The VIDEO_MEMORY_MANAGEMENT_INTERNAL error indicates the video memory manager has stopped working. Installing the latest driver updates should help you fix the problem.
Go to your video card manufacturer’s website and manually download the latest driver version for the best possible results. Alternatively, use the Device Manager to install the newest driver updates.
- Open the Device Manager.
- Go to Display Adapters.
- Use the drop-down arrow to expand the list of display adapters.
- Right-click on your graphics driver.
- Select Update device.
- Wait until your computer updates the graphics driver.
Don’t forget to check for Windows updates as well. Update your OS to the latest version, restart your computer, and check if you notice any difference.
Disable Overclocking Software
If you’re using an overclocking program to boost your system’s performance, try lowering your GPU overclocking settings and voltage. If the issue persists, turn off overclocking entirely and check if you notice any improvements.
Additionally, force-stop all the programs running in the background. Some of them might be using too much GPU power.
Repair System Files
Corrupted or missing system files may cause all sorts of Blue Screen errors. Use SFC and DISM to automatically detect and repair faulty system files.
- Launch Command Prompt as an admin.
- Run the following DISM commands one by one:
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
- Then, run the sfc /scannow command.
- You can also run the chkdsk /f /r command to check your disk.
- Restart your computer and check if the error persists.

You can also run the program as an administrator to ensure there are no permission issues.
To fix VIDEO MEMORY MANAGEMENT INTERNAL errors on Windows, first, update your graphics driver to the latest version, and install the latest OS updates.
