Bug Check 0xAC: HAL_MEMORY_ALLOCATION

The HAL_MEMORY_ALLOCATION bug check has a value of 0x000000AC. This bug check indicates that the hardware abstraction layer (HAL) could not obtain sufficient memory.

Important Info If You Have Received a STOP Code

bsod

If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss.

For information about how to recover from this error, see Resolving Blue Screen errors in Windows.

HAL_MEMORY_ALLOCATION Parameters

The following parameters appear on the blue screen.

ParameterDescription

1

The allocation size

2

0

3

A pointer to a string that contains the file name

4

Reserved

 

Cause

The HAL could not obtain non-paged memory pool for a system critical requirement.

These critical memory allocations are made early in system initialization, and the HAL_MEMORY_ALLOCATION bug check is not expected. This bug check probably indicates some other critical error such as pool corruption or massive consumption.
