Question

Memory management

Hi,
I have a inspiron 7000 dell. My laptop default operating system is windows 10. I tried to install linux as secondary operating system. Since I installed linux, whenever i want to bring my windows up, it shows memory management error and after more than 10 times trying, it comes up. I erased the hard and installed the windows alone, but still I have this problem. It looks that that linux has made some change on format of my hard or something similar. Is there any solution for this issue?

Clarification Request
I doubt linux harmed it

More likely you have a problem with your RAM. Did you run the memtest program that is available when linux boots up? If you still have the linux DVD, then boot to it, and run that test.

Memory managment error

Restore your backup of windows to before you tried to install linux.

Next step is to do a factory restore.

Memory management error

Thank you, but the issue is that I do not have any back up or restore point for my windows. I need a solution to repair anything that happened to my hard drive during this linux installation?

Answer
How did you erase that HDD?

Here I simply delete the partitions.

But many change the BIOS from defaults to get Linux up or installed. Be sure to put that back to factory settings too.

Re: how

No need to reset the BIOS if you didn't change it. And if you changed it, you know how you did, and so you know how to undo it.

Can you tell more about "erased the hard and installed the windows alone"? After a correct install on an empty hard disk from a good install disc or stick Windows should run good enough to install specific drivers". So either there's a hardware issue, or it's a bad install medium, or you did something wrong.
