Cause


The store component detected a corruption in its data structures.

This bugcheck can occur by memory corruption due to physical memory access. The causes for physical memory corruption include:

  1. Defective RAM hardware
  2. A driver or device incorrectly modifying physical pages via an incorrect DMA operation or associated MDL.
  3. Corruption caused by a hardware device or firmware corrupting memory, such as firmware illegally modifying physical pages across a power transition.
