Specs: Windows Vista, Intel Core 2 Duo/Corsair PC-4200 DDR2 4GB
I recently installed 4 new 1GB sticks of Corsair PC2-4200 @ 533MHz ram and I got a BSOD containing an error saying Memory_Management
and at the bottom saying:
**STOP: 0x0000001A (0x00008886,0x82CBF9D4,0x00000501) what does this error mean?

It might mean that one of the new RAM sticks is defective.

FWIW to XP users: When you click on the 'Command Prompt' you are just causing the 'Command prompt' to be displayed. This prompt gives you access to NTVDM.EXE, the 'NT Virtual DOS Manager'.

Are you sure you used the right type/speed RAM for your motherboard? Have you tried using MemTest 86 or the RAM tester on the Vista CD? Have you tired installign only one stick, two sticks, etc?

use memtest86 to test 2 sticks of ram at a time. if either group fails, test each stick from that group individually until you have identified which of the 4 work, and which of the 4 do not.
