1] Run Memory Test
The Event Name RADAR_PRE_LEAK_64 or MemDiagV1 are memory issues. RADAR is Microsoft’s Memory Leak Detector that indicates an app or program is not properly handling memory. Some games, such as BlackOps are known to frequently cause the report to be written, and it’s nothing to worry about. However, in this case of Windows Error Reporting Event ID 1001, you can use Task Manager and/or use Process Explorer from SysInternals to identify the app or game that’s having Memory leak issues – it’s imperative to note that some errant memory “tweaking” could cause some memory to become unusable.
In addition, you can also test for defective physical memory on your PC with the inbuilt Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool or the advanced MemTest86+. Although this is a software issue, where an app or program is not properly managing its memory, rather than a hardware issue, you can run Hardware and Devices Troubleshooter to rule out faulty hardware, which could be due to either physical damage or corrupt driver/software linked to the hardware.
