maxtor one touch II bad pool header

Question: maxtor one touch II bad pool header

I have a maxtor one touch II external drive. It has dantz retrospect 1.1 software to backup with. I recently tried a backup and when I used the software, it started, but I got a bad pool header blue screen. I can access all of the files on the drive without any problem, just can't use the backup feature. I have WindowsXP, Dell 8300, 3gb RAM. I updated my RAM and added a larger hard drive within the last 2-3 months. I attached some files from the minidump folder. I also have tried chkdsk on both my c: and g: (external drive letter).

Preferred Solution: maxtor one touch II bad pool header

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: maxtor one touch II bad pool header

download windows debugging tools, then get software called winternals administration pack........

it will analyse the crash dump and give you the most likely source where the crash originated from.

Good day all, I hope someone can help me with a consistent BSOD problem I've had today.

Every time my Steam client starts up and attempts to download its latest update, I get a BSOD with a Bad Pool Caller (one time out of about a dozen crashes it was Bad Pool Header instead). I have tried the Steam support, but their guides are focused on the program crashing, not the whole computer and I have had no luck fixing it there.

I downloaded DM Log Collector and attached my report, but I want to point out now that Windows has not produced dmp files for any of these crashes, even though the correct options are checked in the "Startup and Recovery" settings.

Thank you kindly for any help you can offer.

PS - I'm headed to bed, I'll be back tomorrow around 7am EDT.

Answer:BSOD on Steam Update, Bad Pool Caller or Bad Pool Header, no dmp files

Make sure your dump logging is enabled.

Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click System.
Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Check Write an even to the system log, and Automatically restart.

Hello i would like to know why im crashing so often, literally i crash 4 or 5 times daily at random times, and i keep getting those BSOD's, but all this started when i updated to Win10 (I knew that updating at day 0 was a bad idea z.z )
 
I will leave the minidumps attached so you can analyze and hopefully tell me what is failing, but i already suspect a driver failing because no win10 support.

Answer:Getting lots of "Bad Pool Caller" and "Bad Pool Header" since i updated to Win10

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum):  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/Here's what I got from the minidumps, there may be more info in the other reports that I requested in the above paragraph. From the minidumps, try uninstalling MalwareBytes.  It's mwac.sys driver appears to be the culprit in the memory dumps. Also, Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen both dtsoftbus01.sys and dtscsibus.sys blamed on several occasions).Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):  New link (15 Aug 2012):  http://www.duplexsecure.com/downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).Alternate link:  http://www.disc-tools.com/download/sptdManual procedure here:  http://daemonpro-help.com/en/problems_and_solutions/registry_and_sptd_problems.htmlAnalysis:The following is for informational purposes only.[font=lucida console]**************************Mon Aug  3 01:43:40.404 2015 (UTC - 4:00)**************************

I have an Emachine T2984 and Windows XP Pro Service Pack 2; I have gotten a  blue screen for one month with the message "Bad-Pool-Caller" most of the time and 1-2 times "Bad-Pool-Header". It is very hard for me to point to a program that had caused that. It could be Zune after I updated the software(!?)  but I uninstalled Zune and I continue to get the error; once, as  I remember, it happened when I start Windows Media Player.  I checked Device Manager and in Non-Plug and Play devices section,  HTTP has an exclamation yellow mark. I un-installed HTTP device but after I rebooted my computer it was still there.When I  had Zune installed (after updating its software) and I tried to charge my Zune, the USB port began to make noise, like I was plugging and unplugging My Zune non-stop. I tried my flash drive with the same port and it worked normally.Thanks Dias de verano

Question: Bad Pool Header

Hi,

I have a Dell E1405 running on XP Sp2 MCE 2005, and recently I installed the Ricoh driver for the built-in memory card readers. I made sure to follow Dell's recommended order of driver installation (the chipset first, then the audio, etc. etc.)

everything seemed to be working fine until I actually tested the memory card reader by inserting a SD card, and i got the blue screen of death with a "Bad Pool Header" error message.

I rebooted without the memory card and it works fine.

Also, i cannot uninstall the drivers because windows re-installs them on reboot. I contacted Dell and they don't have an older version of the drivers.

It all used to work fine, but that was with older drivers i think.

Thanks!

I have seen a few other questions about this problem, but I didn't want to hijack any other topics.
I keep getting the BSOD randomly, with the "Bad Pool Header" error. It can happen at any time - not always when I'm running a program, sometimes on start up.
PC: Dell Studio XPS 9100
Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel Core i7-960 processor (8MB L2 cache, 3.20 GHz
Memory - 12GB Tri Channel DDR3 SDRAM @ 1333MHz - 6 DIMMS
Video Card - ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5
 
I ran a Malwarebytes Pro scan, which came up clean. I also restored to a previous restore point, which sometimes worked for awhile, but now doesn't.
 
Is there anyone who can help me out?
 
Thanks,

Question: Bad Pool Header

[/SIZE]Hey all,

I have been encountering various problems with my computer.

I thought it might be software related so it was reformatted. However, the computer still restarted without advance notice and sometimes did not log me in onto windows. I get a blue screen every now and then, but the screen doesnt stay for long so i only manage to take short glimpses of it. The last time it came about, I managed to read BAD_POOL_HEADER. At this point I'm seriously thinking there might be something intermittengly wrong with hardware. What do you think is wrong? What can i do to fix it?

Thanking you in advance.

Regards,

Question: bad pool header

Hello everyone! I've been getting a few BSODs here about this problem. It's been happening ever since a friend (unhappily, now deceased) built my computer. When the computer restarts after the BSOD I get a message that says my system has recovered from a serious error and do I want to send an error report to Microsoft. The only info I get from them is that an unknown device driver has been incorrectly installed. I have gone through the procedure to check the drivers, and nothing shows as a problem. The error message I get on the BSOD is BAD_POOL_HEADER. The memory will dump, the computer will reboot itself, and then everything works again, sometimes for weeks. Then I get a BSOD again. Today it went through the same thing at startup, and this time it didn't reboot itself, it told me to contact my system administrator. Unfortunately, that's me, and I don't have a clue about computers. Can anyone tell me what to do about this? Thanks!

Did you recently install any new software or hardware ?

From Safe Mode navigate Start>Run & type "msconfig"

set msconfig to boot in diagnostic mode and see if you can boot to desktop.

Question: Bad Pool Header

What is a "bad pool header". When it comes up it demands to reboot. Things will be just fine and then occasionally it will come up again and demands a reboot. Is there any "fix". What is going on, any way to fix it, to stop the process. What and why is it occurring?

Answer:Bad Pool Header

Don't know what it is - didn't understand the stuff on microsoft web site about this. Happened to me only one, a couple of weeks ago when using edge. Has not happened since, so hope updates might have fixed it. Have had win 10 on machine since 29th July and it was very flaky in the first couple of weeks. Seems much more stable now.

There was only one hit on Google. Here's the quote."After many more tests or trials I found the culprit of this obscure BSOD: It is caused by Acronis True Image (Versions 9 - 11) which creates faulty backup images if the image is created from one SATA hard drive to another SATA hard drive or external USB hard drive. This is confirmed 100% by various tests I've performed."How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Need to know why this error code appears and then how to fix

Answer:Bad Pool Header

Did you have a BSOD? If so you may be better served to post in the BSOD section.






A pool header issue is a problem with Windows memory allocation. Device driver issues are probably the most common, but this can have diverse causes including bad sectors or other disk write issues, and problems with some routers. (By theory, RAM problems would be suspect for memory pool issues).

Question: Bad pool header

OK.. after that BSOD appeared first time, I had hard time reinstalling Windows but managed to succeed (now i apparently have 3 Windows Versions which of 2 i still have to delete, manually folder by folder because of administration rights, anyway thats a different story..)

my Problem is that during Start up and after I choose the first and correct Windows it gives me Option of Windows Startup Repair or Start Normal.. when i click Repair it starts that loading datas bar and then the BSOD..
when i choose Normal Start its only by luck I get to my Windows desktop, the other times it gets me to the WINDOWS word but only a red dot of the Windows Logo loads and it restarts my PC..
i could live like this, needing several Start up tries, but I'd of course like to fix it..

what ive done so far:
RAM check (i only have one RAM bar)
chkdsk
ccleaner registry cleaner

what else can i possibly do?

thanks

Though not sure if that's to blame or something is unstable as my PC is overclocked, but it pretty much never crashes otherwise, so i want to confirm what the issue is as i can't reproduce it i think.

Answer:what is a bad pool header

Windows XP Service Pack 2 is usually a good thing. However, it's not without it's problems. Most notably is it's crashing of more 'sloppily' written drivers. If you're now experiencing the  BAD_POOL_HEADER Blue Screen Of Death on bootup and have a NetGear wireless network card in your machine, then remove it. More than likely this will allow you to boot. I've also heard of some LinkSys wireless network cards causing this same error as well. As of the writing of this article, there are no new drivers from either LinkSys or NetGear. I've also been unable to find any support on their site about the issue. If your NetGear card uses the  Atheros chipset, then you may be able to use those drivers to get back up and running.Note: If you still can't boot even with the card removed, or into safe mode, you'll need to use the recovery console to disable the driver.The Indexing Service will, on occasion, also cause SP2 to crash. I suspect that machines that start to exhibit this symptom after having SP2 installed have greater underlying issues. Anyway, to stop the indexing service from running, then click Start->Run type services.msc, and click OK.Indexing Service BAD_POOL_HEADERDouble click the Indexing Service and set the startup type to either manual, or disabled. By default, I believe it's manual. (You'll notice on this machine it's not running, and is set to manual. I haven't changed the setting at al... Read more

Question: Bad pool header

I tried to install an old Sound card to my new PC. After installing the software on the original disc and foolishly ignoring the "may be uncompatible with XP" warnings my sysytem crashes. I changed the BIOS to fail-safe defaults and now Windows loads up incredibly slowly (10min) then all my programs start to load then I get the blue screen with the message "bad pool header" - what can I do to resolve this ?

Answer:Bad pool header

Can you boot into safe mode (press F5 at startup) and from there use the system restore to go back to before installation of the sound card?

Question: Bad Pool Header?!

hey guys
a while ago i upgraded to a 64 bit machine.
i bought an amd64 3200 and a msi k8n neo platinum board and transfered my existing components onto this board. Anyways, after my upgrade i found out that my system was unstable because of my ram (ocz pc3200 dual channel kit) so i replaced it with one stick of 512 kingston hyperx ram. THIS is when i started to get some serious problems. my system started to crash from doing ANYTHING. at first it took more intense applications to crash the system like doom3...then even using MS word or surfing the internet got really frustrating from all the crashes. so after countless hours of scouring the net for help, i decided to suck it up and get it serviced by someone. They told me i had a bad board, so they sent it away for me and now i have a new one(maybe some board just fixed..i dunno). so i finished putting my system back together just a few hours ago...and had no problems until.....i was doing homework. the blue screen of death that ive gotten to know all-so-well shows up again and tells me i have a "bad pool header"(which means nothing to me). So with my mainboard ruled out, what can be the cause of this problem and what can i do to fix it? sorry i made this msg a little long but i thought giving you the past of my system might help when it comes to determing whats wrong.

Answer:Bad Pool Header?!

This may just be a random guess, but take another look at how your CPU is mounted, that the HSF is nicely attached, and none of the pins are even slightly bent. It sounds like some random data corruption, and since you've ruled out the board and RAM, it doesn't leave much. Of course, I'm assuming you're running at stock speeds/voltage now. I only say this as it was a similar problem to an old Athlon I came across, where the guy installed the CPU a little bit sloppily. Hope this helps

Answer:Bad Pool Header??!!

I'm dealing with this same problem at work right now. it seems to happen a lot after SP2 installs. From what I've found online it can be caused by bad drivers and other system files. I'm about to try a soft restore and just reinstall windows on top of it's self. Hopefully this will fix it and if that doesn't work I'm going to try a full restore, but I really want to avoid that.

Question: Bad Pool Header

Hello there. About two days ago, this started to happen: I'd boot up the computer, and then after a couple of minutes, I'd get the blue screen with "BAD POOL HEADER" or "PFN LIST CORRUPT" written on it. I hear that it may be caused by malfunctioning hardware, but being the technologically unsavvy person I am, I would rather not touch it without some professional guidance by you kind people.

What should I do? I appreciate it.

Hey everyone,

I've been having issues with this computer for a couple months now. Taken in to IT at my school, they eventually reformatted the computer because of frequent BSOD problems. It used to happen whenever I would have a lot of images on the computer (I.E. every time I would google image search the word "green") The blue screen would then pop up and I wouldn't have time to read what the cause was. After reformatting it began to blue screen infrequently again and now, any time I go to google maps it blue screens. The new cause every time is "Bad Pool Header".

Attached is the info given from "System" and "Minidump" diagnosis of SF Diagnostic Tool.

Let me know if I need to provide any more information. I have no clue what to do and am stumped - even IT is stumped (lol). I would love to be able to use this computer again without worrying if it's going to BSOD at any moment.

Thanks in advance,
Dan

I have been battling problems with bsod for the past month. This is a brand new PC that I custom built and this problem is blowing my mind. I have replaced the motherboard since my last post and have added some new RAM...here are the new specs. ASUSM4A79XTD EVO Mboard. AMD Athlon II x2 regor 3.2 ghz, 8gb of OCZ reaper ddr3 RAM, a Western Digital Caviar Green 750 GB 7200 HD, an ASUS Nvidia gtx 460 GPU, and a basic dvd cd burner. I also am using a wireless network adapter which is made by rosewill. Here is my problem: Upon booting my computer and selecting which user to log in as i will make it to my desktop, about 50% of the time it will blue screen...however I have had 3 different bsod errors. First was Memory Management, Second was Page fault in non paged area, and today came Bad Pool Header. I have monitored my cpu usage and it is not irregular, I have tested my RAM and results showed that it was fine, I have also ran a chkdisk on my HD. My guess is that my hard drive is failing. I have also tried reinstalling windows. I dont think that any software I have would cause this, I am just running typical stuff, Itunes, A few benchmark programs, nvidia monitor, firefox, etc. I have also done a virus scan which came back clean...Help would be greatly appreciated as I am a college student with tons of work that needs to be done and having to worry about loosing my info is stressful..

It most probably points to your Kaspersky security program (kl1.sys). Tdx.sys is also listed in the stack text - which points to a networking component of this error (which is why it happened while using IE/FF). Please do the following:

Answer:[BSOD] Bad Pool Header

Hello and welcome to the forum.

I looked at both of your dumps. Neither give a specific cause; both both indicate memory corruption. To begin your troubleshooting, I recommend that you uninstall Kaspersky using this removal tool: Tool. Kaspersky is known to cause BSOD's on some Win 7 systems. You can try it again once you get your system stable; but I do not recommend doing so. Download and install Microsoft Security Essentials in its place.

You have a couple of outdated drivers loading on your system; one is quite obsolete. Outdated drivers can and do cause memory corruption and BSOD's. Update these drivers.

Try uninstalling Norton and see if that helps.Make sure that you use another antivirus while testing to see if the BSOD's are stopped. If that doesn't fix it, then Please run this report collecting tool so that we can provide a complete analysis: (from the pinned topic at the top of the forum)   http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/FYI - I don't often use the Perfmon report, so if it doesn't work please just let me know.NOTE:  On problem systems it can take up to 20 minutes for the log files to complete.  Please be patient and let it run.If you still have problems with it running, there's an alternate tool here (direct download link):  https://github.com/blueelvis/BSOD-Inspector/releases/download/1.0.5/BSODInspector-1.0.5.exeNOTE:Please zip up the (.ZIP) files - do not use .RAR or other compression utilities. .ZIP is the type file that can be uploaded to the forums.

Is anyone having trouble with a blue screen crash that says "Bad Pool Header"?  When I insert certain Data CD's, and CD-RW's This happens.  The Microsoft error box that pops up upon reboot thinks it is an issue with my Norton Inernet Security 2009.  These CD's did not crash with NIS2008.  Also If I shut off Norton, some of the CD's will start loading again without problem.  I saw somewhere that a person had a similar problem that continued until NIS2009 was totally removed. Skippy

Answer:Bad Pool Header crash

Looks like this is most likely a conflict between Norton and Roxio based ThinkPad media software.  If you've got DLA installed, you might want to consider dumping it.  It's a known troublemaker.  Do you have the latest updates for Norton and the ThinkPad software?  If you don't mind trying some different software, CDBurnerXP is free and works well for the basics, which is all most people do anyway.  It's much less farty and bloated than the ThinkPad software.  I use it myself.  It works in Vista despite being labeled XP and even burns Blu-rays.

Answer:BSOD Bad Pool Header

Your UEFI/BIOS (version A06) dates from 2010.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.FYI - W8 and W10 communicate more with the UEFI/BIOS than previous versions of Windows, so it's important to ensure that the UEFI/BIOS is kept up to date (and that outdated UEFI/BIOS' may be the cause of some compatibility issues).Although you appear to have a reasonable number of Windows Update hotfixes for this version of your OS, please double check for any new Windows Updates.  It only takes one update to cause a problem, so it's essential that you have all of them.  The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when checking or updating.I'm late for work, but it looks like GEARAspiWDM.sys is to blame.Most likely this driver comes from iTunes, but may be associated with other CD/DVD softwarePlease uninstall it, then see if the BSOD's stop. I'll post more later today/tomorrow AM

Please help me before i torch my computer...

I have bought a lacie 1tb external hd (designed by neil poulton, for those playing at home) and have had a great deal of trouble recently... now im no tech expert, but am reasonable at sorting stuff like this out.

put simply, i plug it in, and immediately have trouble getting the device to be recognised. I can get it to happen however. I then go to transfer files etc to the hd and that usually brings on a system crash or a blue screen error quoting bad_pool_header. I have been stuffing around with this forever. I went to the microsoft site and was informed that i had to install sp1 and sp2... neither would install. I was also told to install some other file (about 75mb) but that errored out too... Nothing i have tried has worked and im close to going postal....

Can anyone PLEASE advise me as to what to do to get this lacie drive to work?

Answer:BSOD - bad pool header

Not too sure what that text file is, never seen anything like that before. Please follow this guide to attach your minidumps to your next post.





First locate your minidump files, they are usually found by clicking on your C: drive, in Windows Explorer, then click on Windows to view the contents. If your operating system is installed under a different drive letter then look there. They should be stored under a file called minidump.The files will have a .dmp extension.

Zip up at least 6 of the most recent files into one zip folder and save on your desktop (if there are less then just zip up what you have).

NOTE To zip up a file in Windows (all versions). Right-click the file or folder, click on Send To, and then click Compressed (zipped) Folder and save it to your desktop.
Open Windows Explorer, click on Desktop in the left column so you can see the zip file. In the left column click on C: > Windows > Minidump and then drag & drop any additional .dmp files into the zip folder.
? Below the Message Box click on Go Advanced. Then scroll down until you see a button, Manage Attachments. Click on that and a new window opens.
? Click on the Browse button, find the zip folder you made earlier and doubleclick on it.
? Now click on the Upload button. When done, click on the Close this window button at the bottom of the page.
? Enter your message-text in the message box, then click on Submit Message/Reply.Click to expand...

With my limited knowledge of computers, I hesitate to make this post, but here goes.
 
The blue reboot screen with error bad_pool_header appears about once or twice a day and usually while using Internet Explorer, but it also happened once while using MS Edge. Chrome has been crash free so far.
 
This is a Dell XPS 8500 running Windows 10 Home, build 10886.164 with 16MB of RAM. I am  using antivirus Bitdefender, Malwarebytes, and Crash Plan as my backup system. I have two external backup drives that  I disconnected as a test, but the error crashes continued.  Also tried running under a different account, but no joy. It has been suggested from another source that I reinstall the OS, but thought I would run this by you guys first.
 
. I tried to run the perfmon/report but got "An error occurred while attempting to generate this report." The SysnativeFileCollectionApp is attached.
 
A Windows diagnostic reported "all tests passed." There are several errors and warnings in Event Viewer but pretty sure that is in a foreign language.
 
Ran the current CCleaner as well.
 
This has been going on for nearly a month and is so frustrating. Any help much appreciated.

Hi all,

I haven't had any issues with my PC until this morning when it BSOD and said "Bad pool header". I only updated Avast and installed Office 2013 this morning. Tried safe mode but still BSOD. Ran Regcleaner. My dump file is attached.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Answer:BSOD Bad pool header

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

A Friend of mine asked me for PC help and I did not find the issue.

Whenever he starts his PC (win 8), between 30 and 45 minutes afterwards it crashes with BSOD and the info "BAD POOL HEADER". BlueScreenView revieled that ntoskrnl.exe is always involved, sometimes some .sys-files, but more times than not only ntoskrnl.

Since I had no chance to physically inspect the PC, bad memory could be a reason but inside windows the PC crashes before memtest is able to complete and running a bootable memtest solution is not possible on this pc (locked bios).

Here are the logs: ASUS-20_05_2016_221334_71.zip

Answer:BSOD - Bad Pool Header

I can't tell much from a single dump but from your description, the BSOD type and the loaded drivers contained in the dump, it's probably a bad device driver or a driver that's being 'interfered' with by a security driver - most likely a driver related directly to networking.

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010, it's about three years old and running Windows 7. About a week ago I was running a bunch of programs simultaneously and the whole system froze up. Or rather, it didn't freeze, but it was running extremely... extremely... slowly. It seemed like the computer was working a second at a time instead of continuously; I could hear the computer work for a second then stop, work for a second, then stop... if I moved my mouse across the screen, it would also stop, then keep going. The CPU usage in the Task Manager would simultaneously fluctuate between 0% to around 50% (I think).

Then a little later I got a blue screen, something about a Bad Pool Header. The computer restarted, did a disk check without finding any errors, and I haven't seen it again. I'm not all that concerned with this, but I'm guessing it's related.

The problem with the stop-go processing has happen four or so times since the first time, it usually happens when I insert an external drive (ipod or external hard drive) or when I leave the laptop on and sitting open for a while without using it. I have to restart the computer to get it to go away.

Any ideas? Thanks.

I am assuming the problem lied with google chrome or that by trying to install the beta 9 ie that some files were changed although it did not complete and whatever did change fixed the problem of the bad pool header.

hi minigts,
 
If you're getting a Bad Pool Header bluescreen after waking up the computer from sleep, try to:
1.Run BlueScreenView to diagnose what file is causing the BSOD.
2. If the cause of the BSOD is the Intel Rapid Start driver, try to reconfigure Intel Rapid Start Technology, steps 5-6 on this guide by Yikes2000
3. Run chkdsk to see if there's any errors/corruption on the SSD
4. Run a diagnostic on the SSD (try HD Tune)

So I took the plunge. Saved my data and formatted the C partition.
But when I installed from the XP CD, and when it came to Windows starting, I got BAD POOL HEADER.

The C partition being newly formatted, there can surely be no virus issues, nor driver conflicts. Nothing has been installed yet!

Answer:BSOD bad pool header

Hi ssjs and welcome to the forum. I looked at your three most recent dumps and all three are Bad Pool Header. This indicates a memory problem, most likely memory corruption. Several things can cause memory corruption, especially outdated drivers. Outdated drivers. One of your dumps indicates netw5v64.sys, your Intel Wireless WiFi Link Driver, as a possible cause. This driver is out of date. Try updating from this link: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx.

I also find the following out of date drivers loaded on your system. Update thiese drivers through the links probided.

Update your wireless driver and take care of the drivers above. Reboot and let's see if your system is more stable. Post back and let us know. If you get another BSOD, upload it and we will go from there.

Answer:Bsod bad pool header

Hello Mitch and welcome to Seven Forums.

According to the dump files you provided, there are a few problematic drivers listed. They include: igdkmd64.sys (Intel Graphics driver); csrss.exe (manages graphical instruction sets); dxgkrnl.sys (DirectX Graphics Kernel); and win32k.sys (a multi-user win32 driver.) The Intel driver can be updated via the Intel download center while the csrss, DirectX and win32 are done through Windows Updates.

Intel Download Center

According to a Yamakasi Catleap forum (post # 7591), the current Catleaps are not meant to be overclocked unless specifically stated in the owner's info. If you're OCing suggest you return to default settings.

Also suggest running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

Please help. I've been battling with this for months now. First I sent my memory to the store and it was checked by the supplier founding no fault. I even tested it with memtest86 even before I brought it there. Memory issue is now cleared.

Motherboard: AsRock 880GM-Le (3 months old)
ProcessOr: AMD Athlon II X4 640 (3 months old)
Memory: 2GB DDR3 PC1333 Geil (3 months old)
Hard Drives: 1 hitach 160 GB 7200 rpm ATA;(4 years) 1 500 GB Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm SATA 2 (2 years); 1 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 rpm SATA 2 (6 months)
Optical Drive: Lite-ON CDRW 52X (7 years)
USB Mouse and USB Keyboard
Operating System: Windows 7, 32 Bit
Power Supply: 600 Watts Orion (Generic) (3 months old)
OEM: N/A

Does this has something to do with my Power Supply?
This will happen regardless if how long I use my computer. Sometimes it happens a few minutes after turning it on.

attached here are my dumps.

any suggestion would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

BTW: I already formatted my C drive.

Just finished running the advance test of seagate tools (from hirens bootcd) for my 1 TB Drive and it found no errors. I'm about to test the other 2 hard drives that I have.

I also noticed last night that when I tried to burn the hirens bootcd using the one that it came with it (I forgot the name but you probably know that it starts with something like copybcc).

by removing the other 2 hard drives that have could solve the issue?

Acer Aspire ES1-711-P14W with Windows 10. I had Windows 10 since Insiders builds and a few weeks ago it started BSODing frequently, mainly DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION and BAD_POOL_HEADER, I thought a reinstall would fix the issue but it didn't, I still had 2 BSODs with the BAD_POOL_HEADER message, one was before I installed the Anniversary Update and one after, both while using Chrome. Running Windows 10 Version 1607 Build 14393.10

 DRIVER VERIFIER

   Warning
Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.
Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.


   Note
Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

Hello,

Thank you in advance for all help; it is much appreciated. I like to fall asleep to a movie, so I play a video on VLC. When the video has finished, Sleep# puts the computer to sleep. The next morning, I woke the computer from sleep mode to see the BSOD.

I have tried updating drivers and windows, checking for hard disk errors, and checking for memory problems. Attached is the zip file as requested in thread "BSOD - Posting Instructions"

Any other info needed won't be a problem.

Thank you
