Bad_Pool_Header Error BSOD Fix



If you're getting a BAD_POOL_HEADER BSOD (blue screen of death), you're experiencing a crash due to memory corruption. This could be due to faulty hardware such as RAM, or due to a buggy or incompatible driver.  In this case, check the items below for running chkdsk, sfc, and driver verifier.  Driver Verifier is the proper thing to turn to for memory corruption issues such as this, and chkdsk and sfc can turn up disk or file corruption.

Bad_Pool_Header Error BSOD Fix. How to fix the bad pool header error.

General guidance for dealing with memory corruption:

Consider running chkdsk on all partitions.  Let chkdsk complete on each partition and see if that helps.

For memory corruption cases such as you seem to be experiencing, it can be helpful to use Driver Verifier.  To enable Driver Verifier, click Start->verifier.exe->OK->Create standard settings- >Next->Select driver names from a list->Next->sort by Provider->select all non-Microsoft drivers->Finish, and OK your way out  of the dialog.

Then, reboot and use the system as you normally would, and wait for a problem.  In the event that the system does not boot  completely after enabling driver verifier, boot into Safe Mode and run driver verifier, and tell it to delete the changes. If it DOES fix the problem you are all set.

Also consider running SFC /SCANNOW.

Consider testing memory with Windows Memory Diagnostic or memtest86. Note that memory that passes tests is not necessarily  good memory - it just hasn't failed a test.  Consider systematically eliminating RAM from the system - run with a couple of  modules for a while, and see how things go. Then try the other modules.

Other common suggestions include ensuring drivers are up to date (including video drivers), as well as ensuring that you're  using the latest BIOS.
