I just completed a new white box about two days ago, and I have been getting numerous BAD_POOL_HEADER BSODs. Some have been at load (gaming for instance), others have been while idle, surfing the internet, etc. Driver verifier wouldn't let me complete a Windows boot, always coming up with a new culprit (first it was a driver from the Asus AI Suite 3, then the Bitdefender Antivirus, then a driver from a Samsung SSD manager, then a driver from a Crucial SSD manager. Finally Driver Verifier stopped giving me a specific problem driver and simply reported DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION with no driver specified.
I went through several full Windows fresh installs, but always the BSOD returned. Today I ran two iterations of Memtest64 and it did not pick up any memory errors. I ran disk repair scans on my drives (2 SSDs, 1 HDD), with no errors detected. I was at the end of my rope so I decided to do a fresh install and run driver verifier post install when things should be their cleanest and least problematic.
At this point I have installed windows, installed the manufacturer's drivers (chipset, audio, and network), and fully updated windows. That's it. There are zero additional programs or drivers installed. I ran driver verifier and it still reports DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION. I have no idea what the problem is.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
