    Frequent BSOD Varied Error Messages

    Hello, this is a problem I have been having for about a month now. I have been running Windows 10 since July 29th.

    I am getting frequent BSODs, they seem unpredictable, I have noticed no pattern to them.

    My system will crash anytime, including during startup and any time after startup, even after a long period of normal usage. It will sometimes run into a loop of booting and failing to start up. Running applications may have an impact, however I can't be certain because it will sometimes crash while running no applications or idle. I have no startup applications enabled.

    The BSODs have had many different error messages, the variety of error messages seems to be increasing with time. It began with mostly the BAD_POOL_HEADER error and a few others. BAD_POOL_HEADER still seems to be the most frequent message.

    These are error messages I have recorded in the past three days, they are in order of when I saw them and had the time to record them, I may have missed a few.


    To me this looks like an excessive amount of errors.

    When these problems started I ran tests on my system, it failed a memory test, these are the results.

    Pre-boot System Assessment Build 4524
    Device: Memory
    Test: Ground Bounce Test
    Test Results: Fail
    Error Code: 2000-0123
    Msg: Memory - integrity test failed.

    I have run memory tests again as well as other system tests, all of them have passed with no failures.

    I have made sure to update Windows and all of my drivers whenever an update is available.

    I would really appreciate some help with this. I would like to know what any of this means, if I can fix it, what I can do to fix it or prevent further damage? I have uploaded the debug file, I have included all information I felt could be relevant, and I'd be happy to provide any additional information.

    Hi Tyrejj,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    Unfortunately, there are just 4 dump files of the several you mention.
    If you have removed the others with any method, please stop using the method while troubleshooting.

    What tests have you performed exactly?

    Please uninstall everything of Nvidia using Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia

    Yeah I noticed that there weren't many minidump files, I haven't removed any of them, it doesn't look like the MEMORY.dmp file was collected, I can upload that file as well, it could contain more information.

    I used the Display Driver Uninstaller to uninstall NVIDIA. Windows Automatically reinstalled the drivers, so far I have not had another blue screen, but it hasn't been very long. Thank you, I'm really hopeful that was the solution, I was worried my hardware would need to be replaced.

    The tests I ran were just the tests that were available through my BIOS, I cant remember them specifically, I think there were about three different tests.


    Sorry, I spoke too soon, I'm still blue screening, Windows is crashing before it can start up.

    The MEMORY.dmp file will every time be overwritten when you get a BSOD, this so these files won't take too much space as they'll get very large.
    It won't be needed to upload them, I have enough with minidumps
    The memory.dmp file is mostly used to find out how it is going wrong, but I am not yet familiair with that stuff. Thus is the what caused it part for me the most important what is usually in the minidumps founded.

    I was asking about the tests, because some crashes might refer to hardware problems, specific the memory.

    Diagnostic Test


    Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums

    Note   Note

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

    Thank you, Memtest86+ has just completed its 11th pass and has found no errors.

    I have also noticed though that under cores it says I have one active core and one core total, my processor has two cores. This struck me as weird, will this affect the result of my test? I don't know if something was set wrong and I need to try this again or if this might indicate a problem.

    I was also asking about the MEMORY.dmp file because mine seems large, it's about 500,000 KB.

    I don't think so. If I am correct, it could be changeable in the BIOS settings.

    That is a normal size for a memory.dmp file.

    Oh ok, I just wanted to make sure. Should I keep the test running and wait for an error?

    Isn't needed as memtest has completed 11 passes.
    Please note in the BIOS the voltage and frequency of the memory and make sure it is compatible for both the memory and motherboard, also post them so I can check it.

    Please fill in your system specs
    Please follow this tutorial and download the tool. The tool will give you detailed information about your system specs, please fill in your system specs more completely including PSU and cooling system.

    Ok, I've filled in my system specs, I didn't fill in cooling, I only have the fan cooling that was built into my system so I wasn't sure how to fill it in.

    My memory is DDR3, it's voltage is 1.50 V and it's frequency is 800 MHz. My motherboard is compatible with DDR3 RAM up to 1066 MHz.
