Windows 10: Brand New Build, Tons of BSOD, Please Help!
Brand New Build, Tons of BSOD, Please Help!
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!

Please update your Realtek network drivers.
Driver Reference Table - rt640x64.sys
Please let me know how it goes, reinstalling Windows several times usually indicates a hardware problem.

Ah, thank you. I had tried to find a reference to rt640x64.sys and it was referenced as a MS/Windows driver from my meager google search (though I see it now). But the Realtek drivers have been updated and so far no BSOD.
Would you recommend I try to boot under driver verifier one more time post-update, or simply wait to see if the computer is functionally stable at this point?
And thanks again for taking a look!

I usually suggest driver verifier when I'm unable to find a driver and it is clearly a driver causing problems.
Unless you want to test your system I don't see a need for it.
During the past 2 weeks i've been having some troubles with my brand new laptop and i want to make sure that this is not a hardware malfunction. Since my experience with debugging windows errors and troubleshooting such issues is...
Hello, I just bought this laptop about two weeks ago. It came with windows 10 installed. But for the last week or so it has been crashing to BSOD about once a day. Nothing specifically seems to be triggering it just randomly happens. Any help would...
This is a brand new build that I completed a few days ago, and I'm pretty baffled. I've done almost everything in my knowledge to fix the issue. Uninstalled drivers, one at a time, unplugged my additional SSD, and HDD drive, I've re-seated my RAM,...
I spent all weekend building up a new computer:
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken X41 106.1 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
There's not much to explain as it can occur randomly, I am guessing it is some driver conflict but I am not tech savvy, regardless, the BSODs are caused by NTFS.sys and ntoskrnl.exe.
