    Brand New Build, Tons of BSOD, Please Help!

    Hi all,

    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.

    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.

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. Here's an image from BlueScreenView 40292
