Windows 10: BSOD after Updating Drivers with MSI Live Update Solved

    BSOD after Updating Drivers with MSI Live Update

    Hello Community,
    hopefully you can Help me

    I did a clean Windows 10 installation today, after installing all drivers from my mainboard cd, everything was fine.
    Then i updated the Drivers with the MSI-Live-Update-Tool and restarted the pc.
    This is where i got the BSOD which said "Bad-Pool-Header".
    I had to reset the PC 3 times, then i was able to get back into windows.

    I think it is the "realtek HD audio driver" causing the problem but i am not good in PC-Analystics so i hope to get some help and possibly the new driver link because for the realtek driver i was not able to find a newer version.

    General PC-Specs:
    Computer Type PC/Desktop
    OS Win 10 Pro X64
    CPU Intel I7 4790K not overclocked
    Motherboard MSI Z97 GD65 Gaming
    Memory 32GB
    Graphics Card Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 Gaming

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Sebastian,

    Welcome to the 10forums :)

    It is not your audio driver causing the crashes, but the MSI software.
    My recommendation is to uninstall all MSI programs and install all the drivers from the MSI support page instead.
    4: kd> lmvm amifldrv64
    Browse full module list
    start             end                 module name
    fffff800`fe700000 fffff800`fe705000   amifldrv64 T (no symbols)

    Thanks i will try this when i return home this afternoon.
    The problem / the BSOD occurs everytime i try to install a new audio driver version thats why i thought it might be that.
    I'll start by removing the smart utilities and then trying to install the audio driver.
