    Bsod bad_pool_header

    My computer bsod randomly when i'm browsing the internet (once every 6 days or so). I'm thinking it's a driver issue but am unsure which drivers to reinstall. This computer is around 3 months old which i built.

    So i'm gonna ask some of the other techs here to do a second opinion on this.
    Cause the info i found about your mobo is inconclusive.
    In the files, i found that your Motherboard is : H110M-H-CF by Gygabite.
    But if you google that, you will end up with GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1151 - GA-H110M-H DDR3 (rev. 1.0)
    Over there is specifies :
    1. Support for DDR3/DDR3L 1600/1333 MHz memory modules

    Now according to your dump-files, you are running the following modules:
    VengeanceĀ® LPX 8GB (2x4GB) DDR4 DRAM 2133MHz C13 Memory Kit - Black (CMK8GX4M2A2133C13)
    [Memory Device (Type 17) - Length 40 - Handle 0043h]
            Physical Memory Array Handle  0042h
            Memory Error Info Handle      [Not Provided]        
              Total Width                   64 bits
              Data Width                    64 bits
              Size                          4096MB
              Form Factor                   09h - DIMM
              Device Set                    [None]
              Device Locator                ChannelA-DIMM0
              Bank Locator                  BANK 0
              Memory Type                   1ah - Specification Reserved
              Type Detail                   0080h - Synchronous
              Speed                         2133MHz            
              Part Number                   CMK8GX4M2A2133C13
    So it seems that you are running memory faster than your mobo can handle (2133mhz vs 1600/1333 mhz) AND its DDR3 vs DDR4.
    But as i started out, i want a second opinion on this diagnotic.
    Or can you confirm the Mobo i linked above is indeed your MOBO ?

    This one is my motherboard GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1151 - GA-H110M-H (rev. 1.0)

    It supports DDR4.

    Wauw, that's not at all confusing :/
    Even now i had to look twice to notice the difference.
    Who does that, the productpages are almost identical :/

    Anyway sorry for my little rant.

    So we can scratch theorie above then.

    I still think we do need to look at the RAM module, since its being mentioned a lot.

    Probably caused by : memory_corruption
    Try to run the following memory tests, see what happens:

    I ran memtest and it came up with some errors

    Do i have to replace my ram?

    This certainly means there are problems with your memory, but now you have to test if it is your Module(s) or Slot(s) of your Mobo.
    How to do this extended testing, see the endpart of this tutorial MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 10 Forums .
