    BSOD while using any broswer.

    So, this is new.

    Chrome, Firefox and Edge all cause a BSOD with the error BAD_POOL_HEADER.

    No other program cause the computer to crash.

    I've tried reinstalling Chrome and Firefox and the error persists.

    What does Event Viewer Say? Where do I start???

    Here's a list of all just before BSOD:


    I'm sort of clueless what could be causing this. I've never seen this kind of problem where all browsers cause a BSOD.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    1: Test your RAM

    If the error is caused by a faulty RAM memory, check your RAM using the Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool.
    To do so, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start
    2. Type in Memory Diagnostics Tool in the search box
    3. Right-click on Memory Diagnostics Tool
    4. Choose Run as Administrator
    5. Follow the instructions to begin the diagnostic process

    2 Update all the drivers and make sure no warning sign appear in device manager

    Disable Fast Startup

    Fast Startup is enabled by default in Windows. Follow these steps to disable it.

    1. Press Win+X (Windows logo key and R key) at the same time. And select Power Options on the pop-up menu.
    2. Select Choose what the power button does in left panel.
    3. Click on Change settings that are currently unavailable.

    4. Uncheck the box next to Turn on fast startup (recommended) and click on Save changes button
    5. Reboot your PC and see if the error persists.
