Bad Pool Header BSOD when computer sleeps overnight.. help

Toshiba L305D
AMD Turion X2
3GB Ram
Win 7 Ultimate 32 bit

Originally came with Windows Vista Home Premium.

Recently upgraded. I did a fresh install... and now whenever my computer goes into sleep mode, for an extended period of time, ie over night, when I resume it blue screens to Bad Pool Header crash.

I'm pretty sure all of my drivers are updated. Although the windows 7 driver on toshiba's site is in beta, and i think that's the problem but i really have no idea..

someone help please, and thank you in advance.

Virtually all the same, bad pool header (memory) probably caused by a driver. Please run these two tests.




Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program.

Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.



Driver verifier

Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Windows 7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Thanks, I will run the two tests now, but i forgot too mention, this problem never happened when running vista, the machine ran perfectly, never had a crash or blue screen too date, upgraded too 7 and immediately started having the issues, it seems whenever the computer comes out of sleep mode for more than an hour or two, it'll blue screen. It will run normally for hours with regular operation, if i shutdown, boot up, no issues, but if i leave the laptop on and it goes into sleep mode, and hour or two later when it wakes, it'll crash about 30 secs after loading the shell.

anyway, don't know if that makes sense, but running the tests.
