Windows 7: BSOD: Various messages

BSOD: Various messages


I keep getting BSOD on my PC. It's about 14 months old though I replaced the GPU and RAM at around Christmas 2011.

Messages recieved were:

Bad Pool Header
Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal
System Thread Exception
System Service Exception

My PC is overclocked but as far as I can tell it is stable. It will do a full 24 hours in Prime95 without so much as breaking a sweat. I can run Prime95 now on full blend and it will not BSOD.


Idle CPU temps are around 28c. Load CPU temps around 40c, via Coretemp. System in general is pretty cool.

The majority of the time I have had BSOD is when playing Skyrim, which is heavily modified and am also running a ENB. I suspected this might have been causing the problem but a couple of times it BSOD on shut down and once when exiting the Skyrim application.

I have tried numerous tasks, check disk, Memtest, Prime95, Furmark, etc to stress the hardware etc but it won't BSOD when running any of those. Memtest showed no errors. I have tried running the PC on stock clocks but it still BSOD. I have just recently changed from AMD 12.1 drivers to AMD 12.2 drivers (so far no BSOD but the change was made only half an hour ago).

I've had this problem about a month now, after the first week I reinstalled Windows 7 but it persisted. I've tried to troubleshoot the issue myself but to no avail. Last week I ran Driver sweeper, deleted my old dump files, and waited a week to see what would happen. I've had 7 BSOD in this past week (for which I've attached the dump files).

System specs (sorry for links, copy and pasted):

AMD Phenom 965BE @ 4.0ghz

I haven't updated this since I reinstalled but I was getting BSOD before reinstallation with the original updated driver (and firmware) too.

I will however update the driver and mouse firmware to check and be sure. Thanks.
