Windows 7: Mem management, bad pool header, & other BSODs after 7 x64 install

Mem management BSOD, and programs are just crashing for no point. Kerbal Space program (game) and Minecraft (game) won't even start, they just throw error logs that point at random things. Firefox just crashed 10 times to be able to get to this page.... Is it possible that ALL of my sticks of ram are bad?! How is that possible? I'm still at a complete loss because of the randomness.. I wonder if I should just pick up some sticks of ram to try out and see if I have problems. What I really don't understand is why when I unplug everything, reseat the RAM, reboot... everything works fine. Second boot up it works mostly fine and then may throw an error. Third boot up.. nothing works lol..

Still haven't seen any responses regarding the disk checks. Have you run a disk check? What were the results? Do you have logs to upload for the checks?

Additionally, reading back through the logs, I noted that you had made some BIOS changes. Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.
  1. Power off the system.
  2. Remove all power supplies (ac adapter then battery for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and drain all components of power.
  4. Reconnect all power supplies (battery then ac adapter for laptop, ac adapter for desktop)
  5. Turn on the system and enter the BIOS (see your manual for the steps to enter the BIOS)
  6. Let the computer remain in the BIOS for 20 minutes.
  7. Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
  8. Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
  9. Repeat step 4.
  10. Replace the drive connection(s) and do steps 5-8 again.
  11. Repeat step 4.
  12. Start your computer normally and run Windows.

The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community

While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.

Check disk doesn't always show errors...
When a file does for whatever corrupt itself (which is usually on my HDD not my SSD? Which is odd..)
When it does corrupt a file then obviously it shows stuff.. otherwise I haven't gotten it to show that anything is wrong. It's been run a number of times, even before I joined this forum to figure out BSODs but I could never get check disk to actually SAY anything is wrong..

I'll run that cycle right now, thanks.

Stopped by microcenter after work today and picked up some faster Corsair Vengeance sticks (2 x 4GB) and... so far nothing is wrong.

Will update tomorrow if all is well or anything else comes up! But so far everything seems to be working great!

Glad you got it figured out. Sometimes Memtest doesn't catch the problem. Congratulations on having less headaches now.
