Frequent BSOD. First Bad Pool Header and now IRQL Not less or Equal

When using verifier I kept getting the BSOD at the start stating that my drivers were messed up. However without verifier I can usually boot but I get a frequent BSOD. The most recent one stated IRQL Not Less or Equal. If anyone can point out which driver might be the one causing this it would be appreciated.

While waiting, would you please fill out your system specs using this as a guideline.
Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

In the System Manufacturer Block, enter:
Manufacturer and Model and
ADD the word laptop, desktop, netbook or tablet.
For example:
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

You will find that in Speccy, you can select info from the display
using your mouse/touchpad and then paste that info into your specs.

SIW is a marvelous program, but the free version does not offer
this capability.

The cause is gdrv.sys which seems to be part of some of the software bundled with you motherboard, probably Easysaver or Autogreen, uninstall them and see if the problem disappears.

Probably caused by : gdrv.sys ( gdrv+1809 )

Okay I have updated my system specs and I uninstalled the programs bundled with my motherboard. Was there anything else that could have possibly caused a problem?

Good start on the specs.

Now: the manufacturer and model of your desktop computer is ?
Have you installed SP1?

I'll await those answers / updates before continuing.

Oh it is built. I built it probably a month ago and so far I have had about 5 blue screens. (minus the verifier BSODs) Also SP1 is installed.
The gdrv.sys and the program that came with my motherboard's company have been uninstalled. Can't say if it worked yet though.

I do not know the specific difference, but your processor is not on the list CPU Support list for your motherboard.
Your processor is: Phenom II X4 965 BE according to your specs.

This processor: Phenom II X4 965 is on the list.
