Windows 7: Frequent BSODs on Win 7 64 bit, 'bad pool header'

Hey Arc. After not having used my computer all week I've just started using it again this weekend and had another memory management BSOD.

I decided to run Memtest86 after reading around on these forums a bit and after half an hour and only 70% of the first pass it's found over 300,000 errors! So maybe I have some faulty RAM which is causing my problems.

You did it right.
Go for a replacement, but before that, test the memory modules at each slot.

Just tested the sticks of RAM on their own, one got errors straight away and one is fine after 4 passes of Memtest86. I don't have time to do more passes now but considering the other one was getting errors within 10 seconds I think that's okay for now.

I'm now running off just the stable 4GB stick, and I've taken the other one out. I activated driver verifier and tested things that were causing freezes before (USB bluetooth adapter, zoomable images in web browser) and neither caused a freeze.

Don't want to jinx it but it seems that faulty stick of RAM may have been causing my problems, so I will get it replaced! I will wait and see if I have any more BSODs as it's early days yet, and keep you updated.
