BSOD Bad Pool Header (Driver at fault- audiodg.exe)

Hello everybody, while I was playing music on my computer I had a BSOD. This BSOD(Bad Pool Header)has affected me when gaming too.

I do not know what to do I really would appreciate all the help I could get.

Here you will find my dmp file uploaded to my skydrive.

There aren't any .dmp file in your attachment. These are required to analyse the BSOD.

Follow these steps:

1. Configure Windows to create minidumps:
Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

2. Set the paging file on C: to be the same size as the physically installed RAM:
Virtual Memory Paging File - Change

3. Set the Windows Error Reporting service to MANUAL:
Services - Start or Disable



Now follow this:

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode

Hold on, I cut my dmp. files out of my minidump folder to upload them easier and that may the reason why no files have turned out in the attachment. I will just restore them to the folder and re-upload the attachment.


Here done. Checked and there is the most recent dmp file popping up.

Okay, the installation for the new audio drivers appears to be a success. The new drivers are a couple months ahead of the old drivers. Hopefully this is the last of this type of BSOD I will see.
