Windows 7: Blue screen of Death!


17 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7
 
 
Blue screen of Death!

I recently removed XP from my system, leaving Windows 7 Home Premium. I also followed advice here to move my Win 7 partition to the front of the disk. I don't know if that was relevant or not.
I removed XP Pro because whenever I booted into XP I lost all and any restore points in Win 7. The fix did not work on this system.
I am now getting random crashes BSOD where the message usually says 0x00000225, unable to find expected hardware (I think that is what it says). The screen disappears before I can read it fully. This morning, I got a different BSOD, I caught BAD_POOL_HEADER then it rebooted. I have had cx00000005 as well. I am unable to use F8 in order to turn off automatic reboot so that the BSOD stays on screen. It just tells me to select the option to turn it off and press enter, which doesn't change it.
I also noticed that I am still losing restore points. I had about 6 or 7 but after the crash this morning only the latest 2 are shown. I had 5.06GB set for points and only 1.05 GB was in use. Where have they gone? I have increased that to 10GB now.
The system can fail to boot up properly maybe 2 or 3 times a day and I have to go through the Repair option when it usually says it didn't find a fault. Sometimes, if I then tell it to boot normally, it will often boot up OK.
Currently, I am not happy with this behavior. Something is very wrong here!
Memory tests come up OK each time and a full disk test of C:\was run. When it rebooted it said the volume is clean. I think it did some repairs.

With regard to the advice to 'repair 7 three times to rewrite the boot file, is there a specific reason it needs to be done 3 times?

If I take an Acronis Image of my system as it is, then full format my C:\Win 7 then restore the image would that be worth doing? I think I did a quick format before I installed Win 7. It may be that the problem will just be restored with the image though
Sorry for the long post, but I did not expect all this hassle!.

Bertie Hi and welcome

The bad pool header is memory corruption but I could tell you alot more if I had the dmp file. Can you go into c:\windows\minidump , zip the dmp file (*dmp) and upload it to us so we can debug it. If it isnt in minidump you can search *.dmp

Let us know if you need any help with this

Hi Ken J

I had 3 minidump files, all today, but I tried to zip then using IZArc (first time I used it!) and I got errors and now all 3 minidumps have gone!
I need to get Winzip and try again when I get another crash!

I then tried WinRar but that failed as well after creating a folder. After each failure, the minidump disappears!

Hi, try winrar again but this time try not zipping it but making it a rar.
And be sure your administrator. Try to rar it up one by one.
If it doesn't work tell me and i go expert.

Thanks for the responses. I got my system working again some while ago now, although I don't remember how!
I will keep a note of your suggestions though as I still need to be able to post minidumps.
Thanks guys.

Let's test your RAM. Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Please enable driver verifier: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

Due to this and that now you are getting these issues... I can say with confidence this will b OS corruption.
Could be hardware, and it never hurts to run Hard Drive and Memory Diags, which I do recommend. But, with what you have done to the system,(these things do not always go well unfortunately) this is OS corruption.

If you take an image of a broken OS,, you have an image of a broken OS. Hope that clears that up.

Because it will need to repair one thing, then another, then another. Not always needed, but sometimes is.

Memory tests come up OK each time and a full disk test of C:\was run. When it rebooted it said the volume is clean. I think it did some repairs.
The memory tests should be run for several hours, not just one pass.

The Hard Drive Test you ran was probably CHKDSK which is fine, but it is not a Hard Drive Test.
You will need to find the manufacturer of your Hard Drive and run their tests on it to make sure the HDD is ok.

Please see this Link for more info on Hardware Testing.
