Still corrupt.. navigate to c:/windows/minidump and delete everything... then enable driver verifier to generate a new one..

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

Im going to call in the real experts for this one... 2 .dmp files are blaming Pool Corruption, and 2 are blaming acedrv11.sys as the reason for the crash... I wasn't able to find any usefull information on acedrv11.sys ... It may take a bit for an answer, but hang in there!

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.

It has something to do with copy protection. I guess it installed with some copy protected program.

Welcome to Protect Software

But the thing which eludes me is how come this influance on my GPU. With old GPU all was fine no bsods etc...In either case I will deinstall this. I also saw new NVidia drivers 260.89 tough my old beta drivers bear the same mark...I will notify you how it goes.

Also what about that Pool_Corruption thing what can I do to solve that problem?

Thank you,

Niki, pool corruption can be caused by bad drivers, software conflicts, hardware conflicts, etc. I find a very outdated driver on your system. Generally speaking, Win 7 does not like older drivers. They can and do cause conflicts, memory corruption and crashes. Both of the pool corruption dumps indicate memory corruption.
PxHlpa64.sys Mon Dec 10 18:49:01 2007 - Sonic CD/DVD driver (used by many different CD/DVD programs) pxHelp20.sys programs
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers and rename PxHlpa64.sys to PxHlpa64.BAK
This will break your CD/DVD program, but can easily be renamed after we've finished.
I cannot determine the date of acedrv11.sys. If you would, please follow the instructions in this tutorial and upload the files. This will give us a peak into your system and will help us help you.

Tews is spot on in his assessment of
acedrv11.sys. I suggest that you uninstall this software. Also rename the driver above. Reboot and let's see how your system does. These two actions may solve your problem. Please let us know.
