Weird BSOD with changing messages

Hello All,

I've been using my PC for 4 years and with Windows 7 for almost more than an year now. Recently....a month ago, I started getting random BSOD's, the problem intensified and I even got long repeating beeps while starting the PC...i figured out it was a RAM problem...so just to be on the safe side, I changed my RAM and Motherboard as well. I even formatted the whole HDD completely, made new partitions and then with new OS I am still getting BSOD's. Sometimes with the IRQL exception message and sometimes with the BAD HEADER POOL message. I'm not sure what the problem is and any help will be most appreciated. I am attaching 3 dump files considering the different messages on the BSOD screens.

My PC config is as follows:

Mobo: Asrock G41 VS 3
Proccy: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3 Ghz
GPU: Palit Nvidia 9600 GT 512 MB
RAM: Kingston 4 GIG DDR 3 1333MHZ (2 X 2 GB)
PSU: Corsair VX 450

I am quite new here, totally new infact, so if there is any more information I need to provide, please let me know.

These are easy. Your video driver


When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Hmm...Thanks a tonne...

It could have started when I tried updating the old nvidia driver. Yeah I do remember clearly, I have not uninstalled the driver.

I'll follow the steps you've given as soon as I get home and see what happens.

Once again, thanks a tonne . Hopefully it works out allright...was becoming quite a pain.

Looks like the PC is working fine now. I ran it all evening yesterday, almost more than 5-6 hours. Played a bit of UT2k4, watched some videos, did a bit of work in Unity. All good....lets hope it stays that way. Thanks a tonne zigzag, you saved my neck.

Got a completely new BSOD today with the message PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA.
It happened when I was trying to install COD Black Ops from the Disc through Steam.

Edit: Updated with attached Minidump.rar file. Now downloading Black Ops files through Steam as every time I try to install through disc, the system BSOD's.

To start off with, I'm really sorry about the repeated posts. Have to get to work so thought I'd post all the problems with minidumps before I leave.

Allright, I installed Call of Duty through Steam and the game installed fine and even opened up fine. Tried the multiplayer and it BSOD'ed couple of times. I uninstalled Nvidia drivers, used driver sweeper in safe mode and then installed new Nvidia drivers. Then tried Single Player Call of Duty...this time the game played a bit and then just froze with some graphical glitch on screen before BSOD'ing with the message 'System Service Exception'.

I have attached the minidump with the post. I would really really be grateful if anyone can help me solve this problem. Once again sorry about the multiple posts. If there is any other information needed please let me know.
