Windows 7: Bad pool header BSOD

09 Feb 2012   #31

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

I'll test the system in its current state for like 2 days, if it works i'll plug in the rest of the devices.
Hopefully it works after installing all drivers, if it doesn't, i'll ask for the advice on this forum.
And i will help others with what i've learned.
Thanks to all the help of this forum, i've found many possible solutions and causes of my previous problems.
So i personally thank you all, never could have done it without you guys.

Windows 7 Ultimate x86

Well after a day it started freezing and giving me bsod's again
So i replaced the memory, didn't work, reseated memory to other ports, didn't work.
I am looking at my cpu right now, i think that might be the problem, if it's not, then it must be the motherboard.
It is frightening because right when i think i solved it, it suprises me yet again
Well i hope i still have warranty on my cpu.
Can the overclocking in the past have caused this ?
If it has broken my cpu, windows shouldn't even start right ?
The bios shouldn't even start.
Well i am hoping it is my cpu, i don't have the money to buy a motherboard or cpu.
Another theory is, recently i've replugged another dvd drive and replaced the asus cd cable, now it seems to be working when i unplug my molex cable.
Could a molex cable cause a bsod with the description, MEMORY_MANAGEMENT ?
Thanks in advance

Is it also possible my hard drive is causing these memory management errors ?
After the virus, i've got nothing but trouble, can a virus cause damage to hardware ?
I know it can cause damage to my bios, but i've never seen any damage to the hardware caused by a virus.

Did it cause any damage to your BIOS?

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT is usually caused by drivers or bad memory modules. I do not think you would see that particular crash due to a hardware issue other than memory or possibly the cpu/motherboard, but stranger things have happened.

If your CPU had issues, Windows would still be able to start, but you would see problems when running prime95 tests. Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95

Are you able to upload the new crash reports?

I was trying to upload the files, but for some reason it won't upload, anyways i think i have tracked down the problem this time, i cleared my cmos battery after having problems with the bios when i unplugged my hard drive.
Then i ran burn in test on hiren's mini windows xp WITHOUT any hard drive in my pc.
It didn't crash or freeze one time after running several tests on burn in.
I let it run for several hours and i think this might've happened :
In earlier posts, it was about a virus that could seriously damage my system, after reformatting and removing partition c:, the problem continued.
I think it might have damaged my primary hard drive and i need to do a full format on that hard drive in order to make the problem go fully away.
It is strange because bsod's like memory management or page file faults let you think of drivers and most probably the memory.
But if i had memory or cpu problems, my system would freeze even on hiren's mini xp, it didn't.
I did came to the conclusion earlier that it must be a motherboard or cpu problem, but when i run prime95 under windows 7, it immediatelly crashed.
And now i removed my primary hard drive it doesn't freeze or bsod anymore.
It is a relatively new hard drive, 1 month used so i think it must have been the virus that damaged my hard drive.
Well, i am gonna run prime95 tomorrow on hiren's mini xp and see how that works out.
How long should i let prime95 run ?

Run each test in prime95 for a few hours.

As to your hard drive, did you run a clean all through Diskpart before re-installing Windows? Rootkit viruses can remain if you did not. See Command Prompt at Startup for how to start a command prompt using your installation DVD so you may run Diskpart from the command prompt. Then follow the steps for clean all using the Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command tutorial.
