Windows 7: Special_Pool_Detected_Memory_Corruption BSOD

21 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Special_Pool_Detected_Memory_Corruption BSOD


I received a PC from a company that builds them 2 days ago. The first time I ran the PC I received the "Windows previously failed to boot error would you like to run a error checker?" screen which was quite worrying for a newly built PC...

Anyway I played a few games on it all day and the PC played with a hitch, everything worked fine and no problems. Unfortunately today the PC has done nothing but BSOD almost every time I switch it on, even if I do manage to log on the PC BSODs fairly quickly. This leads me to believe this was possibly a program I may have installed since the PC ran fine the first day.

All errors point to "Memory Corruption", I did however run a DSKCHK and one error was fixed which was "Root cause found: System volume on disk is corrupt" but it didn't fix the BSOD which still happens every time I switch the PC on.

I ran driver verifier whilst these BSODs were happening but I'm fairly sure that the proper driver was never found even though it was running, this leads me to believe it's a Microsoft driver because I only have 4 drivers that aren't MS since the PC is new.

The specs of the PC are:

I7 920 Sandybridge
GTX 580
2x3gb XFX 1600 RAM
800gb HDD (I think the make is seagate?)
850w PSU

I know you will probably ask me to do a Memtest but this was 'supposedly' done by the company before they sent the PC out (they have to test that everything works fine before they send it...).

I will leave all the crash dumps here, I'm actually using my friends PC right now to post this, I was lucky to even get to the crash dump file on my other PC as it literally BSODs seconds within logging on.

Anyway I hope you guys can figure out the problem, thanks!

Edit: I do suspect my HDD is corrupt/dying to be the cause. The HDD is around 3/4 years old now and has 3 new installs of windows, I have files saved from each installation (windows000, windows001) which all contain the windows 32 files which could cause BSODs? It took over 2 hours to scan just my C drive because of all the items in it. Anyway it's just a hunch

I know you guys are very busy but I would like some help on this please, It's annoying to see new BSOD topics answered almost instantly whilst mine remains unanswered 17 hours later.

My thoughts are that any 2 day old computer should be under warranty.

It's under warranty yeah, it's just inconvenient to send it back for another 1/2 weeks when it could be a problem I can solve myself

Hey guys. One of my issues got fixed, but since then I have been getting this error message from my computer. Obviously, it is a memory issue, but I guess my question is whether it's the physical RAM or the memory on my video card. It seems like the error pops up when I exit sleep mode.
