Windows 7: BSOD - Happens randomly. "Bad Pool Header", "DRIVER_VERIFIER"

02 Jun 2015   #11

Windows 7 ultimate x64


I went through the lengthy process of testing out all 3 sticks of RAM memory on all 4 of my slots on my motherboard. I didn't get a single error message this time. My oldest stick of RAM (that I thought might be the issue) I did 100+ passes on! The others I did a minimum of 10 passes on each slot. Not one error.

It's a bit odd since I did get some errors when I had all 3 of them plugged in (which I uploaded in a previous screenshot). So what should I do now? Thanks!

So you have different RAM sticks?

Use only matching RAM sticks came in a same KIT.

Ah okay. I have a 4GB stick and a pair of two matching 2GB sticks. I guess I will just suck it up and get a different kit and see how that goes. Thanks
