I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, as my title suggests, I am getting lots of BSOD's and freezing, specifically, I've been getting Bad Pool Caller, Memory Management, Page Fault in Nonpaged area, reference by pointer, and system service exception just to name a few. These crashes and freezes happen at seemingly random times, and do not appear to be related to what I am doing, whether it be browsing the internet or gaming Here are the system specs, bought December 2010, it worked well for the first few months. Of course attracted below is the BSOD dump and system health report. Thanks for any help.

A:Many BSOD's, Bad Pool Caller, Memory Management, and freezing.

Many of these issues are being cause by your ati video card drivers and ati catalyst suite please update them from here:
AMD Graphics Drivers & Software make sure you put in all the right specs.
Also please run Memtest86 and test your ram following this tutorial:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
and last please check your disks by running chkdsk to check for any errors.

Hi there,

I'm not sure where to begin with my troubles so I'm going to list all of them in chronological order:

1. I've been having a few BSODs the past two weeks, starting with page_fault_in_nonpaged_area. I left it alone.
2. I had installed a game that didn't work (graphics card on a laptop isn't so great) so I uninstalled it and downloaded new drivers for my graphics card. Installed those.
3. Got a virus on facebook where a person's account was hacked and they posted a link to a video where there was a virus. I got rid of the virus with AVG and by deleting all temporary internet files, cookies, everything and even scanning my computer with both AdAware and AVG in Safe Mode. So I should be clear of the virus except now my firefox doesn't work. Whenever I type anything in and push enter, nothing happens. I can browse though. I'm not sure if it's related to the Firefox profile I'm using right now, which was infected when with the facebook virus.
4. Decided to use System Restore to see if it would cause everything to go back to normal and went back to prior to the installation of the game (and getting the virus).
5. I'm now faced with two BSODs: Bad Pool Caller and Memory Management. I get them whenever I'm watching video (not youtube) on supernovatube. Obviously it's not a peripheral problem because I don't have any hooked on (except for a USB mouse). I ran Memtest86 last night and things came back clean.

Hello,

I am facing random BSODs since few months. Now they have become more frequent. I tried to use driver Verifier but I couldn't boot after that. I have attached my dump files which i retrieved using SF tool. Please analyse it.
PS.: I think it is due to some issue with WiFi driver as it BSODs sometimes when I start WiFi or open utorrent. I tried refreshing PC and updating Drivers but it didn't help.

Any help would be appreciated.

Uninstall Connectify - the version that you are using (cnnctfy2.sys) may have known BSOD issues, it dates from 2011 (before Win8.1 was released) and it was blamed in the latest Driver Verifier enabled memory dump.

The previous memory dump has traces of Kaspersky all over it (but is not directly blamed). So, I looked at your 3rd party drivers and I also found traces of McAfee installed. Only use 1 antivirus and one firewall at a time. They can conflict with each other and cause problems (to include BSOD's).

I suggest uninstalling both Kaspersky and McAfee and seeing if that helps.
Use Windows Defender and the Windows Firewall while testing.
Once the testing is done, feel free to reinstall one (and only one) of the security protection products (Kaspersky or M that you were using. Make sure to get the latest, Win8.1 compatible version from the developer's website.

Hello
First of all sorry for my bad english, i'm all but a native speaker.
Ever since i bought my new mainboard, GPU, EAM and CPU some years ago i get a BSOD.
Never cared about it, so i can't say if it's always the same error. Nonetheless, i'm sure it's at least often the error mentioned in the threadtitle.
BSOD occurs while gaming or browsing with Firefox or using OpenOffice, ... well it can occur whatever i'm doing.
The issue survived several reinstalls of Win7 and once even occured shortly after first start of a freshly installed Win7.

After he's finished "dumping physical memory to disk" he attempts to restart but he hangs up during this restart, so i have to turn power off and on.
Thanks in advance

Remove AVG and use MSE for testing purpose.

Revo Uninstaller:

Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall stubborn software.

Download and install the software
Opt for Advance Mode while uninstalling which allows you to remove leftover registry.
Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems
Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other internet security software. Malwarebytes is a great combo to MSE. They are free and lightweight.

Also uninstall your existing Antivirus software before you install MSE.

Good and Free system security combination.



   Warning
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.


Please uninstall Daemon Tools. It uses a driver called sptd.sys which is known to cause BSODs in Windows 7.

So I've been having BSOD's frequently for the past few days and I've tried to do a little of my own investigating into the problem. My research led me to believe these were driver issues, particularly with my wifi (a wireless connection to router via Netgear WN111 adapter).

I uninstalled the device completely from my machine and cleaned out the registry files. I rebooted and reinstalled using updated drivers from the netgear site. The BSOD's still occured. The CD driver & software that the adapter came has worked perfectly well for years on Windows 7 and previously Vista. So I went back to those and still the problem continues.

I updated my creative soundblaster driver through the same methods, using unstall from device manager and then cleaning out remaining drivers using Driver Sweeper. I then installed the new drivers from the Creative website.

Same with my nVidia GEforce GTX 260 Card.

Still no cure.

So far the headers have included:

- netio.sys
- nwifi.sys
- bad_pool_caller
- IRQL_not_less_or_equal

I'm hoping one of you kind genius' would take some time to analyse my minidumps of today. I've uploaded two in one zip file.

Failing that, I'll obviously take it upon myself to try and diagnose them further, I'm just hoping someone here who is far more knowledgeable about dmp files can clear things up with a definitive direction of solution.

Thanks guys.

I built this computer six weeks ago and had no problems for a month! The first sign of problems came just before Christmas with random crashes and lock-ups!
It appeared to be a video card error and I pursued that avenue for a while, even sent the card back to the manufacturer (with there approval) for replacement. In the meantime, I bought another video card (so that I can SLI them when both get here) of the same manu. and model. I installed it, updated the drivers and all seemed well... For about 2 hrs! Then I got more crashes. I downloaded MEMTEST and found that one of my 512mb RAM cards was showing errors. I moved them to a different slot and tried again... No luck, so I removed one and the errors quit in Memtest. I thought I had the problem!
Yesterday, I got this new error (the one in the header), since this one is a new type of error that I have never seen on this system, I thought I would get some help!!
The system is:
AMD Athlon 64 3500+
Abit A8N-SLI mobo
1GB RAM (Currently using 512MB)
eVGA Nvidia 7800GT Video card
80GB SATA HDD
DVD/CD ROM combo

The error message is:
BAD_POOL_CALLER
Technical Info:
***STOP: 0x000000c2 (0x00000007, 0x00000cd4, 0x00000000, 0xfb913b78)

Any help would be appreciated, as I have reached my level of experience!!
I have attached the last four or five minidumps. Keep in mind that the earliest ones may have occurred prior to me removing the bad RAM!

Here is an MS article on the 0xc2 stop message, maybe that may lead you somewhere.

You dumps point to:

nv4_mini.sys "GetUlongFromAddress: unable to read from 80562970"
^^nvidia driver.

BugCheck 10, caused by cmudau.sys
^^looks like an audio driver

BugCheck 1000007F- cause by ntoskrnl.exe
^^ likely before ram

BugCheck 4E- probably caused by memory_corruption
^^obvious!

GetUlongFromAddress: unable to read from 80562970. caused by dxg.sys
^^not sure what dxg.sys is for
---------------------------

That may give you something to research. It would be good to get a few fresh dumps from AFTER taking ram out, just to be sure. I checked these in no particular order.

Hi,

I have been getting BSOD and occasional crash/restarts (with no BSOD) for at least a few months now. The exact cause of this is something I have no luck pinning down since very little on my computer has changed hardware wise and according to the device manager all my drivers are up to date :/

I have also noticed that my computer tends to quite sluggish when it reboots after such a crash has occurred. Since I am little clue how to read the minidump files, I have followed the forum instructions and uploaded a zip file with all the information gather by the SF tool contained within it.

windows has prompted me several times to do a memory check, which i have, but it says no memory problems found. i burned a disk to check the ram and let it run for about an hour and it found nothing wrong. i did a clean install of windows 7 and made sure my drivers were up to date. same problems happening. if there's any more information i can give just let me know. thanks

First post here, let me know if I need to include anything else, and thanks in advance

I have been getting memory management BSODs left and right, but I have seen a kernal security check failure and a bad pool header. This has been happening since before I upgraded from 7 to 8, so I'm guessing it's hardware? In Win7 I started getting BSODs, mainly while playing games (since that is what I use it for mostly). Chrome also crashed a lot. I figured I put something on there I shouldn't have, so I decided to wipe it and start fresh with a my student copy of Win8.

With a clean slate (SSD and HDD formatted), the problem was still there. However, in Win8 I could see that it was a memory management error. I looked it up and learned about checking my RAM, so I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic, which didn't find any error, and memtest, which crashed every time. Tested my RAM in another system and it passed. Long story short: after RMAs and sending parts in, I'm sitting with a new motherboard and cpu, and the problem is still there.

Components and what (if anything) I've done to test them:

Old CPU: AMD FX-8150
Current CPU: AMD FX-8350
(brand new) With the new cpu but old motherboard, memtest still crashed.

Old Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3
Current Motherboard: ASRock Fatali1ty 990FX Killer
(brand new) After swapping the motherboard, memtest now completes.

GPU: ASUS EAH6850 DC/2DIS/1GD5/V2 Radeon HD 6850
I don't know how to test this. I made sure the drivers were up to date.

This might be a stupid question to ask, but have you tested each stick separately for at least eight passes using Memtest86+?

I have been getting some BSOD's for the past month or so. These are the three errors that I have received ... Memory Management, PFN_List_Corrupt and Bad Pool Header.

To try and solve the problem I have so far swapped the hard drive and reinstalled the OS (Win7 64). I also ran Memtest 86 on my ram. It ran all night and didn't find anything but I am thinking that perhaps I should test it one chip at a time. I have 3 4GB sticks of Tri channel memory so that is why I am thinking maybe they should be tested individually.

It is possible it is a driver but I have a pretty vanilla set up so I am a bit lost. I really hope it isn't a motherboard at this point. I am pretty tech savvy but I am struggling so I came here to beg for your wisdom.

I attached the dump file as directed.
Thanks!

A:BSOD Memory Management, PFN_List_Corrupt and Bad Pool Header

Hi,

The bugchecks you're getting mostly refer to memory. So go ahead and test the sticks individually on different slots and let us know the results.

Good day all, I hope someone can help me with a consistent BSOD problem I've had today.

Every time my Steam client starts up and attempts to download its latest update, I get a BSOD with a Bad Pool Caller (one time out of about a dozen crashes it was Bad Pool Header instead). I have tried the Steam support, but their guides are focused on the program crashing, not the whole computer and I have had no luck fixing it there.

I downloaded DM Log Collector and attached my report, but I want to point out now that Windows has not produced dmp files for any of these crashes, even though the correct options are checked in the "Startup and Recovery" settings.

Thank you kindly for any help you can offer.

PS - I'm headed to bed, I'll be back tomorrow around 7am EDT.

I built a computer last week and everything seemed to be going fine until earlier this week, when I had a BSOD while surfing the internet and running [email protected] on my CPU and GPU.

I didn't think much of it until I got another BSOD the next day, maybe while playing DiRT 3. The first two BSOD's gave me the Memory Management error, so I downloaded Memtest86+ and ran 7 passes with no errors.

I then got another BSOD while trying to play the Kerbal Space Program Demo and running [email protected] on both the CPU and GPU. This gave me the "Bad Pool Header" error. I tried several things after this BSOD, including flashing the motherboard BIOS to a newer version and uninstalling and reinstalling my video card drivers. I also ran a GPU memory stress test and a 15 minute Furmark stress test on the GPU, thinking it might be my problem. No issues.

I booted up the computer today thinking that my problems might be solved, and left the computer running all day with [email protected] on full on the CPU and GPU. I started the KSP Demo again and got the Page Fault BSOD within about 30 seconds of opening the game.

I'm at a loss as to what to do next. Thanks for taking the time to read through my issues and a big thanks for any help you can give.

Hi waharvey.

Before doing anything else, uninstall AVG following http://www.avg.com/us-en/utilities. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one; as the installed antivirus is failing.

Let us know the results. Will decide about the further steps after seeing it.

Hi.

I recently have been having constant BSODs within the past month or so that at first seemed graphics related. I am not sure what the problem is but any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
MB: ASUS M4A79XTD EVO (AM3)
CPU: AMD Phenom II x4 965 Deneb @ 3.4 GHz
RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaw Series DDR3 1600 (4x2GB) **Originally 4GB See Below
VID: Sapphire RADEON HD 6850 1GB
HDD: 300 GB Hitachi SATA (Primary) / 1.5 TB WD Sata (Secondary)
PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower 700W PSU

Originally I had thought this to be a graphics card issue because I had a prior GeForce GTX 280 die on me. It was replaced by a GeForce GTX 460 Superclocked and I was still experiencing BSODs.

After that I ran Memtest to test my ram and it came back with no errors. I only ran the test for a few hours so I am wondering if I did not test thoroughly. I ended up purchasing another 4GB and just replacing the original RAM. The machine still continued to blue screen so I figured it wasn't a memory problem and installed the original 4GB of RAM.

I am still continuing to receive 0x1A (Memory Management) and Bad Pool Header errors. Any help that I could get would be greatly appreciated.

A:Recent BSOD errors (Memory Management/Bad Pool Header)

Typical Memtest86+ runs should be done with at least 7 consecutive passes.

Nothing here is conclusive so far. I recommend you start Driver Verifier to see if it's driver related.

So far my biggest suspicion is hardware. One of the crashes mentioned code corruption where one solitary bit was lost. Often memory failure is not the cause of solitary bit problems, but they still have the potential to do so, in which case you'll want to run Memtest more. Usually, however, this is caused by either a failing Motherboard, CPU or PSU, or one of the components are overheating.

You can check with overheating using HWInfo with Sensors only enabled. Log two 30 minute sessions: one for idle, and one for high load (gaming, benchmarks, etc.). Send to use for viewing.

Hello,

My laptop encountered a BSOD just now, with an error message BAD_POOL_CALLER. Doesn't know what it means, need help.

That time I was playing Left 4 Dead 2 with my friends through LAN, my friend (the game host) dc-ed for a while so it affects the three of us. But then he reconnects back so my other friends just reconnect into the game also. Not for my laptop though, my game is not responding and I cannot reconnect back into the game, it freezes. So I hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and I click the Sign out button. My laptop restarted and I log in back. After logging in and going to the desktop, my pc hangs and the BSOD occurs. It restarts again and back to normal. But what could have make that BSOD occurs in the first place?

What is the source of the windows disc that you are trying to install? Can you have am alternative DVD/ ISO? How old the motherboard and the BIOS version is?

Also, you may try to install Ubuntu, just to make it sure that it is not a hardware problem. Though usually a Bad Pool Caller is not a hardware issue, it is related with driver/ software.

Hi,

I recently ran Glary Utilities registry cleaner, but this did not solve the problem.

A:BSOD - Bad Pool Caller

I recently ran Glary Utilities registry cleanerNot a good idea...Registry cleaners/optimizers are not recommended for several reasons: Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries... Read more

A:BSoD - bad pool caller

Start backing up you files, clone the drive if possible, and check to see if your hard drive is under warranty.  If so, contact them for an RMA so you can replace the drive, because it is almost certainly going to fail very soon.
Edit: To clarify- BAD_POOL_CALLER means your computer is trying to protect itself from data loss, and given that you have all of those disk errors in the event viewer (from your screenshot), I'd say that's probably why.  It could also be a controller failure or just a bad SATA cable, too, but I'd still get a good backup and run diagnostics on the drive.

I've had my Windows 7 laptop for about 2 years, but it was second hand. The first thing I did with it was reformat it, and all the while it's had an annoying tendancy to suddenly BSOD with a BAD_POOL_CALLER error. It would do this seemingly randomly, though certain things are much more likely to trigger it - certain webpages (which change, confusingly), such as Facebook, Cracked, and some others. uTorrent almost always triggers it.

I've heard it was CPU drivers, networking drivers, and so on, but updating them never helped much. Can you guys offer any advice?

This is my first BOSD.I did a full system scan with Avast 6 free latest version,at 6pm left it running and went out came back at 9pm put monitor on and there it was BSOD saying
bad pool caller.
I noticed my pc tower was quite hot,so i restarted the pc and everything seems to be working fine,but i'm just worried it's gonna happen again.I'm a bit of a newbie.
My os is Windows7 32bit home premium premium/4gb ram/amd athlon 64fx-60 dual core/ati radeon hd 4600.
This is the minidump 144819

Hi,

I am at my wits end with this annoying computer problem I just cannot seem to fathom out. I'm an end-user with just above average knowledge, working on a HP xw6400 Workstation with 2GB RAM and running a GeForce 8800 GTX graphics card. I'm not sure what other information is required but let me know and I'll find it.

Essentially the system seems to randomly shut down after an undeterminable period of time and presents a BSOD with BAD_POOL_CALLER. The code is '0x000000c2 (0x00000040, 0x00000000, 0x80000000, 0x00000000)'

I have tried the following:

1) Remove all unnecessary peripherals - the system is now only powering 1 SATA drive, the motherboard, 1 PCI 16x graphics card (GeForce 8800GTX), 1 PS\2 keyboard, 1 USB mouse and a NIC (issue still occurring)

2) Run a Windows Memory Diagostic (no faults found)

3) Run a Registry fix (ashamedly found a lot of errors, which were fixed but the issue still occurs)

Is there any advice anyone can offer at all? It would be most appreciated. If any further system info is required I'll be more than happy to supply it.

Many thanks guys.

Hi,

My old hard disk previously was dead and I reinstalled Vista 32-bit in my old laptop, as well as other useful softwares for general use.

Lately, I am getting a lot of BSOD, shows Bad Pool Caller. I didn't get to see the rest of the details while the laptop restarted right after few seconds on BSOD. When I log in, it show a error message regarding Blue Screen. First of all, I copied the text out from the error window, saved in a notepad. Here's what it stated:

I didn't have these problems before my old hard disk died, and I replaced the new hard disk start by this month of April, and few days later I am seeing few times of BSOD.

I had a BSOD on windows 10 with the message: for more info look online for: BAD POOL CALLER
There was no value.
I have the impression the BSOD is caused by an original windows 7 desktop application (GNS3.exe) which hanged (not responding) when I loaded a project. I closed the application.
I've attached a crash dump file.
Can you say me what's the real cause of the crash?
