BSOD Playing World of Tanks "Bad Pool Header"

Q: BSOD Playing World of Tanks "Bad Pool Header"

Playing world of tanks I had a BSOD that said "Bad Pool Header" then of course a bunch of stuff that means nothing to me... I have downloaded the SF Diag tool and will attack the zip with my dumps/diag info here...

As a Side note... the BSOD does the memory dump then supposedly "restarts" the computer but mine just sits there on a black screen until I manually hold the power button down to turn it off then turn it back on....

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Code:
Usual causes: Device driver
avgidsshimx.sys seems to be a driver which is causing the crash, and linked to AVG, therefore I suggest uninstalling AVG with the offical installer (see link below)

Uninstall AVG:


Code:
Start Menu\Programs\AVG
Download tools and utilities | AVG UK
Uninstall Spybot - Search & Destroy:


Code:
Start Menu\Programs\Spybot - Search & Destroy
The later editions of AVG have been known to cause some stability issues with Windows 7, furthermore I would suggest uninstalling Spybot, as AVG and Spybot are both real-time protection programs and therefore are clashing with each other and producing crashes.

Microsoft Security Essentails has proven to much more stable and less problematic within Windows 7, than other AV suites available to use. Remember to update the security definitions for both MSE and Malwarebytes before scanning your system.

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Hi, I am having a problem with my newer computer, I just got this rig a few months ago and never had a problem until last Thursday. It Blue Screened on me while I was installing ARC GIS 10.1. From then on it randomly crashes. (I have previously installed ARC GIS 10 and never had a problem.)

I keep things updated (windows and drivers) and I do think windows forced through an update earlier that day. I un installed ARC GIS 10.1 and the windows update, didn't make any difference. I have also ran the Windows Mem test and Auslogic BoostSpeed/ Registry repair. I keep getting "Bad Pool Header" and "Page In Nonpage Area" and I can't seem to find something that triggers it. So far it hasn't crashed in Safe Mode without network access. I tried it once with access and it crashed. Currently have windows checking the drives for errors ( I have 4).

I think I attached the proper dump files. This is my work computer so this is kind of causing a big problem. Thanks in advanced for the help!!

Welcome aboard.

The crash dump you supplied, suggests the display driver failed there.

I started playing "World of Tanks" a few months ago and I'm hooked! It's just the right combination of simulation, RPG and FPS for me. No blood and gore, just fun! My son likes it, too, although the gameplay is slower than he's used to. I'm a beta tester for "World of Warplanes", but the controls are a little too difficult for me to master, not that I've mastered World of Tanks... I saw the trailer for "World of Warships" and I'm really looking forward to that one as I spent 9 years in the US Navy. Anyone else here play these games?

My neighbor got me started on World of Tanks a few months ago and I'm up to 1400 battles so far. It's very addicting and is just the right combination of FPS (no blood or gore), role playing and simulation. The game pace is perfect for me and I'm really enjoying it.

You don't have to have the latest hardware to run the game, but I thought the GTX-650 was fine until I got my new GTX-660 and the difference is simply amazing!

Hi everyone,

I recently have noticed more and more BSODs. I had this problem about 6 months ago and was able to track it down to drivers that came from Daemon tools. I cleared all that out and it fixed the issue. I don't think these new BSODs are related but they might be.

This seems to be happening randomly. It happens roughly every 2 weeks and early in the morning (1am, 6am, 9am, etc.) but not at a consistent time. As far as I can tell, I am not doing anything or leaving open any specific program that triggers this. There doesn't seem to be a consistent pattern.

I ran the DM Log Collector and uploaded the zip file here. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

My computer will repeatedly shut down to protect windows. I notified my IT department and they believe that I corrupted the hard drive, as I have local admin rights. they provided me with a loaner computer and loaded my backup system on to this laptop. Worked great for a week and then again started getting " bad pool header and new error "page fault in non paged area. They believe I again corrupted the hard drive.

Firstly, apologies if this is an issue that's been dealt with elsewhere (if so, I'd appreciate a pointer - I couldn't find anything dealing with this specific problem through a keyword search).

I'm running Windows XP Home with SP2 (which I installed some time ago, and didn't cause any problems that I noticed).

But recently, my computer turned itself off - and every time I turn it on, straight after startup I get a BSOD with the following details:

BAD_POOL_HEADER

STOP: 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0xFEC94518, 0xFEC94620, 0x0A210001)

The system seems to run fine in safe mode, but I haven't been able to use any debugging programs, etc, 'cause I didn't have them installed before the crash, and I can't figure out how I can do install them within safe mode, which is the only way the system will run.

The only thing I've changed on the system recently is that I installed an update of MSN Live Messenger - but I've disabled automatic startup which hasn't made any difference; and I haven't been able to reinstall it b/c, again, I can't/don't know how to install/uninstall programs in safe mode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have been getting these "Bad Pool Header" and "System Service Exception" BSODs for about a day now (the "Bad Pool Header" one tends to pop up more often then the other btw). I ran a registry cleaner which didn't work and ran memtest this morning and it showed that my memory was fine. The BSODs tend to occur more often when I am playing a game or running some program that uses a bit more memory but it also happens when I am just on the internet. On the other hand, last night I did nothing but surf YouTube for 3 hours and didn't get a BSOD at all. However, since then I haven't been able to do anything for more than 10 minutes (without being in safe mode) without it crashing, and this morning it completely froze until I turned it off. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit. It came preinstalled from the manufacturer and unfortunately I do not have the install disc. The entire laptop is less than 2 years old and there have been no major hardware changes and I have never reinstalled the OS.

Hello all,
One day about a week ago, my computer crashed when I was doing nothing abnormal. I believe my room mate had just played WOW or something. all of a sudden, the computer shuts down and crashes every time it starts up again when programs are loading. At first, every time i would try to start up, antivirus and other programs would be launching and then a BSOD complaining about "bad pool header" would come up and it would reset after a certain amount of time.

At this point, my first course of action was to disable startup programs because i was able to boot into safe mode. So i used MSCONFIG and edited the start up files down to pretty much nothing, and it would still crash when i started into windows normally, even though safe mode worked.

Then my room mate went into safemode a litte later when i was away and downloaded an anti virus that apparently found a single virus in the system (even though i have been running nod32 for a very long time...) and also ran registry mechanic and repaired everything that it showed. This did not help, the same thing happened upon start up, even with everything disabled in the startup sequence.

After that, i decided to do a repair installation of XP and that worked fine, but after i started to start up normally from there, the same BSOD came up but it occurred earlier in the start up process... during the welcome screen loading. Windows still loads, but once the blue welcome screen comes up, it goes BSOD on me. However, ... Read more

So far I have had a total of 5 BSODs since I formatted. I was getting them before too, just to clarify. The BCCodes are 0x00000001, 0x0000007f, 0x000000fc, 0x00000001 and 0x00000050. They were caused by two things, ntoskrnl.exe and nvlddmkm.sys. I have only gotten them when World of Tanks is open, I don't have to be playing it, as long as it is open the game either crashes randomly or I get blue screen'd. I have changed Nvidia drivers about 5 times now, ranging from brand new ones to ones from the beginning of the year. I have reset BIOS to default settings which was something suggested, that did nothing. I have also cleaned my computer which also didn't help. There may have been a few other things I tried that I cannot remember.

Hello, mirei.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums !

I did small review of your MiniDump files and problem is making your NVidia Graphic Card driver.

There is a lot of new versions which can fix that BSOD problem.

What you can do :
1. Update your currently Graphic Card drivers.
2. Check your game compatibility with your Graphic Card compatibility.

I will start with only this.
Try this and If you have problem again, we will do some tests.

Trinty.

Hi everyone

I upgraded my video card last year before Christmas with a GeForce GTX 650, in february i also changed my old hdd and added a 1TB WD Blue.

Problems started like two weeks before Easter in which i received BSOD's almost every day and i didn't knew what was the problem. On 2nd day of Easter my old 500 watt Raidmax PSU "died" while i was playing World of Warcraft, so then i thought the PSU was the problem that made BSOD's appear because it was like 4 years old and the new video card was in need of more power. This month on 4th of july i bought a Corsair CX 600 watt PSU, the computer worked normally until two days ago on 29th, in the morning i pushed the power button but only the fans and the power led were on, nothing on monitor, after on/off the pc a few times and on/off the PSU once it finally started. Today same scenario with power up, then i decied to play some World of Tanks, after first fight...like 5-10mins of playing i got BSOD and restard, tryed again and same think happened, also the computer blocked i think twice and i had to reset it and once i saw in bios at cpu temperature all kind of strange numbers.

A:BSOD When Playing Game (World Of Tanks)

You are running an ASUS Product ID (PID) on a MSI board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

At least one BSOD has had some sort of hangup with your graphics driver. You have the latest driver so lets try to uninstall it and reinstall just to see if that helps.

Also, check with Razer Synapse, it was the process running when the BSOD occurred.

Is there any particular reason for using windows xp?

The dump relates to your graphics card and its drivers. The issue of turning off and wont turn back on again is a hardware issue, probably a overheated/dying graphic card.

Does your motherboard have a onboard VGA slot? Connect there and see if this issue persists. What's the age of all the hardware?

Hey guys, I've recently been encountering BSOD while playing graphically intensive games such as World of Tanks in 4k resolution.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine. If you have uploaded DMPs before please only the new ones.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

PS: When I play Aion, and the PC restarts (caused by BSOD) most of the time the minidump isn't created and sometimes it doesn't go into the BSOD it just restarts, but i know the problem is the BSOD.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x86(32bit)
It's the original installed OS on my system (OEM)
I've had this computer for ~4years, drivers always up to date and i reisntalled my Windows yesterday.
Attaching the Zip file with the information required which was on BSOD posting instructions post.

A:BSOD playing Aion, "REFERENCE BY POINTER" and "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL"

No DMPS included in upload try this method.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Sma... Read more

Hey
So I just played world of tanks.
I load in and the game starts, i move around for about for a minute as usual, suddenly sound to my USB Headphones is cut and my monitor says "No connection found, entering sleep mode". THen i tought what the hell and restarted my monitor (didn't notice the absense of sound yet) Still the same. I waited for a little bit, then looked at the lights on my PC, none of them were showing a sign of life. (Power & HDD Activity lights) altrought my fans were still spinning. Then I restarted my PC by holding the power button down and booted into windows right away, no error logs or anything that i can see. No BSOD. Just like a death.
I suspect motherboard/PSU error, what do you think?

Yeah, that sounds like PSU failing... I would swap in a better quality PSU, ASAP.
I guess I'd a little bit higher on the watts too, 550/600w one.

Visit jonnyguru.com for some good info and reviews of PSUs so you have a reasonable idea what to buy.

If it was motherboard it wouldn't have rebooted .

My last major failure: My last motherboard broke in the middle of playing a stressful MMO, on release day of Rift, and I was playing a different MMO during Rift update, LOL! [my bad luck]

Initially thought it was PSU, but it was the motherboard, was 7 hrs later when I was finally back up running, I had bought all the parts at a local Fry's, but was 2 round trips to get the right diagnosis/parts complete.
Fond memories...

I am working on a laptop for a friend and receive the "Bad_POOL_Header" BSOD about 15 seconds after Windows loads. I do not receive the error in safe mode. I have attached the dump files but cannot run the System Health Report as this service will not run in Safe Mode. Can someone point me in the direction of what driver and/or software is causing the BSOD?

System Specs:
Asus TravelMate 5542-3590
Windows 7 32-bit OEM
AMD Athlon II P340 Dual-Core
2.00 GB RAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250

Thanks in advance

A:BSOD, "Bad_POOL_ Header" , Almost Immediately After Windows Loads

There's only two minidumps present, one dated from Oct 2011, and the other is from today. What doesn't make sense is that the syslog said that it saved the crashdumps for previous crashes yet I don't see their minidumps here. Are these the only dump files present in C:\Windows\Minidump directory? It does appear like there's an issue with a disk driver or a filter driver that filters disk I/O, which may explain why memory dumps aren't being generated (if they aren't).

Anyways, this does indeed look like a driver issue, but the minidump itself offers no valuable data aside from it being disk-related, and minidumps are used to find patterns in crashes so one minidump isn't enough here.

Therefore, I recommend turning on Driver Verifier. Do not select the following checks: Force Pending I/O Requests, IRP Logging, and Low Resource Sim. Select all other checks. Make sure to restart system after you finish setup. If you experience a boot loop afterwards, go into Safe Mode by pressing F8 prior to Windows logo and disable DV there. Provide us any new crashdumps that may be generated from this.

Btw, as a hint, the process that was running during this particular crash I'm seeing was SetAPM.exe, an Acer bloatware application that's designed to "improve" power management functionality. I recommend you uninstall it. Perhaps that's the bugger that's causing all this.

So I'm not very experienced with computers, so my friend told me to post to this forum for help. I get consistent BSOD's when using the internet. I notice it more when I'm on youtube, but it's not limited to that. I've googled "Bad Pool Caller" like the error told me to but found no solutions.

Please look for updates for drivers highlighted in red and remove Avast as it's one of the causes of your BSOD.

I have been searching online for a solution to this Bad Pool Caller" messaged. I get the BSOD on startup and can't get to anything else except setup mode, where everything looks OK, and safe mode, which goes back to BSOD before I can do anything.

UPDATE: I tried to use registry repair, thinking the CD might start by itself, but all it did was change the blue screen message, which now says: page fault in non aged area. It advises me to use safe mode, which, as I said, doesn't work.
The technical info is
***STOP: 0X00000050 (OXDFFB7080, 0X00000001, 0X806576CC, OX00000000)
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

It is very important that I save the docs and pics on the computer. When I took a PC to a computer shop they wiped it clean, and I want to be sure any instructions to fix the blue screen on this PC don't do the same thing.

Most recently, I had several different techies from Make it Work try to install a wireless router with little success. My 17yo eventually did it, but he is stumped by this BSOD.

I would (please!) very much appreciate suggestions that a computer idiot would understand-- can you help? Please?

Hi all,

I have a long history of BSOD's with this computer during startup but I eventually discovered (also with the help of this forum) that they were caused by my DeathAdder mouse. BSOD's during startup have vanished.

Instead, they have been replaced with BSOD's during the use of Skype, Microsoft Word, LOTRO or anything else I might have running. There's no pattern that I can discern except the BSOD's originate under the Special Pool flag. I have previously turned on Driver Verifier to help get some additional detail in my dump files.

At this point, the best I can tell the BSODs point to my Webcam and NVIDIA drivers both of which are absolutely current and have been so for some time. I've reached the point where I need some assistance from someone with a lot more expertise in parsing out system info.

Thanks in advance for the help!

A:Random "Special Pool" BSOD's During General Use

Welcome
Your reports seem to point to your webcam. Go to the corporate website and update the driver

If the drivers are current as you say, try to roll them back.

After an update I'm unable to access the above mentioned games.  They load without problems and then the window minimizes.  When you put the pointer above the taskbar pin it shows the window but when you move off to get to the full window it
disappears.  What do I need to do to get these games back and running correctly?<style></style>
