    Default BSOD Bad_Pool-Header

    Hey there, Ive done abit of searching but a few sites tell me to do diff things. Anyway, ( from about a week ago) my pc might freeze on startup (windows loading page), my pc might restart automatically and I also get the BSOD Bad_Pool_Header at least once a day, quite annoying.

    Specs:
    Pent 4 4CPU 3.40GHZ
    488 MB Ram
    Windows XP

    Any help would be great, appreciated, thanks.

    Nice to see you got it fixed. I was about to suggest a CHKDSK, but that was likely done in your updating

    Post back anytime if you need some help, I usually am not so slow to reply

    Thanks...problem...

    It was fine last night. Turned it on today, finished the updates, ignored to restart straight after they had finished to finish a college project. It suddenly restarted itself. Took a good 5minutes to get back on. The tower started up alright a few times, but nothing appeared on the monitor, no BSOD, no windows loading page or anything :S

    Thanks

    There are SEVERAL things that can cause this, BAD RAM, Corrupt or conflicting drivers, Corrupt Index, Faulty PCI Cards, Ect ..........and the list goes on.

    First thing I would do is Burn a Memtest86+ ISO and run memtest86+ to be SURE it is not your ram. Here is the latest Version 2.01 >>>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Try this related fix first after memtest in SAFE MODE >>>>

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;[LN];q314060
    1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
    2. Locate the UpperFilters value under the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    3. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
    4. Locate the LowerFilters value under the same key in the registry:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    5. On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click OK.
    6. Quit Registry Editor.NOTE: After you remove the Upperfilters value and the Lowerfilters value, if you notice lost functionality in a particular program, such as CD recording software, you may need to reinstall that software. If the problem recurs, consult with the software vendor for assistance.

    7. Restart your computer.
    Then if no luck, try disabling the Indexing service. To the indexing service from running, then click Start->Run type services.msc, and click OK. Find and Double click the Indexing Service and set the startup type to either manual, or disabled.

    You can also try a chkdks. To Do this properly, please open a run box (Windows Key + R) and in that type >>> CMD.

    Then in the command window type the following, yes there is spaces and it IS necessary so copy and paste if you can. IF not be sure you notice each space. >>>>
    Code:
    chkdsk /x /f /r
    Enter Yes to all it asks you and then reboot, Chkdsk will be run when you reboot.

    Also see this for other fixes >>>

    In the end, if you Ram tests out good, and none of the above works you may need to do a clean install. This is what I would suggest right off the bat, as it is best for your system and you.

    Ahh, see this is a week old thread, I had no clue what you was talking about.

    You still need help with this now or did you get it?

    No worries.

    Still won't let me delete them in safe mode or normal. Im guessing it's something to do with permissions but not messed around with anything yet...

    Just got the BSOD again but this time with:
    Irql_not_less_or_equal

    *sigh* lol

    Is this your system? If so, you can sign in as THE administrator (Not the same as A administrator) , that is why you are having issues likely.

    To sign in as THE ADMINISTRATOR you can do this >>>
    Right click on ''Computer -> Manage -> Local Users and Groups -> Users
    -> Rightclick Administrator -> Properties -> Uncheck ''Account is disabled''.

    Then reboot and login as the admin and try again, you may also have to try it in safe mode on either account

    Have you ram Memtest86+ on your ram? Bad Ram can often cause this as well >>>
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    Did you ever run the checkdisk command I put above? If not, do that first and see if it helps, then test your ram, then try this registry thing last as it may not even be the issue
