  1. Hey guys,

    I've been having some PC issues that have just been snow balling and I can't figure any of it out. It started with random restarts that were getting more and more frequent, and now I can't even logon without getting BSOD.

    The error message reads "Bad_Pool_Header" Also here are the number (not sure which part dictates what the issue is so I'll put in the whole code that I wrote down.

    "0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0x8957C8E8, 0x8957c918, 0x0A060006)

    I would post my dxdiag here, however there seems to be a problem saving it. When I open it the little blue bar in the bottom left hand corner goes almost to the end but won't finish, I try saving the info and it gets stuck on "Direct Show Information"


    Ok well I had to skip Direct Music and Direct show, it encountered errors with those two, however I was able to save it after I waited a while. Here is the file.

    Attach some minidumps from c:\windows\minidump. You can attach 5 as they are or zip up half a dozen.
