BSOD 0x8E & 0x19 errors

  1. I have been having random BSOS with errors mentioning Bad_Pool_Header and Memory_Management. I have done a dskchk, reseated the RAM tried to review the Event Viewer, but can't seem to get anywhere.

    I am no expert at the innards of the OS and hardware, but have tried to work through the logical problem areas. I can't put my finger on any particularly event which started the problems - they have just gradually built in frequency.

    I enclose a ZIP of the last 5 minidumps as it would completely make my day if anyone is able to positively point me towards a solution.

    Many thanks,

    Thanks for your help. As I am using Vista I tried the built in Memory Diagnostic Tools which showed up that some of my RAM was bad. It was one of the original 1GB sticks so I am down to 2GB but happy to be slow and stable for the moment!

    Good to hear you found the problem, if you take out your bad ram, and you want to replace it, make sure it has the same specs. (same brand is even better). ;)
