    BCP2: FFFFFA8003C5DAB0

    One error simply cited a Windows driver which too general to be of much help. The other cited pool corruption which tells us the driver pool is corrupted but nothing definitive was given as to the cause.

    One error is 0x00000019: BAD_POOL_HEADER
    A pool header issue is a problem with Windows memory allocation. Device driver issues are probably the most common, but this can have diverse causes including bad sectors or other disk write issues, and problems with some routers.

    The other error is 0xC0000221: STATUS_IMAGE_CHECKSUM_MISMATCH
    Indicates driver problems, system file problems, disk corruption problems (such as a damaged pagefile), or faulty memory hardware.

    In light of these errors I suggest you do the following diagnostics:

    1. Scan for infections.

    2. Do a harddrive diagnostics by utilizing the free utility from your HD manufacturer that you should be able to find on their website. Make sure you do both short and long tests.

    3, Run memtest on your RAM. This is free and quite safe. Do the following and don't short change any of the steps, i.e. the minimum # of Passes required.

    See the link below and follow the instructions. There is a newer version than what is listed but either one should work. If you need to see what the Memtest screen looks like go to reply #21. The third screen is the Memtest screen.

    Let it run for a LONG time. The rule is a minimum of 7 Passes; the more Passes after 7 so much the better. There are 8 individual tests per Pass. Many people will start this test before going to bed and check it the next day.

    If you have errors you have corrupted memory and it needs to be replaced.

    Also, with errors you need to run this test per stick of RAM. Take out one and run the test. Then take that one out and put the other in and run the test. If you start getting errors before 7 Passes you know that stick is corrupted and you don’t need to run the test any further on that stick.


    * Get back to us with the results.
