First of all thank you again for the great help I got on this forum around a year ago when my BSOD got solved here.
Unfortunately I've recently gotten another BSOD issue.
A week ago, my PC wouldn't boot. I opened the case and it was clogged up with dust. I cleared the dust, and closed it. PC booted fine again and no apparent problems. Since then however, Every couple of hours my PC is turned on for, I get a BSOD. I have tried updating my Graphic Card drivers and CPU, but that did not help. I've also done virus and malware scans, but that did not help either.
I did install a new direct x driver (PhysX) shortly before I got these BAD_POOL_HEADER errors though, which I needed for a game called Antichamber.
Today, just while trying to create this help thread, I've had 4 or 5 BSOD's. They have definitely gotten a lot worse as of today.
the BSOD message is "BAD_POOL_HEADER", followed by STOP: 0x00000019 (0x0000000020, and then some more...).
My specs are:
· windows 7, service pack 1, 64 bit (I checked in system - folder does say x86 though? C:\program files (x86)
· What was original installed OS on system? the same windows 7 I got on it now. I had to reinstall it after I updated my bios and I couldnt boot anymore.
· Age of system (hardware) around 1.5 years old
· Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? about 1 week less than hardware age, I had to reinstall over the previous try already after 3 days or so.
· CPU intel i5 2500 (OCed using intel autotune program - this has been like that for a long time and has never given problems)
· Video Card 6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC
· MotherBoard gigabyte techonlogies z68 ap-d3
· Power Supply - brand & wattage- ModXStream Pro 700W
Would appreciate any help I can get! :)
ps It seems my old jcgriff folder was overwritten by the new check.. shouldnt give problems though right?
And I couldnt do a regular health check, it got error I tried to look up and fix but didnt work. Used a workaround that has hopefully produced a usable html file
