BSOD bad_pool_header

Hi,
I am having a problem with a Dell Vostro 1510 laptop. It is crashing with the bad_pool_header BSOD.

error codes:
x(however many zero's)19
x(however many zero's)20
x87F75380
x87F75430
x1AV60013

I already ran memtestx86 for a few passes and didn't find any errors..

Any ideas?

Thanks

  1. it seems that I can trigger the BSOD when ever I initialize Speedfan as well
  2. It's either memory or a driver.
  3. Ok, well then I'm guessing that it must be a driver, seeing that the memory should be fine. I've put the files in a zip folder in dropbox and added the link below in case anybody wants to take a gander at them

  4. Did you test memory one stick at a time for at least 3 complete cycles? Then repeat with all sticks installed? If not then you didn't really test it.

    Sorry for the delay...its definitely not the memory....there are two RAM cards...I've tested each one individually for a minimum of at 10 passes, as well as 10 passes with both cards at the same time...no errors whatsoever.

    OK, it's not memory. Has to be a driver.

    Start here ^

    Remove Speedfan and any other superfluous drivers.
