    Bug check description: This indicates that a pool header is corrupt.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem. This might be a case of memory corruption. More often memory corruption happens because of software errors in buggy drivers, not because of faulty RAM modules.
    The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system which cannot be identified at this time.
  4. When i try to install it the update says "The update is not applicable for your computer" and i have to turn it down, i searched through my installed updates but cant find it there
  5. I will try to push my computer, thats when it usually gets the BSOD, when im streaming and playing it usually crashes with BSOD. Ill come back with the answer later on!
  6. try running memtest on the ram to rule it out.
  7. I've done one of those hard drive check, went fine, havent done a memtest though, ill try it later today! ill come back with results! thank you for advice smorizio

  9. I just ran Memtest86, wasent any problem with that, done windows memory diagonstic also, no problem
  10. Also done Error checking on my C-disk and turned out without any problem aswell, i've stopped using USB 3.0 since they seemed to make me BSOD, still havent tested any hard cpu usage yet, ill come back if i still get BSOD's.

    Got all drivers at latest updates aswell.
  11. the asmedia is the one in case seen on asus forum that there is a firware out in 2011 check with your board model if you could find that update on the maker or they maybe have a bios update for this
  12. sorry for bumping and old thread..saw some new info..check the sata ports your using from the crash dump files it looks like you have your drive plugged into the acmedia sata ports.
