I'll make this short and to the point, I've been having this problem recently were windows would suddenly crash and give me a BSOD when I wake it from sleepmode. Can anyone help me? I have the minidump files that are logged when this occurs. I just need to know what is causing this to happen. Help would be greatly appreciated.

ntoskrnl.exe ntoskrnl.exe+7efc0 DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL

The kernel attempted to access pageable memory (or perhaps completely invalid memory) when the IRQL was too high. The ultimate cause of this problem is almost certainly a driver that has corrupted the system pool.

These actions might prevent an error like this from happening again:
Download and install updates and device drivers for your computer from Windows Update.
Scan your computer for computer viruses.
Check your hard disk for errors.
run memtest to check ram

I actually had no idea how to fix it, I tried everything. Changed the ram around, did lots of memory and diagnostic tests , even replaced the ntoskrnl.exe file, still got crashes. Then I decided to just do a clean install of windows, which let me narrow down the possibilities through the drivers. I installed all my updates one by one, driver by driver, and long behold a BSOD! Turns out it was my Theron Mouse drivers causing it all a long. I did number of tests with it installed and without it installed and I got no BSOD when it is uninstalled, so it is the culprit from what I see. Thank you for the help, you're a life saver.
