Bad Pool Caller BSoD, need help! RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I got a Bad_Pool_Caller blue screen a couple hours ago, and I'd really like to fix it as soon as possible.

    For background, this computer hasn't bluescreened in the year+ I've owned it, and I haven't added new software or hardware in a couple months, though I moved into my new home yesterday and my Wi-Fi comes through a NetGear, thought this might be relevant. 

    In any case I have the dump file, (I hope google drive is ok)

  • Hi @ Payton Tate

    To evaluate the BSOD please post logs for troubleshooting.

    Using administrative command prompt copy and paste this whole command.

    Make sure the default language is English so that the logs can be scanned and read.

    The command will automatically collect the computer files and place them on the desktop.

    Then use 7zip to organize the files and one drive or drop box to place share links into the thread for troubleshooting.

    This command will automatically collect these files:  msinfo32, mini dumps, drivers, hosts, install, uninstall, services, startup, event viewer files, etc.

    Open administrative command prompt and copy and paste the whole command:

    copy %SystemRoot%\minidump\*.dmp "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\"&dxdiag /t %Temp%\dxdiag.txt&copy %Temp%\dxdiag.txt "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\SFdebugFiles\"&type %SystemRoot%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts >> "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\hosts.txt"&systeminfo > "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\systeminfo.txt"&driverquery /v > "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\drivers.txt" &msinfo32 /nfo "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\msinfo32.nfo"&wevtutil qe System /f:text > "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\eventlog.txt"&reg export HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\uninstall.txt"&reg export "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components" "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\installed.txt"&net start > "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\services.txt"&REM wmic startup list full /format:htable >"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\startup.html"&wmic STARTUP GET Caption, Command, User >"%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\startup.txt"

    There are two files for you to find manually:

    a) C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP

    Use file explorer > this PC > local C: drive > right upper corner search enter the above to find results.

    b) dxdiag: 

    In the left lower corner search type:  dxdiag > When the DirectX Diagnostic Tool opens click on the next page button so that each tab is opened > click on save all information > save to desktop > post one drive or drop box share link into the thread
