    well, I own a asus a8j laptop with a windows xp service pack 3 os...... recently, my laptop has been working properly until a while ago, a bluescreen stating "BAD_POOL_HEADER_BIOS" popped out then the whole system suddenly restarted. i tried to reboot it and the process just repeats itself. I tried to do what the other sites told me : to boot into safe mode, and remove some registries. but nothing helped. I also tried to do a system restore but it did not help either....right now, i am using my other laptop....i still have important files in the broken laptop and i need those asap......could you please help me? thanks in advance!!!!!

    Hi and welcome.
    Removing files from the registry is not a good idea.
    Run a hard drive test.

    Run a Mem Test.

    Download the ISO file from one of the links above to your desktop.
    Then burn the ISO to a Cd.
    Start the Pc using the Cd and run the memory test overnight or for at least 8 passes.

    It is best to run a full scan on individual Ram sticks if you can.
    Or run the test but if any errors are shown - then remove all sticks of Ram and test each Ram stick one at a time.
