    Hello,

    I am having troubles with my first build. The computer works enough to start up and use some basic software, but it eventually crashes, particularly when playing WoW. Sometimes I get the BSoD with one of the two following errors: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT or BAD_POOL_HDR (something like that). I found another post saying to run Microsoft's memory diagnostic tool. When I ran the bootable CD, it got through the first test ok, then had Failures on the INVC test and LRAND test before freezing during the STRIDE 6 test.

    A little extra (possibly useless) history. The computer seemed to be doing ok before I installed a Graphics card. I am not entirely sure that is when the problems started, but I have since removed the card and uninstalled the drivers.

    Thanks!

    System info:
    Motherboard: ASUS M4A78T-E
    Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 BE
    Hard Drive: Hitachi Deskstar 1 TB SATA
    RAM: 6 GB OCW DDR2 RAM (this is the best I can recall off the top of my head)
    OS: Windows 7 x64
    Graphics Card: VisionTek ATI Radeon 4570 (removed this. also has no support for Win7)

    Hi Jules
    It looks a lot like memory problems

    First the simple things: remove your memory sticks and reseat them, carefully. Are you sure they are DDR2? Your board takes DDR3. Are you overclocking?

    Then you might try Memtest86 to run a memory test: http://www.memtest86.com/

    Finally, it is strange that you say a ATI Radean 4570 doesn't have support for windows 7, have you checked ATI's site: http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=win7/windows-7-64bit ?
    If you prefer not to re-install the card, run the Windows cleanup installer utility to make sure all the drivers are completely removed: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;290301

    Good luck and let us know

    Thanks for the replies! I'll start the Memory reseats/tests after I post this.

    I wanted to post a little more info and corrections.

    The memory is OCZ 6GB DDR3 (sorry, I assembled this a while ago and forgot the RAM info). I am not currently overclocking

    As for the graphics card, I should have said VisionTek doesn't seem to support Win7 (at least I couldn't find anything on their website for it). I did update to the drivers posted on the ATI/AMD website. I do plan to reinstall it once I get the system running better.

    Minidumps from my last 20 crashes attached.

    Looks like Norton is causing the issue. Please uninstall it completely, then run this removal tool: ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe

    Then download and install Microsoft Security Essentials.

    I tried to remove Norton and ran the removal tool. Then I installed the Microsoft Security and ran some scans and left the computer alone. A while later it had apparently recovered from a crash.

    I reseated the RAM, and started up the computer. It got stuck trying to load the ASUS OS. After shutting it down, I have since lost post. I will have to post another update here once I reestablish that (hopefully tomorrow).

    Thanks for the ideas.

    All right, thanks for the update. Remember to upload any new dmps.

    In the meantime, you might want to try a memory test. Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.
