Hello all!

I have a thorny issue that I can't point a finger at!

Desktop randomly crashes. Especially when running Firefox or IE8?

I have attached the following BSOD.txt file logs & Speccy link: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/ih1UXM0EnNEjkKozp73STtd

Attached is my BSOD.txt file

ME{

Starting to think its either bad ram or hard disk.

Thank-you

Hi -
This is a direct quote from Microsoft XP BSOD help area -

BCCode: 19 0x00000019 BAD_POOL_HEADER (Your problem) - Check this thread for information on using BlueScreenView (already done)
MyEventViewer, and other methods
to troubleshoot BlueScreens - top 3 replies (+1 other).

http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7repair/thread/c675b7b8-795f-474d-a1c4-6b77b3fcd990
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
That could be drivers although antivirus/antispyware/security programs and other hardware are also probable causes. Updating the major drivers and BIOS would be the best plan of
attack.
ONLY IF NEEDED - If needed also try uninstalling your antivirus/security as a test.

BCCode: 19 0x00000019 <-- read this link
http://www.faultwire.com/solutions-fatal_error/BAD-POOL-HEADER-0x00000019-*1040.html?order=date

Run the Driver Verifier to see if that determines the cause (good idea to update BIOS and all major
drivers so see the next section for those methods).

You can disable Driver Verifier

Using Driver Verifier -

How to use Windows Driver Verifier Manager to Troubleshoot & Identify Driver Issues

You only list one BSOD, is this all that you have had, or just all that was recorded ??
Post back once you try these steps given -
EDIT - Speccy reports No Antivirus installed, but this is often a False reading.
Can you please clarify this -

Thank You -

All right I will report back with results.

It had more errors, but this is the one that popped on top.

Like every time it has blue screen it has more errors with different codes.

Thank-you

FWIW: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/207153-28-pentium-idles . Removed 2d link, does't work properly, but content from link reflects:

"Minimum/Maximum operating temperature ? 5°C - 69.1°C"

The above links do not work. :(

But I have O.E.M cd's for xp can I run a chkdsk /f /r
to fix the problem, since this seems to happen
in the NTFS file system?

I updated my Graphics Card and it made matters worse. So I had to restore back to previous state. :(

All the drivers seem to be updated.

To answer your question: there is no antivirus installed on this anymore.

All the programs seem to crash or can't find there database. Very unstable

Thank-you (Fixes recommend to update to a Newer Service pack )

Okay Thanks for your Help Here are the results:

1. Updated Graphic Drivers (Intel) ---> Did not really help

2. Pulled Out Ram Stick 1 of 2 ---> This helped it stopped the B.S.O.D


My 2 symptom still happens:

EVERY program crashes after I open it!

It could be to a bad stick so I will swap one for the other.. :mellow:

any suggestions as to why a computer programs crash especially Firefox when running video>?

THanks :lol:

Many reasons for crashes...hardware, software, malware, corrupted files, to name the ones I would most suspect.

Beyond that, I would just be guessing and that won't be of any value :).

I would start with testing the hardware involved...no point in wasting efforts if that cannot be removed as a suspect.

2. Pulled Out Ram Stick 1 of 2 ---> This helped it stopped the B.S.O.D

I would start from here instead and continue from the other program crashes which most likely point to corrupt files or infection. Safemode or clean boot would check the difference.
