I'm a university student at the University of Southern Denmark, and this year they decided to update their online systems (where they put up notes, homework, papers, exams etc.) to a new version. Ever since they got this version, i haven't been able to access my blackboard for more than a couple of minutes before my PC shuts down and enters the infamous blue screen of death giving me the BAD_POOL_HEADER error. I know you probably don't have enough information to fix this, but please help, i can't finish my education without BlackBoard :/


Thanks in advance,

Just to add, The BSOD bad pool header can point to different causes. What particular event when the computer goes to bluescreen?


issue is a problem with Windows memory allocation. Device driver issues are probably the most common, but this can have diverse causes including bad sectors or other disk write issues, and problems with some routers.
