Hello, I have been trying for about a week now to fix the constant BSODs I have been getting with the error code with the most common error code of "Special Pool Detected Memory Corruption". A few details before the specs:

  • Never had BSODs before I recently upgraded the hardware on my computer
  • Had installed Win10 before I had upgraded any hardware without any issues
  • The only piece of hardware I did not upgrade was my PSU unless you count not upgrading my HDD
  • BSOD usually happen when I try to install something large like a game; rarely will happen randomly, but mostly will happen when installing something

Specs:

  • Intel i7-7700K @ 4.2 GHz 
  • Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz C15
  • GTX 1060 6GB 192-bit GDDR5
  • ASUS Prime Z270-P
  • Thermaltake SP-750M Smart M Series 750W (like I said this is the oldest part, but unless I missed something should be adequate for now)
  • Win10, x64, Version 1709, Build 16299.192

I attached the Sysnative file as well, if I can give any more information just let me know, thanks.

Sysnative not attached

 

I'd suggest also checking over in the General Security forums for your status with the Spectre/Meltdown updates.
They can cause problems with booting and/or BSOD's - but I'm not familiar with the details on them.
Here's a link to the General Security forums:  https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/45/general-security/

Sure I will check out that forum. And sorry did not click attach after choosing file, the classic mistake. I edited the post and it should be there now. Thanks

I took a quick look through one of the files just to see if I could understand anything from a glance and I saw that some of the drivers dates were pretty funky. Ranges from the 1960s to 2040s. Do not know if that is the  usual or not.

I would start by removing the RAM blow out all the dust then reseat them. Then I'd go to the manufacturer's website and make sure all the drivers are up to date. If that didn't help I'd run Memtest on each stick for 7 or 8 passes.

Last night I tried running everything with each stick manually because I did a clean install with a backup and still got BSOD. Found out that one of the ram sticks was faulty. Lesson learned to not trust the built in memory test.

FYI - driver dates can't be relied upon.  They give us clues, but we need to be familiar with what's OK and what isn't in order to figure them out.

Version numbers are better, but they're more difficult to find and may differ from driver to driver within the same program.
