    Hi Eiseer and Welcome to WCF!

    Usual causes:
    Insufficient disk space, Device driver, Video card, BIOS, Breakpoint in startup without having a debugger attached, Hardware incompatibility, Faulty system service, 3rd party remote control, Memory

    STOP 0x00000019: BAD_POOL_HEADER
    Usual causes:
    Device driver

    Most BSOD's are related to driver errors. Old and pre Windows 7 drivers can and do cause BSOD's. When updating or checking for driver updates always go to your PC's, Motherboard or Hardware/Software Manufacturers website.

    This is because Windows Automatic Updates and updating through the Device Manager often "updates" your drivers to "older" versions.

    Miniddump files can help to diagnose your BSOD problem.

    To ensure minidumps are enabled:

    Go to Start and type in sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
    Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
    Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
    Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box.
    Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
    OK your way out.
    Reboot if changes have been made.

    To have a look at a list of drivers that are in use (loaded) when your system is running, download DriverView. If you select all (Ctrl+A) in DriverViews window you can save a *.txt log file of your drivers to examine at leisure.

    I'm not sure what Capt.Jack's schedule is but I sent him a link to this thread to see if he can be of assistance.

    Been a little busy. So lets get started. So as if now can you get into Windows. If so we need get the Minidump files to analysis. If not lets start with Hardware Diagnostic because sometimes a bad RAM or Hard drive can cause this. Follow this thread Hardware Diagnostic !! Captain Debugger and the Diagnostic. Most of the methods mentioned is done using a bootable disk.

    Good Luck !
