Hi,

Results verified by WinDBG, DumpCHK, and BlueScreenView.

The Bug_Check was C5 CAUSE ntkrnlmp.exe which is a Windows component which means something
else drove it into Fault.

BugCheck C5, {fffffa8009430e08, 2, 0, fffff8000300d5f7}
Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!ExAllocatePoolWithTag+517 )
IMAGE_NAME:  ntkrnlmp.exe
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID:  X64_0xC5_2_VRF_nt!ExAllocatePoolWithTag+517
BUCKET_ID:  X64_0xC5_2_VRF_nt!ExAllocatePoolWithTag+517

Unfortunately no real help in the minidump.

What were the original Bug_Check or Stop Codes such as 9F, D1, 0x00000124, or 0x0000003B?

========================================

Bug_Check : C5     0x000000C5

Bug Check 0xC5: DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL

This topic has not yet been rated Rate this topic

The DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL bug check has a value of 0x000000C5. This indicates that the system attempted to access invalid memory at a process IRQL that was too high.

Important Information If You Have Received a STOP Code

If you have received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss. A hardware device, its driver, or related software might have caused this error. If your copy of Windows came with your computer, call the manufacturer of your computer. If you purchased Windows separately from your computer, Microsoft provides support. To find contact information for Microsoft or your computer manufacturer, Contact Support.

If you have experience with computers and want to try to recover from this error, follow the steps provided in the Microsoft article Resolving STOP (Blue Screen) Errors in Windows.

The following actions might prevent an error like this from happening again:

  1. Download and install updates and device drivers for your computer from Windows Update.
  2. Scan your computer for computer viruses.
  3. Check your hard disk for errors.
DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL Parameters

The following parameters are displayed on the blue screen.

Parameter Description

1

Memory referenced

2

IRQL at time of reference

3

0: Read

1: Write

4

Address that referenced memory

 

Cause

The kernel attempted to access pageable memory (or perhaps completely invalid memory) when the IRQL was too high. The ultimate cause of this problem is almost certainly a driver that has corrupted the system pool.

In most cases, this bug check results if a driver corrupts a small allocation (less than PAGE_SIZE). Larger allocations result in bug check 0xD0 (DRIVER_CORRUPTED_MMPOOL).

Resolution

If you have recently installed any new software, check to see if it is properly installed. Check for updated drivers on the manufacturer's website.

To debug this error, use the special pool option of Driver Verifier. If this fails to reveal the driver that caused the error, use the Global Flags utility to enable the special pool by pool tag.

For information about the special pool, consult the Driver Verifier section of the Windows Driver Kit.

===============================================================

BiosVersion = 2001  
BiosReleaseDate = 07/08/2011 <- BIOS is very current.
SystemManufacturer = System manufacturer
SystemProductName = System Product Name
BaseBoardManufacturer = ASUSTeK Computer INC.
BaseBoardProduct = M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
BaseBoardVersion = Rev X.0x

Check with ASUStek Support, their on-line documentation and drivers, and ask in their forums
about any known issues with that model motherboard.

The drivers and BIOS seem to be very current though there may be more current versions.

Manually checking and updating drivers, BIOS, and low level chipset drivers is advisable.
Also check ASUStek for updates to the low level chipset drivers.

References to Vista also apply to Windows 7.

This is my generic how to for proper driver updates :

This utility makes it easy to see which versions are loaded :

DriverView - Free - utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
description, version, product name, company that created the driver, and more.
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/driverview.html

For Drivers check System Maker as fallbacks and Device Maker's which are the most current.
Control Panel - Device Manager - Display Adapter - write down the make and complete model
of your video adapter - double click - Driver's tab - write down the version info. Now click UPdate
Driver (this may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers) - then Right Click -
Uninstall - REBOOT this will refresh the driver stack.

Repeat that for Network - Network Card (NIC), Wifi, Sound, Mouse and Keyboard if 3rd party
with their own software and drivers and any other major device drivers you have.

Now go to System Maker's site (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) (as rollback) and then Device
Maker's site (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI as examples) and get their latest versions. (Look for
BIOS, Chipset and software updates at System Maker's site while there.)

Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - Right Click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
each installation.

Always check in Device Manager - Drivers tab to be sure the version you are installing actually
shows up. This is because some drivers rollback before the latest is installed (sound drivers
particularly do this) so install a driver - reboot - check to be sure it is installed and repeat as
needed.

Repeat at Device Makers - BTW at Device Makers DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER - check
manually by model.

Manually look at manufacturer's sites for drivers - and Device Maker's sites.

Installing and updating drivers in Windows 7 (updating drivers manually using the methods above
is preferred to ensure the latest drivers from System maker and Device makers are found)

If you update drivers manually then it is a good idea to disable Driver Installations in Windows
Updates, this leaves Windows Updates ON however it will not install drivers which will usually be
older and cause issues. If Updates suggests a new driver then HIDE it (Right Click on it) and then
go look for new ones manually if you wish.

==========================================

Memory tests do not catch all errors such as mismatched memory (possible even for sticks
that appear to be identical) and when faster memory is placed in system behind slower memory.
So it is best to also swap sticks in and out to check for those even if all memory tests fail to show
a problem.

To test RAM check here - let it run 4+ hours or so.  <-- best method
