    I keep getting the BSOD, the same one each time, the forementioned Bad Pool Header Screen.
    I have not updated any of my drivers except my display driver, but the error has been going on since I installed Windows 7 a few days ago. If any other information is needed, please ask.

    I just need a permanent fix.

    ram check first -
    grab a copy of memtest 86+
    make a boot floppy disk and copy over the memtest executable to it
    restart the machine, load memtest and go have a loooong lunch.

    then drivers -
    also as soon as win7 is connected to the net it searches for updated drivers for pretty much everything,
    most of my drivers installed straight from the dvd, however even though they worked already
    win7 decided i needed new ethernet drivers and drivers for my screen, so its likely that
    it has updated something else, or it could just be your gpu drivers causing the bsod.

    go here - Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Windows Update
    and select view update history from the leftside panel, should show you everything thats been updated so far,
