ok, that gets rid of one potential problem, needs more troubleshooting, let us know what else you find
Ok so it seems I've got:
I took the mobo install cd out of the drive and I haven't gotten the bad_pool_header bsod error in a while.
Got hit with the Page_fault_in_nonpaged_area again just down upon windows starting.
Ok I downloaded the program. Should I just post up the full reports? Also is crash address what caused the crash?????
Ok so everytime the crash address is:
Everything is new on the PC except the video card which was bought a while back when the 9800GTX first came out. Is there anyway to run a memory test to see if it's causing the BSOD? I know the HDD test came through no errors.

I assume that you've not touched anything in BIOS? The random nature of these BSODs suggests a RAM problem. Some BIOSes are not good at setting the correct defaults for RAM over a certain speed, although I would expect 1333MHz stuff to be OK. Have you tried Memtest or similar?
Nothing has been touched in the bios. This computer was just assembled no oc'ing or anything. Will try mem test.
Could I pull one stick out try it then vice versa?
Mem test is rather synthetic kinda test however, has worked for me before to find bad memory, this other dudes computer I was fixing. There's a chance it won't show any errors and memory is still bad, can find out for sure with known good memory and it having lack of error's or BSOD.
Well it came back with an error!! Will this cause a BSOD????
"Memory error detected! Pair 388018868 does not store values accurately.
MemTest has detected that your computer cannot accurately store data in RAM.
You need to fix this."
Yep, I think it's confirmation that RAM is bad. Let me know what RAM it is, brand and speed out of curiosity, the RAM that failed, then we should get some more new good RAM, maybe RAM selection advice if you want.
It's just the most probable cause of BSOD error's. Could be something else attached that I mentioned before. I doubt it though.

Man what a bummer! Well they just issued me a refund RMA. After looking at the reviews there seems to be ALOT of RMA's and multiple RMA's a matter a fact. So I went with the refund option and I am going to buy a different set of memory.
It is this memory:
Hey and thank you soo much for sticking with me through the trouble shooting! I certainly would be lost right now. I'm gonna hop back on newegg now and try to find something better. Going to stay under $75 total cost.
