The 0x00000019 or BAD_POOL_HEADER error is an indication that something went wrong with Windows memory allocation. This can be caused by several factors, including faulty hardware, corrupted drivers, or even software bugs.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your System and Drivers: Outdated system software and drivers can cause compatibility issues and instability. Ensuring that your operating system and drivers are up-to-date can potentially resolve this error.
  2. Run a Memory Diagnostic: This error might indicate a problem with your computer’s physical memory (RAM). Use Windows Memory Diagnostic or a third-party tool to check for errors in your RAM.
  3. Check for Disk Errors: Use the built-in Windows Check Disk utility to scan your system for hard drive errors. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type “chkdsk /f” to run this tool.
  4. Run System File Checker (SFC): The System File Checker tool can find and fix potential issues with your system files. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type “sfc /scannow” to run this tool.
  5. Use System Restore: If the error started appearing recently, you may be able to resolve it by restoring your system to a previous state when everything was functioning correctly.
  6. Perform a Clean Installation: If none of the above steps resolve the issue, you might need to perform a clean installation of Windows. This should be a last resort, as it will erase all data on your system drive.

Always make sure to back up all important data before making significant changes to your system to avoid potential data loss. If you can’t resolve the issue yourself, consider seeking help from a professional or from Microsoft Support.
