Fix DRIVER_CORRUPTED_EXPOOL Error on Windows 10

DRIVER CORRUPTED EXPOOL error is caused due to issues with device drivers on Windows 10/8/7. This indicates that the system attempted to access invalid memory at a process IRQL that was too high. It can occur at any point while you are using your computer. The main cause of this error comes out to be some error in the System Pool where a driver becomes incompatible with the operating system, or the configuration files get corrupted in some of the other ways. We suggest out some potential solutions that will help you fix this Stop Error on your Windows computer.

1] Try System Restore

You can use System Restore to get back to a previously set stable state of your computer.

2] Run Blue Screen Troubleshooter

You may also run the Blue Screen Troubleshooter. The built-in Troubleshooter is easy to run and fixes BSODs automatically. The online Windows 10 Blue Screen Troubleshooter from Microsoft is a wizard that is meant to help novice users fix their Stop Errors. It offers helpful links along the way.

3] Update Device Drivers

You need to ensure that you have the latest updated devices drivers installed on your computer system. You may use a free driver updater to do it as well.

4] Uninstall Faulty Drivers

First of all, start by hitting the WINKEY + R button combination to start the Run box and type in devmgmt.msc and then finally hit Enter. This will open the Device Manager.

Now, if your computer has any faulty drivers, their icon will be marked with a yellow exclamation mark.

Right click on such entries, and then click on Uninstall. After you uninstall them, just reboot your computer and allow the computer to reinstall the driver.

5] Update BIOS

The BIOS is a sensitive part of a computer. Though it is a software component, the functioning of the hardware largely depends on it. Hence, you should be highly careful when modifying anything in the BIOS. I would recommend you to skip this method if you do not know what you are doing or do not know how to do it particularly.

To update the BIOS, start by hitting the WINKEY + R button combination to start the Run box and type in msinfo32 and then finally hit Enter.

This will open System Information. On the bottom, you will find a search field; there you have to search for BIOS Version and hit Enter.

There, you will be able to see the version and developer of the BIOS installed on your computer.

Now, you go to your manufacturer’s website and then get the latest version of BIOS downloaded on to your computer.

If you happen to use a laptop, make sure that you keep it plugged in until this BIOS update is installed.

Double Click on the newly downloaded file to install the new version of the BIOS. Once done, just Reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.

In case that you use an assembled CPU to run your copy of Windows 10, it would be pretty complicated for you.

If you do not see a proper manufacturer’s name in the System Information window, you will have to check the website of your motherboard’s manufacturer. Once you visit the website, go to the downloads section of the website to get the latest version of the BIOS for your computer.  Usually, American Megatrends’ are used to assemble computers, but in either case, you can even check Windows Updates for any new version of BIOS available for your computer.

6] Reset Windows 10 PC

You can try Reset This PC feature in Windows 10. You could also use the Refresh Windows Tool from Microsoft.

Hope something helps!
