Blue Screen Error

  ventanas 09:37 04 Sep 2008

On one of the office machines (XP Pro)
Bad_Pool_Header. There seems to be a legion of possibilities for this error which only occurs on the first boot, and started yesterday. I have system restored back to Monday with no luck.
Restart the machine and all is well.

Just wondered if anyone could offer some advice for which i would be very grateful.

I've always found that this is associated with a bad hard drive.
BIOS struggling to find the drive on initial boot.

Always tempting to suspect PSU on first boot as well so maybe swap the power plug to the HDD and retry.

Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\

I'll swap the plug first and if no good will swap out the drive. I've got a spare.

Thanks again.

Changed the cable and it started up twice a fast without error.

Hopefully it's fixed, so thanks again.
