My pc will blue screen and reboot when I try to open certain programs. I tried to start NFS underground 2 and it crashed and rebooted, it still doing this. Last night it did the same thing when I tried to open the sound card control panel.
How can I work out whats causing this and fix it?

Not tried safe mode yet ashley. I turned off the automatic reboot so now at least I have an error message.
BAD_POOL_CALLER Whatever that means. Googling in a mo!
error code: 0x000000C2

Does that mean anything?

click here gives a couple of solutions, try the one from Anurag Bhardwaj about half way down.
