Unfathomable error messages

An acquaintance of mine has got probs but it beats me, can anybody here help him? He says -

I just bought Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 also known as FS9 yesterday and once I start playing, I get a blue screen. I've had a total of 3 different errors so far. Here they are:

BAD_POOL_HEADER
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I have a mobile AMD Athlon XP-M 2800+ 2.13ghz
512MB RAM
BFG GeForce 6200 256mb OC

Help would be greatly appreciated

EDIT:: I got a HEX code from an error

BAD_POOL_HEADER
STOP:0X00000019

(0X00000020,0X822D2870,0X822D29A8,0X0A270001 )

There are settings in Flight Sim which allow for different degrees of detail, particularly graphics detail.

As a start it might be worth setting them all to minimum and see if it still crashes. FS is very intensive in terms of its needs.
