BSOD Bad_Pool_Caller

  yabadabado 11:41 01 May 2006

Suddenly started gettin this BSOD with the folloing numbers:
0x000000c2 0x00000007 0x0206000f 0x821596a8

Had a quick google and most posts point to changes in hardware or drivers. I havent done either for about 3 months and the prob only happened twice today.

There was also a post abuot 2 cd burning softwares being installed- again there have been no issues with this since i installed both ( more then 3 months).

Only thing i did yesterday that i hadnt done for a while is use DVD shrink ( which i have done previously without problems)...

any ideas as to the cause?

Try reinstalling your printer drivers.

have now removed a shared printer ( which isnt on the network anymore anyway).

Gor Adobe and Macromedia printers and microfost image writer ( ie no more actual printers). Should i get rid of these too?

  AndySD 11:51 01 May 2006

No they should be fine.

k that case all i can do now is wait!

cheers for your help!

have you tried removing the memory chips and then reseating them as Bad_Pool_Caller errors are quiet often memory related, also check the cpu fan is running and that the cooler is not clogged up with dust and other debris,worth doing a system restore (if your using win xp) to a couple of days before errors started, you never know it could be an update thats caused the problem

Will check the ram- did have one stick replaced by crucial in feb cos it went bad but will remove and check. Also i recently removed the fan from the cooler and cleaned up ( left the heatsink on) so all clean but again will check.
will see how it goes and post back in a few days.

didnt get a chance to check the memory ( will run memtest over night) but this morning got the error:
(0x00000007 0x00000cd4 0x02060001 0x81f5bcd8)
Seems like a diff code every time could it be a bad stick of RAM?

  yabadabado 10:17 08 May 2006

Reseated ( infact swaped the two sticks around) on friday night. Everything went fine until this morning ( monday) when got blue screen again!
numbers are again different...
0x00000007 0x00000cd4 0x02060001 0x82a16e10

Could this be a bad memory module? only the 0x82a16e10 has changed from the last error (is this a memory address in RAM?)

Also fan on my graphics card started to die!
Lets hope PNY sort it out quick!
