Device driver frustration

If I click on my computer and right click either of my two hard drives the computer reboots.
They are both Maxtor 80gb SATA drives.
Right clicking on any of the other drives, ( USB 2 external hard drive, ZIP drive, USB2 floppy/card reader), causes no problems.

I also tried going in through my computer/manage/disk management and as soon as I right clicked either of the two drives and trird to select properties it rebooted.

I sent an error report to Microsoft and the reply came back that it was a device driver that was causing the problem but could not elaborate on that.

I am running XP home and tried a system restore to no avail.

Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Control panel > system > advanced > start up and recovery > settings. Untick " auto restart "

This might stop it rebooting. You will probably get an error message when you right click the drive. What does it say.

Error message reads.
BAD_POOL_HEADER
STOP: 0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0x894910E8, 0x89491140, 0x1A0B0002).

It sound like it may be the EIDE drivers, These come with Motherboard CD and if you now the computer modem or what Motherboard, you should be able to get these from the appropriate site.

This is a brand new computer that I built about 2 months ago, AMD 64 3500, ABITAX8 mobo, 2,1gb Crucial 3200.
It is still working perfectly apart from the richt click annoyance,
if it cannot be resolved I will have to use diskeeper to defragment the hard drives.

Did you load all motherboard drivers

Quite a bit on google click here
click here=

Maybe SP2 or motherboard drivers or anything.~~)

I have downloaded Diskeeper as this program does what I was trying to achieve with the right click and does a better job of defragmenting.
Thanks to everyone for their help.
