PC crashed, message reads "bad poole header". Once restarted it goes fine. Just reinstalled XP on my son's comp for sale. Any suggestions??

0x00000019: BAD_POOL_HEADER
A pool header issue is a problem with Windows memory allocation. Device
driver issues are probably the mstt common, but this can have diverse
causes including bad sectors or other disk write issues, and problems
with some routers. (By theory, RAM problems would be suspect for memory
pool issues, but I haven't been able to confirm this as a cause.)

Yes I have done some research myself and got most of the info.It seems it can result from any number of issues. I discovered that there was a wrong driver for the graphics and now have the correct one. I also cleaned the registry and it's been ok so far. Will see how it goes on sustained periods of use tomorrow. Thanks foryour input.
