I finally got the thing to stop rebooting on start up and now im getting a BSOD after the windows loading screen that sats BAD_POOL_HEADER stop 0x00000019. Anyone got any ideas?

    Update all your motherboard and video card drivers from manufacturers website.

    What card did you have before, and did you uninstall the drivers for the previous card?

    Did you disable the onboard video via the bios?? Its prolly that the system is confused at which output to use if you didn't disable it.

    If you added a new card to the system, and you're using that, then the on board video output is no longer needed. Look through all the options on the bios carefully, and disable onboard video.
