  1. Have just updated my computer and put clean install of Windows XP Pro on, The PC crashes intermittently to BSOD with the following message:

    BAD_POOL_CALLER

    Stop: 000000C2 (0x00000007,0x00000CD4,0x024C004,0x889148B0)

    I do not understand these codes so would be very gratefuil for any help in resolving this problem.

    The PC does not crash in any particular program it just happens randomly no matter what program I am using.

    Have run both Virus checker and anti-spyware and system is clean

    Temps for sytem are ok CPU 50degrees, mobo 38degrees, GPU 51degrees so don't think its a overheating problem.

    Thanks a lot.

    generally caused by faulty memory. Run memtest 86+ booted from a floppy or cd rom.
    run for at least 7 passes.
