  1. Hi

    My OS is Vista and whenever I first start my computer (cold start) I also get a BSOD (black screen of death) a few seconds after the windows loading bar comes up. However the BSOD stops about the 4th restart. I have attached a zipped version of my Mini dump file, could someone please tell me what is going wrong.

    One minidump is not enough to allow us to make a good diagnosis but your single dump points to a "bad Pool"... I would start by checking or substituting your system memory. Did you build this system?

    New minidumps point to:
    pool corruption-possible system driver issue
    PCANDIS4.sys- Netgear print protocol


    Are we getting any closer?
