Bad Pool Caller message??

I got a blue screen with the message that windows was being shut down and Bad Pool Caller. The message goes on to suggest removing anything new however nothing new has been installed. It ends with the message ''beginning dump of physical memory.''
When rebooting the screen returns but automatically shuts the computer down after a short time. I have a Dell Inspiron/Windows XP
Any help is much appreciated!!

BAD_POOL_CALLER is a stop error message that is caused because of problems with the memory management.

There is a list of more than thirty such causes that can give you this error message. If the stop error is consistent every time the system is rebooted, the following method will be effective in solving the problem:
* The hardware and RAM should be checked initially.
* Boot the system once again using the OS setup CD, or use a boot setup that has a GUI like BartPE.
* With RunScanner it is possible to use a memory test tool.
* Select a single account
* If all the accounts open then the system registry hive might be the problem.
* Locate the hive damaged and rename it, do not delete it.
* Create another hive from the backup or from the restore point.
* Initially uses the latest one and keep checking the restore points that come later.
* Avoiding harvesting any replacement hives from the hard drive booted Windows.
* After which compare the hives for differences.

This is one of the ways of fixing BAD_POOL_CALLER errors. Another method is to reinstall the OS but occasionally shows a disk read error or an error on the same lines. Switching the computer off for a minute or more and then switching it on can solve it since the error is only a slight glitch in the system operation.
The BAD_POOL_CALLER is seen for the first time after installing a hardware or software it is recommended that the computer be restarted. If it doesn’t solve the problem, the installation of the hardware or software should be checked for corrections. If the problem persists the installed hardware and software should be disabled, and the BIOS memory options like caching or shadowing should be disabled too.
The safe mode can be used as well to remove or stop components.
To enable the safe mode just press F8 when the machine is being restarted and select it from the Advance Startup options and correct the problem. The installation of the graphics card is another reason the BAD_POOL_CALLER error shows up. A simple reinstallation of the driver can solve the problem.
Microsoft has also acknowledged that the BAD_POOL_CALLER Stop 0xC2 error pops up when trying to print a document that contains a corrupt font.
A hot fix is available at www.support.microsoft.com

Hello i have an HP windows 7 i turned it on and it goes to blue hp screen and freezes up


A blue screen error usually comes up on Windows 7 when there is a serious hardware or software issue that may be causing Windows to Shut Down unexpectedly. At times, a message may also come up on your screen saying "Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer."

To troubleshoot this issue, you may need to try out multiple troubleshooting options to detect whether the issue is with your hardware or software and to resolve the same as per the recommended procedure.

To know more about your troubleshooting options to get rid of blue screen error, you need to refer to the following Microsoft and HP support pages:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c00372711#N182

The above troubleshooting steps may also help you to resolve the freezing issue. If they don't, please let us know so that we can suggest you additional troubleshooting options for the same.

MY LAPTOP GOES TO THIS BLUE SCREEN THEN SHUTS DOWN WHY DOES IT DO THIS


Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

My acer aspire 5310 gives blue death screen (Bad pool caller) plus it does not detect the hard drive


If you are getting a blue screen in your Windows operating system that says something about a bad pool caller, you are in for a tough ride. The bad pool caller error means that some piece of software somewhere on your computer has done something wrong. For this reason it is important to write down the error codes that you receive with this message to help in determining what exactly is going on.If you have successfully been able to record these error codes in some way and have access to a computer that is working, the best place to start is on the Microsoft website. Once you get to their website, try entering the error codes that you have written down to see if they can give you more detailed information about the software that is causing the problem and any possible solutions to correct the issue.If you have not been able to find a solution to your bad pool caller error using the above method, then there are a few things that you can try. Often a hardware device can also cause problems that result in the bad pool caller error message, especially USB devices. Start by removing all of your peripherals including printers, scanners, external modems, USB hubs, etc. if you do not receive the error message once you have done this, then add one device back at a time, until you find the source of your problem. If this works and you know what device was causing the issue, you can try reinstalling the software for that device or replacing the USB cable that is connected to that device to see if that will solve the problem. If the problem still persists, it would be a good idea to run MemTest86, which can be downloaded online, to test your RAM for errors. A bad hard drive can also result in bad pool caller messages.If you have recently purchased your computer or have warranty on your computer, perhaps the easiest way to deal with this difficult problem is to take it back to them. Because of the nature of a bad pool caller message, which can be caused by almost anything, it is easier to have them deal with it rather than trying to isolate and correct the issue on your own.If you have built your own computer or are working on an older computer that no longer has a warranty, then you may also be able to get some clues into what is causing the problem by looking through the Windows Event Viewer for error messages or information. If you do not know how to do this, then a quick search online will explain how things are logged in the Event Viewer and how to interpret the information provided.Finally if all else fails and you are sure the problem is not related to a peripheral or other hardware device, then you can reload the Windows operating system on your computer. This can be done without losing your personal data and files, but be sure that you perform a complete backup before attempting this step just in case. There are the odd situations in which a bad pool caller error will occur during the installation of Windows in which case you will need to try and completely reformat your hard drive and start from scratch.

Blue Screen of death


According to this link, the memory of Compaq Evo N610c can be upgradable to 1024 mb.

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11382_div/11382_div.HTML

Memory Upgrade for Compaq Evo N610C, the Compaq Evo N610C takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with of Memory. You can upgrade your Compaq Evo N610C to up to a maximum of 1.0 GB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with standard Memory installed. For best system performance use the maximum amount of allowed Memory per slot for your system. (Souce: http://www.memorystock.com/memory/CompaqEvoN610C.html)

So you have to install 512mb memory module on each slot to make up 1024mb of memory.

Did you install 512mb memory module on each slot or did you just install 1GB memory module in one slot?

Try to go back to 256mb RAM and see if you will have the same blue screen error. If you did not receive any blue screen, try to add memory into it or just insert 512mb first and then oserve again if you will have the blue screen error.

You may also want to go to these links for other suggestions.

Try starting it in safe mode. (Hold F8 after power on). If you get your icon screen go to start, run and type in msconfig. Click startup and disable all the items. Hit OK and try a normal restart. This error can be caused by a bad program starting up.
