    Hi Psonics
    I froze my XP Blue screen of death and it comes up with bad_pool_header and bad pool call when the game reboots my PC. I disabled theose features but still getting the error. Any ideas?

    My card is overclocked by manufacturer to high specs (asus TOP) but every other title works fine. Even the near FEAR Preseus runs flawlessly at max settings. Its just Crysis and Quake wars that reboot the minute the title/selection screen comes up and that bad_pool comes up. Do you know what the cause of that is perhaps? Is it a 3d setting or windows Kernel fault? Apparently its windows, maybe service pack 2 related ive been told, but im running SP3

    Hey Psi
    Thanks for your replies.
    Yeah, it still hapopens. Only with those games still. Everything else plays well. Its not SP2, it did that with a clean install. I wrote to the game manufacturers and no reply. The one said check DX9...whatever...
    I downloaded the latest updates and still errors. Once in a while my PC now boots then as it loads the desktop it crashes and bad_pool_header is displayed again. WTF... I gess the only ppl that would know is microsoft now.

I posted some other options in your first question thread. If those don't work, and you re-install windows, do not install SP3, and see if there is any difference

    Have you OC'd anything? Or updated the BIOS when this started happening? Changed the ram/ram settings at all? Have you tried taking out your ram and trying one at a time? I know we covered some things in the previous posts, but need a little refresher here.

    Also, after swaping the ram, try running Memtest and see if it causes any errors.

    Also, install dumpchk from Microsoft. Dumpchk is located on the Windows XP CD-ROM. Install the Support Tools by running Setup.exe from the Support\Tools folder on the CD-ROM. By default, Dumpchk.exe is installed to the Program Files\Support Tools folder.

    After a crash occurs, run dumpchk from the Start/Run command and post what it lists here.

    Dumpchk is a little bit wierd to use, so you can also follow the steps HERE to download windows debugging tools. After downloading and following the steps for both the tools and the Symbols package, run the software and find the last minidump, they post here what it lists.

    usually it is caused by memory/ram access. Although, I've heard that it can be caused by SP3. Have you tried installing with SP2 only and playing the games? Does it still happen then?

  • Dave MacPhee

    also, have you downloaded the latest patches for those games?

    I have read and heard that sometimes Microsoft Indexing servive may cause this problem on SP2 and later. You could try to disable that from startup and see if it still causes a problem...

    TO do so, click on start menu and then on run. Type in the box:


    and press enter..

    Find "Indexing Service" in the list and right click on it and choose properties. Then in the new box, change startup type to disabled, then click ok. Close services, and reboot the system, run the game and see if that helps..

    If not, then just go back into the services.msc and change startup type back to automatic.

    You've really stumped me on this one, I will continue to keep this on my list of things, and if I find updates or info, I will post here from time to time.. Hopefully something will show itself and we'll find a fix!

I can not play 3D games because the screen is black even i have installed driver, its does not work, i only play with 2D games,before that i still normally playing games 3D,i guess something is wrong with...

Let's see if something IS wrong with the card, or it is something else.

Some of what I may state, may sound like I'm insulting your intelligence. Please be aware that this is the furthest thing from my mind. I'm just trying to 'Cover all bases', to help you get your problem solved.

1.Sometimes we get in a hurry, and look back to see that the monitor was not hooked into the graphics card, but was accidentally hooked into the VGA port on the motherboard.

2.If this is an Nvidia GeForce FX5200, and you're trying to play a game like Crysis, it isn't going to work. Not enough 'graphics power' on that card.

(You need at least an Nvidia GeForce 9800GT to use medium to medium/high settings)

You also need a decent processor.
Celeron, Pentium 4, and Pentium D won't cut it, and you should have 2GB's of Ram Memory.

3.The best way to install a graphics card is to install the drivers off of the CD, FIRST, then turn off the computer, unplug from power, de-static yourself, and install the graphics card.

Because as soon as a device is installed on a computer using Windows, Windows breaks it's neck trying to find compatible drivers for it.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will match up generic drivers out of it's database. It has THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

Won't be the right ones, though! You need THE drivers for that GeForce FX5200. The ones that came with it on that CD.
When you install THE drivers after you have installed the graphics card, you get a Driver Conflict.

Windows: "Which one's do I use? These or THESE?"

If this is the situation you may want to try this.

A.Turn off your computer normally. Unplug it from power. Open the case. Work on a table, and TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case.

(Your body carries Static electricity. Static will FRY OUT delicate computer hardware components! You may not see it or feel it! Computer unplugged from power, you're safe. Touch the metal frame, and your computer is safe. IF you get up, and leave for Any reason while working on your computer, when you come back TOUCH the metal frame again.

Install a graphics card while the computer is plugged into power, you'll fry out that graphics card!)

B.Remove your graphics card. You need to lay it down on a non-static area.

C.Push the Power On button in, and Hold it In for a count of Five seconds. Let go. Do this procedure Two more times.
You are clearing out CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS Setup, back to the factory default settings.

D.Now attach the monitor cable to the VGA port on the motherboard,

E.Plug the computer back into power. Leave the case open. You'll be back in there in a few minutes. (Do Not reach inside!)

F.WAIT 1 minute, then power on your computer. After Windows loads, go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs.
Remove the Nvidia software. ALL of it. Anything you see associated with the Nvidia name.

If you are asked to restart your computer, do so. If not, restart your computer. (Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Click on Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart)

G.After Windows loads, install the Drivers from the CD disk.

H.After you're done with the instllation, if you are asked to Restart your computer - NO!
Click on Restart Later. Close all windows, go back to your desktop screen. Turn your computer off.

Unplug from Power!

I.Touch the metal frame again. Install the graphics card. Close the computer case. Plug the monitor into the graphics card. Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Palit 8800 GT 1GB screen problem

Hi there,

This certainly sounds like the card is over heating, 120 celcius is way to high for the card to be working as mine is the 8800 GTX and runs at 60 celcius at the most. The blue screen just confirms this further as windows will do that to stop it from getting too hot. I would make sure that the fan is working properly on the card and if it has dust in it or anything like that then remove it and try again.
