Solved Getting Blue screen of death

Post by airtas on 27th July 2009, 4:57 pm

I am trying to repair my cousins PC and every so often the PC GETS a blue screen one blue screen said

BAD_POOL_CALLER (this was on the top top of the screen)

and on the bottom of the screen


Tech info:

0x000000C2 (then more codes in parenthesis)


I have also gotten the PC to get a blue screen that says Check your bios and does not list BAD POOL CALLER but does list new numbers on the bottom............is this just a generic blue screen?


I am currently running MEMTEST-86

any ideas?

Almost all 0x8E errors are caused by faulty ram, I would recommend you perform memory tests:

Hello,

Yes, it matters. Using different RAM speed smight cause compatibility issues for most motherboards, which is why you get the BSOD.
