I get a blue screen of death a few times a day. Whether im surfing the net, windows at idle, or gaming it doesnt matter. Ive got new drivers for my USR 56K modem, my MSI Neo Platinum device drivers, GeForce4 5700 card driver from NVIDIA, and Creative Labs 16 PCI sound card. This is what I get...

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

You think its power supply? I have generic 350W. DO you think its memory card? (Kingston 512MB DDR400) Or what you think?

Post full system specs. I've never seen that particular error message before. I wonder if a clean install would fix things?

That error code is important and so far i can only find that error code appearing in windows 2000. Here is the microsoft page on it. http://msdn.microsoft.com/libr...ult....2kmsgs/1140.asp' ">http://msdn.microsoft.com/libr...en-us/w2kmsgs/1140.asp

QUOTE If this is the first time you have booted after installing new hardware, remove the hardware and boot again. Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List to verify that the hardware and its drivers are compatible with Windows 2000. For information about the hardware, contact the supplier. If you are installing Windows 2000 for the first time, check the Windows 2000 system requirements, including the amount of RAM and disk space required to load the operating system. Also, check the Hardware Compatibility List to verify that the system can run Windows 2000. If Windows 2000 is loaded and no new hardware has been installed, reboot with recovery options set to create a dump file. If the message continues to appear, select the Last Known Good option when you reboot. If there is no Last Known Good configuration, try using the Emergency Repair Disk. If you do not have an Emergency Repair Disk, contact your technical support group.

My guess is this might also apply to XP.

First try to remember if you changed anything right before these BSODs happened. like installing a new driver or installing a peripheral. Check your system device manager, go to control panel, system, hardware, device manager. Check to see if you see any exclamation points.

That power supply could be causing the problem, 350watt generic is pretty bad for an a64. I have a Mad dog 350 that has 22A on the +12v line and its ok. But the question is how many amps does your power supply ahve on it. If the power supply isnt powering enough of the system then that would cause the BSOD.

So you can either replace the power supply, which I would do no matter what, but if that power supply doesnt fix the prolem, reformat the drive.

Responded to your PM. It's a very common Driver conflict with SP2 error. Google it, and you'll see.
Cheers,

My system is a AMD 3400+ 64, MSI Neo Platinum mobo, Kingston 512MB DDR400, Chaintech GeForce 4 FX 5700LE 256MB, Creative Labs 16 PCI sound card, USR 56 PCI modem, 48X Samsung CD-rom, iomega CD-RW ext. 48x24x48. As for the power supply it is 350W with 15A on the +12V.

Should I get the video driver from Chaintech rather than from NVIDIA's site?

Were you able to fix your problem with the BAD_POOL_HEADER ? I have the 3400+ / Neo Platinum combo, but with an ATI 9800 PRO, and get the EXACT same problems. I get up to 5 BSODs a day. Just wondering if you were able to cure your problem......

Depending on what game it is if you minimized it will cause you to crash, not sure if this is the same error or not but, I know DEP (Date excution protection I think), can cause this, I had to turn mine off until microsoft fixes it. Thats all I can suggest...

Also 15A on the 12+ rail is NOT GOOD... That may be causing that issue also......
