What CD might that be?

What were you attempting to do...when things went wrong?

System manufacturer and model?

Sorry for late response, I can get access to a machine rarely,
My own used to have Win 95, then 98 and finally XP.
the CD is the original used to instal the XP PRO SP3 two years ago, and worked fine.
Except that the machine was extremely slow for few days.
Then BSoD appeared with one error: Special_Pool_Detected_Memory_Corrupted.
could not reboot past the Splash screen. Hope thisis what you need to know

Hi Picolo. It sounds like you might have a bad stick of RAM. I would download Memtest86, burn it to a CD and boot to it. It will check your memory and tell you if it is bad.

Well...this is what the Aumha.org site has to say:

0x000000C1: SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTED_MEMORY_CORRUPTION
A driver wrote to an invalid section of the special memory pool. You need a new driver!

<<Except that the machine was extremely slow for few days.>>

That could be many things, including an indication of malware/infection.

Have you tried safe mode?
