Hello everyone, and welcome to my first thread! Hopefully, it's my last one. I have a "huge" problem with my computer right now. It started when I got another 2gbs of RAM for my computer(same memory stick), and I suddenly got a lot of blue screens. I ran memtest on each of the sticks, and it turned out that the RAM I got from my friend was broken. I removed it, and placed the working RAM (I ran it to 100% in memtest86, no errors) in the DIMM1 slot, and started the computer. It worked.

Next day, I came home and tried to boot the computer. I got to the point where you will log in, and then it gave me a blue screen. It said "BAD_POOL_CALLER". This happened EVERY time. Sometimes, it actually came to the "Loading Windows", and the computer just rebooted, without any errors whatsoever.

So, I removed the RAM-stick, and put it in again. It worked, until I came home the next day, and tried to boot my computer. Today, I got the computer to start once again by taking out the RAM and putting it in again, and I read the minidump file. It stated something with:
"Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe ( nt+9028b )"

So, I made some googling and found out that it's a very common BSOD-causer.
I just want to know if there is any way EXCEPT reinstalling Windows and repairing windows with my Windows 7-Disc, because I don't have it.

Any help? Would really appreciate it.

Got new RAM, used it, got a lot of BSOD, removed the RAM, still got BSOD
