Came home from school,turned on my pc and it a stated one of the disks needed to be checked for consistency. While checking the C:\ it said that the BOOTEX.log had to be truncated. Anyway after it finished checking it continued to load and just before the blue windows loading screen came up the screen switched to a BSOD. with the following message - BAD_POOL_CALLER

0x000000C2 (0x00000043, 0xD239000, 0x00000000 , 0x00000000 )

I tried restarting in safe mode as suggested but the same thing happened again. Any tips on how i can resolve this problem?

Ive been looking on the net for help and it suggested that there was a conflict on pc's that had been upgraded from the OS Win 2000*Grinler to XP. This was done ages ago and i shouldn't see why there should be a problem as ther hasnt been one before. Also read up on performing an in place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP. IM just wonderin if i do this will i lose all of the programs and data already stored on my pc???

Also my retarded brother just told me he didnt shutdown the pc properly and just switched off the pc while the blue windows (saving your settings screen was on). hope this helps .

PLEASE REPLY ASAP thanx

Have you tried, rebooting in safe mode, then selecting, "last known good configuration" ?

I am a beginner and can't tell much, but hope to help.

As a BAD_POOL_CALLER STOP error can be caused by bad drivers, you may want to post your computer's hardware specs so we could zero in on the culprit. You may also want to state what hardware you've changed recently.

Bootex.log is a file created by chkdsk.exe when it is run; its results are rolled into the main log after the system finished booting. If chkdsk.exe is interrupted, bootex.log can become corrupted. When chkdsk.exe runs again, it tries to write to bootex.log, which is, unfortunately, now corrupt. It doesn't know this until after the check; so even though it was deleted by chkdsk.exe, it was written to in the mean time and is therefore still corrupt. The fix is to run under the Recovery console by either booting from the Windows XP CD or running \i386\winnt32.exe on the Windows XP CD with the argument /cmdcons. When in the console, run chkdsk.exe /p to fix the file. Then type del c:\bootex.log to remove the offending file. Reboot, and all is taken care of.

Performing an in place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP will leave your programs and data intact. It's what we refer to as a "repair" of Windows. You can find more information on it here: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Microsoft on 0x0 errors
This could be a memory issue. Try Memorytest

How to debug STOP 0xC2 errors: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=265879&sd=RMVP

If this isn't a memory issue, then you'll have to isolate which driver is causing it. Otherwise, updating all drivers will probably fix it. Start with the motherboard/chipset devices, then the Video, then the onboard devices, then the NIC and sound, then everything else.
