Hi,

i've got problems using Win2000. it happens from time to time
that al of a sudden the "blue screen" appears and everything
is gone!

This time i got the following informationon my blue screen:

***STOP: 0x000000C2(0x00000050, 0xE2A7D000, 0x00001A7D, 0x06800000)
BAD_POOL_CALLER

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete. Contact your system administrator
or technical support group.


so what the earth went wrong? i doubt that my memory is not
working properly...

any comments welcome.

Thanks in advance,
Ken

Actually, I think that may not be the one I was thinking of...

See:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/ddtools/hh/ddtools/bccodes_8k9z.asp

This is an error in a DEVICE DRIVER.  Unless you are the developer of that driver, you really can't do much.

This could be a defective device driver or a defective hardware device.  The error 0x50 is:

"The current thread attempted to free a nonallocated paged pool address"

You need to know WHICH device is doing this.  Microsoft says:

"Activate Driver Verifier to obtain more information about these errors."

See:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/ddtools/hh/ddtools/dv_7g8j.asp 


(It's possible, that there is additional information on your BSOD referring to WHICH device is causing this.  See if that is the case.)

Thanks for your help.

so are you saying that it was due to an error in device driver, not my memory or anything else? ok, so how do i know which device driver? any tools that i can download and detect it for me?
