I'm running XP HomeEd on a Pentium4 with 2.00GB Ram and 250 GB drive which is partitioned into c: 110GB / D: 106 GB and E: 9.5 GB. (i bought the machine like this). It's got a dvd reader (F:) and writer (G:), four different card readers (I: to L:) and an external USB 250GB backup drive and an 80GB firewire drive. All this used to run smoothly with a 3G Datacard Internet connection. I'm using System Mechanic for maintenance/ Trend Micro PcCillin for security and have done all my Windows updates.
Yesterday it started crashing out of the blue to a blue screen, then I re-booted to last known good (safe mode would crash) scheduled a fixdisk and tried to restart. The Computer didn't save settings but crashed again along the way. I removed all peripheral discs, rebooted and fdisk says it cannot access c: (volume not accessible).

today I had some more crashes and the error code
bad pool caller
0x000000 07

next reboot came up to :
failed to load windows legacy modem driver
error codes 7026 and 7000

(I have no dial up, no other modem, just the 3G Datacard  USB bungle, diver is updated)

and 'failed to load PCLEPCI

what can I do?
