Hey guys!
Months ago I replaced a cpu in my computer with the help of you guys! I had many problems there since my motherboard didn't allow to run the ram in the fastest available option(166hz).
The old post is here.

Recently my computer started (again) to give me a lot of BSOD. the problems vary and most common one is: 0x00000C5 \ 0x000000C2 - BAD_POOL_CALL. I read on the internet that it means that a driver of some kind is trying to access to a memory that does not exist or already in use, or something like that.

I checked the memory with "Windows Memory Diagnostic" cd (I burned specifically for this) and no errors were found. So I am guessing it is not the ram.
I tried removing the video card (voodoo 3 - old, I know :) ) but still the errors appear.

The errors mostly appear when I go online to sites that use flash... I have no idea why.
I tried updating the flash software but that either didn't help to solve the problem.

I formated my computer and right now trying to install windows xp sp2, but everytime I am right about to finish the installation (before the automatic restart) I get another BSOD.
The errors is: 0x00000050 (0xD6FD3000,0x0000000,0x0000000,0x0000000) - PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

When I try to restart the setup again(Restarting the computer) I get another BSOD: 0x0000000A (0xFEFD7000,0x00000002,0x00000000,0x804F6C1E), again and again...

I tried disabling the L1 and L2 Catch but it does not move for about hours. So installation like this is not a possibility...
Does anyone have any idea how to go on from here?!

Thanks a lot guys!
