I've been working on getting my AMD 3000+ 400FSB comp to work right for awhile now. Before I thought the Cpu cooler was the problem, but then reading another thread I found out that may not be the case. So I followed some of the instructions I've found on there and I get a bad pool caller blue screen error. I have no idea how to fix this and it seems I'm not the only one having problems with this. I don't know if the Athlon XP is just not designed to run at 400FSB (I have no prob downgrading to 333FSB) but I loose too much CPU power doing that. I've just checked the CPU temp and just running idle in the bios it's running at 56C so I guess I was right in the first place and the highend XP's need superior cooling than AMD gives you. But if (besides needs better cooling) you have anyother suggestions please let me know.

I got the CPU down to running at about 50 degrees (two case fans weren't working) it's still running too hot, but it's down some and the comp is still coming up with blue screen errors whenever a game is started.

I have the same problem.
My portable computer is an Intel Celeron M with 256MB DDR sodimm.
When I boot my pc with a pcmcia card inserted or an usb drive, etc., windows xp gives me the same blue screen with "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and, in bottom, the file ndis.sys
Note those peripheral are good: if I insert that pcmcia or that pendrive or what other, no error messages are shown.

Now, in that case, when I connect the pc to the electrical line, that blue screen is shown.. i have to reboot the system and it shows Bad_pool_caller....

what is it? I read about ram problems, is it? And then, why the message appears when i connect the pc to the electricity since my battery is down?

Thanks to who will answer

I get the same errors.. I built 3 computers in the last month and only 1 of them has this error. The one i'm using nearly has the same components as one of the others i built, and that one is doing fine.

So far i've been getting BAD_POOL_CALLER and DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL errors.. These only seem to appear when i'm playing a game, so it's most likely a video issue.

Before you even ask if i've tested my RAM, i have... I've tested it back and forward several times with no errors coming up. I've read some support pages on other sites like 'faulty device driver' so i hope there are updates out there to get (that resolve this problem) for video cards.

I just updated drivers for my Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 at the Nvidia website, but for some reason it slows performance on games. Hopefully this will solve my (BSOD) issues, but now i have another problem to look into

Do not make the error in thinking all xp 3000+ cpu's are to run at 400fsb, there are 2 types thoughbred and barton, one runs at 333fsb and the other at 400fsb. I would run the cpu at 333fsb and see what happens, also I would get your cpu ID and find out what type you have. Also you have to check your memory, it has to be able to match you cpu's fsb, so if you are running pc 2700 it will have to run at 333fsb or many probs will occur.
