awbassett1 Posted December 28, 2004 Share Posted December 28, 2004 I recently purchased a new machine along with some corsair memory. Specs: Asus A7V880 Athlon 3200 Corsair VS512MB400 (1 GB Kit) Lot# - 0439039-0 Geforce 6800 I was having some blue screens when using Windows XP, relating to a "Bad_Pool_Caller" error, Check that out here Microsoft.com If the machine wasn't blue screening, it would freeze and reboot, or just freeze all together in the middle of doing something. I stripped my machine down to its barebones to avoid any hardware conflicts, and tried the video driver straight from nVidia, along with the one coming from the vendor. I purchased a larger Power Supply (550W). I rebuilt my machine with a fresh copy of Windows XP, and the problem still persisted. I ran Memtest86 with the memory modules in alone, in slots 1 and 2, and in slots 1 and 3 all coming back with a bunch of error messages each time. I decided to install Linux to see if it was a windows driver related issue, but linux will freeze, and/or run very unstable. I checked out the compatibility listing for my motherboard before purchasing, and this memory was listed as being compatible. Did this just come from a bad batch or am I missing anything?
