    LOL, so I was playing Crysis and was trying to compare DX10 Max with DX9 MAX and while I went to exit out of DX10 by clicking on the quite to menu button, my computer frezzes and I get this Red Screen of death that says "Bad Pool Caller". What the Fudge does that mean?
    Might I add that I just updated windows vista to some new Compatibility and reliability patch. Anyways has anyone ever had this and what does it mean?

    Hmmm, weird. I've never seen a RSOD. But anyway, the Bad Pool Caller can be just about anything, hardware or software related. Have you looked in the System Event Logs to see if there are errors.

    Could be as simple as a bad ethernet cable or a bad/conflicting driver or kernal.
    Probably a conflict between DX9 and DX10. Could be GPU drivers not cleaned properly before re-install. Could be DX not removed properly before changing to other version.

    Yep, pretty much.


    That's why we need to know what the event logs say.

    Hmmm, doesn't give as much info as the XP version. Is there an application specific log?

    I do see a small possible clue in there. Windows Desktop Manager relies on the gfx drivers. Could be gfx driver related.

    Yeah thats a really good find, but I still don't know why it happend. Its all good man, as long as it dosn't keep happening then I'm not complaining, besides I was tweaking Ram Timings and trying to find my CPU and GPU's Max Overclock, so it was bound to happen. Thanks for the info and if anyone ever finds out what that error means or does let me know :)
