bad_pool_caller error?

Hi! I'm pretty computer dumb when it comes to these screens. First blue screen I've had in four years! That's a record! :D So anyways, my computer did a forced reboot and I heard a really loud grinding noise from my harddrive.

By googling around I see that it relates to the minidump somehow?

I'm kind of afraid to do anything now on my computer and at this time with medical issues I really cannot afford to buy a new one.

Operating System: Windows 7 32-bit;

Ram: 4 gb 3 usuable (the guy that installed windows 7 chose 32 not 64 ><)

Morning Ashkir!

Sorry to hear about the problems you are having, as I myself have had occasions to experience some similar issues. Until one or more of our forum experts here can review your post and offer more detailed info, may I ask if you

would be so kind as to please provide the following information (shown beside the "numbered" lines further down this page), which should help make it easier for our distinguished moderators and many other very knowledgeable members here to assist you?

Please note that my suggestions here should NOT be construed to be of an EXPERT nature!

NOTE: The easiest way to obtain your computer system information is by downloading and running the Speccy program, from the following site: http://piriform.com. (This program will provide you with all the "specifics" about your computer system, hard drives, peripherals, motherboard, internal temperature, etc. (The Speccy program, as well as, all 3 of the other Piriform products offered are free to download. They do offer a "paid" support service (which you can decline) and accept donations to help support their development work). Donations are not required, however.

1. Your computer make and model; when your first obtained it.

2. The manufacturer's name of your hard drive, and its status.

Many hard drive manufacturers may also provide a utility program for use in testing your hard drive for problems. Such utility programs can usually be found on the hard drive manufacturer's website. Other suggestions I would offer include, defragmenting your hard drive, running the CCleaner program...also downloadable from the Piriform website link shown above.

That loud, grinding noise you mentioned hearing from your hard drive is somewhat disconcerting though. (The only reference to such a noise I personally have ever hear of is when a hard drive is beginning to malfunction). But, again...there are many, much more experienced, experts here on the community forum site than I, who can provide you with far more detailed, useful information than I,

Best Regards!

You have two options:

1. Download the driver from Toshiba's web site based on the model of you laptop.

2. Download the driver from the vendor of the wireless card (e.g. Intel, Atheros, Broadcom, etc).
