    Hello friends;

    I have a Dell Studio 1735 laptop running Vista SP2 32-bit, 4GB RAM and intel Core 2 Duo 2.5 GHz CPU.

    My hard drive is almost full so I store video files on a Western Digital external drive and watch them straight off of it using VLC, and I generally out to my HDTV via my HD port. I hadn't been having problems until a few weeks ago, when, upon connecting the tv to my computer, the screen would flash to black for an instant(like it always does to configure the tv) and then flash back to whatever I was doing for a second and then continue flashing back and forth. I used to just take out the cord and blow on the jack and port and occasionally I'd have to reset the laptop or mess around with Mobility Center but it would always end up working. But lately, it keeps flashing the entire time I have the tv plugged in, and it just started having this problem where every time it flashes back to my screen, the cursor is reset in the middle of the screen and i have about 1 second to click things or make tangible progress through menus before it goes black and resets to the middle. It has been doing that for maybe a week and I've still been trying to mess with different settings to get it to work and the last few days it's been resulting in BSoD with the message BAD POOL CALLER. Any suggestions or requests for additional info? Thanks very much in advance.
