Today after having the comcast guy come and set up my cable internet and television, I started having this BAD_POOL_CALLER BSoD. I read in a forum it may be related to my RAM, a google search suggested faulty drivers. However, i havent, to my knowledge, installed any drivers today. Anyone have experience with this error or any advice? Thanks.

you didn't blame the comcast guy hahaha

are you using USB connection to the modem or ethernet ??
BAD_POOLER_CALL usually is associated to memory though in my experience

If you have 2 chips, pull one out, test it.
Same problem :
put that one back in, pull out other etc...

good luck

I am not using a usb connection, ethernet cable directly to cable modem. I have 4 chips :p, but i guess i will have to take out 2 :(. I will get back to you on how that works. Thanks.

Hey thanks a lot guys. As it turns out, the system crashes were caused by interference between a bit torrent client, azureus, and my nvidia nForce network manager software. After i uninstalled the nvidia network adapter, my computer stopped crashing. Strangely, prior to yesterday, i used to use the both in conjunction, after yesterday, my computer began to crash.....maybe i should blame it on the comcast guy.
