    bad_pool_caller


    My computer was in standby last night and when I woke up it was displaying this. So it turned itself on just to crash. Very microsoft-like.

    But this started last night before that as well. I left my computer for a few minutes to watch TV and when I came back it showed this BSoD. Restarted, did it on boot again. Restarted once more, did it again. Restarted another time, it finally worked.

    What's causing this? And is it a coincidence that it's only happening when I'm not using it, or is that part of the problem?

    We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

    If you are overclocking STOP

    You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

    To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

    The procedure:
    * Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
    * Zip up the copy.
    * Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
    *If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

    To ensure minidumps are enabled:
    * Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
    * Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
    * Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
    * Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
    * Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
    * OK your way out.
    * Reboot if changes have been made.

    Yes, I'm sure.

    Connectify is using your hardware in a new way that is causing the crashes, then.

    Update the driver as shown and you'll be good to go.
