Got the bad_pool_caller screen, how to fix? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I got the bad_pool_caller screen,  I was wondering how I can go about fixing this. Everything seems ok now after it restarted, but I'm guessing it can happen again and obviously don't want that.

  • Hi,

    You could revert to a previous configuration of your PC. Here are steps.

    1. Turn off your PC by pressing and holding the power button, then wait and press it again turn it back on. When you see your PC manufacturer's logo, turn the PC off again. Repeat the process until you see a Please wait message.

    2. On the next screen, select Troubleshoot, then choose Advanced options -> Startup Settings.

    3. Select the Restart button.

    4. When your PC restarts, you can choose how to start. Choose last known good configuration

    5. Make sure that your drivers are current. Select the Start button, then in the search box next to Start, type drivers. In the results list, select Update device drivers. In Device Manager, select Action -> Scan for hardware changes. Restart your PC by selecting the Start button, then select Power  -> Restart.
