When did you last remove the cover to dust it out, give the heatsinks a shot of air and then look to see if the fans and heatsinks are still working.
good morning everyone,
I have a problem with my DELL dimension 1500 PC , I am running windows xp home edition software and 2 things are now happening.my machine crashes regularly and i have to switch power off then restart and re-boot, it always makes a mini dump.one message i have shopwn in the title above and the other one that i get is;BAD_POOL_CALLER.so far I have been lucky and the machine has always re-started okay but i fear the worst will happen. it seems to happen completely at random too.the other thing that happens is that my screen will suddenly and without explanation flicker to BLACK and then after a few seconds it will recover to the screen that i was looking at, no error message when this happens. I have tried evryting in know, trouble shooted, anti virus/spyware checks and all to no avail to fix these 2 problems. anyone out there had similar problems and knows how to fix it please?????
