Unable To Boot/reinstall Windows After New Monitor....

By halt_jim ·
Today I received a new Acer AL2015W LCD Monitor, and I plugged everything in and it booted Windows just fine...it asked me what type of resolution I wanted and (being the noob that I am) I wasn't sure, and one of the options was preview...so I chose that...when it changed it to one of the resolutions my screen went blank...

Oh and something I just remembered is that when I was previewing the different types of resolution it said it was for HD....I don't know if that help but its just something that i remembered...

So I shutdown my computer manually...and attempted to restart...it got past the first few screen but it would not get to the windows screen...and I also didn't here the windows startup chime...

So I attempted to start it up in safe mode and it would get stuck on this page...

As a last resort I attempted to reinstall windows...and when I got past the agreement page or the page that you have to push F8 I got a blue screen error...

This error said...

Bad_pool_caller

and the numbers it gave were...

0x000000c2
(0x00000043 0xc2554000 0x00000000 0x00000000)

I have tried removing the sound card, taking out one stick of ram, reseting the bios, placing the video card in the other pci slot, and still no luck...

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

and here are some replies I have received on other forums...

Re: Unable To Boot/reinstall Windows

Have you access to another computer?, if yes (well in your case you have to) then download "ubuntu" software and burn this to a cd/dvd disc then loadup this disc to your computer (it will load onto your ram first) when you see the ubuntu desktop look for "insatll" icon click on this and follow all the on board questions, when this has finished put in your windows cd/dvd disk operating system. You should be able to load on you windows software. Please post back if you have anymore problems or questions.

Connect with your old monitor if possible as before it was working fine, right?

Press F8 try selecting VGA mode and last known good configuration option]

In case all fails connect hard drive to some other system and rename windows folders

try installing XP again..

Good Luck..!
