athlon 2500 barton
80 gig WD SATA
The problem started when I replaced the Radeon with a Geforce FX 5200 128mb video card. The computer would freeze when XP would normally be loading up. Sometimes it will hang on a black screen, sometimes it will go to a blue screen that says "BAD-POOL_CALLER".
I have replaced the original card and tried booting from an XP cd. When it says "Boot from CD ..." it just hangs.
When I try to go into safemode it stops on a black screen with a command line that reads "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\windows\syste m32\ntoskrnl.exe"
I have tried different xp disks and also tried a NTLDR Fix boot disk, but I can't get anything to boot. I have reset the bios many times, and my boot sequence is set to CDROM then SCSI\SATA.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
