Thread: Win 2003 Stop Error help

    Hi,

    Hoping someone can help me! We have just installed Windows 2003 Server. Everything was running well until I attempted to connect to the net using the internal ADSL modem. After a few minutes connected it throws up a BAD_POOL_CALLER 0x000000c2 error, and memory dump, which I've identified as a driver of software problem.

    As it happens only when connected via the ADSL modem (it is an internal PCI Efficeint SpeedStream 3060 ADSL modem) I thought the problem may lie with the driver. I was using the driver I downloaded for XP, and it seems the latest driver version is no different. Efficients web site lists Win 2000 and XP as compatible but there is no mention of Server 2003. The modem has it's own connection configuration software thats sets up the ADSL connection, which is suppied with the driver.

    So, am I in the right direction in that this is a problem with the modem driver, or could it be something else entirely? Does anyone know if there are specific Server 2003 drivers for the 3060?

    System specs are: Athlon 2Ghz(ish), 512Mb RAM, Chaintech mbd with onboard sound, nVidia AGP graphics card. No other PCI cards except the modem, the only external devices are a USB mouse, PS2 keyboard and USB Memory Stick reader.

    Thanks in advance
    Dan

    Athlon 2Ghz(ish) ? What does that mean?

    Maybe you don't have a good enough PSU, and it is making windows a bit flaky?

    Around 2Ghz (Ghz is the speed at which a processor runs;) )

    Who is your ISP?

    PSU is a generic 500w model.

    My ISP is BT Openworld (UK) on their standard Home 500 service. Worked fine for over a year running on Windows XP.

    I take it you found this?
    Try downloading updated drivers for your mobo and modem (again). You could also try rolling back the driver and using the built-in Server 2003 ones. It seems most likely that this is a driver probelm since you just installed. If all else fails, I would suggest not using S2K3. Apache, IIS, Abyss, just about anything on practiacally any OS are just as good (if not better), and are free (well, IIS comes with XP). If you can't get this fixed and have to use S2K3, I guess you could get an external modem that claims to be compatible with S2K3.

    I know what MHz, and Ghz are.. I was wondering .. if you had a definate clock speed.. I understood you saying 2Ghz(ish) as "I'm currently overclocking" or similar.

    gee you guys are funny...

    DanHarris, you have a problem with your driver. You either need to find a specific driver for sever 2k3 or a generic driver that gets you basic functionality.

    what difference does it make? he's got a problem, with one particular piece of hardware, so let's focus on that. It dosen't make the slightest bit of difference what he does with the OS. For all i care, he could be using it to play pong or hosting a porn site.
