It's very rare, especially considering the amount of work my laptop performs without incident, but I experienced a blue screen event the other night and the code that was displayed said BAD_POOL_HEADER. Everything has worked just fine since then, as it always has after a blue screen event. What does that code mean?

A quick scan on google found this link:
Normally there are other numbers displayed after the message in the blue screen - these are more descriptive than the heading.
Usually windows reports blue screens to the event log, so a quick check of the system/ application log should tell you the whole string. Then a simple search in google should tell you what it means.

Thanks for that info Ed. I guess I'll just Google the codes from now on since Microsoft doesn't seem to have a list with definitions readily available.
