hi all. i bought a new wd 250gb hd and a xfi xtrememusic and put them in my computer and i used my xp pro sp2 disc and installed windows and everything was fine. then a day later i would get these random bsod's. they happened often and for no reason. so i used my other copy of xp pro, but it doesnt have any service packs so my hd was only 130 gb. but everything worked great and no bsod's (to my knowledge). this os was installed shortly on my system when i remembered that you need sp2 to have more than 130 gb of space. so once again installed my xp pro sp2 and i was getting random bsod's again . so windows never recognized the problem. i dont know why it couldnt but it didnt. one time it did say something about a bad_pool_header/call or something like that. so i assumed it was my video card( since bsod's are usually video card problems). i returned my 7900gt (evga) and got a new one. i installed it today and i am still getting those bsod's. i think it might be my xp pro sp2 disc that is causing the problem. but im not sure and i need your help please.
