Hi Markukm

Microsoft reckons that BAD_POOL_CALLER errors could be related to IRQ handling. The best thing would be to try removing any upgrades you have fitted (e.g. new sound card, or new graphics card) since buying the computer and restart the restore process - that way the software will know what to expect when setting back up.

Then once your PC is running again; reinstall the upgrades one at a time until everything is back up again.

Good luck!

P.S. If that doesn't work; it's worth noting you aren't the only Dell user with a similar problem - may be worth calling Dell after reading this:-
