Hello everyone !

Well it's the first time I post here, and I have a problem on an XP installation (my english is not very good, I'm french, and sorry about that). The keyboard doesn't work since a couple days, and I saw that XP ask me to install something like a driver (I thought it was a driver, it seems to). So I installed it, my sister used the computer (the XP installation is for her, I use Archlinux), and she had a BSOD, with one error code : 0x0000008E, and written BAD_POOL_HEADER.

Now, at every reboot, we get this screen, and we cannot reboot without the power button.

I think it is beacause of the new driver.

Can you help me ?

Thank you, and have a good night !

Tap F8 repeatedly on startup. If this brings up the advanced boot menu, choose to boot in safe mode. Then use the system restore points to roll back to before you started getting the BSOD.

I did it, but it dosen't bring any menu.

It is not a bad thing, because I had no BSOD anymore.

Thanks you !
