    Trying out my new netbook, asus 1201n, and want to tether my droid to it. I know that the problem is not on my phone end, as my dads laptop works fine.

    However when I try it on mine, I get a blue screen with the top saying "bad pool header" something, but it reboots to fast to see the rest.

    Anybody know why I am having problems or if there is a setting that I need to change?

    Thanks

    You will probably have better luck on computer forums.

    I agree that the computer forums would be better. My best thought as a computer geek is that the processor may not be supported. I didn't look it up but that may be an atom processor and not sure its compatible.

    A pool header issue is a problem with Windows memory allocation. Device driver issues are probably the most common, but this can have diverse causes including bad sectors or other disk write issues, and problems with some routers. (By theory, RAM problems would be suspect for memory pool issues)
