    well my XP was giving shutdown problems as it rebooted ... so unchecked the option Windows restart on erorr from the control panel ...


    Now it gives me this error ..


    Some Hardware failed there Windows Shutting down:

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Try disabling bios cacheing and paging options ..


    i think all my hardware is working fine ...
    how do i disable the options ... also will it matter to normal working .... ?

    From within your BIOS.

    BTW, that error message can also be indicative of bad or conflicting drivers (it's always related to some type of hardware issue though), so you might want to also make sure all your drivers are up to date and you might want to check for a BIOS update (actually, I'd do that first).
