    For the past few days when iv started my computer i keep getting this message...

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to you computer.

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    If this is the first time you've seen this error screen restart your computer.
    If this screen appears again follow these steps:

    Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

    If problems continue disable or remove any ne installed hardware or software.
    Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing

    Im new to XP and only had it installed for a few weeks and its been fine up untill the last few days :mad:


    I dont know what it can be cos i havnt installed anything new.. Apart from the odd bit of software but nothing that could **** it up..

    But when i do restart it usually starts up but sometimes locks up with a message about dumping :confused: :confused: ..


    If you could help it would be a life saver as im on the brink of making my size 10 come into contact with little old PC :mad: :mad: :mad:



    Cheers..

    Not that i know of but it also says this "it might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner"


    I recently installed norton antivirus... Could it be that?
