    I just bought a new computer. My comp doesnt stop making BSOD. The one i get the most often is DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, i get a lot of other error. It reboots when i play games, when i look movies, when i listen music, even when i'm sleeping. I am really pissed off and i want to fix it.


    My comp :
    Athlon XP 2400+
    Asus A7N8X-DX
    1*512mb DDR400
    MSI GeForce4 Ti4200 128Mb
    Onboard sound card
    Western Digital 80G 7200RPM

    i have otheer thing but i dont think it will help.

    It is possibly a driver issue. First if you are comfortable with it update the bios & see how that goes.

    Also if you right click my computer/properties/advanced/startup & recovery/setting. Untick automatic restart. Now you should get a more detailed error message.

    I think there is some compatibility problems with the DDR and that System Board....

    But do you think this will help if i buy a new stick of memory, cause the mobo is Dual DDR?

    I got the same mobo (I seem to have less problems though) When you installed did you use the Asus nForce drivers, or have you used the nVidia drivers. I only ask as if you are actually using the onboard sound then and have the nVidia drivers then you will have problems, as the Asus sound is slightly modified over the normal nVidia intended one.

    Other than that I got no ideas
