    Hey all.. k heres my problem..

    I am doing a few upgrades and buliding few new systems. I took basically everything out of my (working) system and put it into new case with only a case, psu, video card change. Now everytime I try install XP i get the blue screen IRZL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I have tried everything. Switched all components with working etc. The only way i can get it to stop crashing is to disable CPU Internal Cache in the bios. Why is this? i dont know much about cache. But Im pretty sure buy disabling this it will affect performance. And it was all working with the internal cache enabled before hand!!!

    Is it possible (although I was pretty bloody careful) that the CPU got damaged maybe? Wouldn't that kill the processer though?

    I am completely stumped. Any help would be awesome! Incase you want to know heres what its running...

    MSI K7T Turbo2 Motherboard
    Athlon 1.4Ghz (Not XP)
    512MB PC-133
    Seagate 7,200RPM 40Gb HDD
    NVIDIA GeForce 2 MX 32MB

    Liek i said I had all of these components working together in my system before I swapped them!

    ???

    no if your cpu didn't work it wouldn't get past post, but you are clearly getting past that. just set the bios to default settings see if that works for the install then go from there.

    cache is nothing more then a place for information to be stored until it is ready to be used. and yes cache is a very good thing, it stops from other parts in the system from being bored(non technicaly) there is always info to be passed along this way. FYI

    At what point of the installation do you get the error message? How far along?

    friend has a p3 750 that was in a board that was fried by a sound card. now, in a different board, the cpu will post, and show the windows xp loading screen, then gimme a nice shiny blue screen, probably similar to yours, aussie.

    just saying i wouldn't rule out cpu damage... however it happened.

    Yeah... errrr... but, I didn't think heat would cause windows to blue screen. I thought it would just shut off the PC... *shrug* Oh well.
