Have a look here and see if it helps:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=317326

could also have to do with:
http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...Windows/XP/all/reskit/en-us/prmd_stp_ottj.asp

This error can occur when you transfer large files such as photo and videos over a USB connection to your computer. XP does not allocate enough resources for the large file transfers. To prevent this error from occurring, you’ll need to download the XP Service Pack 1 at www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/servicepacks/sp1/default.asp

Another source of IRQ errors has to do with interrupts wrt your graphics card and pci devices like sound cards.

If you have an AGP card and a sound card in there, or perhaps some other pci device, you might want to move the pci devices into some of the other slots and see if it eliminates the error for you.

Bad power supply can cause this error as well but most times I have seen it has been related to bad memory.

I've had this problem when I had Fast Writes enabled in BIOS for my AGP graphics card, could be worth a look?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
