"IRQL less than equal to"

Or something along those lines... does anybody know what might be the problem?

It does, but seems to be crashing quite regularly when on the internet. Then also when using windows media player today as well.. But its very weird, cuz it runs for a champ for good periods of time , then all of a sudden, locks up, or crashes and I get the ole "blue screen".

Try reseating your ram and video card. This solved my IRQL BSOD.

First and formost,

Antivirus and antispyware scan.

Do this at least 2-3 times until you are most certainly assured the machine is clean. More times then not you have a maleware attempting to take control of an application that is causing the BSD.

Next, check with www.windowsupdate.com to make sure you have the most recent drivers for your machine.

Next, check Video, Sound, and peripheral drivers to make sure you are up to date on those.

Next, check out what processes you have running on your machine to see if anything looks out of the ordinary. Start killing off non essential processes.

After each one of these make sure to note the way your system is acting so you can try and replicate what you are doing right before it crashes. Also try and MAKE it crash. Once you can duplicate the crash process you can more easily fix it.

Ok, i reseated the video card and the ram. Still crashing. Last two were right in a row. I was trying to play Call of Duty 2 and it only let me play for a minute , 2 tops. Then it locked up the first time. The 2nd time COD2 shut down and it said COD2 has encountered an error.

Thought? Video Card issue?
