Pls can you help me? :) 
When I exit or open several games, suddenly appears a blue screen that IRQL not less or equal. :o 
Then I have to wait for dumping memory to disk for 15 mn .
There is some instructions on the blue screen but I prefer to check with people who know better than me. Actually I don't know about computer but a little.
This is the the info on the blue screen I got many times.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Then it tells that if he appears more than 1 time to follow these steps, ie to check if any hardware or software is properly installed (I’ve just installed few software like games)
If problems continue - apart removing any new installed software- it tells to disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. (I don’t know how to make this). BTW if I remove some software recently installed can I reinstall them later? I mean I hope didn’t buy them in vain.
Then at last there is technical info:
STOP: 0x0000000A (0x000004F4, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x806E4A16).

And the beginning dump of physical memory to disk .

Pls help me because I feel it's not good news for my kompie (a windows message appears after it restarts with "serious error" It's a new computer. :( 
Is it a memory, PSU, driver, etc or else problem?
Thanks

have you recently installed any new drivers for your graphics card? iahd this issue with a modified graphics card driver. uninstalling it and installing the standard one resolved it.

* Release: Production Version
* Version: 6.3.0.1007
* Target Chipset#: Intel(R) E8500
* Date: November 24, 2004

Secondly is there an update for ISAPNP Read Data Port driver ( currently I have 5.1.2600.2180 DATE 7/1/2001)?
thanks
