I just built a computer, and I hvaen't done anything wrong(or atleast I don't think I did). But, its not very stable. I mean its fast and it works, but I might install a piece of software, and then all the sudden, a blue screen comes up(i thought they took this out of xp, but apparently they didn't) and says either irql isnt less or equal, and then says the problem is the driver; or it will say something is up, and then it will say: DUMPING PHYSICAL MEMORY. Now, this is kinda freaking me out, and so if anyone knows how to fix this, it would be greatly appreciated. Below are the specs for my comp.:

Gigabyte GA-8KNXP
P4 2.6Ghz w/HT
2x Maxtor 80Gb Hds 7200RPM w/8MB cache-These are in a SATA Raid 0 setup using the Silicon Images 3112r chip(included on the mobo)
2x 512MB Corsair XMS Memory(PC3200)
I have Win XP Pro w/sp1 and the roll up

If you have any ideas what the problem is, please, feel free to post them!

  1. well which component is the bluescreen refering to, do you know.

    does it say its the video card driver or sound driver or USB dirver etc...

    usually it will refer to one of the drivers which may be wrong such as in my case the video drivers.

    i installed windows again 7 times before getting the right driver combo, default drivers for my vid card, manfacture drivers for it, and nvidia drivers for it.

    first thing to do is go on the net and download all the latest drivers for your Mobo, and Vidcard.

    if this doesn't help then it is obviously more seious than that.
