I need help

My computer keeps crashing and going to a blue screen saying, a lot of number in brackets and then DRIVER_IRQ_NOT_EQUAL_OR_LESS. ive checked for driver clashes and they all seem ok. updated the drivers and it still happens.
it only happens when i play games. it is really annoying.

any ideas on what to do will be handy.

I have something similar to that, but i have not figured out the answer. My temporary solution was to stop playing the game. But that is a crappy answer, sorry.

I couldn't find a lot of information on the error, but one recommendation was to run this program:


Apparently, the error occurs due to a problem with memory. If your PC is older, then it may be time for an upgrade.

thanx Shadonyx, I'll give the program a run.
the pc is only a few months old so i hope i don't need the upgrade.

Do you only have the one chip of ram? If you have more than one you could just remove the faulty one for now and your computer would still work...

you all are so lucky im a computer technision lol. The screen you are seeing is called, "The blue screen of death". It is a memory error. Which means when you do things on your computer your computer puts the applications in the memory part of your computer to show what you want opened. Simply go to the store tell the computer technition you need more memory, He will ask you a series of quesitons to get the awnser he needs to find you the right memory stick. Have it installed into your computer and you will not have that problem for a while.

thanx for the adivce wastheone. dont suppose you live in australia and can get me cheap prices.....?

Is your computer still under warranty? If so the company should replace the stick of RAM.
