IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

STOP: 0x0000000A (0x00000016, 0x0000001C, 0x00000000, 0x804E1745)

I decided to search this on google before i went any further. I got a bunch of forums saying it was either hardware issues or software issues. I updated all of my drivers, it was still giving me the blue screen. I made sure it wasn't my ram causing the problem. Then I checked my video card. I uninstalled its drivers, then removed the card from my computer. I went to my onboard card and installed its drivers. This time when i would open a game, instead of getting the blue screen, i got a black screen, then the computer restarted.

My Computer Specs are:

ASUS P5L-VM 1394
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2Ghz
Kingston 2GB
Geforce 8500GT
160GB Hard Drive.


If someone could please help me out, that would be great.
Thanks

Take it back and tell them to fix it, that error is usually faulty memory

To run in dual channel mode, they both need to be in the yellow slots.

Which one did you get for Xmas?? sounds like the module is faulty, run memtest86+ on it, make sure it is the only stick in the pc at the time.

Add ram, I missed where he said he added a stick, my bad,

It shouldn't void the warranty as he could remove it before returning to the vendor and no one would be the wiser.

Anyways, about the parts, they are all custom, so it would not void the warranty. And about the ram, I will buy another 1GB kingston stick of ram, and get back to you

So true, I would have to search for PDP Systems memory as I've never heard of it before, might do that when I get a spare minute.

I doubt the Kingston is faulty but you never know, the upside of that if it is the Kingston is lifetime warranty, dunno about the other stuff though.

Have you tried memtest, or drivers yet?

Because this is usually a driver thing. Nvidia cards with bad drivers do that lot. Google it, then update drivers.
