Thumbs down Irql_not_less_or_equal

Ok, so I get that error message in a big blue screen and an automatic restart whenever I play games. Any thoughts?

the game is stealing attention of ur cpu from the other system processes. solve it by either lowering the settings in ur game to create less stress, or get a btr cpu. im pretty sure that thats wat that error msg means.

I used to get that all the time on 2 of my computers. Mostly in games, but sometimes in normal windows. I stopped getting that when i uninstalled the D-link wireless cards on both computers. Based on that i'm going to ask if you use wireless.

Before this gets moved, why is this in the security section?
