Hi, I have a dell 8600 laptop that i re-installed windows xp home on directly from the dell xp installation disc. The disc is in great shape and windows loads up great, the next step was to install the drivers, i printed out the list from dell.com on the proper order to install these, did dsektop system software, chipset, video adaptor, nic, sound, modem, wireless card, pointer.
After installing those drivers and i start windows all seems fine till suddenly within the first 3-4 mins of general setup (changing desktop, putting my computer on desktop , basic stuff) i run into a blue screen of death saying.
irql not less or equal
tells me to disable or remove previously installed software, or disable bios caching or shadowing...
There is a code
0x0000000a 0xf8958014, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x805111e0
I repeated the process 3x now of totally deleting the partition, reformatting, re installing windows then going thru the step by step on installing drivers in proper order via dells instructions, yet each time I run into that blue screen of death....
Has anyone got a suggestion as to what I should do next? I was going to try to disable cashing and or shadowing in the bios but figured before I mess too much here I should start asking what might be the problem or fix.
The laptop is running on a cooling pad all vents clean and clear and is running off the ac power, I did some google checks they talked about overheating and bad memory, altho I never had this bsod till i reinstalled windows here. fashion & modeling forum
The only reason I reinstalled fresh windows was because this was my sisters computer and everything was setup for her, and I wanted a fresh start day one type thing for me here now that I have it.
Thanks for any help or advice here...
