Have a look at this site for TroubleShooting STOP messages, and scroll down to the "0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" section.
This provides you with a link to Microsoft's Common Messages page here.
(The page I have given is for your Stop message error).
See if those help.
Something else you can check is your system log through EVENT VIEWER (an admin tool that can also be accessed from the RUN box with eventvwr.exe) to see what it shows. If you locate the event go to this page and research it http://www.eventid.net/search.asp .(Thanks to Edward O'Daniel in these forums for this advice).
WIth all this, hopefully you can narrow down the problem.
