After I posted I removed some programs and needed to do a restart; I got the BSOD again. This time the message was "an attempt was made to write to read only memory."
I've been getting the blue screen of death lately, maybe once a week on start-up. OS is Windows XP.
Looking at event viewer for this a.m. I have the above message under the system tab.
The blue screen message is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL the word "driver" was not before IRQL
I have written down the technical codes from the bottom of the message if that's of any help...it's certainly beyond my grasp.
The only hardware we've installed lately has been WiFi (is that hardware?) last fall and a sound system after Christmas. The BSOD has been popping up for the last couple of months.
Can you help me fix this problem?
