My computer recently has been giving me BSODs and the message of each was "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" or something close to it. What's going on, and what can I do to prevent it from happening again?

Difficult error to troubleshoot, as you will see: http://kadaitcha.cx/stop_err.html#0x0000000A and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314063 will get you started thinking.

Are you doing anything in particular when you get the BSOD or does it happen randomly?

Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Look for any "! " or "X" symbols.

It's somewhat random; the latest happened in the middle of a War Rock match (MMOFPS). It might be that my comp is being overwhelmed with the graphics or something.

Try reinstalling your graphics driver, as driver problems are one of the biggest causes of BSODs.
