when i'm working in win XP, the computer goes in blue screen that says :

Technical Information: 0x000008 (.... )
LIRQ Not Less or Equal
sometimes says that the Atapi.sys is causing the problem i recovered and setup windows Xp several times and updated the drivers. i use Windows XP Media Center with SP2.
the casing is clean and there's no dust in it. i replace the Ram and the other PC is working fine.
what may be the problem?

three possibilities:

Haxdoor virus on the hard drive

smart failure/failing hard drive

controller failure
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently

Do you have the full error message?
Atapi.sys is your CD drive.
