I am not very smart with computers and I don't really know much about them, so if anyone requires any info please kindly tell me how to give you that info. My desktop is running windows XP professional and is pretty old. Lately for a while now, my computer tends to crash suddenly a couple minutes after starting up. Sometimes it crashes after 5 to 10 minutes, and then when I turn on the computer, it will just stand at a black screen and I am have to force shutdown by holding the power button. The crashes sometimes give me a BSOD, but the BSOD's are different almost every time. I may get Page_fault_in_Non_Paged_area, Irql_not_less_or_equal, driver_Irql_not_less_or_equal, and sometimes it may show some .sys files such as atapi.sys and etc. And sometimes it decides to crash during the startup. Also, after my computer crashes...lets say.... 7~15 times, it will then stop and I can use the computer normally.
