hi,

im really really desperate 2-3 months ago my pc suddenly had some BSOD after working fine for 9 month i checked my ram modules and one of them was damaged so I changed it. But after that i still had some BSOD (IRQ_LESS_OR_EQUAL) I reinstalled my windows and now my computer just freezes and i have to reset it. I even changed my mainboard and i also chaged the slot of my soundcard(IRQ). My pc freezes sometimes after 10 minutes and sometimes after 7-8 hours and always when im surfing the net. I switched off both of my onboard LAN and iam using a wireless usb stick. I can guarantee that its not my cpu i torture it with prime95 and neither my ram test it with memtest. Im really confused because im clueless could it be my HDD
its there a way to monitor my sytem to see why it keeps freezing????

My system:
Athlon 64 X2 3800+(max temp 48C)
Asus A8N-SLI Premium now Asus a8r32-mvp Deluxe
2x512 Crucial Ballstix
Powercolor X850Xt
M-Audio Audiophile 2496
Win XP Pro
Kaspersky Anti Virus 6
1x sata 250GB
2x Ide Hdd

Thanks!!

I don't see your power supply listed. You may be underpowered or have a cheap PSU that doesn't cut it.

380W with your hardware is a bit on the low side even for a good PSU.

This will get you close to the minimum wattage needed. I would add 30%.

You should have sufficient resources to handle running those two aps concurrently.

Do you have dual channel enabled in the bios and if so, is the ram set up to be installed exactly the same way in each channel - not all the ram in one channel?

How big is your page file? It should equal one and a half times the amount of ram as a rule of thumb and do not use any "memory manager" aps as any of those will defeat XP's excellent memory management.

Have you instituted any other "tweaks"? And do you have anything overclocked?

Why did you change your motherboard and the other equipment?
