Ok, Since I've done a re-install, my computer will often kick out and go to a blue screen. It usually happens when using Utorrent.

Anyone see this before and know what I could do?

I have read what it says on screen, but its not overly helpful.

Any advice will be greatly taken,

Thanks in advance :)

lol@ anyone seen this before.


Stop 0x0000000A or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL


The Stop 0xA message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel interrupt request level (IRQL) that was too high. A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own. This Stop message is typically due to faulty or incompatible hardware or software.


Seeing that you have just reinstalled I suspect a faulty driver.

Have a look in device manager and see if there are any conflicts.

Well i'm using the free version of Avast! so everythings legit, but I never used it before, so it might be causing a problem!

Where can i find device manager?


Will do. Will it just say "conflict" ?



This is how I do it in XP.

Click on Start, then right click my computer.

Click on properties then the hardware tab.

Then click on Device Manager.

You will now see a list of off the diveces install on your PC.

If any have a question mark or any other error then let me know.

This used to happen to me alllllllllllll the time - still does ocasionally.

Does it tend to happen when your running several programmes?
Have you loaded lots of programmes onto your comp?
Did you keep the old files when installing?

If any of the above try ctrl +alt + delete as soon as you switch on the computer

Go to the prcesses tab and take a look down the list. Are there things running that neednt be? Just remove them from the start up list and you'll instantly notice an improvement.

Next one... do you stay on your comp for long periods of time? Do lots of internet searching or have multiple programmes running at once?
I recommend ccleaner
Just run it before or after you've been on the net and it will get rid of cookies, clear out your recycle bin and help your comp go a bit faster.

I had the same problem and had it happen to me every 20 mins or so - I did this and it hasnt happened for weeks

It all looks ok except for a yellow ? where it says other devices. When you drop that menu down theres a yellow ? again with a ! through it and thats for PCI modem. Is that normal?

Just remembers that this happened a while ago at a clients site. Took ages to pin it down but in the end it turned out to be Mcafee's anti virus that was causing a problem.

thanks for that post...

The thing is, ive recently re-installed so the computer's the cleanest its ever been! when I restart I will check the processing running, but I guess it will be minimal.

Do you have a pci modem in your PC? If so then the drivers are not installed correctly.

How did you pin it down? Trial and error?

Well like I said, I recently got Avast! but before hand never used an anti-virus, and never had a problem! go figure!

What exactly is a pci modem. I connect wirelessly to our router.

Right I updated the drivers and the ?! has gone so will now play the waiting game?

It's worth checking your event logs - occasionally you can get more detail to help narrow the problem down although with this sort of issue it tends to be trial and error.

To get to your eventlogs, right click 'My Computer' and choose manage - you'll see the eventlogs near the top.

Usually just a dialup 56k modem - most of my systems are similar to yours in that the driver isn't installed, I have no need for it so I don't bother installing them. I doubt that's causing the issue here.

Pretty much yeah, the dreaded Windows BSOD is something of an enigma. It could be anything from a device driver mismatch to bad memory.

Johnmcl7's right it's well worth checking your event logs, it lists any errors that have occurred. It doesn't always give the most useful information but can sometimes point you in the right direction.

Yup, just wait and see if it happens again. You may never know exactly what the problem is/was.
