    I get either a BSOD with IRQ_not less etc. message or I get a complete lock everyone time I play a flash or cd/dvd game.

    log shows category 102 event 1003 each time

    attaching mini dumps.

    system athlon 64 3400+ 2.39 ghz
    2 GB Ram
    Windows XP media center SP2
    Linksys wireless G USB adapter
    Soundblaster audigy 4
    nvidia geforce 9400GT

    I have switched video cards, tried removing soundblaster (physically), swapped ram chips with no success.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    Is your onboard video adapter disabled? If not try disabling the onboard video adapter. Reboot and see what happens.

    Of your three minidumps the most decisive is the one that cites the Creative OS Services (WDM) driver ctoss2k.sys as the cause of your crashes.
