  1. Dear all,

    I am running win xp on p iv 2.4 ghz pc. Since last month, when i shut down the pc i get a blue screen (in the end after closing network connections and message windows is shutting down) with message

    INVALID_WORK_QUEUE ---> this message came for few days and after this message stopped coming the following message started getting displayed

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    The PC is otherwise running OK without any problems

    Can somebody guide me why this error is coming and how to remove it ?

    thanks in advance

    Most likely a bad driver. Check the Event Viewer in Administrative Tools.

    Well, i could not make head or tail of the things i saw in events viewer as suggested. I am however attaching zip file containing system and application listing dumps.

    May be you can suggest which driver is causing problem ?
