Ialmnt5.sys and ialmdev5.DLL Bluescreen Error

  1. Hi I was playing spore, just bought it, and i had been playing it for about 2-3 hours when it suddenly crashed and gave me a blue screen and gave me the error ialmnt5.sys page_fault_in_nonpaged_area, i didn't know what this meant so i just restarted and looked it up. i didn't really understand what it meant but i read somewhere it could be a driver problem, since i previously had a 7600gt (don't any more just stock chip) i thought maybe there were some drivers still on the computer that were messing with it while i played so i did a driver clean. Before i had done that Spore would open and crash before i even got to the menu. Now it opened and let me play for about 10 minutes before it crashed a second time and gave me the blue screen error ialmdev5.DLL with the same nonpaged_area thing. I tried to update my integrated chip but it wouldn't let me, i know its not a good system but i know it can run it, it wasn't having any problems worded perfectly with no lag. I have a Dell Dimension DIMM 4700 the only part of the computer that is still a dell component is the motherboard, i bought new RAM 1.75 gigs of it (strange number i know) a new 320gig hard drive new P4 3.2 Ghz processor and new X-fi sound card and a new power supply(getting new 8800GTS 512MB soon :D. I should say i recently updated the BIOS after a really long time of not having it updated, the same day it crashed, i'm not sure if this is the reason but i thought i'd mention it because it is a strange coincidence.

    heres my DXdiag not sure if it will help but thought i'd throw it in there

    ill post it in second post.
