  1. system:
    mobo: asus p4p800 deluxe
    ati 9800 pro
    p4 2.8ghz
    winxp pro

    my comp recently started to get bsod about 3 times a day. I dont know wat really wrong with my comp but i do think its a hardware problem. i ran memtest+ and the ram seems fine. this is one of the error i get
    Error code 1000007f, parameter1 00000008, parameter2 80042000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.

    sometimes i get IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

    i think i might have something to do with the video card but i cant tell b/c i dont have a spare card to test with my system.

    If you can go to Start>Control Panel>administrative tools> Event viewer, and look in the "System" link. Look for any error signs or warnings. Might say Unexpected shutdown, or even Bugcheck. Post the Event ID and the Source.

    Alright, I did some research for you. I found that there are a lot of different things this could be. The IRQ error your getting comes from a device driver. What new hardware/Driver updates have you performed? Another possible Error I saw was faulty memory. I went to and looked up your exact error code. They state "Either bad Driver, or Memory". If you could post any recent software/driver installs, new hardware ect. Its that or replacement of your memory. Please post responses

    gavinseabrook thx for your help

    I haven't installed anything new recently (hardware or software). It just started goin bsod on me about a week ago. I'll try to run another memtest when i get the chance to see if the memory is at fault.
