not exactly sure of the problem..blue screens

  1. I’m not actually to sure of the problem here…

    Athlon 3000+
    2 x 512 pc 3200 ram (can’t remember exact brand, need to look inside...)
    Asus A7N8X,
    radeon 9600se
    creative Sblive audio

    I recently bought the A7N8X motherboard, to try and resolve some issues I was having, and it all seemed to be going well till I started to work with some graphics apps.
    When I tried to do certain things I’d start getting random reboots, occasionally I’d get blue screens

    IRQL not less or equal errors over the file portcls.sys I think it was
    Kmode exception over win32k.sys
    And recently NTFS.sys

    I read somewhere it could be usb, but I really haven’t a clue…any help would be great.

    90% chance it is a memory issue. Try your memory sticks one at a time to see if one of them is bad.
