  1. hi
    i've been getting the dreaded blue screen on a regular basis recently so i decided to completely re format my hard drive (it took 16 hours) I have loaded all safe software and lo and behold the blue screen again this time with the message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT ELSE I CAN POSSIBLY DO?
    ASIDE FROM THROWING IT OUT OF THE WINDOW

    Hi

    If it took 16 hours to set windows up you have a major problem, probably with the hard drive itself.

    A blue screen contains information pertinent to the cause of the fault in the form of a stop message.

    0x0000???? using this we can work out what is the problem.

    Regards
