  1. Hey guys, I recently had this problem with my PC while playing computer games. I really don't know how to get rid of it. I usually play these games a long time ago but ever since I reinstall Last xp on my computer I keep getting this blue screen over and over again. Could help me please?

    We need a lot more information in order for us to help you.

    What error codes does the Blue Screen show when it comes up, for example:
    0x0000007F: UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP and sometimes it will list a driver as a possible cause like dne2000.sys

    Does this occur randomly or only when you play games?

    0xD1 errors are caused by either faulty drivers or buggy software. Is there anything particular that you are doing that causes this Blue Screen to happen, i.e. such as gaming, or is it random?

    I had something that said: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    No, this blue screen appares within the first 10 seconds after I start playing the game. I have Max Payne 2 and Grand Theft Auto San Andreas cureently installed on my PC and these are the only two games that this blue screen appares with.

    * Try updating your video card drivers.
