  1. Hi

    Can someone make sense of this Mini Dump as WinXP keeps crashing and I am not sure what is causing it.

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
    An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
    interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
    caused by drivers using improper addresses.
    If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 00000028, memory referenced
    Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
    Arg3: 00000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    Arg4: 80515621, address which referenced memory

    Debugging Details:

    As far as I can see ecx,dword ptr [esi+28h] seems to be Firewire?? but I don't know for sure.

    Am I reading the dump wrong?

    Thanks
