    Welcome to the forums. :)

    Your error is 0x0A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    This is a very common one and is typically due to a bad driver, or faulty or incompatible hardware or software. Technically, this error condition means that a kernel-mode process or driver tried to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) that was too high. (A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own.)

    In other words, a driver is trying to access something it doesn't have a right to and so your system crashes. What that driver is at this moment we have no clue.

    Go to your Event Viewer because that often has valuable information and post it here if you need to.

    Meanwhile update your sound and video card drivers.
