    for the past 6 months ive been getting a blue screen regularly with the "Driver IRQL not less or equal message" for a while ill just restart and everythings back to normal but thrice its not been the case. my computer would jus reach the windows screen and restart again this would go on until i reinstall windows afresh.
    so its happened again and i thot id try u guys before i reinstall again

    i have a fujitsu siemens laptop
    intel centrino processor 1.6GHz
    ram 512

    i dont run any games or any programmes that drain my ram

    on the blue screen i noted the below maybe it maybe of help

    stop: 0x000000DI, 0x00000010, 0x00000002, 0x000000000,0xF84280E4

    Confirm all your drivers are up to date from your Manufacturer's support page
    Try running Memtest on your Ram

    You cannot run it in Safe mode
    It must be run from boot-up (ie no Windows running at all)

    The Memtest CD is a Boot CD
