    Hi from Rochester, NY

    We have lots of snow here as well. Are you in Newcastle UK? That's my fav beer, and my mom is from UK, she's from Epson.

    Anyway, good look with your !@@#$ Computer...heh. That's how I refer to mine most of the time.

    Yeah Newcastle England. Actually near the north east coast in North Shields near mouth of river Tyne.

    Have new custom built pc that keeps getting blue screen of death. Trying to not get too stressed.

    Just watched a tv programme that you probably know - Extreme Makeover - Home Edition. About a single parent with multiple sclorosis. Kind of puts things into perspective really.

    May be able to help.

    Had audigy sound card installed. Keep getting blue screen stating "driver irql not less or equal" blah blah blah.

    Done some research - windows vista not happy with certain drivers. Uninstalled driver and downloaded driver from creatives website. Still happened. Completely uninstalled again - now using onboard sound to see if I get same problem.

    If not, I will get a different sound card. Apparently some creative products not that good with vista.

    Any advice most welcome.

    Yeah, it's totally a vista thing. I would research a new card and that direction. I just bought a new cpu and I went with XP pro, I'm waiting to go vista, for a few years.

    Good Luck
