I do not know for sure if this is a Hardware-Related problem, though I am pretty sure it is.

Hi, I've been having problems with this computer since I have bought it. It has Random crashes with some regularity depending on what I am doing. I also recently brought it in to a shop to get it fixed, and had a stick of RAM exchanged. Anyways here is my problem : Every so often (Especially while playing online games) my computer will do one of three things:
1) It will Crash, displaying A static screen of what was last displayed (be it a game, Internet, etc) and play a repeated loop of the last 1/4 second (approximate guess) of what was being played
2) Display a Static screen consisting of Black bars fading to light gray bars (about 1/2 cm each) playing the repeated sound, OR
3) Give me a BSOD dictating and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL_TO error (with points to a memory problem, I believe. I haven't had one of these since memory was changed)
I believe that this might be a problem with my Network card (D-Link WDA-1320) being incompatible with my other hardware, because the crashes seem to happen when I receive a a data-packet (such as a sound, a rapid movement, death, etc).

Is it possible that I am Correct, that my Network Card is screwed,  or might it just be a bad driver (though i've tried a few already) have a bad Driver? PC Smash

Specs are written bellow my Name,

If you need any more Info feel free to ask for It and I will gladly give you what Info you need.

Thanks in Advance!

Easiest way to troubleshoot this is to
1. Swap out the video card or update driver
2. swap out network card or update driver

What O.S are you using?
