« on: January 15, 2005, 02:45:58 PM »

Operating System Version: Windows Xp (Service Pack 2)
Problem Application Name & Version: Any game or heavily resource dependent application
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Not sure
Error Messages:I often get a blue error screen when I play games like Unreal tournament 2003, sometimes it just completely locks up and freezes, I notice this happens most often when I am playing a video game or when something made with flash is being viewed, the blue error screen usually states somethin like this "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"
I can't seem to figure it out, but this is my hardware configuration:
Pentium 4 2.6 ghz
128mb ATI Radeon 9600se
512mb of p2700 RAM

IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL was only common sense in Windows NT, so I think you mean IRQL_NOT_EQUAL_OR_LESS.

If that's the case, then look on this page for clues.

Which Catalyst version are you running for your videocard? And how do you normally change your Catalysts, if ever? I mean, do you uninstall the prior one, then after a reboot install the new one, or do you just install it over the old one?
