Possible IRQ conflict

Over the last couple of weeks I've had problems with my pc rebooting. I'm using XP SP2 and recently an online game that I play has had an update. This was when my problems began. I've updated my video drivers with the latest I could find from manufacturers website, restored to an earlier point but still no good. I've contacted the game support, who said that it was my on board sound, so diabled it and installed an add-in pci card. Still got problem, I've now unistalled add-in card and stopped it rebooting so that I get a blue screen which says the following

IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

with

STOP 0x000000A (0x000000016,0x00000002,0x00000000,0x804E4C2A)

What could this be?

have you upgraded memory?

Possibly your graphics card driver.

Suggest you try restarting in safe mode with standard VGA driver and see if that works - is it does come back.

Are you using Norton AV - as this can cause an identical error in certain circumstances.
