It could be a memory or device driver problem.
Have you checked Windows update to make sure all your drivers are up to date.

Have you made a note of exactly what these msgs are and called Dell Tech Help?

IRQ are interupt requests. The IRQ is a number set in the computer for the interrupt request. The interrupt request is assigned to devices to allow it to "interrupt", or send a signal, to the computer when it is finished processing. In older computers, you had to manually set the IRQ values for devices. Newer computers and operating systems use plug'n'play, which allows you to not need to set IRQ values.
