Re: Computer freezing IRQL BSOD, help please!
Hey so I recieved my new 40gb hd in the mail today. I unplugged my 160gb and set it to slave & plugged in the new hd and set it to master. Then I booted my comp up and went into the BIOS and set it to boot off CD first. After doing that I put in the Windows CD and booted to it and started to install it but I didn't make it very far because after I pressed F8 to agree to the TOS shortly after the computer shutdown and refused to power on again. There is power to the mobo, the mobo power light is on and the POST lights up. Also it did the same thing the first time I went into the BIOS but after I unplugged the power cable and flipped the power switch to off I replugged the cable and flipped the switch back to on and it came on but then shut down during Windows install. Any idea what could be causing this to happen? Thanks for your help.
