STOP 0x000000D1

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Ok, I'm lost, computer is a dell dimension 2350, just started having this issue, its sporatic, happens on startup sometimes, or when i click on random programs, etc

I'm currently running memtest on the machine to eliminate the memory from the list...its a 128mb dimm. Shouldn't be bad, factory one from dell.

HELP

STOP 0x000000D1 generally occurs because of bad drivers...you can try either updating or reinstalling your drivers, or if you recently updated a specific driver you should roll it back

gaara is correct. boot into safe mode (press F8 just before Windows loads) and install different drivers for anything you might have updated
