Angry Irql_not_less_or_equal

What is this mess, I have followed microsofts links but have not had any luck. I get this when I am loading winxp right after I put in the cd key and it accepts the # then Bam blue screen of death with this warning. HELLP!!!!!!!

Sounds like an irq conflict of some sort. What you need to do is uninstall all pci cards, sound cards, modems, etc and try from there. The less devices you have, the better.

take out all the hardware that your system doesn't need to run (so everything except motherboard, CPU, video card and at least 1 RAM disk) then see if this happens again

Try what apokalipse said. It mostly works.

Also do a memtest with memtes86+

Default I experienced this problem myself...

however mine was a hardware issue. I was trying to use Registered Memory, when the board only supported Unbuffered. Verify your memory type is supported by your Mobo manufacturer.
