okay tech superstars, I've read a few related posts but still not sure what's up with this. I am running Windows 2000 Professional and this is the message that displays with the "blue screen of death":

STOP: 0x00000001 (0xE3018040, 0X000000FF, OX00000001,OXBEA61DB9)
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

xxx ADDRESS BEA61DB9 BASE AT BEA5D000, DATESTAMP 3ecD5361 - mrxsmb.sys

Beginning Dump of Physical Memory


I only seem to get this message when online (I suppose IRQL is some internet relay thing i don't understand) and it references this specific file (mrxsmb.sys) always. I've downloaded all the latest security patches, Service packs, etc. from Microsoft.

Curiously enough, this problem only started happening when I purchase a new Shuttle AK32A motherboard. I had bought new RAM as well and I though it was defective but it turns out it wasn't. Thanks for any help or advice.

This is almost always a bad or corrupted driver, so I'd start with any newly installed hardware...

Hey, I get this message also, but the driver mentioned is almost always a windows virtual driver, like netbios.vxd or ntldr.sys...

this is very bugging, and has been increasing in frequency all the time.

i also hear a little crackle in my speakers when this happens
Help!
