    I had Windows 7 (upgrade) installed I started seeing blue screen errors "irql not less or equal" they became very frequent. As best as I could figure, there may have been a hardware conflict with Windows 7. I went back and installed Windows XP. At the very end of the install, I saw a blue screen error (I tried several times and got the same error) page fault in nonpaged area.... 0x00000050. I tried doing a restore using my image that I saved, but it is telling me that it is not recognizing one of the discs. Any ideas what could be wrong? I am trying to install windows 7. Hopefully since I almost completed the setup, it will allow the install.

    Ok, as I am trying to install Windows XP all the way through from the start I left it formatting and come back and see a System Service Exception Blue Screen.

    I cannot say for sure yet, but it appears that I either have a bad crossfire cable or a bad visiontech radeon 5670 video card. I uninstalled 1 of the cards and so far got xp to install withou issue and Windows 7 is being upgraded and is almost done. I will run it for a bit with 1 card, then install the other card as an "upgrade" and see if I have any issues. I suppose it is possible something may have been missed in the settings of dual video cards. If I verify it is set up corectly and see an issue, then I will exchange the card. If I do not reply, the card or a setting was te issue.
