    My computer bluescreens on shutdown only, probably 75% of the time. The error message is: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. This does not happen on a restart. When I go to shut down, sometimes it does, but usually it just hangs as windows is closing for a couple of minute & then displays a blue screen. I know the error indicates a driver issue, but how can I find out which one? It's done this since I built it. There is nothing in the event log to indicate a problem.
