    Hi!

    I have just recently bought a new computer, with the ASUS GeForce GTS 250 Dark Knight installed on it and am experiencing the BSOD while loading my newly installed games such as Team Fortress 2 and Call of Duty 4.

    I was searching around and my problem mirrors this particular problem diagnosed in this thread: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/669512-solved-irql_not_less_or_equal-when-trying-watch.html

    I have tried to follow the instructions given in the above-mentioned thread but i am unable to uninstall the ASUS enhanced video driver, apparently the cause of the problem, as i can't find any way to delete the driver. Consequently, i removed the NVIDIA drivers from add/remove programs in control panel and installed the latest drivers from www.nvidia.com but i am still experiencing the same problems.

    Here is a log from one of the minidump files:
