Right, I am new to these forums and I hope that you can help me with a problem that I have. I am using a laptop running Windows XP Home edition, and just lately I have been getting 'Blue screens of Death' at random points, various critical errors (now no longer appearing) and my system has been running at an incredibly slow pace, it takes an hour to fully load up. This is very unusual. The blue screens display the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL message. Looking forward to any help that you can give me as I am not sure where to start.
