    Hello everyone,
    I just signed on as a new member of this forum and have seen great support. I have re-installed my winXP twice now and have been getting BSOD's. They are usually the Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_or-Equal or a kernel issue. I have updated all of my video and sound drivers, checked my memory for issues, PS is good. I have attached my mini dumps so you can see what I am seeing. I also have a BSOD viewer installed if that will help you.

    Can anyone please take a look at my dump files? Sorry to keep posting, but I do not want this thread to fall off the way side.

    Memory corruption.
    nv4 mini.sys
    avgtray.exe
    USBPORT.SYS

    Memory corruption.
    Have you run a memory Test?

    nv4 mini.sys
    Video Driver faulty.

    All the things that you say you have checked!

    avgtray.exe
    Linked to Avg Anti-virus.
    Uninstall - reinstall may solve that one.

    USBPORT.SYS

    I did an 8 hr memtest on both sticks of memory. No faults there. I have also re-installed my Nvidia drivers. Have not seen BSOD's on those since then. Have not tried to re-install AVG anti-virus yet. Thanks for the USB info. I'll try that one too later today.

    OK, re-installed AVG. I had originally installed the trial version not the free version. I have now installed the free version of AVG. I had a BSOD last night while on Youtube. I was watching a game trailer and then it cut to blue screen with some looping sound from the trailer still going on. I'm not at home to upload the error right now. Will do so later. I was going to re-install my drivers again for the video card, but driver sweeper would not run do to a net4.0 issue. Have to find out what that is tonight also.

    Oh well...It seems that my video card is the main issue here. Kept trying to test direct 3d and it kept Bsod. When I installed my old card I still had, no issues arose. Tested it a few times and there are no problems. At least I can still use the computer now. Time to locate a new video card.

    Thanks for you help,
    OldTink
