    So first of all, I have a Dell Inspiron 600m with Windows XP Home SP3.

    Some background info that may or may not be relevant: I just had this OS installed though the computer is several years old (I had an ingenuine XP Pro before I cleared my C drive and installed a genuine XP Home). The XP installed was SP1 and then I did all the WUDs up to now I where I have SP3. Also, during that period, I had done a repair install because of some error I was getting following installation of a WUD. I don't know if any of that will be relevant at all, but just thought I should mention it.

    I get this BSOD any time I unplug my laptop. It says, "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"
    ...yada yada yada...
    "*** STOP: ....bunch of crap...

    *** gv3.sys - Address F8A16A89 base at F8A16000, Datestamp 3dd991eb

    Beginning dump of physical memory"

    I don't think it's a battery problem because I can use the computer after it reboots with the cord still unplugged. So I guess it's not that bad, but it's like I just can't unplug the computer while it's on. I know I used to be able to though.

    What do I need to do to keep this from happening?

    That's it. Awesome! I don't know how I didn't find that when I was looking googling around.

    Thanks!
