I am running windows xp sp2. I get sporadic shutdowns. Sometimes it is just as I am trying to log onto windows. sometimes it is when I plug in my usb key. (sometimes plugging in the key is fine) And other times I come back to my computer and see that it has shut down. The BSOD says:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
STOP: 0x0000000A (0xE1D0D390,Ox000000FF,0x00000000,0x80563cd6)
The last hexadecimal number always has 80563 in it.
I have tried to repair windows Xp with the install disk (and then reinsatlled SP2) but there is still a problem. I would love to resolve this without doing a complete reinstall.

Desperately hoping someone can help!

This is a tuff one. Normally, this is related to either physical memory, or power supply is failing.

If you decide to do a clean install, and during the installation it's telling you that files can't be copied saying "skip, abort, etc". Then you have memory issues.

If you do a clean install, don't really put big applications, and it still happens, then most likely I would change the power supply (and a cheap 15$ power supply won't do it either).

Hopefully, this can help.
