    Since going from XP to a new computer with Vista last month, i seem to have had a lot of crashes and BSoD

    Varying from "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" to "page fault in non paged area"

    Seemingly, it never crashes if the computer is idle, but whenever im on it, it'll crash either within 20 secs or after a few hours.

    It only takes from browsing the internet to play a game to crash it.

    The RAM has been tested, and where it was built they had no problem running it even running the machine for 24 hours.

    System specs are

    Intel Core2 Duo - 2.13GHz
    2GB Ram
    160GB (System HD)
    nVidia Geforce 8600 256MB

    On Vista Home Premium

    These games you are trying to play are ALL Vista compliant right?

    If NOT that may be the problem, games that are NOT written Vista will and do have issues with running Vista.
