Hi,
My computer has started to stop, sometimes once a day and sometimes 2 or 3 times in a row.

The Blue screen comes on and it never displays the same message, they are all different.

The first one tonight was PNN filles corrupted (I think as I was trying to find a pencil)

About 10 minutes later it happened again but this time I was better prepared.

Blue screen

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

and nearer the bottom

STOP: OXOOOOOOOA

Help please.

Regards

To turn off auto rebooting so you can see the blue screen messages.

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System
2. Go to Advanced
3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...
4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart".

You can look here for what the error messages mean.

http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.php

0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Typically due to a bad driver, or faulty or incompatible hardware or software. Technically, this error condition means that a kernel-mode process or driver tried to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) that was too high. (A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own.)

It's the second answer down. You can look at some of the fixes in the links.

If possible i would do a repair install of XP now.

You will need a XP CD to do this. It will not delete any software as it only repairs files in the windows folders.

Hi,
The IT Tech I use is having a look at the computer and I will let you know what he finds.

The last I saw of him he was muttering to himself about Microsoft, Windows and computers with some other words that I cannot type here!

Thank you for your time and help

Sorry about the long delay but I had to go back to my second home, the Base Hospital.

The Tech found the problem, the Ram was very dirty so he gave the whole computer a good clean and it is back to normal.

Thank you for your help and time.

Regards
