I've been having a problem recently where my computer (vaio laptop w/ XP) will either go to a blue screen of death or freeze entirely when using the internet. It doesn't seem to be related to particularly heavy resource demand and happens mostly when scrolling on a webpage using the down arrow key.
The BSOD error that it gives is the IRQL not less or equal one, but the description of that in the thread on BSOD error codes doesn't give me any more of an idea of what's going on.
I downloaded Chrome to see if it was related to Firefox (as unlikely as that seemed) and it's happening with Chrome too. I have all of the service packs and updates installed, and have upgraded my wireless card driver to the most recent version.
I'm attaching a minidump zip, and the event view for the most recent BSOD says:
Error code 1000007f, parameter1 00000008, parameter2 80042000, parameter3 00000000, parameter4 00000000.
This has been happening ever since I re-installed Windows and added more memory - my theory is that there may be something wrong with the new memory I got? Should I check this, and if so, how?
Thanks in advance for any ideas, I really appreciate it!
