    Ok, my new computer is a huge source of frustration as it often crashes, giving me the "IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL" etc message, then it restarts...this is with no programs added, at various random times. I did a bit of searching and some people have found the ASUS P5N-T-DX motherboard to be very unstable so looking around here I see George (gdame) recomends the asus P5K64 WS so I'm going to ask the computer store to send mine back and get that one instead.

    ...maybe I should also ask them if they could buy back the memory and video card for half price or whatever they offer and get the stuff George recomends...2 gigs of 1333 OCZ memory and Quadro FX1500. I would lose $$$ but I want to be happy with the end result.

    then I got to thinking, my hobby is collecting video clips and having them play back at random, but I currently only collect clips from dvds because the quality is better than tv...however, a few days ago I got a hd tv and am starting to notice some pictures are looking very nice. Can I get a computer that can capture that 1080i HDTV signal by way of the hdmi cable coming out of my shaw HD pvr box? If it's possible, I guess it would involve adding some kind of capture card with hdmi input, plus upgrading my edius pro 3? I guess I'm being lazy asking this without looking around more first, but it's about 2:30 am and I've had a rough weekend working with this new computer which I'm going to take back tomorrow, and I'd like to have a better idea what I'd like before I take it back. Anyway, I'll look around a bit some more tomorrow. Thanks

            1) Remove the Sound card and see if that changes anything. if not
            2) Remove 3 of your (video) hard drives and see if it still gives that error when using a single hard drive. Do you have a RAID card installed?

            Thanks for the tips! I was going to remove the onboard sound thru the bios but didn't want to do anything that might cause the store to say I voided the warranty. When I return the computer I'll tell the store your suggestions. I don't have any raid, just 4 hard drives.

                IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL is generally the sign of a driver or hardware conflict. It could be some kind of BIOS settings conflict, and it can also be the sign of bad/failing hardware.

                On the other hand, it might be something simple like a card not "sitting nicely" in its slot.

                The last time I had IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL it was because the fan on my graphics card had failed.

                Hopefully the store will be able to sort it out for you.
