chuckbradley Posted January 5, 2007 Share Posted January 5, 2007 My son built himslef a computer with great success so I decided to let him build me one. Well he is having problems he doesnt know how to handle. We thought it was a bad hardrive since he can take the harddrive out of his computer and it works fine. We sent the one back and got the new one today. Guess that wasnt it. While installing XP , towards the end , he gets the blue screen of death. The error code is "IRQl equal less" He has it all wrote down and has been researching it without much luck. Anybody have any ideas or care to talk to him about which direction to go from here? I have a 1900.00 pile pf parts that are useless right now. I have to say he did have it running and then it started locking up. He was playing with overclocking it and it just kept locking up more often then it wouldnt even bootup. But it does run with anoher hard drive installed. The new one is a Western Digital and the one we swapped out was a maxtor?. Too many things to write it all here. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
