I was playing Wolfenstein - Enemy Territory, whilst talking to a friend over Skype, and I suddenly get this blue screen error... It's the first thing that's gone wrong with my newly built PC, and I dunno why. My PC restarted before I could jot down the specific error, but it said something like "Driver_not_less_or_equal". It recommended I remove newly added hardware, what is up :'(

Right click My Computer => Properties => Advanced Tab => Startup and recovery settings button => uncheck automatically restart then click ok

This will stop your computer from rebooting so that you may jot down the error if it comes again.

The msg probably said,

"IRQ Driver_not_less_or_equal"

We have had several Threads on that problem in the last few weeks.

I suggest that you Google: "irq driver not less or equal"

There's ussually more to the message that gives a memory address or file name. Thats the useful part of the message.

It ussually comes down to drivers not being up to date or something needing a patch. But it can be anything at all.

Something slightly off topic but, I've gotten this other error twice at shutdown aswell.

navapsvc.exe - Application error
The instruction at "0x0040a31e" referenced memory at "0x00000000"
The memory could not be "read"

Thats a Norton error. What version of Norton are you running?

Open up the Norton Antivirus and Click on the LiveUpate Button. Have it download any and all updates. You may need to do this several times after rebooting. Then there should be an Options button. Click that and go to Automatic and then Advanced or something like that I think and uncheck the option to Scan Floppies at reboot/shutdown.

Also run Windows Updates to get any and all Windows updates.

And as a recommendation; Norton blows.

Well that may be your problem. Thats cooking and you're risking damaging the CPU!!!. Check to make sure the fan is working and that the heatsink is installed correctly. If the heatsink is slightly crooked on the CPU it won't make good contact and overheat. Also make sure that you remove the protective tape off the bottom of the heatsink to expose the thermal pad. Or if it didn't have a thermal pad that you applied thermal paste.

Again if its really at 71 degrees then you have a SERIOUS problem.

Hahaha! It would've died by now if it was really at that temperature... The instant I restart and check the Bios I get a consistant reading of 31 celcius, so obviously there's something up with Everest'

Do you have a Firewall? Try it in IE if you are using another browser, I had troouble with that site a while ago using an older version of Firefox.

Or right click on the link and choose to Save it.
