    OK. Norton 2002 has been known to cause some big problems with XP. Norton 2003 should be fine, however. Trend Micro Internet Security is what I use, and has never once cause a problem on my system.

    johndre, did you remove the partition then create a new one, or just format? There are bugs that don't go away with only a format.

    Another suggestion would be to wipe the drive using killdisk. http://www.killdisk.com/

    same blue screen

    I read the original post and it sounds identical to my computer. My kid was using the computer and it kept giving him an errror message to the effect that a file was missing-system32. My virus software was going to expire soon, so I downloaded AVG and unistalled Norton Internet Security. I ran the AVG, a trojan horse was found called "Optimizer.exe, " but AVG didn't finish. AVG deleted the Trojan Horse, I ran it again, none found, but AVG wouldn' t finish because of the blue screen. The blue screen to the effect Windows was shut down to avoid damage since a driver was the problem. I checked Device Manager and no problems. I decided to format the drive and re-install Windows XP. The install wouldn't finish on two occassions. At the very end, the blue screen would pop up about the driver problem I quit trying to do the install due to the blue screen just before install finished.
    Is this a nasty software problem or maybe hardware? Any help would be much appreciated.

    I had a similar problem with my laptop and corrected the problem by uninstalling, then reinstalling all of my system's drivers. It took a while, but I haven't had a BSOD in months.

    The problem may be related to a corupt Norton Antivirus as well.

    Video, audio, nic, wireless nic, modem, touchpad (mouse) drivers - to name the basics I reinstalled.

    very hard to pin these down. its almost certainly a driver conflict of some sort.

    heve you updated any drivers recently.

    if yes, did you completely remove the old drivers first.

    have you installed new cards? could it be that they are conflicting with an onboard device.

    i imagine you've already googled this......... lots of instances of irq not less than etc........and all seemingly with a different resolution. i did have the irq error myself......turned out to a rogue set of graphics drivers.

    welcome to Techimo..........

    Blue screen

    Help please. My system keeps shuting down, and comes up to a blue screen. It says invalid work queue, and sometimes irql not less or equal. It gives a bunch of numbers, and at bottom says something about ndis.sys. Sometimes this happens during a program and sometimes when it is just sitting. I tried to download windows updates, and in the middle of download it stops, and goes to blue screen. This is happening more and more often. I am running XP PRO and using a D-Link dwl-120 . This is driving me nuts. Any suggestions?

    Thank You!
