Default IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I've been getting increasingly frequent crashes of my Windows XP Home
PC in recent months. Complete and abrupt shut down, with the cryptic,
daunting Error 'Stop 0x0000000A or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL'. I can't
pin down what causes it, because there are always several major
programs running at the time, including MSIE6, Agent, TextPad, Snagit,
etc, apart from the OS itself. But, FWIW, I'm always online at the
time.

I'm wondering if this might be a graphics card issue?

CPU = AMD Athlon XP1800+ with 512MB PC2100 DDR memory, m/b = ASUS
A7A266-E,System Chipset = M1647 ALiMAGiK 1 AGP System Controller,
graphics = 64MB NVidia Geforce2 MX, sound = Sound Blaster 5.1 Audio
with Dolby surround and Creative Four Point Surround (FPS1600), modem
= Conexant CXT1035 - HCF 56k v90 (internal), printer = Lexmark Z23,
scanner = Umax AstraSlim 3400 USB.


Try setting the pagefile.sys on your system drive to a minimum of 50
meg and a max of say 300 for now.

Thanks. Actually, I was surprised to find that i *hadn't* still got a
min and max set, as I certainly used to. It's apparently presently
system managed, with 767 MB specified.

But when I tried to change it, I got this:

"If the pagefile on volume C: has an initial size of less than 511
megabytes, then the system may not be able to create a debugging
information file if a STOP error occurs. Continue anyway?"

For moment, I've backed out. Any thoughts please?

Ignore this and disable the de-bugging as it's useless anyway.
