From this page:

0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
(Click to consult the online Win XP Resource Kit article.)
The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.

Sounds like you need a new network card driver, have a network card that is not responding or, your driver is stepping on another memory area that it is excluded from accessing.

(could be a dll issue, sometimes drivers jump into routines instead of looking up the routine in the dll library by the index, the compiler just hard codes the jump to location xxxx inside the dll causing a memory fault)

Reload your driver, or look for a replacement, start with the network card and video card.

Hope this helps,

The hotfix in that link given by trustwisecomputers is for the x64 platform. The home premium I have (stated in the specs given) is the x86 (32 bit). I'm not sure but will the suggested hotfix be compatible to my OS?

If not please provide the link for the correct hotfix

Much appreciated.
