Hi, I'm having trouble with a desktop crashing a few times everyday. The Desktop is running XP Pro SP3. I thought it might be a RAM related issue so I changed the RAM but the problem remained. I then thought it might be a hardware issue with the Desktop but I removed the hard drive and installed it in another Desktop in the office which is the same model as the previous Desktop but the problem persists so I don't think it is a hardware issue.

When I check the mini dump file I get the following = IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ntoskrnl.exe

I've updated drivers and installed any service packs, etc and still no change. Also, scanned the PC for malware and viruses and it appears to be clean. Any suggestions? Let me know if I need to provide any additional info.
