    Can anyone help please.

    (Pc is a Athlon 1-Gig / Mobo MSI / OS Win XP home.
    I have the latest windows updates S-packs etc and have no virus's)

    The problem happens intermittently after plugging in my usb devices
    Printer and camera. It will be ok for about an hour or so and then suddenly
    The BSOD will appear - giving me the hard to diagnose message
    (IRQ_is not Less than or equal to) with a long memory report.
    The pc used to reeboot upon this error, but since disabling reeboots
    in the system failure option in xp it just blue-screens.
    I have tried the camera and printer on a different machine and it's fine.

    Any ideas please.

    Stable 1 hr then BSOD... hmmm could be hard to locate prob.

    Could be some sort of incompatibility of USB device drivers and your
    mobo (??)

    Could be a CPU temperature thing. CPU fan OK - not clogged with dust?

    Possible RAM problem(??) If you have two RAM sticks, are they
    identical and bought at the same time? Get MemTest86 v3 from
    http://www.memtest86.com/ and run it on your PC for at least a few
    passes (standard tests) - see if any errors.

    good luck
