Hi,

Normally there is a STOP error that accompanies that IRQ error - its probably what you refer to as gobbledigook :)

Its will say something like Stop 0x000000A1 or silmilar, with more numbers in brackets. Its that number above that may help, can you read it and post it next time it happens.

i am not gonna say anything cause i am not 100% what your actual problem is (like the person above me said, get the code and google it too find out) but i had similair issues with my pc crashing every half hour randomly, got new ram fixed the problem.. so if you updated it or someone inserted a new ram it could be faulty etv

hi there, thanks for replying the numbers that normally appear are 0x000000a (ox000000010, 0x0000002, 0x00000001, 0x805054cb)

this does change and different messages appear but this is the most regular.
thank you
lisa :)
