I am about to chunk this damn computer against the wall... :bad-words: :throwmonitor:

i was first getting the NTFS.SYS BSOD then A BSOD for trying to install SP3... I reformated again for the 3rd time. (3rd the the charm) <- WRONG... i was able to get all SP1,SP2 and SP3 installed but now when go to do a windows update it imitaly BSOD for ("DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"). And this is coming from trying to do a windows update. What do I do? Also I have tried installing Windows 7 Pro and it tells me the computer is too old... :(

Intel Pentium D 3.0 Ghz
PNY 4Gigs ram
512mb PNY geforce 560 ti
1TB hard drive.

Windows xp home edition [32 bit] (the very first edition)

I have windows 7 BOTH 32 bit and 64 Bit versions. Both cd's came in the box when i had got it from bestbuy awhile back.


Thanks for the help

You could try some of those. I'd definitely try upgrading any firmware and drivers prior to trying to load up your SPs and Windows Updates.

well i got windows 7 to finally install. Took out 2 sticks of ram and boom it installs. go figure.. never can truly figure out this software...

o and maybe a noob move but i had 3 sticks 1gb - single channel ram and 1 stick of 1gb dual chanel ram. it use to work fine when i installed it all. i guess windows 7 didnt like it much so now i am chilling with windows 7 Pro with 3gigs. its only 32bit anyhow..

Dont i feel like a NOOB.. :lol:
