Post IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL = WTF?!?!
So... my pc crashes. I turned off auto-restarts and this pops up when it locks up. It goes to a blue screen and begins a memory dump. *poof* my PC dies.
I think its crap RAM as my vid-card is up to date and etc. My Mother on the other hand (Read: Im still in High school -_-" ) believes that CC CAUSED IT !?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! << Insert anger here >> so now Im CC-less.
I CALL UPON THE POWER OF THE CC COMMUNITY TO HELP !

It could possibly be a problem with Windows, not your hardware.

Your ram is most likely busted.

You could try removing a stick and see if that helps. (Most computers have more than one stick of ram)

Since you mentioned it, perhaps he should run MemTest86+, it can help check for errors in RAM.

Are there any other symptoms before you boot into Windows?

Nope no symptoms. I figure it was ram because when I was running a few resource heavy bits it tends to go overboard.
i.e.
1. CC
2. Painter
3. PS
4. IRC
5. WMP

That error is mainly drivers,

Check drivers for everything, see if theres any software updates.

Go to http://driveragent.com

It will ask to install a little program, its ok, it will scan your computer for drivers, It wont give you places to download the new drivers..but i am petty sure you can figure that out on yourself.

what it can do is tell you errors and outofdate drivers.
