Hey Guys,
I am new to this forum only because I have only just come across it.
It looks very active and am excited to try it out so here goes:

I restarted my confuser box 2 days ago to get "Windows could not start successfully"
I was given the normal options to use safe mode or last known config.
Only safe mode is working currently.
I disabled auto restart so I could read the error which is:
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

with a stop code of: 0x0000000A
0xfffffffE8 0x00000002 0x00000001 0x8052SJB4

CHKDSK did nothing for the problem...

I assume it is a hardware/driver issue.
I have been disabling and reinstalling components and services for awhile now to no avail. Maybe MOBO problem?

I have a Sony Vaio
with XP HOME SP2
All factory hardware configuration.
I have only ever installed software but not in the last 10 restarts.
The problem came out of nowhere

thank you for reading and hopefully someone out there can help.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

with a stop code of: 0x0000000A
0xfffffffE8 0x00000002 0x00000001 0x8052SJB4

The last memory reference is actually 0x805255B4

So I really think this is driver or hardware related.
But how are we supposed to trace the culprit to the above number??

Well if you can boot into safemode, well thats a great start, be happy for that because back in the day when i was always crashing, i usually never could use it(nada), but as far as your problem goes, chances are it's a driver related issue.

The problem was MCAFFEE VirusScan.

I uninstalled/reinstalled and no more problem.
I feel sorry for whoever else gets a problem like this....
and thanks to anyone who posted

Jan 24/01/07 Thankyou so much for this information, I have spent 2 hours troubleshooting BSOD, tried system restore, msconfig, diagnostic startup, but still would not boot (only in safe mode). Uninstalled MCAFEE internet security suite 2006 and hey presto - It booted. Now reinstalled MCAFEE (had to start mcafee items in services.msc manually). And all back to normal. Still took 4 hours but would have been much longer without your advice - THANKS!
