Help. Stop error after boot - D1 - DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL



I get this blue screen error:


STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x02F25000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x02F25000)

no other info.
I have checked Microsoft support site and Googled my problem and don't find
a solution. I checked my ram modules - checked by changing them too. I
checked my Intel processor driver version. I checked my Logitech mouse driver
version. All seem ok and not part of the problem.

I am running on a Dell laptop, Windows XP Home Sp2. Intel Pentium M processor.
I have latest version of McAfee Security Center.

Problem first happened April 17th - booted fine, McAfee got it's updates and
was doing a behind scenes scan as it always does. I had Thunderbird open and
just deleted some crap emails. Netscape version 8.1.2 was open (usually use

Blue screen came up with the error. Rebooted. Desktop comes up while systray
things load, and get Stop error again. Rebooted without network connected,
but same result.
Tried various tests, but same result - blue screen comes sometimes faster
than other times. Suspect something loading.

Tried Last Known Good Configuration. No difference.

I can boot into Safe Mode. But only into Safe Mode. Can't get McAfee to scan
(or run).
I have the latest Counterspy - ran a scan with it - no problems.
There are dump files in \Windows\Minidump\ but don't know how to read them.

Auto Update had the latest Microsoft patch ready to install, but I never got
the chance.

There's been no new hardware. Only new software was free version of "Second
Life" on April 10th (was curious about all the fuss). Wondering if something
about it is related.

Need help.
Virus? Corrupted drivers?? How to find and fix?
I have limited tech-savy -- novice-apprentice level


Only Safe Mode makes you thinks 'drivers' first thing, with the burner driver
at the top of the list.
I would try refreshing a few drivers.
Go to Start/Run, and type DEVMGMT.MSC , highlight the device, Action menu,
"Uninstall", then restart Windows, to find the device drivers again
