+129|6462|Texas.. getting out asap
So I was browsing for servers in the BF2 menu when I clicked on a Taiwan server with 4000 ping without realizing it.... and BF2 froze like it always does when a server's ping is ridiculously high.
I waited a good 15 minutes and BF2 was still frozen so I held down the power button and shut off the computer. When I tried starting it back up, it loaded normally until I got to my desktop and all my startup programs were being loaded, then a blank frame flashed up for a couple milliseconds and when it dissapeared, there were about 5 random green pixels around my screen (I'm on a CRT so its not dead pixels).
Then the monitor went blank, and a blue screen came up that said IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Happens every time I try to reboot.

Right now I am in safe mode w/ networking.

Just to be clear, you're not overclocking are you? That's a common sort of crash with unstable overclocks.

But whatever's causing it invalid IRQ OS calls are gonna crash your system.

The green dots suggest it could be something to do with your GPU, possibly memory errors causing invalid responses which give you invalid IRQs? Try a different GPU in there and see if that works.

shit happens, I had a BSOD a few months back while playing BF2, I had to reinstall windows,  It managed to screw up everything.

Sounds to me like a complete reinstall of everything may be in order.

If that doesn't help, you've fucked some part of your hardware.
