unfortunatly i cannot see the picture attached.
However possible causes are as follows:
1.The processor / Graphics card is overheating (However this usually results in just shutting down)
2. The RAM could be faulty. (RAM is a funny piece of hardware as its lifespan annoyingly differs. If it is faulty unfortunatly only solution is to replace it)
3. There may be an error in the system your using. (With XP i advise to make sure you have anti-virus as XP is more vulnerable to infection i have found)
4. Dust in the pc is interupting connections. ( This is generally specific to desktop / tower pc's)
5. It could be an error in the installation as they've advised, however if a reinstall leaves you with same problems then i doubt this is the case
I suggest do a little maintanence on your pc. If its a desktop open the case; make sure ALL power cables to the mains are disconnected first. Then remove cables to harddrive then put then put them back in. Also remove the ram and blow the dust off, then place back in the computer.
I don't reccomend doing this with a laptop as they're more fiddly. Desktops tend to gather more dust as they're not as closely packed inside.
Once booted up into windows, under the start menu, all programs, accessories, system tools ----> then run disk cleanup (it will run a check on computer then click all options it has in the window----this shall remove all temporary files it has stored thus clearing up ram), also run Disk Defragment (in XP theres an option to analyze run this first then it shall say if you need to defrag, if yes then click defrag option and it shall defragment the system -- this can take a couple of hours).
Finally run an anti virus to scan the computer for viruses or spyware.
Once i can view the picture, i shall tell you what the specific problem may be, but in the meantime i suggest you do the above. This is general good maintanence which should be run at least once a month. Shall keep your computer running smoothly.

I agree - looks like a RAM, or possibly driver issue (did you update drivers recently, or install any new hardware?) See here:
Microsoft: Windows XP Pro - DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error
Scroll about halfway down, and you can see the official Microsoft answer for this STOP error...

Ok i can now see the picture.
That error is generally related to the fact that the system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. Drivers that have used improper addresses typically cause this error.
So in addition to what i previously said run windows update manually, and install all available updates.
Also go to the website of your graphics card manufacturer and download the most recent driver and install. Do this even if it is the most recent driver so it repairs any possible faults.
Finally run the repair xp software from the original xp disk. This will repair any faults in the system files.
Although it could quite possibly be RAM problems, it doesn't necessarily mean you need to change RAM cards yet. You can squeeze life out of them still
