    The usual cause of this error is a coding error in a device driver. ISP refers to the Interrupt Stack Pointer, which is used by device drivers to store information, the most common cause of running out of IRP Stack Locations is that the driver software has failed to return ones that it has finished using.

    Did your pen drive come with any software?
    Does your pen drive work on other computers?
    Do other pen drives work on your computer?

    This sounds like you have a corruption with one of your standard Windows XP device drivers to me. I will move this thread to the Windows XP forum, where the people who are good at resolving this kind of problem hang out, maybe someone will have a suggestion that is not as drastic as a complete reinstall of Windows over the top of your existing installation.

    Re: no_more_irp_stack_locations

    This sounds like it might be hardware related. How old is the machine and who built it ??

    Re: no_more_irp_stack_locations

    I'd start with removing all the PCI cards and booting to the existing OS installation and see what you have. Then add back the cards 1 at a time and see how things behave. It could be a card or a slot or neither one, but you've gotta start somewhere. If you really want to get a fresh start, then I'd format and reinstall with all the cards in place, then reinstall any required software for the cards and see what you've got. <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    I hate troubleshooting hardware !!!

    Re: no_more_irp_stack_locations

    I have one last question.
    When i took my computer back to bare bones i still had problems,i was told that when you removed a pci card that on next reboot windows disabled the driver for that card,is this true or false?
    i'm not sure if i had hardware or driver conflict

    Thanks to all, lauriewill

    Re: no_more_irp_stack_locations

    When you remove the hardware, Windows XP does not enable the driver on the next reboot, but it does remember that the device used to exist and what driver it was using.

    If you want to see, or remove, the entries for devices that have been removed then follow the instructions in <post#=475,091>post 475,091</post: >
