BSOD on both XP and Win7 (dual boot on same pc)

Hi
I get BSOD both in XP and Windows 7, both installed on the same machine (on different HDD if it makes any diferenece).
On XP i get : DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
On Windows 7 : IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

Hoping that someone can identify what is wrong

Thanks alot

Sounds like a hardware defect

Run Prime 95 to test your CPU. Carefully the instructions in this tutorial: CPU - Stress Test with Prime95. Run 3 separate tests, one on each of the settings (Blend, Small FFTs, Large FFTs).
Note that this test may overheat the CPU, ensure proper cooling.

Test your RAM
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Post back with you results

yowanvista, Thanks for your quick reply.
I Will try it later on and post the results.
Do the dumps particulary point at a hardware problem?

Dumps indicate that a core Windows file was involved in your crashes but Windows Files never cause BSODs unless being triggered by a hardware event(such as a unresponsive CPU or Bad RAM). That's the reason why I pointed out some hardware tests.
