BSOD updating Counter-Strike Source & Downloading Audio

When I was both updating CSS and downloading some music, I got the BSOD. The one issue I remember getting was this: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Any help would be appreciated. I have read the info on what to do prior to posting, but I am still a new member here.
