Every so often my computer will go to a blue screen and say

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_EQUAL OR LESSER VALUE

and then tell me to restart my computer. This happens very frequently now, anybody know how to fix it? Anbody know what even wrong?

Usually is a driver issue. Have you installed any hardware lately?
You can try uninstalling the drivers for sound cards, network controllors, modems, etc one at a time and then reinstalling the drivers.
Use the latest version driver you can find. If the problem reapperars try using an older version. Sometimes a newer version can cause this problem.
