    Windows 8.1


    Just got the strangest message on my XPS 8700 Dell PC and Im not sure what the cause is. I was just surfing the web and all of a sudden(Im on Windows 8.1) I get this message saying DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and the screen was blue with a sad face(Literally a sad face) and it said it was sending some info over to Microsoft then it rebooted and now it seems fine. Not sure what caused this to happen but Im afraid it might happen again..what do I have to do to check to see what the cause might be..Thanks
