This machine just BSODed right before it completely shutdown and then restarted, as usual. I checked the Event Viewer and was given an ACPI error, event ID 7...
IRQARB: ACPI BIOS indicates that a device will generate IRQ 255. ACPI BIOS has also indicated that the machine has no IRQ 255.
How do I go about preventing this in the future?
EDIT 1: It's still BSODing right at the end of shutting down, but even when I have switched the memory dump folder to be
C:\WINDOWS\Minidump, that folder still doesn't exist after rebooting after the BSOD has occurred. (Do I need to create the Minidump folder myself?) Also, referring to another post I made about this machine, there is a (!) beside the UAA High Definition Audio Device in the Device Manager... don't know if this has anything to do with the BSODs.

just reformat your pc, once it is a BSOD, its hopeless.
