Lately I've been getting the blue screen of death saying that my computer is being shut down to prevent damage. Each and every time I get the blue screen, it suggests turning off shadowing and caching on my BIOS. I access my BIOS, but I don't see the option of enabling/disabling caching/shadowing. Is that option available with this mobo? If so, where on the BIOS menu can I find that option? Thanks in advance!

A BIOS cashing or shadowing switch  used to be available in the BIOS code for many boards... I haven't come accross it recently.  There is no switch, as far as I know, that will prevent BIOS code from being written to main memory. 

What error does the blue screen reporte...?

I forgot exactly what the error is, but I do remember a memory dump being mentioned. I'll jot down exactly what the blue screen says when it comes up again.

The blue screen says:
DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Technical Information:
***STOP:0x000000D1 (0x001201c3, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xAF7711B6)

And again, it says that I should disable caching and shadowing in the BIOS.

This can be a driver issue..  Have you installed anything new just prior to the onset of these blue screens...?  You may also have gotten a virus that has renamed a driver file and this leads to the blue screen.  You might want to run 'Hijack This'.. along with a full scan with your antivirus application.
