[SOLVED] BSOD 0xA - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL while playing TitanFall

Q: [SOLVED] BSOD 0xA - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL while playing TitanFall


I have gotten this BSOD recently playing TitanFall. I have not experienced it any other time. Running a clean install of the latest GeForce drivers. This computer was built in January and I have not noticed this BSOD until this week with TitanFall; during the TitanFall Beta and with older Nvidia drivers this did not occur either.

I've attached the "Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2" zip file for analysis, but Windows 8.1 does not allow me to run perfmon /report. It simply says "An error occured while attempting to generate the report. The operator or administrator has refused the request." despite my account being the administrator and CMD being opened with admin privileges. So if more information is needed because of this, please let me know.

Before I list specs, I just want to mention that 24 hour of Memtest86+ 5.0.1 yielded no errors.

? OS - Windows 8.1 Pro
? x64
? Originally installed OS: Windows 8 Pro
? I purchased this OS through my school and got a download link for the ISO from Microsoft.
? Age of system - January 2014 for most parts, PSU and one HDD were purchased in 2010.
? OS was installed in January 2014 after new computer assembly on a cleanly formatted SSD.

? CPU - i5 4670K (no overclock)
? Video Card - Zotac GTX 670 2GB and EVGA GTX 670 2GB (SLI, no overclocks)
? MotherBoard - Asus Z87-A, latest BIOS (1802).
? Power Supply - Corsair TX750 V1, 750 Watts
Additional info: OCZ Agility 3 120GB (lastest firmware) SSD, Seagate Barracude 1TB HDD

? System Manufacturer - Not a prebuilt. Was built manually.

Desktop computer.
Please let me know if any additional information is needed.

Thank you.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: [SOLVED] BSOD 0xA - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL while playing TitanFall


The attached DMP file is of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bug check.

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high. The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.


1. Uninstall Asus PC Probe ASAP.

2. Are you using OpenVPN/COMODO?

So, i got a relative new (<1 year old) home build PC. There weren't any problems during the first couple of months. But now, i got these bsod's while playing Titanfall, viewing a movie or video on YouTube. So I thought there was something wrong with my video card or it's driver. So I ran verifier.exe to see what could be wrong, restarted my PC and that's when i ran into a BSOD-loop, with DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Not a problem, If i could enable safe mode in the recovery menu that shows up after a few bsod's. I could try and solve the problem with google. The problem was that my pc didn't react to my keyboard at all. So after many reboots, i decided to clear my CMOS on my motherboard. With success, because my keyboard did work again, and i could reboot again, without safe mode with verifier on. So I assumed my problem was solved, and disabled verifier. that was 2 days ago, but today, after a whole day working for school on my pc, I needed so relax time and decided to watch a video on YouTube. And that's when i got another bsod with System_Service_Exception Attachment 52964

Hello Guys,

I have been having a problem with my #teamred PC since I built it 2 years ago but it's reached the point where it's getting me down now.
My system is:

Desktop PC
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit sp1 (original os) OEM (I think) - recent clean install by me (again)

*2 years old*
Motherboard Asus Crosshair V Formula Z

CPU AMD FX 9370 black edition @ 4.4GHz (not overclocked)

Corsair RM Series RM 1000 '80+ Gold' 1000W Power Supply

*1 year old*
TeamGroup Vulcan RED 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 PC3-19200C11 2400MHz Dual Channel Kit

I have done a full memtest86 (with both sticks in). It took 18 hours and showed no errors.

I play a lot of hours gaming. I used to play Evolve but got banned for 'product tampering' I didn't tamper with my game. I thought it was the games problem, keep crashing but now I play Titanfall 2 and still crash, I think that it may be my PC?

I Found that my Antec K?HLER H2O 1250 was failing to turn one of the fans so I have replaced that with a Corsair H105 water cooler.

Any help or advice would be most welcome...

log attached

Regards... Pete

Computer goes to bluescreen after a few minutes playing Titanfall, clean installed OS with same result.

No issues playing other games e.g. World of Warcraft, Guild Wars 2, etc, so far.

Bluescreenviewer mostly reports ntoskrnl.exe as the cause although prior to OS reinstall, hal.dll popped up a time or two also.

I have run memtest86+ for 8 passes with no errors reported. (Didn't realize this test took so long, not keen to do it again,

I've tested my drive, no errors, run sfc /scannow, no errors, used prime95 and no bsods.

I'm at a loss as to why. Do I need to just buy a complete new system? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Hi dragonpunch,

Currently I'm analysing the dump files.
Right now it looks like your CPU is not compatible with your system. (This doesn't mean the CPU is faulty.)
But first check if there are driver updates available at your manufacturers site, because this crash could also be caused by drivers.
The following is for information purposes only.

The following information contains the relevant information from the blue screen analysis:

PC newbie, here. Just built my first gaming PC. I tried to follow the directions of posting for help on a BSOD crash but I couldn't really understand it. About 5 minutes into playing Battlefield 3, I get bluescreened with an IRQL error.

Here is the zipped files that I got.

This happens to games I play, most recently Blacklight Retribution.

I have ran memtest86+ (said it passed), chkdsk (no errors), uninstalled nvidia drivers using DDU and reinstalling the stable driver, made sure my RAM was securely locked in, and can't figure it out.

I ran FurMark to see if my graphics card was overheating and it stayed at 74C (my cards max temp is 98C).

Alot of the games I play will crash to desktop or BSOD with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

My Steam folder is installed on my other internal hard drive (not the one with the Windows 7 install).

I thought it could've been my PSU so I went out and bought a 850W one.

Im beginning to become really frustrated as I just built this computer, primarily for gaming.

I did a fresh Windows install earlier today hoping it would help but I'm still getting this same problem.

I wonder if its a program I installed but have no idea.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm tearing my hair out at this point.

EDIT: Crashed again overnight, I was downloading Guild Wars 2 and was sleeping so I couldn't see the BSOD.
Crashed again with SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION while playing Guild Wars 2

A:BSOD when playing games, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Hi sinisterideals.

First, free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

If it does not show any error, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point ma... Read more

Hello. I was receiving the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD message for the past couple of days and it first started when I was playing SW:TOR. I just recently clean installed. I have about 7 mini dumps since the first time it happened including 2 minidumps today, all the same bsod message. I've cleaned my computer as well as ran driver verifier for most of these bsod messages.

I hope that these minidumps can pinpoint the problem. Thank you.

Hi there,
I run Windows 7 64 bit and have been having an issue lately where I get a bluescreen while playing either Counterstrike or Dota2. It is important to add, that I can seemingly use my computer for other purposes without any drama. (be it web browsing, playing Hearthstone or using word/excel etc.)

The Technical Information at the bottom of the blue screen reads as follows:

*** STOP: 0x0000000A (0x0000000000000020, 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000, 0xFFFFF8000C15F112)

I got fed up with the problem and decided to do a clean install onto my SSD, in hopes that this would fix the problem.

For the first day after install, I was problem free. Not a single blue screen. Since then, I ran my windows updates and continued to go about normal usage.

The next day, however, the problem is back, and just as bad if not more frequent than before!

After reading other threads, I am currently in the process of ensuring my software is up to date. (I downloaded slim drivers free and am working my way through the list)

I would appreciate any more help in identifying and resolving this issue!
Kind regards,

Recently my computer has been BSOD while playing games, and when that doesn't happen my programs stop working. I'm constantly getting "This program has stopped working," and it's not necessarily just games that stop working either, however the BSOD is generally while gaming. My computer is fairly new (~6 months old) and was running perfectly until about a month ago when this started happening. At first it was less frequently, and only seemed to happen while playing Dota 2 but now my entire computer seems to be messing up.

Hello everyone,

It crashes when I play video games, and I get some BSOD such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (but the last I got was the first one).
Sometimes I get a BSOD when I start the computer : DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION but when I restart my computer everything run smoothly.

I have been seeing intermittent BSOD's for the last couple of months now whilst playing games, always IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL message codes, but never any more information.
I've read that this is usually caused by bad drivers accessing invalid memory, but I can't determine which driver is causing the problem.

I've tried my hand at debugging the minidump file, but this isn't my forte, I'm hoping someone on here might be able to make more progress.

It did seem to be happening with 'older' games initially, do I thought it might have been a DirectX issue, as I seem to recall that windows 10 doesn't directly support dx9, but it's also started happening on newer games also.

The component at fault is reported as 'ntkrnlmp.exe' but I'm guessing that is not the real culprit.

A couple of weeks ago I backed up data from my desktop to my laptop and fresh installed windows 10 (as I had previously been on an upgraded versions from 7), but the blue screens have returned, which I reckon either means windows is automatically installing a bad driver, or something else is driving it to fault.

When I restarted my PC after the last blue screen, my BIOS errored reporting that the CPU temp was too high. When I got a new cpu 5/6 months ago I did have to scrape off and re-apply thermal paste to re-use my radiator, so there's a chance I didn't do that as well as I could have - Before I go re-applying the paste I just wanted to know if it was possible for cpu overheat to cause this kind of BS...

I've been having this problem for quite a time now, and I've yet to actually fix it. A while back I was having issues with my RAM, and I deduced it to being caused by one faulty stick. I originally had 64gb of 1866, all of the same model of course. I'm now using only 4 sticks of the 8 and that fixed that problem.

More recently I've been encountering the same problem and I've done the whole remove and replace one stick at a time and doing that did not fix the problem. I ran Aida64 for 24 hours for each test and no change was observed. I used every configuration of ram while playing League of Legends and the same BSOD would appear.

I haven't updated my drivers in a long time. I can almost guarantee that be the issue. My bios is most likely out of date too. I'm the kind of person that doesn't like to update anything unless it's broken, and now it's broken.

Hello! It's been two years since my last BSOD on my Lenovo Y580 laptop.

Specs of the Laptop:
Intel i7-3630QM
Nvidia GTX 660M + Intel HD4000 (Optimus)

I heard this might be either RAM related or software related, but my RAM has been working fine ever since I got this computer about 2-3 years ago.

Hi, I am having some issues with a BSOD when playing games on an overclocked 6600k. The processor itself is be completely stable with a 4.5GHz overlock at 1.296V when stress tested for ~7 hours and through normal use. The BSOD occurs within 30 minutes to 2 hours of gameplay. *Note*: This issue does not persist when the processor is at base clock and voltages. Pictured below is one of my stress tests.

The BSOD error in question is: DRIVER IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
And from BlueScreenView, the cause seems to be ntoskrnl.exe

My computer's specifications are as follows:
- Asus z170-A w/ BIOS version 2202
- Intel i5-6600k w/ Corsair H100i v2
- 2x 8Gb Kingston HyperX 2666MHz DDR4 (XMP)
- Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080
- Corsair GT 128Gb SSD
- 2x Seagate 1Tb 7200rpm HDD

All hardware other than the drives are less than 2 months old.
These are the steps I have taken to troubleshoot to no avail:
- updated all mobo drivers (delayed time to crash by ~10 or so minutes)
- clean GPU update to version 372.90 using DDU (no change, causes artifacting at 144hz. Reverted to 368.81)
- ran Memtest86 (4 passes) with no errors
- dropping RAM off of XMP to stock clock (2133MHz)
Potential fixes that I have yet to try:
- cleanboot -> (Does a cleanboot still have necessary drivers to play a game to test results?)
- clean windows installation -> (Either need to grab a separate drive or backup my current installation to a seperate drive. [I do have the space necessary for a complete b... Read more

1. Not overclocking
2. 750W PSU

Attached the SF Diagnostic Tool zip. BSOD started since:

1. Replaced motherboard and processor.
2. Fresh installation of Windows 7.
3. Upgraded from Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 to 2014.

Happened 6 out of 7 while playing FIFA 14, used to be okay with previous spec.

What I did so far:

1. Ran memtest+ (1 pass 0 error).
2. Rollback nvidia driver to a more stable version.
3. Ran sfc /scannow with no error.
4. Furmark stress test more than 10 minutes capped at 90?c (10fps)

I have been experiencing multiple crashes from a few different games. The one most prominent is Dragon Age: Origins where it crashes once it starts. I have a 50/50 crash rate on other games like Hearthstone and Smite. It only crashes when a game is being played and only when the game is being booted. Some games have never caused a BSOD like League of Legends and Fallout NV. These crashes have happened for a few years now but since this computer was a backup I really never minded it much until it became my main PC for now.

No recent dumps.

Make sure your dump logging is enabled.
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click System.
Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Check Write an even to the system log, and Automatically restart.
In the Write debugging information list, click Small memory dump (256k).

Location of Dumps:

Please uninstall Daemon Tools. It uses a driver called sptd.sys which is known to cause BSODs in Windows 7.

 SPTD Removal:
Uninstall the software using Add/Remove Programs.
Reboot the system.
Once the program is uninstalled, run sptd.sys uninstaller to remove the driver from your system.

Hey everyone,

So, I am at my wits end here. Over the last few months, I have been getting BSODs playing only select games (usually Steam games). What I mean by this, is that some games run perfectly fine with no issues, yet some yield a BSOD.

Games that cause a BSOD:
Wasteland 2 (most recent)
Watch Dogs
Dawn of War II (though not very often)
Marvel Heroes 2015
The Sims 3
Games that are perfectly fine:
World of Warcraft
Diablo 3
Metro: Last Light
3D Mark (sure, not a game, but still hardware intensive)
I've tried all I can to resolve this issue, but I have yet to find the culprit (hoping it's not a hardware issue). You guys are my only hope. I have of course attached all necessary files, and have copy/pasted the log from WhoCrashed(not that it helps much) below with Verifier on. Any help would be immensely appreciated! Thank you!

A:IRQl_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Random BSOD While playing Tera, Error 0xA

Only one memory dump in the enclosed reports. If you are using a disk cleanup utility, please don't use it while we're troubleshooting.

You have a TP-LINK 150Mbps Wireless N Adapter. Win7 doesn't like these devices, and if you're using a Vista-era driver with it it's sure to start spitting out BSOD's. Here's my rant about these devices:

I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Win7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.

SSD's must have the latest firmware installed, and you must have the latest controller drivers (for your motherboard) from the manufacturer of the controller that's on you motherboard (not from the motherboard manufacturer).
Here's my rant on these devices:
We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:

There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

HI, I have this problem for a while since upgrading to Win 10 ( free forced upgrade from Win 7 ) It got quite annoying so I did a free install of Win10 to ensure it wasn't old driver etc causing issues left behind from Win 7. I was playing WoW free trail and computer crashed no freeze up just straight to BSOD. Funny thing was that after the fresh OS install I hadn't had a crash or lockup for at least 24h. I used WhoCrashed to find out more and it says the files ntoskrnl.exe and ntkrnlmp.exe crashed at the same time.

Anyone able to help me as this haunt my life.

Hi, I had to reformat an old IBM Thinkpad, I used the onboard way to do it. Since reinstalling XP I get the BSOD described above. It always reboots, does a disk check says all files are fine, then starts up. I have updated the bios, and video driver.
When I try to do a windows update for sp2, the bsod comes back every time. Another driver problem? Should I be checking the RAM memory? I did not have this problem before I reinstalled XP.

Let me get right to it. So, a few weeks ago, my computer started to bluescreen when going into sleep mode. So when it is told to sleep, the screen will fade to black and it will seem to start to enter sleep. The HDD activity light will eventually stop, yet after a few seconds before entering a sleep state, HDD activity resumes and a blue screen is displayed. I am usually capable of figuring out most things having to do with computers, however I need to ask for help from the community on this one. I am unable to think of anything I have done to start this. I didn't install anything new or update drivers or anything when this started happening.
Here is what I have tried so far:
Removed daemon tools
Removed Avast!
Updated drivers
Run windows disk check - no errors found
Run WD Data Lifeguard disk check - no errors found
Run Memtest on two separate occasions - no errors found
Updated bios - this also removed all overclocking so I'm at stock speed
Removed various unneeded software
Reverted back to earliest and stable restore point - seemed to stop the problem, maybe for a few stand-by cycles, yet didn't last. Now the machine provides a BSOD every time I attempt to stand by.
I am truly at a loss at this point. Hopefully the dumps attached will be of help, yet I am unable to understand them. All I know is that ntoskrnl.exe is the driver listed when running BlueScreenView.

If there is anything I can do to provide helpful information, do not hesitate to ask.

A:[SOLVED] BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal ntoskrnl.exe


All of the attached DMP files are of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bug check.

This indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

This bug check is issued if paged memory (or invalid memory) is accessed when the IRQL is too high. The error that generates this bug check usually occurs after the installation of a faulty device driver, system service, or BIOS.

The instruction we fail on is the same in every crash dump:

I have the exact same problem after updating to Vista SP1. Hope I can sit in on this one.

My problem arises when I turn on an external eSata drive in Windows. Windows won't boot if the drive is turned on at boot.

My files attached in hope of getting to the bottom of this problem.


Hi. . .

Ran the dump -

Bugcheck = 0x0000000a (0x30854df5, 0x2, 0x0, 0x82285a75), probable cause NT - ntkrpamp.exe - the Microsoft NT Kernel module.

0xa = indicates that a Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory when it should not have.

Knowing that NT caused this BSOD is of no big help as the offending driver is hiding under NT.

My suggestion is to run the driver verifier. Bring up an Elevated command prompt -
START | type cmd.exe | right-click on cmd.exe uptop under programs | Run as Administrator | type verifier & hit enter - the Verifier screen will appear | do the following:


1. Select 2nd option - Create custom settings (for code developers)
2. Select 2nd option - Select individual settings from a full list.
3. Check the boxes? Special Pool
? Pool Tracking
? Force IRQL checking4. Select last option - Select driver names from a list
5. Click on the Provider heading - sorts list by Provider
6. Check ALL boxes where Microsoft is not the Provider
7. Click on Finish
8. Re-boot

The driver verifier will stress your system out and may cause its own BSOD w/ a 0x000000c4 bugcheck - which should contain the driver name causing problems. Should this happen, when the system re-boots, it may take you into into the recovery partition - perform a Windows System restore.

While the driver verifier is doing its thing, allow it to continue, but if you find the system to hard to handle, bring up the eleva... Read more

Kernel-Power 41 simply means the PC was powered down manually either by the user unplugging the power or pushing the reset power button.

I ran 7 of the dumps all show being caused by NETIO.SYS which is a Windows networking driver, it appears to me it's calling for a stop because of interference from your Emsisoft Firewall program(fwwfp764.sys), try disabling it and using windows firewall.

This is quite a descriptive post so hope it helps.

I had an old AMD which I upgraded about 2 weeks ago to this new best, all I didnt change was the hard drive and the graphics card had been on the AMD about 3 weeks with no problems at all. Not long (hard to recall) after I put new system together I started failing on bootup with the "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" error. I've looked up possible causes and tbh im at a dead end...

Cores are less than 25C, GPU around 50C.

Ram was RMA'd found faulty and new recieved but error still occured.

LAN disabled and still occured.

I can boot into safe mode not problems it seems, afterwards if i try to boot into normal mode it usually (not always) works and the pc will work fine for the duration, then when I am finished for the night and turn the pc off (at the plug) when I wake up and switch on it starts failing on bootup again. Usually to get through I optimize BIOS or load fail-safe defaults, go into safe mode, restart normal and it loads.

Oh, the PC can re-boot fine once on, it seems like I have to turn off for a while the error occurs again.

Any ideas anyone? I've been told I should look at RAM latency and voltages in BIOS and input them manually but im not completely sure how and dont want to melt my PC heh...

I was also curious if the fact I can boot into safe mode mean that it's unlikely a hardware issue also that perhaps it's driver/software related?

Hi there,

I recently had a new PC built for me (specs at the bottom) and have been getting BSODs in Windows 8 64bit over the past two days with the error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL in ntoskrnl.exe.

My minidumps from the past two days are here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/le3fv3rib7eq435/Minidumps.zip

I only seem to get this BSOD when copying large amounts of data from one hard drive to another (whether from external/internal to internal) so it seems to be when I'm stressing the data read/write. I have a Kingston HyperX SSD 480G and I'm not sure if this the problem (I checked to see if there was a newer firmware for the SSD, but it's up to date). However, I get BSODS even when I'm not copying to the SSD drive so not sure this is the cause.

I tested the RAM with memtest64+ and ran 5 passes with no errors found.

Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated as I'm a bit of a loss what the problem is.

A:[SOLVED] BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL in ntoskrnl.exe (Windows 8 64 bit)


I"m seeing lots of memory corruption, no specific dumps pointing to any obvious software or driver issues at this time. You mentioned you ran Memtest86+ for 5 passes. Although a tad annoying, I would recommend running it again for no less than ~8 passes. This will take quite some time, so I recommend doing so before work or sleep, and checking when you get home or wake up.

Might just be a coincidence at the time of crash, but a 3B dump mentions nvlddmkm.sys which is the nVidia video driver. I would recommend updating to the latest nVidia drivers if you haven't already, and if you are on any beta release drivers, please rollback to the latest NON-BETA driver.

See if there are updates for the following drivers:

CBDisk - Wed Jan 13 04:15:47 2010 - CBDisk.sys

(CallbackDisk Virtual Storage Driver)

dc3d - Wed May 18 04:07:24 2011 - dc3d.sys

(Filter Driver for Identification of Microsoft Hardware Wireless Mouse and Keyboard Device Models - Microsoft IntelliType Pro / IntelliPoint).

HECIx64 - Thu Sep 22 12:38:44 2011 - HECIx64.sys

(Intel Management Engine Interface)

While you're on that journey, ensure your BIOS is updated to the latest version as well as any other drivers via Asus' website.

I was out searching the net and noticed you were working with another person that had a similar issue that I am having. Basically I just built my new machine and I am experiencing same issue (Stop 0xA). I following the steps in the other thread and attached the zip file. Here are some specifics of my issue:

- Newly built machine:
- ECS GF7050VT-M motherboard
- 2 gigs of RAM total (2 1 gig sticks of DDR2 PC2-6400 Crucial RAM)
- Intel Core 2 Q6600 Quad 2.4ghz
- Sata DVD/R
- IDE boot drive
- Vista Ultimate SP1

I purchased it at Fry's and they told me I should stick with the 667 memory but they were out, so I went w/the 800 (it is supported, but they were VERY hesistant going with it). Also, I noticed in the motherboard book (after many BSODs) that I should change a memory setting in the BIOS, but this didn't work. Lastly, I rebuilt the machine today and only installed what I felt were critical device drivers (network, video, sound) from the install CD, since the first time it BSOD was when I was using the driver installation disk with the motherboard. Well, I am still having the issue :(.

Fry's now has the slower memory in stock so I am going to swap it out on Tuesday. Also, I ran Microsoft's memory test and all was fine (but I still believe that the slower memory with this board might help).

Let me know what you find with my dump.


A:[SOLVED] Irql_not_less_or_equal - BSOD on newly built machine

Hi. . .

Were you a Boy Scout like I was... you know the be prepared motto and all? !!

Nice job on gathering the files.

I show 2 dumps from today - Sept 7.

I quickly looked at WERCON and found -

9/7/2008 6:49 PM Application Error Faulting application svchost.exe, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x47918b89, faulting module RPCRT4.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x4791a751, exception code 0xc0000005, fault offset 0x0003cc1f, process id 0x380, application start time 0x01c91113f6a9a22f.
I see that svchost failed with a 0xc0000005 exception - a memory violation and occurred today - Sept 7 2008 - 1849 hours. The faulting module was rpcrt4.dll a driver for the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) API, used by Windows applications for network and Internet communication. Is this when your system was first turned on?

I can't say that is is a physical memory issue, but it can be of course. A 0xc..5 exception usually indicates that a driver attempted access of a memory address that it should not have. But this is a Microsoft driver in a brand new install, so I doubt highly that this driver is the cause.

I will need to look at the dumps to see what else I can learn.

In the interim, I would like for you to do this -
Run the driver verifier as it may provide additional information in future dump files. Bring up an Elevated command prompt -

1. In your loaded drivers list, dtsoftbus01.sys is listed which is the Daemon Tools driver. Daemon Tools is a very popular cause of BSOD's in 7/8 based systems. Please uninstall Daemon Tools. Alternative imaging programs are: MagicISO, Power ISO, etc.

2. Uninstall KProcessHacker as it's likely conflicting with TrueCrypt.

I only get this error when I try to play a game (Sid Meier's Pirates!). I don't have any other games at the moment, so I can't tell if it's just this game or games in general. I did everything in the "Before you post minidumps", thread to no avail. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks.

A:IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0xD1 Error while playing game only... Minidumps


I've investigate your minidump. It crashes when it executes pirates.exe. Is it an on-line game? The culprit maybe ZoneAlarm. De-install ZA may resolve the problem.

I ordered these games for Xbox one. I had toyed with downloading through the store but baulked when I saw they would be 50 gig approx each downloads. So I've ordered physical copies through Amazon instead. I'm pretty unfamiliar with Xbox and wondered what will happen when I install them. Will they install fully and then hit me with mega huge patch downloads? Should I of just downloaded them fully in the first place - I think the install sizes of games are pretty ridiculous these days but these games have got such rave reviews i decided to go for them. But I am concerned about spending a whole evening downloading and monopolising the family's internet

A:Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1

It most cases when it comes to modern games there will be some downloading and patching no matter what. Especially for games that have multi-player components. I can't say for sure if it will take you a full evening or not, though.

The game runs like crap. My guy skips around a ton and it freezes a bit between skips. on the first parts of training where you're just running and doing some wall runs its fine.
I BELIEVE I have all the proper drivers for everything. Like I said tried changing overclock and it did the same thing, lowered settings still does it. It's even doing it in training so don't think its my internet speed. I'm using ESET NOD32 Antivirus. please help

A:Titanfall not running

Welcome to TSG!

If I heard right Titanfall is an online game, no single player mode.
The skipping could be lag from the servers, or your connection. I see the 27mbps, but that doesn't really translate to gaming. Games require two way communication, that is where the bottle neck can happen.
Being a new game I would expect some lag issues, lots of people playing I bet. Might be server issues they haven't found yet too.

Have you tried playing at different hours of the day? Off "peak" as it were.
Edit: Found this too, http://n4g.com/news/1471374/titanfa...d-real-fix-for-xbox-live-coming-later-tonight
Seems there are server load issues. Might be fixed but who knows.

So, after I'v been playing WoW for around 1-15 mins I get the BSOD. It's never happened while doing anything else. Started playing WoW again about a week ago which is when I first noticed it.

Computer Specs:
? OS - Windows 7
? x64
? Windows installation is self installed (Custom built computer)
? Student version
? Gfx card is a few months old, power supply a bit longer than that. Other parts are a few years old.
? Installation is around a year old I'd say.
? Phenom 9600 @ 2.3 GHz (Not overclocked)
? ATI 5770 (Also not overclocked)
? GA-MA770-DS3 (The revision without am3 support)
? Power Supply brand is Topower...unclear of wattage, and model number isn't there.

I usually try and fix problems myself, but can't figure this one out, so any help would be much appreciated.

All 0x124, Hardware BSODs.

Remove Gigabyte's Easy Tuner 6 and AMD's Overdrive just in case they are the cause (I have seen both cause similar BSODs before), then run some hardware tests.
