Preferred Solution: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL(Bsod the past 2 days multiple times)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.

Hello,
I built this desktop approximately 2 years ago, but only just recently started experiencing BSOD at seemingly random times. The system hangs for a couple seconds, then goes blue and tells me "Driver IRQL Not Less Or Equal". I re-installed OEM Windows 7 Home Premium x64 about a week ago to try and clear up any problems, thinking it may have been a naughty program causing the BSOD, but in the past couple days it has crashed multiple times.

I haven't installed any new hardware (RAM, GPU, CPU, HDD) whatsoever. The only thing that has changed is that I'm using a USB wireless receiver, specifically an Encore ENUWI-2XN42, plugged in to the back of my computer.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I ran Memtest+86 earlier today, and it did not report any errors. I then tried to run the extended scan and it reported one error about 3% in, but then would hang consistently at 21% during three separate attempts.

I have attached the kernel dump that I retrieved with the program recommended by the forum. Thank you in advance for your help, I'm at wit's end.

Hello everyone,

The BSOD appears at random times, at random intervals even when not doing anything. I updated my sound driver since my computer often makes a very disturbing sound before starting memory dump. This did not help however. I bought the computer in its entirety less than 2 years ago from a professional computer store.

Please, please help.

EDIT: in case it matter, it happens when playing a game, watching a youtube video or after it got rebooted and I had done nothing yet.
EDIT2: I also did a virus scan that came up empty.

I don't remember for sure if it said ndis.sys, but I'm almost positive it was.
Anyways, I get this BSOD at random times, it usually happens while I'm streaming a video on YouTube or Netflix but I'm not sure if there's any correlation since that's what I'm usually doing.

I hear ndis.sys has to do with network drivers and can also cause latency issues, which might explain why I have a much more unstable ping while playing League of Legends, than my roommate who uses the same Wi-Fi.

Any help at all is greatly appreciated.

I use chrome, firefox, and SR ware iron for browsers. trillian for messaging. sometimes have open excel. and always have my sticky note up. i don't have a firewall or antivirus installed, as i'm pretty confident in my ability to not get viruses (i've had this system almost a year with no problems) but i do run housecall every couple months to be sure. i also ran a malware detector yesterday and it came up clear.
i did a system restore to the 14th, when i had installed the new java upgrade (java 7, update 17) and didn't solve the problem. i did a system restore to the 7th (automatic restore point) and didn't get the BSOD for about 12 hours so i thought it was fixed. now it's back.
at one point yesterday, i couldn't even boot windows without the BSOD - would just give me a continuous loop of "loading" "bsod" and options to start normally or run startup repair (which didn't help)
i used the SF diagnostic tool and attached the zip as instructed.

Hello,

This is a newish computer (Built in July 2009) and up until a few days ago I haven't had any issues with it. For whatever reason though, while I was playing the Starcraft 2 beta, it crashed to BSOD and had to restart. The event viewer was largely unhelpful in figuring out the problem, so I went ahead and ran a few utilities to make sure my computer is running as well as I think it could be (CCleaner, Spybot, etc., just to get rid of junk). All seemed fine until last night when I went to shut down my computer and it blue screened again, with once again an unhelpful event file entry.

I only have the minidump from last night's crash (when I shut down my system), as when I ran the utilities to clean up my comp the minidump from the first crash was deleted. Hopefully someone can help me out with this... Your time is much appreciated.

A:BSOD over past few days at random times

This is the second Starcraft2 issue I've seen today - I wonder if there's an issue with the beta? I'd check their forums to see if it's the problem.

BUT there is a driver on your system that's known to cause BSOD's - so I'd suggest that you replace the ASACPI.SYS driver (dated from 2005) with the most recent one available for your system from the Asus website ( ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt ). It'll be listed under the Utilities section and is known as the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit" .

The memory dump points to a memory corruption as the issue - so I'd try this free memory test just to rule that out: Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link).

More info on the STOP 0x7E error here: BSOD Index (Please note the "Usual causes" listed at the top of that section).

Beyond that, I'd wait and see if there were further BSOD's. If so, post the memory dump files and we'll move on from there.

Summary of the BSOD:

So I started playing TF2 again recently, so I've been using my brother's Xornet mouse. However, since I started using it, it would occasionally just stop working. Also, I've been getting BSOD screens that say "BUGCODE_USB_DRIVER" (I didn't have enough time to write down all the other information on that screen, but I changed the settings so it doesn't automatically restart, so I should have them if it happens again). The BSODs seem to happen at completely random times, except for one thing: they are always preceded by random "USB unplug noises" (i.e. the "da-dun" sound that you hear when you unplug a USB device). These noises can start happening up to 30 minutes before the BSOD, and they seem to happen at random times anywhere from 2 seconds to 3 minutes apart.

I followed some advice from another forum that said to uninstall your USB drivers, reboot, and allow windows to reinstall them. I did, and everything seemed to be going fine for awhile, but after using my mouse for a couple of minutes, it started happening again, and I got the BSOD. I don't know if the mouse is the cause or just coincidence.

This seems to happen whether or not I have USB devices plugged in. Dump file attached.

Hey everyone,

I am new to this forum, so please excuse me any layman propensities I might exhibit here.

So, I am lucky (at least that was my initial thought) owner of a brand new Asus Zenbook UX32LA, 256 SSD GB, 8GB Ram netbook with win8/64bit OS. After cofiguring the computer I ve been experiencing multiple BSODs pointing most probably to memory problems. It's really annoying, as the netbook is new and I tend to get at least to BSODs per day for the last 10 days just during net-browsing. I looked up the graphic drivers if they are up-to-date, but the problem still persists.

I would appreciate any help on this.

A:multiple BSOD - mostly "IRQL driver not less or equal"

The reports are incomplete. Please rerun the data collection app and let it run for at least 15 minutes (or until the app itself says that it's done). Then zip it up and upload it. In particular, I'm looking for the MSINFO32.nfo and systeminfo.txt reports.

Out of 16 memory dumps there were 8 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized. i5 and i7 processors can be "auto-overclocked" by using Intel's TurboBoost feature. If so, it's safe to disregard this caution.

Three days ago my water cooling failed (got up to 77C while gaming is when I noticed the problem as my CPU should not go over 62C). I decided to install an aftermarket heatsink instead of a new water cooling system ,and add a few more fans just to make sure my whole motherboard was getting plenty of air flow. I installed a Cool Mater Hyper Plus 212 heatsink. I followed the instructions, and looked at a few installation videos on my phone just to be sure. I'm pretty positive everything was done correctly including the thermal paste as my system has not gone over 45C while gaming even playing games on Ultra settings.

I got one BSOD late last night, after about 6 hours of it being on but no other problems after that. Today however I have been having BSOD issues the entire time at random times from just 5 minutes up to 2 and a half hours between BSODs. They have ranged from: NTSF_FILE_SYSTEM, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED, and SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

I have researched the errors on google all day and tried fixes for each one such as running memory diagnostic tool, deleting the old page info from memory and creating a new one, deleted all of my video drivers and reinstalled them, and I've even opened my case to make sure all my memory and cards are plugged in all the way.

Hi, sorry for posting again. This is just a follow-up from my previous post:
http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...ds-2-days.html

I ran memtest86+ (standard test) on my 2x2GB Team Elite DDR3 sticks. Testing each stick for 5 passes showed no errors. Later I'll be testing my other pair, 2x1GB GEIL DDR3. Since Ken mentioned that I should also test the slots, I'm thinking of testing the next 2 sticks on different slots, basically trying to hit 2 birds with one stone, testing both the stick and the slot at the same time.

I was wondering, If all the sticks have no errors and all slots are ok, is it safe to say that the problem might be software or driver related? Would doing a fresh install be a good solution to the problem?

Also, my mobo has an ATI chipset and I now have an nVidia GPU, will installing the ATI southbridge drivers conflict with the nVidia GPU drivers?

Thanks in advance!

I started getting consistent BSODs about 3 months ago, mostly when playing League of Legends. I did a clean update and install of my graphics card drivers (using DriverSweeper) and it fixed the problem for about a month. Three days ago I started getting BSODs roughly once per day, mostly from watching streams on twitch.tv. I ran Driver Verifier this morning and was able to force one in about 10 minutes. It was a 0x000000d5 (Driver_page_fault_in_freed_special_pool) that pointed to ntfs.sys as being the culprit. Later in the day I got another BSOD while gaming that was a x116 and it mentioned something about the display driver attempted to reset (pointed to dxgkrnl.sys). Note that over the past 3 days I encountered a BSOD 4 times and each time it gave me a different bug check code. Appreciate any help.

I updated every driver i can + windows update. I ran the device verifier that said called out smart defrag + demon tools which I removed both. It still has the same blue screen happening randomly. My sister about a month ago said the laptop shut down randomly and it might have been a blue screen but I ignored it since it really didnt happen to me at all.

I really dont know what else I can do..

Just to clarify , device verifier stopped giving a blue screen for demon tools and smart defrag. The IRQL is still happening , it's either fast or takes a while to happen.

Hello all! I'm running into an issue where my computer BSODs once a day, without fail and without a reliable trigger. The error I'm seeing is either an IRQL Not Less or Equal error, or a generic descriptionless BSOD (most are IRQL).

This is getting rather annoying, as it has a tendency to happen while I'm in the middle of things. I'd very much appreciate any help anyone could give me. :)

I've attached the files from the two utilities specified in the sticky, as well as the crash dump and XML file provided by the "Windows did not shut down properly" dialog upon reboot.

A:IRQL Not Less or Equal BSOD

Please remove any overclock and return the system to stock values in order to start troubleshooting. An overclock stresses the system in unpredictable ways, so the troubleshooting can't determine the causes. Overclocking can also damage components over time, so testing the system without the overclock will help to determine if there's a hardware problem. Once we've achieved a stable system without an overclock - then we can resume the overclock using accepted overclocking practices.

Perfmon shows that you don't have drivers installed for your NEC USB 3.0 controller, nor for your Marvell 91xx ATA controller. Please visit the Asus support website to download/install these drivers.

AMD Overdrive (also a part of EasyTune6) is a known cause of BSOD's in Win7 systems. Please uninstall this program.

Memory dumps point to hardware issues - which is typical of a failing overclock (but can also be due to AMD Overdrive). Remove the overclock and see if you continue to get BSOD's. If you do, then we've got to suspect damage to the system from the overclock and will start running hardware diagnostics.

okay so i've started getting frequent BSOD's with the error irql_not_less_or_equal, i think it was. sometimes it would say driver_irql... so anyways, i would have all followed the BSOD posting instructions but i get a BSOD every time i try to run the exe file. anyways i havent installed any new software or hardware recently, and i bought my computer roughly a year ago, and installed windows 7x64 around half a year ago. the original OS was vista. I used bluescreenview on my other computer (the one that doesnt work now) and it said there was an error with some file that started with nto and was a kernel or somewhat.
so i attached my most recent minidumps, hoping you guys could find something out using just that.
again, i wasn't able to follow the posting instructions, except give you the basic information and the dumps, because i guess a BSOD whenever i try to complete the other steps.

This problem mainly occurs when I try playing championship manager but has occured at other times when using my pc; I think it used to happen when I used the music library on win media player but has since stopped now that I have iTunes. I'm playing the game normally and suddenly I get a BSoD. These BSoD's have had many main error messages including MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, BAD POOL CALLER and a few others i forgot to write down, but more often than not the problem is Driver IRQL NOT LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO. I also get other errors not in BSoD's which do just crash the game, the main ones being something about bad vortual function call(?) or something about array access being out of bounds.

After some research I discovered that this could be due to bad RAM, but after buying new memory and trying different combinations of the 3 sticks I have I doubt this is the problem. However, furthur research shows that this could be due to an IRQ conflict, but I don't know how to find out if this is the case or how to solve it if i could find it out!

A:IRQL is not less than or equal BSOD

This seems to be one what I call a non-specific error dump. They just took a lot of kinds of errors and dumped them into the "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" heading. Below are the notes I've accumulated over the years. Sorry, it isn't much.
Stop error "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" usually indicates a driver incompatible with Windows. This message is usually accompanied by the name of an indicated driver file.

Most common causes:

1. Drivers incompatible with Windows
2. Digitally unsigned drivers
3. Bad Memory
4: Happens more often with gamers, probably because games push the hardware limits.

First, contact the manufacturer for Windows XP digitally signed drivers for the indicated device and check all other as follows:

The instructions below describe how to use the Windows XP Signature Verification tool (Sigverif.exe) to find unsigned drivers and verify device drivers in Windows XP. This information can be helpful for troubleshooting system instability, error messages, boot problems, etc.

To verify unsigned device drivers, do the following:

1. Click Start, click Run, type "sigverif" (without the quotation marks), and
then click OK.

2. Click Advanced.

3. Click Look for other files that are not digitally signed.

4. In the Look in this folder box, type "x:\Windows\system32\drivers" (without the quotation marks), where x is the letter of the drive where Windows XP is installed.

Hi,

After waking from sleep, my computer seems to cycle through a number of BSOD with the error message IRQL Not Less Than or Equal. While I've received this message with BSODs off and on for the past couple of months, it seems to be increasing in frequency and I'm not sure what the cause is. The most recent installed program is Age of Empires II. I'm currently using the computer in Safe mode.

Unfortunately, I don't know all the details about the system since it was created by someone else and I'm not very knowledgeable about computers myself. If you have any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it.

Hi and welcome
I hate to say this but 5 of the 7 were bugcheck1 caused by severe memory corruption. I dont know what application you tested with, for how long you ran it, or if you ran the memory sticks one at a time.

To test yours

Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Your memory dump analysis probably doesn't have the correct symbol path assigned. See Step E at this link: WinDbg Analysis Report

Also, as the memory dump that you posted was a STOP 0xA error, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

I have the BSOD and so far am only able to reboot in command line mode so I cannot zip the dump file. I am very rusty on my command line procedures. Can you suggest any way of approaching this problem? I can run a cd and dir/p to locate the dump file but I am not sure how to copy it in a way I can get it out of my BSOD computer so I can send it to you i.e dont know how to access windows or windows mail from the command line. I do have another computer that I am currently using but it is not connected to my BSOD computer. The one I am typing this on is using XP and the BSOD one is using Vista. Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I've seen a couple of these threads already and updated a few drivers, but Im kind of stabbing in the dark here so hoped you could help me get a little more specific!

I've started to use this PC for work so its essential I get this sorted!.. but there doesn't appear to be a pattern to the crashes, they just happen to often!

I've attached what I think to be the right files and my System spec is:

Windows 7 Professional x64bit - Full retail
Itel i7 920 @ 2.67Ghz 2.79Ghz (why is there 2 different numbers?)
6GB Ram
Computer can only be 1year to 18 months I guess

Thanks in adevance, hope you can help!

Cheers

Tom

Hi, Neki Here.

Because I just spent an hour typing my post and then my computer crashed forcing me to retype it, I'm going to make this short.
My computer started getting BSODs about a month ago, most of them saying IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL, but a lot others, the most recent one is "encountered an uncorrected hardware error", I am not very good with computers, but I've searched the web and none of the fixes seem to work for me.
I've restored my computer to factory condition hoping it would solve the problem, but after doing that 3 times, it did not, the problem presists, I have no clue what caused it, it's not a virus I know that for a fact.
The crashes happen randomly sometimes after 9 hours of using the computer, sometimes after 15 seconds. Most of the time I get BSOD and Stop Screens on start up, while trying to run System Restore and Start Up Repair.
I'm hoping someone can, at the very least, tell me what is causing the BSOD, because I also get "Driver IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL" I'm guessing it's a diver on my computer.
But the only driver I personally installed is my Linksys wirelessN Adapter, and I installed it about 2-3 years ago, when I first got the computer. I've already cleaned the computer of all dust to make sure that wasn't the problem.
Any help will be much appreciated.

So i've been having extremely random IRQL not less or equal BSOD. Basically i'm not certain exactly what this could be and i'm trying to find some advice on how to narrow it down. My system is windows xp professional sp3, m2n32 sli deluxe, corsair xms2 2 gb ddr2 , and a asus en7950 gx2. The only real problems I've had with this build is that maybe a year or 2 ago one half of the video card seemingly died. Any input is much appreciated.

This is my first time posting so not really sure if im doing it right but anyways my mothers computer started crashing a while back and i thought it was a virus but after multiple factory resets, the problem still persisted.

She would turn it on and about 10 seconds after it got to the desktop she would get the BSOD and it would go through multiple rounds of restarting and BSODs until it would finally stop and she could use the internet and then it would continue maybe a few hours later.

I'm not sure if she did anything to start the problem but she does like to download things without knowing what they are so i finally decided to just post the problem here. I dont really think there is a one stop solution so please forgive me if the problem has already been solved. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

-Only use the laptop on a hard surface with nothing blocking any of the vents.
-Use a laptop cooling pad if possible
-Blow out all vents with canned air (DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner or an air compressor, they can damage the components).
-Ensure that the fan comes on and is blowing air out of the vent (may not happen at startup, but should happen after using it for a while).

hello I am having a problem with my computer (which i know little about) that I would love to get fixed. I have a fairly new Lenovo T61 laptop and recently have had the error message in the blue screen of death IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL with error codes 00000016, 0000001B (maybe more or less 0) and 81CC91F0 and later on 81CC29F6 (same 16 and 1B). what can I do to fix this, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi. . .

The STOP error codes or bugchecks of 0x16 and 0x1b are very rarely seen. I will need additional information from you.

Please click on the Live SysInternals AutoRuns link below in my sig area. Save it to desktop. Then download the attached zip file and extract the lone batch file to your desktop. Go to your desktop, right-click on the batch file and select run as administrator. You will see the black "DOS" screen appear and scroll followed by the green status bar. It will take a few minutes to run. The output will be in a new folder found within your documents folder named TSF_Vista_Support. It is imperative that you download AutoRuns 1st - or the job will fail.

I'd also like a Vista System Health report in HTML format. Please do the following:
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd prompt (DOS) screen will appear - type the following:

Code:
perfmon /report
It will take about a minute to run... then save it as an HTML file - you will see the default HTML file extension when you go to save it.

One last item for now:
Run the driver verifier as it may provide additional information in future dump files. 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:

I got the IRQL not less or equal BSOD

I'm using a new Asus T100 that I recently purchased 6 days ago.

What I've done prior to the BSOD:

I had noticed that I was experiencing battery drain while the tablet was asleep, so I read that I should update the BIOS from 307 to 313 through Winflash. I did this two days ago.
It worked perfectly, and I noticed battery drain had dropped form 5% per hour when asleep (airplane mode on) to 1-2% per hour when asleep (Wifi on).
Today, I just put the tablet to sleep, took it out of the dock, wiped the screen using alcohol, and then placed it back onto the dock. I pressed the wake/power button, and the blue screen came up.

Here's the dump file

Since this is new, is this likely to reoccur? Should I go back to Bios version 307, or am I fine staying on bios version 313?
