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.

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.

Thanks,

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.

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:

Code:

I've been getting these at random times, it'll do it no matter what programs I'm running. 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.

After looking at your mini, its a hardware issue.

Have you overclocked your cpu?

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.





Processor may be overclocked!

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.

These are the errors that BlueScreenView gave me:

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 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?

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 all. This is my first post on the forums so please guide me along.

Toshiba PORTEGE R380 x64 based processor, 64bit OS.

Before wanting to post on the forums, I tried to solve the solution using a couple of methods. The first was to check if there was malware on my computer. After using malwarebytes it seemed to work, but it was just a while before the next bsod came. I then tried to use the driver verifier to see if it was a BIOS problem but that ended in a endless BSOD loop too. Next, I downloaded WindowsDebuggingTools and tried to analyse the crash dump files for myself but I couldn't really understand and hoped that someone could shed some light and educate me on how to solve this problem.

oh and fyi, while typing this thread my computer bsod on me again. Just goes to show unpredictable the current state of this laptop is. Sometimes by just using spotify or surfing google chrome only, it will just bsod. I really appreciate the help of everyone. thank you.

I have attached both the Minidump and the system data log in the temp folder.

Many thanks in advance!!

Best wishes,
Pie

Hi guys,
I've had a media center PC that I've had ongoing BSODs with. I really don't know what it may be, but I have an awful feeling that it might be the TV Card. I have tried to keep all the drivers up to date but I can't stop the BSODs. If anyone could help me identify what's causing it I'd really appreciate it.
I've attached the dump files as instructed for the last three BSODs.
Thanks Again

2 things were blamed in the dmp. They are your Realtek Ethernet driver and ATi video driver, please download and install fresh copy of them (make sure to remove all trace of old driver before updating new one).

It just happened while i was watching a video on youtube.

Anyone know what is wrong?

A:BSOD IRQL not less or equal

Has this happened before? If so, how often?

This is related to an Nvidia display driver. Do you know which Nvidia card you have?

You can probably solve this by uninstalling the Nvidia display driver and all related software from your system and then downloading the latest version for your device from the Nvidia site

Hi,

This BSOD happens to me for the 3rd time this past few weeks. This happens when I turn on my laptop from a Hibernate state. Please take a look into it as I would like to know the cause of this and a fix for it, thanks.

? OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ? Windows 7
? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64
? What was original installed OS on system? windows 7
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)?
Basically an alien-ware that came installed with the os. It had a faulty hard disk which they replaced and i had to reinstall using the cd they gave me.
? Age of system (hardware) around 2 years
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? 2 years and maybe a year on the age.
? CPU Intel core I7
? Video Card : Nivida geforce GT555M
? MotherBoard
? Power Supply - brand & wattage

I really dont know for the mother board and power supply but its an alienware m14x which i have not changed save for the hard disk that they replaced.

Yesterday i was downloading a torrent and browsing google when suddenly this Blue screen happened. I included a picture in the zip file of the blue screen it self. 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..

A:BSOD, IRQL less than or equal.

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.

Yes, another one..I saw a lot of similar posts (in many forums), but not all the error codes are the same..I thought I'd show you the error codes I got and maybe you could help my figure out that's the cause. I'm running a Lenovo N500 laptop (1 year old roughly) with Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I get these BSOD screens only when I'm in my dorms, when I'm at home it doesn't happen..the only thing different is the network I'm connected to (I guess, everything else is the same). I don't know if that has anything to do with it, maybe it was worth mentioning.
I uploaded the files (a screenshot from the Problem Reports and Solutions with all the details, plus the files 'involved' or something..according to Windows. I'd really appreciate any help.

A:BSOD - irql not less or equal

Hi and welcome to TSF here is some info on your error
0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
(Click to consult the online MSDN article.)
Typically due to a bad driver, or faulty or incompatible hardware or software. Use the General Troubleshooting of STOP Messages checklist above. Technically, this error condition means that a kernel-mode process or driver tried to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) that was too high. (A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own.)

I get this a lot since a week or two ago. Any idea what this means?

A:BSOD IRQL not less or equal.

It is likely a memory issue, not just RAM. Try these tests untill a BSOD team member can help you.
Some hardware tests to run.

Graphics card:
Video Card Stress Test with Furmark

Hard drive(s):
Pick one for your HDD brand or use Seatools.
7 Free Hard Drive Testing Software Tools


RAM (memory):
This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Hey all,

Frequently I get a BSoD with the message IRQL less or not equal. I have only recently added
a Linksys wireless router. And I have no clue.....

Also the comp doesn't like to restart. I have to keep it off for about ten minutes or it will shut off when trying to restart. This has been happening for a while so I don't believe the two are related.

Windows XP home, 1.4 ghz, 512 mbram.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mark

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 all, I'm new to this forum so I guess I'll say what my problem is.

I have been blue screening very often, about once or twice every couple of days, but it only happens when I am doing something demanding like gaming. This has been going on for about half a year.

The last time it happened I noticed the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, I been reading up on it and I can't seem to find a concrete solution.

My system specs are:

Motherboard: ASUS M4N78-AM

Power Supply: Gigabyte 420W

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 810 2.6 Ghz Quad Core

RAM: Corsair XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB)

Graphics Card: Galaxy Nvidia G-Force 9800GT 1GB Low Power Version

Sound Card: Creative Blaster 5.1 VX

Hard Drives: Seagate Barracuda 320GB SATA2
Western Digital Caviar 1000GB SATA 3 Gb/s

CPU Cooler: Gigabyte Volar CPU with Copper Core and Aluminium Fins

Also if it helps I'm using a Logitech Classic 200 Keyboard and Razer Krait Gaming Mouse.

Any help would be appreciated!

A:BSOD: IRQl not less or equal, Help?

Hi -

Run Driver Verifier - Driver Verifier - Windows 7 & Vista (BSOD-related)

Driver Verifier needs to run 24 hours minimum or until it BSODs your system, whichever is less. Then . . .

Provide full system info - Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 & Vista

Regards. . .
