Preferred Solution: irql equal or not equal problem

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.)

Hi! I'm new to this forum...

I have a problem with windows xp (sp2). When I boot up windows, a blue screen appears. which says, that I have a problem with the si3112r.sys file. I removed 512 DDR RAM, and it worked for about 6 hours, then the same blue screen appeared. I uninstalled the silicon image raid controller, and again it worked for about 6 hours. Then I tried to repair my OS, but my mouse and keyboard stoped respounding, when the install asked to aprove the install of my network card. I tried 2 times, and the same thing happend. Then I thought, that maybe my old HDD is down, the same HDD where i have my OS installed. So i formated my newer disk and installed the windows xp OS, and again after 6 hours the same thing happens, the blue screen apears and says, that I have a problem with the si3112r.sys file. Please HELP , i realy don't know, what else i can do... And excuse my english, I'm from Slovenia.....

Answer:Irql equal or less equal, si3112r.sys

Hi Ghostbuster, welcome to the site (your English is excellent ).

The first thing I would suggest is to update the drivers for your motherboard from the Asus website:

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A7N8X-E%20Deluxe

Pick the IDE option and install the "Silicon Image Serial ATA drive" for WinXP. Hopefully that will work

Hello good people of the vista forums,

I need your help. I tried to no avail to solve this recurring bsod myself.
I've even replaced my Ram as a last resort but this didn't help either.

Please tell me what info you need.

I can tell you the problem only occurs while I'm running two or more instances of flash or playing video games.

I have no money to get myself a new computer yet so I just need to fix this problem to get through another couple of months. I've had this problem for maybe over a year...

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Hey I've been having weird system hangs and the system has stopped responding. I was burning a CD and I found the infamous (for me anyway) DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error message. It also talked about usbuhci.sys, whatever that is. So how do I resolve this. It seems the hangs are only during high-level things (games, cd burning, etc)

Answer:random IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL problem with netio.sys on the screen.

Hello larrys2006, Welcome to Sevenforums!

First of all, my main recommendation is for you to perform a complete reinstall. You have a ton of undesirable programs and are most likely infected. What I would do is perform a cleaninstall. Below will be a few links to help you out should you choose this route.

Backup your Data! Here is a great thread with lots of recommendations for backing up
What to Back Up Before Clean Reinstall?
Optimize your HDD/SDD for reinstall (Only Step 1 is necessary -- THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA FROM YOUR HARDDRIVE )
SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation

Clean Install
Clean Install Windows 7

If you want to perform a Clean install and you are having doubts or fears, feel free to ask any questions and we will help you through it.
________________________________________________

Now, On to your BSOD. If a Clean Install is not what you want to do, the following will be very time consuming as we need to ensure you are not infected.

It appears that Internet Download Manager is causing your problems. It is not a recommended or necessary program so the best course of action would be to remove it. I also recommend you remove several other programs as well. Lastly, running two anti-virus programs is not recommended. It does not help in any way and is actually more harmful than helpful.

Answer:Blue Screen of Death - Problem with utorrent (Driver IRQL not less or equal)

Hi
 
As a first step, i would recommend uninstalling "utorrent" and installing "Bitlord" as a test. Many users reported that switching to "Bitlord" solved their BSOD issue.

We here at BC strongly recommend to not downloading torrents as it will put your system security at risk.

I have no idea what is going on recently as I've been having the more important BSOD of the Kernel error.

1 - chkdsk /f, no issues.
2 - Eset SS virus scan or possible hijacking, no issues.
3 - Driver verifier with only top 3 options check selected for non-MS drivers, no issues.
4 - Software drivers always up to date as well with Windows Updates.

If you can solve my issue I'll be very grateful.

Windows 7 Ult. x64 Retail
ATi Radeon 5800 Series (10.10 drivers as 10.12 has many bugs)
Asus P6T Deluxe (bios 2101)
Corsair Dominator Ram

System is about a few years old and OS install was around 4-5 months from last reformat.

Note 1: I've noticed BSOD of the last one aka Kernel BSOD happend during me sleeping and my monitor went into power saving mode after 10 minutes during my sleep. I woke up to turn on my monitor then from the monitor sleep and noticed on my OSD keyboard display that the time on the clock has frozen and the screen remained black so I had to reboot.

Note 2: Seems most of my BSOD happenings seem to correlate to ntoskrnl.exe a lot so I'm not sure if it is a corrupt ntoskrnl.exe? I mean I can boot into windows fine.

Note 3: Running virus scan or possible deep scan will bsod my pc right when it starts scanning windows backupfiles located in Windows\Winsxs folder for some reason after it scans a certain folder during the scan but differs from time to time and sometimes scans the folder successfully.

I turned off the computer and turned it back on, but after the opening screen (with the bar and 3 green squares flowing across it) the Blue Screen comes back on. I did this like 5 times, and the blue screen keeps coming on. The computer doesn't even reach the Desktop.

I tried safe mode and that didn't work. However, the "Debugging mode" works which is how i am typing this right now.

Is there a virus in my computer?

How do i fix this?

btw I added a webcam to my computer, but I uninstalled it from the computer because it didn't work well
 

Answer:Irql not less or equal

Does the Blue Screens give any error codes and if so what are they? They often will give drivers as well. Give us those if you have them.

qHello Folks,

I recently bought a used HP Touchsmart 310 Pc with windows 7 Home Premium SP 1 from a family member and one month in the problems started. I was originally getting the bsod with the error "IRQ Not Less or Equal" every few days, and it became more frequent as time progressed. I notice it more so when watching streaming media or gaming, I could start the computer and watch hulu and it would happen just minutes after starting. This morning I booted into safemode and noticed an error in my device manager that the driver for "Consumer IR Devices" wasn't loading properly, so after several failed attempted windows repairs, finally running from the repair disk worked and the driver issue appeared to be rectified but I'm still getting the IRQL blue screen. I've looked at the event viewer and don't know much about this pc's past as I've only had it for a month or two, but any help would be greatly appreciated. I also noticed that there are only two minidump files, and it's blue screened much more than that recently. I've done a lot of reading about the error, and rather than chase down it might be this that or the other I'll ask the pros! Attached is my DM Log Collector File, thanks in advance!

Download the 13.9 driver from here then use AMD Uninstall Utility to remove all traces of your current driver, CCC etc. Reboot and install the 13.9 driver.



   Note
When installing choose 'Advanced' or 'Custom' (whichever option is available, just not Express) and uncheck everything except the video driver.

i am getting this error and i am not sure why. it started last week when a hard drive failed, so my stepdad got me a new one. he put it into my machine and sent me home with the windows xp cd to install. so this virgin hd, i tried to install xp on it and got this irql error or a page fault in nonpaged area error. i am looking at the irql error right now and it says:

the hd is a brand-new seagate 120gig hd, the pc itself is like an old compaq despro en. it's a p2 333. i'd tell you more about it but when i went to the compaq page to check for drivers i discovered that there are lots of models of this pc and nowhere on the case (or in the bios or anywhere else) does it say anything besides "compaq deskpro" and who knows what's been done to it since it came out in 1998 or whatever? it was working just fine for a really long time. my stepdad said the mobo might not be able to read such a large partition since the max size of partition the mobo takes is 4 gigs, so i created a 4 gig partition on which to install windows. it's totally failing.

um, yes. so...i've also tried to install 2 other os'es today, each time met with abject failure, but one was an alpha and the other one didn't dig the hot groovy usb keyboard action so i couldn't even install it. i'm back to windows and desperate to get this thing working before it ends up out the window onto some unsuspecting passer-by's head. any ...

I have a toshiba gaming laptop, Qosmio x875-q7190. It's been great for about 2 years but has lately been giving me blue screens on startup before I can login. Now If I let stay on the blue screen and just let the laptop sleep for a while, I'll open it up and it will be at the login screen as though there is no problem, using this I made the laptop access safe mode boot with networking and it works fine. I'm unsure what to do from here though, I've ran through the troubleshooting options (System restore, refresh etc) they give me errors on saying could not complete and nothing was changed. I ran through the drivers, everything seemed to be updated, and I tried to run memory diagnostic, but it also gave me an error like the other troubleshooting options.
I really do love this laptop and I'm committed to getting it fixed.
 

Answer:Irql not less or equal win 8.1

We do need the actual log file (called a DMP file) as they contain the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
We prefer at least 2 DMP files to spot trends and confirm the cause.
Please follow our instructions for finding and uploading the files we need to help you fix your computer. They can be found hereIf you have any questions about the procedure please ask

If you are using Blue screen view, who crashed, or a similar application, don't. They are wrong at least as often as they are correct

I have received these different errors since yesterday. On the blue screen:

1. A device driver has corrupted you memory pool

2. Driver IRQL no less or equal

3. NTOSKRNL.exe

The pc reboots by itself. shuts down by itself. then when I reboot the blue screen appears several times so I reboot 2 or 3 times before I can get in.

this happened after I downloaded a plugin/driver to watch hockey fights in windows media player. I tried to go to the last good known configuration, still happening, and im not sure what to do with verify.exe. Running win2k.
 

Answer:irql not less or equal

Do you mean "verifier.exe"?

Just run it either from start or a command line. Accept the prompts and defaults to verify non-microsoft drivers.

Be advised if it finds and disables a faulty driver you may need to reboot in Safe Mode and run:

verifier /reset

to get past the block.

Hello there,

For some reason I keep getting IRQL Less Than Equal blue screens when playing games. What I understand IRQL less than equal is normally a driver issue. I have tried software to update all my drivers using programs such as Magix Drivers.

Please check my dumps attached.

Thanks,

Answer:IRQL Less than Equal

Only one memory dump in the uploaded files - have you cleaned out the system recently?

Problem device in MSINFO32:

IOCBIOS ROOT\LEGACY_IOCBIOS\0000 This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed.


Likely to be part of an Intel Overclocking Utility. Please update this immediately.

MSINFO32 cites Kaspersky as the cause of your BSOD - let's see what the memory dump analysis says....
The memory dump analysis agrees and blames kl1.sys - a component of Kaspersky Internet Security.
Please do the following:

Hi everyone, this is my first post so I'm not that fond of the forum yet.

I keep getting BSOD Saying IRQL not Less but not equal. It only seems to be happening to my cpu when I am watching media such as YouTube. It runs for maybe five minutes then error code IRQL LESS BUT NOT EQUAL Shows up.

I've done some researching and downloaded WhoCrasehd and I got these reports:

The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your
system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by
another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.

Hopefully you guys can shed some light on these because I've grown tired of trying to find out what this is.

Hi,

I keep getting BSOD reboots when using Windows 7 Ultimate 64. It is bugging me now because I just lost my progress on a game and have many a time lost progress on a photoshop file (I know I should save often but can't do it every second!)

Anyway, it reports either IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL or BAD POOL HEADER. So many places online tell me to run a registry cleaner. I do not trust this advice.

I have run cmd sfc/scan now and it reported corrupt files and that it repaired them, is that the issue?

I have also uploaded the mini dumps from the last three crashes. Not sure if they are the right ones.

Can anyone help me please?

Answer:Irql not less or equal

Could you please fill in your system specs this might help the BSOD team to solve the problem. And please follow the BSOD posting instructions.

Quite curious how old your hardware is aswell. Had a quite similar problem aswell. And recently my HDD died.

And if you want to clean ur register i would recommend you CCleaner, Its a good free register cleaner. If you want to pay for a program i would recommend you TuneUp Utilitys. Thought this program does alot more then just regestry cleaning.

Memory corruption probably caused by a driver. Test the memory with memtest.

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.
Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot. Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

But the I still get BSOD while playing World of Warcraft after a few minutes, yet I have played GTA: Vice City without any problems. Old StarCraft does crash as well but only after like 20 mins of play.

Also is there any software you could recommend checking the integrity of the Video RAM or Processor? And would give a report even if it does cause another BSOD.

Answer:Irql not less or equal

Usually, this kind of problem is caused by GPU and/or CPU overheating. You could download HWMonitor or any of the other monitoring software and check it while you're playing.

When you get a BSOD, down at the bottom above where the countdown is going on, it usually states the faulting problem. Do you know what it says?

I'm asking because it's a lot of work going through all the log files.

Hi guys,

Recently started getting an IRQL not less or equal bsod stop error...

Seems to happen only when im using my O'Neil Thermal Printer.

Everytime the software: PrinterDemo, fails to print the .txt file i send to the printer, the application locks up and i have to restart my laptop and while restarting the system gives me the bsod error.

I dont think a mini dump is even being created as if i remember right when its dumping memory, a little % indicator is shown at the bottom of the bsod, but all i immediately see is: Memory dump complete.

Some details about my laptop/hardware:

Apple MacBook - 80GB Windows Partition

O'Neil Printer: Serial-USB Connector to allow me to use it as my mac doesnt have a serial port.

Driver for printer is updated and configured correctly, and the printer works most of the time, but there is just the odd occasion where it doesnt, and im afraid its going to, at one point turn into a serious issue.

-Any help/info would be appreciated.

-Thanks

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don?t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don?t Zip each one individually.

Hello!

I got a completely new PC since last winter:
Motherboard: ASUS P7H55D-M PRO
CPU: Intel Core i5 760
VGA: MSI R5770 HAWK
PSU: Corsair 650W

sometimes when I use my computer (not during games, or watching videos) I see the top of the screen is jagging and the screen goes black then I get a usual blue screen message: Computer is shut down to prevent etc. etc. Then when i reboot Windows after startup it's the same, but I get another blue screen now: IRQL not less or equal:

I'm not getting this message all the time, I got this 4-5 times and the first one was last week, when I have my PC since November 2010 and never had any hardware problems with it... I even changed to another VGA driver, but problem's same... Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!
 

Answer:IRQL not less or equal

This blue screen can be a number of things. It could be a driver conflict, or could be a bad piece of hardware. Being that it isn't something that you can replicate by doing a specific thing, the test that I have to see if it is a driver is a bit hard. If you want to give it a shot though, boot the system into safe mode and run as you normally would. If you don't get the blue screen then chances are it is a driver conflict in which you would need to go through drivers one by one, uninstalling and reinstalling until the issue stops. The other option would be doing a fresh install from scratch.

If you still get the blue screen in safe mode, it could be a hardware problem. If you haven't already, run a memory test like memtest86 (can be downloaded from memtest.org) right after you get one of these blue screens. If you fail, then I would take a look at the RAM.

This message started coming up this morning.  I have run all checks and all passed.  I have XP Pro.  I think it is a problem with a driver.  Will reloading  OS help?  If I can keep it stable long enough, will reloding BIOS help?

Sorry about my last thread, I didn't realise that SP2 was unsupported. I fixed it by upgrading to SP3 anyway xD

So since I 'fixed' my problem with ndis.sys that was stopping my wireless adapter from working (by upgrading to sp3, as i said), I've been getting an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Bluescreen. The hex values are:

0x0000000A (0x0000019C, 0x0000001C, 0x00000000, 0x804FFA14)

I can run fine in Safe Mode, all my drivers check out normally, the debug program I got from Microsoft's website didn't work and the minidumps are all crypted. If anyone has an idea, that's greatly appreciated ^^

hi,
somebody has got to help me out on this..i've been struggling with this prob for over 2 weeks now.
The prob is that whenever i start up my computer for the first time in the day or atleast after 5 hrs it was last shut down, the computer reboots on its own a couple of times , or i've to reboot it a couple of times when this error message on blue screen comes up..it reads as
a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to computer
IRQL_NOT LESS_OR_EQUAL
technical info:
***STOP: 0 X 0000000A(O X OOOO3AFE, 0 X 00000002, 0 X 00000000, 0 X 804E30C2)
thats wat come on the blue screen...sometimes ot comes as DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL....with a different string in the technical info line..
my basic system config is
win xp pro
80gb hard disk
512 mb ddr ram in 2 cards
geforce4 mx
the second ram of 256 was brought recently...i thought it could be that causing the prob, but i ran a couple of memory diagnostic tests that say it was good....
help me out
 

Answer:Irql Not Less Or Equal

I wouldn't trust the Ram tests, the only surefire way to check your ram is to swap out sticks.

I would first start by removing the one you bought recently, and see how it goes. If it seems ok, do the same with the other stick.

hi

Since 4 days i got a problem with my windows crashing. I get bluescreen which says IRQL_not less or euqal. It also says something about saving dumped memory in the blue screen, thats all i could figure out of it.

It just startet after I set up windows 4 days ago because of some errors and a stupid trojan which was on my pc. Formated and deleted partitions, set up new, installed all drivers, programms etc. At first everthing was fine all was working perfectly. Then suddenly 1 day later this error apeared. Well it actually seemed to have apeared after i tried to install atitools which wouldnt work. I deinstalled it, no change. Then i set up windows 7 new, i formated and deleted the old partitions. Still no change, as soon as i run either firefox or a 3D game the bluescreen sometimes apears. Set it up new again, installed all drivers everything etc. still no change.

Since i read that IRQL bluescreen is often related to drivers i installed all new that could be related. Direct x, graphics, mainboard, checked windows updates to really have the NEWEST... still i get this bluescreen.

To my system:

Windows 7 home premium 64x
Geforce 8600 GT
6GB ddr2
mainboard is: Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H(uses Realtek drivers)
Anyone got some ideas or solutions? thanks for replies.

Answer:IRQL not less or equal please help me

If it's not a memory leak, (try running memtest from BIOS), It may be a conflict with the drivers you installed and the drivers windows 7 installed. Check your system information for problem devices and device manager for duplicates of the same device. I think there's a good chance you will find something there

Hey all, it looks like I've posted on the wrong place, so I'll post it here as well;

Initial post:
Greetings,

Here I am once more with a new problem. I had a good spell of 2 years or so without any problems, but alas time has come when I managed to crash my system once more.

Things you will be wondering about;

1- What exactly is the problem?
Well the problem is that whenever I start my computer, it takes 10 times more to start Windows 7 and when it starts, I constantly get Blue Death Screen message which headlines; IRQL NOT EQUAL OR LESS.

2- What did you change to cause such a problem?
Now these are all just speculations for I cannot be sure what caused the problem. My computer was working fine only an hour ago but there is more to it; About 20 hours ago I received a message from Windows 7 stating that it located a virus of sort. So I told the program to delete it, afterwards it asked me to restart but I've been busy with something so I didn't.

About an hour ago or so it said the same thing, only this time there were two virus type of things. (Btw I'm not sure if it's a virus per sa but more like backdoor, I can't recall the names) Anyhow I told it to erase them and then I again didn't restart, instead I installed a new game. When the game was installed I was like, fine then time to restart the pc.

Ta da! Blue screen, IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL. I kept the pc on just to see if this was a constant problem, as it turns out, it was indeed a constant problem. ... Read more

Answer:IRQL Not Less Or Equal

Now that I've read the posting instructions for this set of problems here is the new set of information;

? OS - Vista/ Windows 7 ? Win 7 Home Premium
? x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? 32-bit
? What was original installed OS on system? This one: Win 7 Home Premium 32 bit
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? It is an OEM version.
? Age of system (hardware) 1.5 years I think
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? It wasn't reinstalled
? CPU - Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8400 @ 2.66GHz 2.67GHz
? Video Card - ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series
? MotherBoard - FOXCONN G41MXE series
? Power Supply - brand & wattage | Can't quite open my computer or the guarantee will be removed.

Yeah if I open my computer's case, there is this little sticker and it'll go off. Once that happens the computer's guarantee is considered invalid for the manufactorer can say you opened your computer's case and damaged the said hardware.

Hi Meatus,

Please visit Windows Update and install every update available, it may take a couple of times to get them all.

Please remove the software of Gigabyte and Advanced SystemCare 8, these (pre-installed) software is known for causing BSOD's.

Please move some files from the D partition to increase the free space to at least 10-15%.
Every partition needs at least 10-15% free space so Windows can do its thing in the background.
   Warning
Less free space could cause BSOD's .

Yeah, I'm one of those guys with that problem.

I've looked everywhere, and have used iolo System Mechanic and cleaned my computer up, but the problem persists.

It only happens when I go to image heavy sites such as Kotaku, DeviantArt, Flickr, and sometimes Newgrounds, it also comes when I try to start Civilization V through Steam. These sites sometimes work afterwords, after a very long (<2 hours) of operation, but usually just end up sending my computer to Blue Screen hell with the error "ISQL_Not_Less_or_Equal"

Also, the file it refrences is called "netr70.sys"

Now I don't want to do anything drastic (re-format my hard drive, complete system restore, or replace my RAM or other computer parts) until I'm absolutely sure that there's no other way.

Some background information:

My computer is a Compaq Presario SR5152NX, and the only thing I've changed is my graphics card to an ATI Radeon 5750, one of my Ram sticks to a 2 GB, and my power supply.

The problem existed before I changed my ram stick, and I only changed one ram stick, I have 2 in total, one came with the computer, the other I switched for a better one.

I've had this prob with other versions of windows especially on newer high end systems which ended up needing a BIOS update to correct the situation however sometimes it was due to a bad memory stick..not necessarily bad but some portion that windows is trying use durring install but might normally not be accessed is hit and windows installer chokes (windows the OS has no prob with it in the end).

Try taking out all the mem chips and replacing one by one..verifying they count up on screen durring boot and display properly in bios...flash bios to latest version,...then pick just one to insert durring the install...if same..try diff single stick...also disconnect any unecessary devices like printers or add in cards, etc to reduce the possibility of some freak memory address or IRQ conflict for good measure

Hello @Davidpierson? There are many causes for this sort of error. You could spend a lot of time going back and forth troubleshooting this by searching the Windows logs and having someone go over them for you until you finally find a solution. Only to end up having to reset the PC back to factory half the time anyway. So I would just restore the laptop back to Factory Settings now and be done with it.HP PCs - Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 10) | HP® Customer Support Back up any files you need first.Then after reinstalling Windows, only update Windows, do not install other programs for a while. Run the laptop to see how it goes.One by one add any other programs. Do not install more than one Anti virus program. Personally I only use Windows Defender, nothing else. If after a reset its still blue screening, you need to contact HP Support for a warranty issue.Contact HP Worldwide | HP® Official Site Does this help?

Hi!
My computer had 300 something mb's of ram, i we got another 256. I installed it, giving us a grand total of 640mb. Anyway, shortly after installing my computer began spontaneously restarting. I did some googline and turned off the automaticaly restart after sys error option. Of course the error happened again, except now I got to see the blue screen error which said something about IRQL not less or equal. Does this have something to do with the new 256mb of ram installation? Should I pull it out? THanks!

Answer:IRQL Not less or equal

Can you post the complete error message here?

To answer your own question about whether the new ram installed is causing the problem... pull it out... and see if things get better... if they get better, this means it is probably the RAM. But the error message would help everyone diagnose your problem better.

How to find and post your Minidump Files:

My Computer > C Drive > Windows Folder > Minidump Folder > Minidump Files.

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time. You can Zip up to five files per Zip; if you only have one or two you don?t need to zip them, just attach as is. Please do us a favor and don?t Zip each one individually.


* We'll read them for you and take it from there.

I have created a new minidump with the driver Verifier on.
Anyone know how I can get it analysed to find out what driver is in error?

Hey!

Ran into an error when trying to install Windows 8.1 on my new computer. I just finished putting it together.

Operating System: Windows 8.1

Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Extreme ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Processor: Intel Core i7-4770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
GPU: 2 x nVidia GTX GeForce 770 SLI
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler
Storage: Samsung 840 Pro Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk, Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Networking: Asus PCE-N53 802.11a/b/g/n PCI-Express x1 Wi-Fi Adapter
Power Supply: Corsair Professional 850W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply
Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer


When it crashes: Right when it gets to the 'Preparing Devices' after restarting for the first time during the Windows 8.1 installation.

What I have tried: Loading chipset drivers from the CD that came with the motherboard and installing them onto the partition during the drive selection window. I have also tried changing the BIOS selection.

I just put the computer together, any help would be greatly appreciated. I am unable to provide much more information beyond this.

Thanks,

Matt

Answer:IRQL not less or equal

This is usually down to a RAM issue or a device driver issue.

check the RAM with memtest86 and make sure all your drivers are up to date and installed

Hello,

I have been getting the Blue Screen Of Death with the message 'IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL', almost every time I quit 'Internet Explorer'. It never happens when I am not online using desktop programs and games etc. It seems to have started when I installed a broadband router via ethernet cable. I'm guessing it must be a driver or IRQ conflict, but I'm not sure. I have recently replaced the memory with new ram, but that hasn't solved it. I am about to install a wireless router to see if that can solve the problem, but I would greatly appreciate any help with this annoying problem.

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.

Answer: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.)

Hey all,

I've been on this HP Pavillion running W7 since February, with no BSOD's. Recently, about once a week, I would get the following error after loading up my desktop for a few seconds:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: a

BCP2: 0000000000000002
BCP3: 0000000000000001
BCP4: FFFFF80002C91A88
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Product: 768_1

I've done some reading and it seems that this might indicate a hardware error?! I am absolutely terrified of opening my box as I'm extremely clumsy and manage to mess everything up when it comes to hardware. But I do want to fix this problem, especially if it will screw me over later on, or get worse...

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

Many thanks in advance!!

Best wishes,
Pie

at random times usally relating to the wifi adaptor i get an IRQL LESS OR NOT EQUAL error
 

Answer:IRQL less or not equal error help!!!

It's a driver issue. Make sure you have the latest possible driver from your wireless card's manufacturer. If possible, try to find out what chipset that wireless card is using; you might be able to find newer drivers that are more reliable and resolve those problems with the so-called "reference" drivers for most wireless cards.

Atheros, Broadcom, Intel... those are the 3 big ones for wireless card chipsets now - meaning the chips on the card are probably made by one of those 3 companies even if the card says D-Link, Linksys, Netgear, etc on it.

Intel makes their own chipsets and the cards too so they are pretty easy to spot since it'll say Intel all over the wireless card - they only make mini-PCI cards that mount inside laptops anyway.

Hope this helps...

ps
If you have a QX6700 as you say in your sig, it's a Core 2 Quad, not a Core 2 Duo.

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

A while back my laptop began showing the 'blue screen of death' seemingly randomly, getting more and more frequent until it wouldn't turn on at all; i sent it to a computer technician who said that the RAM was hanging out but that shouldnt affect much, otherwise it was pretty much dead. I sent it to the manufacturer and they replaced the motherboard under warranty (but said they couldnt boot up, so i should reinstall windows, which i did). I got it back a few days ago but already the blue screen has begun again; once it stayed on long enough to see the message 'DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS THAN OR EQUAL'- i saw somewhere that this might be to do with the RAM? Can I fix this or do I need to contact the manufacturer again? Thanks

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.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.
