Windows 7: Bsod: Irql_not_less_or_equal

23 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Bsod: Irql_not_less_or_equal

After much research, i've honestly come up with nothing. I am an above-average computer user with a lot of knowledge when it comes to these things, but this one has me stumped. I just built this computer less than three weeks ago, with the two weeks giving no problems but now I get a BSOD every 5-15 minutes (Sometimes it never does it, sometimes it does it whenever). Never had a problem before. NOTE: My USB NIC doesn't support 64bit computers, so I had to use a driver from another company (same chipset). Never had a problem in the past though with 64bit OS! Don't believe this is problem because has crashed before even when not using internet.

My actual USB Stick: Belkin Wireless G MIMO USB
Driver: RaLink USB 2.0 Stick Driver (Driver came with Windows)

~Win7 64 Bit Ultimate Retail
~AMD Quadcore Athlon XII 3.1 GHz
~4GB DDR3 Ram
~HD5770 GPU
~550 Watt PSU

Solutions i've tried:
~Windows Memory Test (Nothing wrong)
~Disabling onboard video and audio
~Reseating RAM

My CPU temperature is between 30-40C.
Graphics driver up to date.
Crashes even in SAFE mode.
Reinstalled Win7, worked for a day, then crashed again.

Wondering if its a program I use or hardware.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit

Just received a different bluescreen error with the code:

TCPIP.SYS 0x000000D1. Is this referring to my network adapter? And if so, how would I resolve this.. there are no drivers for Win7 64 bit for my USB dongle.

(Sorry for double post, running late for work when received this error)

I recommend that you install these updated Realtek Ethernet drivers: Realtek

If that doesn't work, I recommend that you purchase a new wireless card that is compatible with Windows 7. You can also try using Vista drivers, if you don't want to purchase a new one unless you have to.

BSOD - irql_not_less_or_equal
Hello! I've been here before with almost the same system as last time. This time I have a new GPU, and I swapped because I had a BSOD-free month or so and so I didn't think it would be a problem as I thought my "home cures" had worked. So I reinstalled windows to clean my computer from trash...
