till i know the cause of the problem
The IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD generally means two pieces of hardware (any two, really) just tried to fight for the same opportunity to be used that that given nanosecond. They negotiate hundreds of times a second and usually it's all find and dandy and you don't notice anything. This time, however, you did.
SOMETIMES, and this happened to me a couple weeks ago, I got the INLOE BSOD and it turned out to be Windows. I re-installed it (due to that and a number of other BSODs I got from some corrupt files) and life returned to normal.
