Windows 7: BSOD - irql_not_less_or_equal

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 programs and such as I hadn't been too careful the latest month of what I downloaded and such. And guess what? On my new installation of Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium OEM (I have a disc. But it's really a OEM license that I haven't registered, due to the bluescreens. I prolly wont until they are completely gone), with Service Pack 1 installed (I didn't have that on the install before because I hadn't registered so it classed me as illegal. But I have my cd-key here ready to register as soon as I feel confident about it) and all other fixes they would want me to install.

After that I reboot and then install my drivers for the GeForce 285 I had put in there that replaced my old GeForce 220. I reboot once again and starts playing a game after I installed one. I think it was GTA IV if that matters.

I get a bluescreen after playing for like an hour or so. Then they came more commonly and now I can't bare it anymore. I can't even play Magicka in windowed mode without getting a bluescreen.

I have some dumps bundled up and some of them are not from playing any games either. I can run programs like Autodesk 3ds Max 2011 and I can sometimes get a bluescreen, though rarely.

I now get BSOD's every time I play a game or do something that pushes the computer a bit.

People blame the motherboard. And I do too. But can anybody read the dumps and tell me if that's the case by your experience? Last time it gave me errors of a bunch of different stuff so you could not pin down a reason.

The system is as follows:

Asus P6X58D Premium
Intel i7 920 2.67 Ghz
GeForce 285
RAM: can't remember their names but it's 3 times 2 Gb
Seagate Barracuda 1 Tb

I have taken of the side of the computer to allow more air to get there as the chassis does not have adequate airflow.

ASACPI.sys the 2005 version is a huge cause of BSOD's

Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit " (it's about the 8th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

The CPU is also blamed, if you are overclocking stop it

Okey I'll try and do that!

I'm not overclocking. I'm actually struggling to keep it from doing just that. BIOS resets it's settings about CPU speed and such sometimes when I get these errors and then I have to set it not do automaticly clock it or whatever the settings say. But I'll do that and see what's happens, thanks!

So... that didn't help. Still getting the bluescreens. Though it took some time to actually get it instead of just crashing once i start something, it now took an hour or so.

Dump is here and I'm now going to do the CPU test.

Do you have any Zone Alarm software, if so remove them as they tend to cause BugCheck 7F

If you have no such software run driver verifier(it will cause BSODs in order to identify the faulting driver) and upload the new dumps created dumps

I don't even know what Zone Alarm is so I doubt I have it. The CPU is getting overheated when I do that Stress test. Is this something that can cause these bluescreens?

On the other hand it doubt it for the reason that the bluescreens happens randomly in games that doesn't even require much power. I can play the new Crysis 2 Demo without problem (so far) but a little indie game crashes the computer.. it annoys me.

Now I'm rebooting to apply those verifier settings. I'll be back whenever I get the settings reseted so I can boot it normally again after the crash!

EDIT: Back now. I booted twice and got two dumps in the following rar.

bump!

so i rendered a movie now in Adobe premiere and the temperature got up to 100 C, where CPU Temp would ask me if he would shut it down for me. I said no until I was done because I didn't want to start over but I kept watching so it didn't get above 100. Which it didn't. Is there a way to configure the CPU fan or something so it cools some more or is it already on full throttle automaticly?

The CPU should never have got above 80C.
This suggest bad airflow in your case, defects in the CPU, insufficient cooler(s) or bad thermal paste

Okey. I've been looking around in the settings for the CPU now and I've tried setting everything that was on auto clock to something standard and I'll see what happens.
