Windows 7: BSOD BugCheckcode 0x000000D1

BSOD BugCheckcode 0x000000D1

Hello everyone,

I'm new here and decided to sign up to the forum because I've been having BSOD problems every once in a while but they've started to become more regular. It just happens out of the blue (no pun intended) and I get an illegible blue screen that's completely screwed up, with the text turned into white and coloured stripes going all across it.
I had a look at the eventviewer, and on every occasion I had this problem it came up with Event ID 41, Souce: Kernel-Power and Bugcheckcode 209 (0x000000D1)
I ran BlueScreenView which told me that the Bug Check String is DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Some more info:
System manufacturer/make: Sony VAIO CPCEC1M1E
System Age: June 2010
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
OS installed since: June 2010 (never re-installed)
OEM Version

Is there some way this can be fixed? Thanks very much for having a look and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Panais,

Thanks!

I'll go and update the driver now. Will that solve the problem or is this just something I have to do in general?

Hm, I tried to update the driver via the device manager by automatically searching for driver software but I was told by windows that it's decided that the driver software is up to date...

I'm not horribly bad with computers, but what driver version would you suggest and where can I get it?

Thanks, I managed to do that, all I need to do now is figure out how to install the driver from the zip file... I'm sorry, I'm not horrible with computers but all I see is .inf files, .sys files and .cat, neither of which I know what t do with.

I extracted the files from the zipfile into a folder on my desktop andtried going through Device Manager and chose "Browse my computer for driver software". I selected the folder that I extracted the downloaded files into, but again Windows told me that the drivers for my network adapter are up to date.

Uninstall the driver,then try to install the new one.

If you cannot to do that,then uninstall the driver,restart and let windows to auto install the same one.

Live it that way and wait for results.
