Windows 7: BSOD on startup IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

BSOD on startup IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

Upon start up my ASUS G53JW received a BSOD. This is a few days after I updated my video card driver to accommodate for Battlefield 3, and it also had a xbox 360 controller plugged into it, which isn't how it usually starts up. Received the error code DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I just want to make sure I'm not in any imminent danger.
Some of my system specs:
ASUS G53JW
Windows Home Premium 64bit
Nvidia Geforce GTX 460M Video card
12.0 GB RAM
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q740 @ 1.73GHz
Killer Wireless-N 1102 Network Adapter

The system is less than 5 months old.
Thanks for the help.
(Is there any way I can attach the health report that I did?)

The crashes\bsod blame your XBox USB wireless controller

So update the software\driver

Software Downloads | Microsoft Hardware


Some more software\drivers need to update

ASUS NB Probe program

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download

Asus Data Security Manager Driver

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Drivers and Download

Its good idea to update everything for your hardware\software\drivers.


Finish and post back.

I updated my xbox 360 controller driver. It seems to work, I used it several times and it has not crashed since. The Driver scanner program says I have many out of date drivers, but when I go into device manager and search for driver updates for the things that driver scanner found, it says they are already up to date. I'll investigate further. Thanks again.

Ok,give it time 1-2 days,play work as usual and post back with results.


This may help for future software\driver updates #2 (permalink)
