Sporadic BSOD IRQL Not Less or Equal, as well as Memory Management BSO

Basic computer specs:

Windows 7 ( Fresh install 19/11/2011)
AMD Phenom Quad Core
Nvidia 460 SE
6 GB of ram

ASUS M4A89GTD PRO

This BSOD happens whenever it feels like it. I cant pinpoint exactly when it doesnt it because it is pretty eratic. I have attached a system diagnostic report as well as a zipped DUMP file.

Also this is a fresh, but fully updated, install of windows 7 it was done today 19/11/2011.

It also says on the system diag. that my second harddrive is disabled. I do this to conserve any usage the computer might be using it for.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption. Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.


1-Memtest.
Quote:
*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+



2-Driver verifier

Quote:
I'd suggest that you first backup your data and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

In Windows 7 you can make a Startup Repair disk by going to Start....All Programs...Maintenance...Create a System Repair Disc - with Windows Vista you'll have to use your installation disk or the "Repair your computer" option at the top of the Safe Mode menu .

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

Reboot the system and wait for it to crash to the Blue Screen. Continue to use your system normally, and if you know what causes the crash, do that repeatedly. The objective here is to get the system to crash because Driver Verifier is stressing the drivers out. If it doesn't crash for you, then let it run for at least 36 hours of continuous operation (an estimate on my part).

If you can't get into Windows because it crashes too soon, try it in Safe Mode.
If you can't get into Safe Mode, try using System Restore from your installation DVD to set the system back to the previous restore point that you created.

Id just like to say thank you for the fast response.

So far I have ran the verifier as you have said. It didnt blue screen on restart so Im going to wait and see what happens.

As to the memtest is there any way to boot the iso with something else besides a CD? Possibly a memory stick?

You can make a USB stick bootable and run it from there.

Install Windows 7 Or Windows 8 From USB
