Windows 7: BSOD browsing the web, 0x0000000A, irql_not_less_or_equal

BSOD browsing the web, 0x0000000A, irql_not_less_or_equal

Recently my computer has been crashing and getting BSOD. After I get the the blue screen and I try to restart my computer, it won't boot. If it does boot it takes a long time. I am fairly new to these forums, so if I do not make this thread in the correct format, then I apologize in advance.

I have windows ultimate 7 x64
It is OEM
orginal os

The whole system is about 2 years old
I have reinstalled the OS several times in the past

Thanks! Also, I am not the very best with computers, so if I ask repetitive questions, sorry in advance.

These are all pretty random blue screens, which usually points to a hardware concern. I would do a RAM - Test with Memtest86+ as this appears to be the most likely problem. Run it overnight and post back your results.

As writhziden said these are fairly vague. I would do three things


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/Windows 7 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.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable


3-Run the update readiness tool and update to SP-1



Ensure you install the correct 64 or 32 bit option for your system)
Download the System Update Readiness Tool (64bit)
Download the System Update Readiness Tool (32bit)

For some reason whenever I try to download memtest and burn it to a cd, the cd either has something in it, when it doesn't. Or if I try to use the usb method after it extracts, and I reboot nothing happens.
