Windows 7: New Build BSOD (DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL)

New Build BSOD (DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL)

Hey, thanks for reading, it's good there's actually somewhere to go with these kinda errors seeing as M$ don't really care too much (Error reporting lol.) and as I built this machine myself I don't have any kinda OEM support.

I suppose the best place to start is explaining where I am with this, basically this is my first big build, I've injected a lot of cash into this as a christmas/birthday (20 in 6 days ) present to myself, so it's a lot of excitement for me as a PC enthusiast which makes it even worse that the bloody thing keeps BSOD'ing on me. At first I thought it was just when it was doing something involving my webcam (Logitech's drivers have never been all that awesome if you ask me) so I unplugged it, uninstalled drivers etc to see if it'd give me stability... It didn't.

Now I've had this machine for about 40 hours now and so far I've had numerous BSOD's during web browsing, fullscreen youtube videos, gaming (RUINED my Skyrim experience, didn't quicksave -.-) and generally anytime I actually want to do anything on the machine. After the webcam drivers made no difference, I thought video drivers, as I had the nVidia beta drivers installed... Got rid of them, put the stable official release on (Clean install) and thought that'd help. Once again... It didn't.

Lastly I thought 'It must be the RAM, 16GiB is a lot and there's a lot of margin for error there' so I performed windows' own Memtest and... All apparently fine. I reseated the RAM hoping maybe a flake of skin or a hair was somehow making it unstable, but no. Nothing has helped. It loves to BSOD.

So I hopped onto the Google Train and found my way here, and I'm feeling pretty hopeful from reading other threads that there's a genuine community here able to help, so in advance;

Thank you for saving Christmas.
... and birthday

All of these (every one of them) were related to your Intel Ethernet driver(e1q62x64.sys)


I would re-install the newest version available.

If this works you are King. Sword in the Stone all over again. It's funny, as far as Device Manager is concerned it's all groovy with the latest version, but a little bit of sniffing by the great Bloodhound of the Web known as Google reveals that it's at version 16.7, demonstrating that Windows is lying to my face saying 11.4 is the boss.

And now... To uninstall the old and install the new...

Well this is a strange one... It might have worked, it might not have worked, I have no way to tell other than to use my PC, but you sounded very confident that it was those drivers that were causing the issue, I have no reason to doubt you so I'll put my faith in you and crown you the new King of The Internet!

All hail

Just as a sideline thing, could you tell me how you worked out it was those drivers? I've looked over the contents of Geth.zip (Named the machine after the Geth from Mass Effect, cool name for a gaming rig :P) and read a few of the .txt files, I'm guessing it's the .dmp that hold the answers... Do you need a program to open .dmp's or is the one-and-all Notepad jumping in to save the day once again?


Oh and thank you again for bringing stability to the kingdom, my Lord. My birthday and christmas are saved, and my 1800 not wasted Job well done sir!
