Windows 7: IRQL_DRIVER_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD Whilst Playing Battlefield 3

BSOD Whilst Playing Battlefield 3

Is Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? -- x64 - the original installed OS on the system? -- Windows 7 Ultimate x64 - an OEM or full retail version? -- Full Retail - What is the age of system (hardware)? -- December, 2011 - What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) -- January, 2012

System specs can be found at my profile: Windows 7 Forums - View Profile: Domenic

This has just started happening recently. I'm not sure what is causing this, so I thought I'd ask here. I've attached what you have asked for.

Since I cannot upload the Windows_NT6_BSOD_jcgriff2.zip file to your server because of a size issue, I have uploaded it to mine:

Thanks in advance for your help!

EDIT: I'd also like to point out that even when it does not BSOD, after some time (ranges from 1 minute to 1 hour), the game crashes. This is all new, never did this before the latest patch or I have no idea what.

Hey writhziden,

Here are the steps I have taken since the last post:
  1. Installed a new heatsink in the case it was a CPU heating problem. After installing the new heatsink (Cooler Master Hyper N520), temperatures dropped, but I still got BSOD's.
  2. Reinstalled Windows. All of the errors you pointed out overwhelmed me, so I thought reinstalling Windows would be the best option. I installed all the new drivers as you told me. After installing all the Windows Update's, I retried Battlefield 3. It still BSOD's after some time (same as before).
I'd like to point out that my original "IRQL_DRIVER_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" is not the ONLY error that I get while BSOD'ing. I also get random other ones like paging errors and some I can't really remember. Anyway, here's what I've done on the new installation of Windows:


  1. Ran "sfc /scannow" four times. There is corruption that SFC couldn't fix. Here is the log: http://domenicfiore.com/bsod/sfcdetails.txt
  2. Ran the "Windows_NT6_BSOD_v3.03_jcgriff2_.exe" application. Here is the log: http://domenicfiore.com/bsod/Windows...D_jcgriff2.zip
  3. Ran the "perfmon /report" application. Here is the log: http://domenicfiore.com/bsod/perfmon.html
Thanks SO MUCH for the help! It's extremely appreciated!

Where did you get your Windows install media? It sounds like it has corruption if you are already getting SFC errors after a fresh install...

The other possible cause of SFC errors so soon after a fresh install is a custom theme downloaded online.
