Windows 7: BSOD desktop restarts in normal mode, error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL n

I did Driver Verifier once and so far in normal mode my system hasnt crashed to blue screen. So whats the next step? Does this mean the problem is fixed? Am I supposed to wait for a blue screen and just keep letting it crash in normal mode? Am I supposed to keep following the driver verifier steps and do that every time I restart? Sorry im a little confused.

It just crashed again. Should I keep letting it crash in normal mode? Do I have to do the Driver Verifier each time?

After enabling verifier you need to observe and use your computer for 36 hours.
The bad drivers will cause BSoDs.
If verifier runs fine, then we have to do hardware tests

What do you mean by if verifier runs fine? What if I'm not able to be here for a 36 hour period? Should I leave the computer off than? I guess I just dont understand what were trying to accomplish by letting it crash over and over. It still reads the same message. I'm just trying to understand, haha.

Verifier puts extreme stress on the drivers, bad ones will cause BSOD. If we change all those drivers we hope for no more BSODs, If you get no BSODs, then its not a driver and we look to hardware. With verifier on your computer may be a little laggy, but actually..its just doing its work.

And yes, leave your computer turned on.

So just to clarify I only had to do the verifier once and than just keep letting my computer crash in normal mode? Also, now that I have security essentials should I go into safe mode and scan? Sidenote: now that I installed the new audio driver I hear a crackling when my computer plays the login sound. If Im just supposed to keep letting it crash for a 36 hour period should I just wait until the end of that time for my next reply?

If you don't want to run the verifier I'll leave this thread.
Ask someone to help you.

No no no.. you're misunderstanding me. I'm just trying to make sure I'm doing what you're asking me to do right. I appreciate all of your help. So when verifier is running will it be fine if the computer just keeps restarting to the login screen or the prompt to ask whether you want safe mode or start windows normally? Since I wont be here some of the time will it still work that way? Or do I have to make sure I'm logged in?

Are you still going to help?
