Windows 7: Many BSODs after playing game, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL etc

Hi, I've updated the ATA driver, thank you for that! I haven't yet found the appropriate driver update for Intel, the automatic detector didn't find one so I have to update manually. However, uninstalling MyWinlocker and/or running chkdsk again seems to have helped a lot; I haven't had a BSOD or freeze for a couple of days since doing those two things. Hopefully the main problem has been fixed, we'll see.

Hi, just a quick update. I hadn't had any trouble since my last post, until today, when the computer froze shortly after starting up, needing to be manually restarted. There was no BSOD or anything else though, and maybe it was caused by something unrelated. I'll wait another week and see before marking this solved.

Upon start up today I got two BSOD and a freeze. I guess it's not over yet. I ran the SF diagnostic tool again:

The latest crash dump seems corrupt and cannot be read

We may have to wait for another BSOD.

Right! Finally got another BSOD, amid a couple of freezes. However it was a frozen BSOD and it didn't say it was collecting crash dump data like it sometimes does, so I dunno if it worked properly, we'll see I guess.

Same again, corrupt files Im afraid.

All I can suggest is that you go back throught the thread and attempt to update all the drivers
that havent been updated yet.

Create a system restore point then Run Driver Verifier to scan for any corrupted drivers
which may be causing problems, this program works by running various stress tests on drivers,
in order to produce a BSOD which will locate the driver; run for least 24 hours:

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Okay, I'll try running the driver verifier. Before I do though, can you please check this attachment? I cleared the logs before getting another crash so I figured I'd try the SF tool one more time.

SFC Tutorial

Note   Note
Select option two. If any problems are found, run the scan 3 times and immediately
reboot the computer after each scan.



Also run chkdsk in an elevated command prompt in order to check for file system errors and bad sectors on your HDD:
  • Click on Start>Type in search cmd
  • Right click cmd and Run as Administrator
  • At the command prompt please type: chkdsk /f/r
    (There is a space between chkdsk and /f/r)

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.

Run these tests overnight


Are you overclocking? If so please reset to default as any overclocking will
have an affect on system stability.

Code:
 
0: kd> !sysinfo cpuspeed
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     E7500  @ 2.93GHz"
MaxSpeed:     2930
CurrentSpeed: 2933

Hi, sorry for the delay.

I've updated those drivers without issue, thanks. The tests were okay, the chkdsk results looked fine but after the computer restarted it went through a long string of BSODs. :/

As for overclocking, do you mean I'd have to reset the whole computer to default settings? If so is there any way to correct the current speed without having to do that?

The latest SF tool results are attached.
