Windows 7: BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal 0x0A

BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal 0x0A

Title says it all.
I've been having a lot of different blue screens but I managed to fix them all except this one.
This is the only blue screen I'm having right now.
I did a Memtest already and removed the bad sticks.
It usually happens at random times like either 10 minutes after I boot up or maybe even 5 hours after.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If memtest comes to be free from errors, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

information   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

warning   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.

Tip   Tip

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Also upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.

That's good that memtest came out free of errors. Enable Driver verifier now. Will check the msinfo comparing with the DV enabled crash dumps.

BugCheck A, {fffffa7ffffcffe0, 2, 1, fffff80002cf97fe}

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiRemoveAnyPage+13e )

Followup: MachineOwner
---------
According to Carrona.org, STOP 0x0000000A: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Usual causes:
Kernel mode driver, System Service, BIOS, Windows, Virus scanner, Backup tool, compatibility

The BIOS seems to be very old.
Code:
BIOS Version/Date    Phoenix Technologies, LTD 6.00 PG, 1/16/2008
Try to update it. I am not sure about the nforce boards, those are kinda backdated. But you may search it in http://www.nvidia.com/object/product...0i_sli_us.html.

Which antivirus do you use? And how many passes you run memtest?

No antivirus? That's not safe. I'd suggest you to scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Then use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Run memtest for at least 8 passes and report back.

So I got 8 passes and I tried to do the virus scan but I keep blue screening before it's even half way finished. So I booted up in Safe mode and still blue screened. I'm not sure what hardware is wrong.

What is the result of memtest? Did it BSOD during memtest?

Have you tried Windows Defender Offline? It it resulting BSODs during it?
