Windows 7: BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal, a few minutes after boot.

BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal, a few minutes after boot.

Hello,

My computer has been getting: irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD, a few minutes after booting and logging into windows.
The computer is just running a few programs when this happens (Quickbooks POS, HW Monitor, Excel, and Notepad). I have to reboot and sometimes I get a BSOD right away, and it works fine for over 7 hours after the third reboot.

Please if you could help me identify what is wrong, because the error code seems to point to a faulty driver.

I have tested and switched between two different ram sticks of the same brand (computer runs on just one stick of 2GB).
Uninstalled and reinstalled 3 different nvidia graphics drivers on safe mode, doing a clean install each time.

Thank you in advance.

Greetings VHZEIN,
I recall working with you on this thread:
Programs and features details missing.
Your optical drive also went missing courtesy of iTunes.

Is the zip that you attached to your first post from the same computer mentioned in your system specs?

Code:
Computer type PC/Desktop  
System Manufacturer/Model Number custom build  
OS Windows 7 Ultimate x64  
CPU AMD Athlon II X3 425  
Motherboard ASUS M4N68T-M  
Memory Kingston HyperX Blu 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333  
Graphics Card NVIDIA 7025 / 630a

Yes, the same, except:
I'm no longer using integrated video, I am using a galaxy gt 640 now.

Also, just updated my system specs.

Thank you for your help.

Thanks for confirming and for updating the system specs.

I'm not sure if the W7 installation is genuine. I've asked those more experienced than me to look at the data. Thanks for your patience.

The W7 installation is not genuine.

I doubt that members here will help until that is rectified.

I didn't know this copy wasn't genuine. I will find a solution to this.

BSOD shortly after system boot, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Hello, I've recently had a BSOD with the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error. I've had this BSOD a couple of times in the past, but after I rebooted it was alright. However today every time, shortly after I log in on Windows, this BSOD pops up. I've attached the BSOD report. Thanks for your help

BSOD on boot: irql_not_less_or_equal
When my PC boots, I *usually* get irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD. Sometimes it boots successfully (maybe 1 in 15 or so). Safe mode seems to work OK, so it must be a driver or similar. I have attached the SF Diagnostic Tool zip file. Many thanks in advance for helping me out !
