IRQL Not less or equal - Kernel-Power ID-41 while playing games

Hello

I am getting IRQL Not less or equal quite semi-often, they are all listed as Kernel-Power ID: 41 in the event log. Most often these happen when playing games.

I should note that my Windows 7 64bit is in Finnish.

Also, the event log attaches this message:

- <Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">

Hey, thank you for quick answer.

However, I do not use AMD Graphics card, but GeForce GTX 760.
How should I try to fix these drivers, then?

Yes, I see that now, but you have an AMD CPU.

I will have a look at this in a bit, I have to go to the pool right now.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:

Arg2: 000000000000000f, IRQL

	bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation

I see your NVidia drivers are mostly up-to-date. In that case you can try reinstalling those drivers.
