irql_not_less_or_equal - win7 x64 - game related BSOD

Hello,

I just started noticing this error now, but I believe it has happened well in the past as well the more I think about it. I can repeat the exact same BSOD over and over, by doing the exact same thing with no problem. Essentially what happens is that I will launch Arma 3 through steam until the game loads. Once the game has loaded, I click the multiplayer button and immediately BSOD with a reference to irql_not_less_or_equal. Once the computer restarts, I am prompted with the "windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" with the following information attached:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48
Locale ID: 1033

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: d1
BCP1: FFFFF88007E45000
BCP2: 0000000000000002
BCP3: 0000000000000000
BCP4: FFFFF8800458AFA0
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 256_1

Files that help describe the problem:
C:\Windows\Minidump\071414-15490-01.dmp
C:\Users\Josh\AppData\Local\Temp\WER-22557-0.sysdata.xml



From here, I tried looking up a few potential causes without changing much. For example, i followed the steps to stop verifier.exe, but it said nothing was changed after I had finished - assuming this means it was already disabled. I have ensured that my GPU drivers and Network drivers are up to date as well. That is about all the information I can give at the moment, however I will attach the minidumps from the last 3 or 4 attempts at making it work. On another note, I cannot seem to find the local\temp\wer-22557-0.sysdata.xml file either.

Thank you!

I could not directly upload .dmp files as an attachment, this is the only thing I could think of to get the minidumps to anyone that can help.

EDIT 1:

My computer specs...
ACPI x64 based, windows 7 x64

Nvidia Geforce GTX 770
Killer e2200 PCI-E gigabit ethernet controller
Intel i7 4770k CPU 3.5 ghz
Nivida and Realtek high definition audio

EDIT 2: Added requested information

EDIT 3: After viewing the mindmps in bluescreenview, it looks like 90% of the issues point towards my ethernet adapter, while there are two issues relating to one of the files associated with my GPU drivers. Any Ideas?

I am going to try to disable qualcomm's killer network manager and see if that helps. I could really use some more expert advice though when someone gets the time.



EDIT: It seems to have worked for now, as I have been able to click multiplayer without crashing for the first time since this problem started. I still would like some more insight, opinions, and understanding if at all possible. Thanks again.

Hi There,

You are correct, it is your Killer network driver,

Code:

You can try updating the driver here,

Driver Downloads | Qualcomm Atheros, Inc.

Those are the recent ones, the ones from May are blaming your Nvidia drivers,

Newer is not always better, as you may know,

Try using a different version if they start giving you problems again,

This is a good guide as well,

Hey there, greatly appreciate some extra input. I'll take a look at the links you suggested and see what I can work with. On a side note, is there anything wrong with disabling the killer network manager? It seemed to do the trick, but it isn't a real fix I suppose.

If you don't need it, go ahead. See how things go.

Same with the Nvidia drivers, if they seem to work now I wouldn't mess with them until they are causing problems.

You got lucky with Bluescreenview, usually it points to a microsoft driver and that's 99.9% of the time a false positive.

It worked for me man. All I did was disable it under msconfig for both running and startup.
