Hi saltyboy and welcome to Seven Forums,
BSOD's are frustrating for everyone and many times difficult to find the cause. The BSOD IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL usually is from a hardware driver, or a hardware conflict. Next time you get the BSOD, look it over carefully. Take a screen shot of it with a digital camera to print out, It is divided into 4 parts. The last section sometimes lists a driver by name that could be causing the problem. If so, uninstall that driver and reinstall the latest driver from the manufacturer web site.
It is probabliy the video card driver. Download the latest video driver for the card you want to use. Then go to the device manager, and locate your present video card, go to properties, and you can uninstall the video driver. Once done, reboot, then install the latest video driver, and see it that fixes your problem.
A more tedious way to possibly ID the culprit, is to write down the memory address in the 4th section of the BSOD, that was involved with the stop error. The in the device manager, of your display adapter, see it that memory address in within the range assigned to the video card driver. Is so you know the that's it.
Hopes that helps.

Hi saltyboy.

Download and install the network driver from Realtek ...... Get the second one from the list, that is the "Win7 and Server 2008 R2 Auto Installation Program" one.

Let us know how the computer is running after doing it.

Hello! I've been here before with almost the same system as last time. This time I have a new GPU, and I swapped because I had a BSOD-free month or so and so I didn't think it would be a problem as I thought my "home cures" had worked. So I reinstalled windows to clean my computer from trash...
