Windows 7: BSOD upon wake-up, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

BSOD upon wake-up, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I got a BSOD after waking my laptop up just a few minutes ago. I've got a few BSOD's before, but ignored them. They seem to happen randomly, the closest trend among them is a few minutes after waking from sleep. I've got an ASUS G55VW that I game heavily on. I believe I uploaded the dump files correctly. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Grizzly

Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall stubborn software.



 Clean boot

Make scans with the following:

Run Disk Check on your Hard Drive for file system errors and bad sectors on it.

 Hard Drive Diagnostics

  • Double click and open my computer.
  • Right click on desired drive and hit properties.
  • Click on tools tab and Check now.

Read complete instructions on the tutorial: Disk Check

Other Tests:
 


Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Memtest should be done overnight.
