BSOD - Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

So this issue has occurred quite often recently, about once to twice a day; I have reinstalled OS but BSOD still happens. Please help me solve this problem, thanks a ton!

Hi ralf0615,

Welcome to the 7forums.

I cannot get much from the dumps.

Please check your device manager for devices that have a yellow exclamation like in the picture below


Please try following



BSOD - Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Diagnostic Test BSOD - Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
 DRIVER VERIFIER

warning   Warning
Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.

Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

Some windows drivers are blamed in a few crashes, but that usually means that a 3rd party driver is actually the cause.
Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

Note   Note
Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

Run MemTest86+ to analyse your RAM. ]MemTest86+ - Test RAM - Windows 7 Forums

Note   Note


MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.

axe0,

Thank you for your reply.

I have installed all the drivers and make sure there is no yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager.

However, shortly after I set up driver verifier, 2 BSOD happened continuously, which all occurred after I open Chrome.

Please see attachment for the two most recent dump file.

Please use the tool again and upload the zip file.
The dump files are corrupt.

Thank you,

It seems these dumps are also having the same problem.

What I can get from the dumps is 1 driver which is from the NIC.
Please check for driver updates here
Code:
0: kd> lmvm rtwlane
start             end                 module name
fffff880`056b2000 fffff880`057d1000   rtwlane    (deferred)             
    Image path: rtwlane.sys

BSOD - Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

What I would do is get the program whocrashed from Resplendence Software - WhoCrashed, automatic crash dump analyzer.
Run the application in save mode (using F8).
It will tell you in detail what driver(s) cause the crash.
Many times it is a driver thing, as I can read in the dump files you provided.

Hope this helps

Then you can read more then I can
Could be my internet connection that I cannot read the dumps, because it is sometimes a little slow.

Do you mean the Pro version of WhoCrashed?
I just tried WhoCrashed Home Edition, I had 2 days ago a small crash while booting which I only noticed due to the long time of booting (15s instead of 8-10s). WhoCrashed cannot find a 3rd party driver involved with the home version, but there is a 3rd party driver that caused the crash.

BSOD - Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUA

Nope, I'm referring to the Home edition you are already using. When I examine your .dmp file online i find that a driver trying to use an interrupt that is too high.
Someone already suggested that it may be a faulty network driver , if you already know what driver causes the system to crash, then uninstall it.
Next issue chkdsk after a crash, to repair any system issues caused by the crash automatically.
If you know the network card brand, find the appropriate driver with it and install those.
Todays manufacturars provide drivers for their specific hardware.
If you don't know what brand the hardware is, there are many tools available on the internet like Hiron's boot cd, which contain software to identify hardware.

Don't confuse me with the OP

I suggested that it may be a faulty network driver.

There is no need to uninstall a driver when it occurs just 1 time. When Windows reboots after a crash it takes the necessary actions to solve the problem.
Only when there are multiple crashes, it should be considered to remove IRST in my case.
