Windows 7: BSOD - Driver IRQL not LESS or EQUAL

BSOD - Driver IRQL not LESS or EQUAL

Over separate clean install's of Windows 7, my system blue screens and dies, giving this error - Driver IRQL not less or equal. Ive changed my RAM, and my Hard drive - they were due for upgrades anwyay, but the issue STILL persists.

Ive read a lot of similar issues on this website, but they dont seem to be describing what is happening to me. The crashes are moody - to say the least. They may not happen for a very long period - like a week or so, and then just happen once, OR crash constantly for an hour and refuse to go back into windows? It does work again after trying after a while. I think it might be a heating issue, causing it to lock up, but its not getting really hot or anything. Im really confused.
Im attaching some minidumps, and i'd really appreciate the help! I'm at my wits end here, and I feel I know a thing or two about tech, ya'know?

Hi and welcome
\
Not heat nor RAM. Its your RAID driver (vsmraid.sys) and your video driver (dxgmms1.sys)

You should uninstall them both completely and download and install a fresh copy.

You should also run a system file check
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)

Let us know the results

Oh wow! Thanks for the quick reply! I'll try to fix it immediately. You think going into safe mode would be better against these crashes right? I'll keep you updated as it goes.

Thanks for the help. Ive rolled back my display driver to the previous one, and installed the newest raid drivers. Fingers crossed! Time to stress test it. uTorrent and Half Life 2 seemed to be doing it.

Ok, tried it out. It crashed again. Here are some fresh minidumps. Anything change?

Hi and welcome


These two were caused by your storage controller (viamrx64.sys). The driver is 3 years old and should be updated.

I just updated that driver. My motherboad only has two SATA ports, so I added a PCI card - VIA VT6421 which gives me two additional SATA ports for HDD's.
Additionally, i did the system file check - no errors reported.
What should be my next move?

Whats the date on the RAID driver? the date on the one in the DMP is 2007.

Yeah, in device manager, it says 12/20/2007. The version of the driver is 6.0.6000.6173. However, this is the latest driver (released in the end of 2009).
