Windows 7: BSOD - NDIS.sys "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"

BSOD - NDIS.sys "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"

Hello,

I have a problem with my father's laptop. Every time i turn on the wireless, a BSOD appears with the message:

"driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"
....
NDIS.sys

I've been searching a lot lately and everyone points the problem differently.

I've read in a forum, a post by a guy with a similar issue.
He says that the wireless and the network card(cable) share the same IRQ and must be a conflict between them.

He said he solved his problem re-installing the wireless driver, but every time i do a update driver in the device manager, he says i have the latest driver installed. Is the solution installing a older driver?

My problem gets worst. I can't find the discs that came with the laptop.
1 cd with the drivers and two others, with the xp recovery disc.

We need the actual DMP file created when the computer crashed. Use these to help you find and upload them to us. http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-loc...d-problem.html

Go to your computer manufacturer's site and download the latest Wireless driver there.

I'm sure you can find one, as your current one is dated 2004:

Okay, everything seems fine now. Aparently the only thing needed was to update the drivers of the network card.

How do i mark a thread has solved?

Click the red triangle above your post (the flag button) and use these exact words, avoiding any typos as they could get you banned:

I had a very similar problem on an Acer Ferrari One 200 running Windows 7.

When the bundled subscription to McAfee AV/security ran out, I uninstalled it through Control Panel - Programs - Uninstall a program. Restarting Windows led to a BSOD including -

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
......
ndis.sys

From Safe Mode, I did a System Restore to the settings of the previous day. I then tried the uninstall again but with exactly the same result.

Checking in Computer - System Properties - Device Manager, I noted that there were two WiFi devices 'Atheros AR5B93......' and 'Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter'. I disabled the latter.

I then did a System Restore as above, and found that WiFi worked fine with the Microsoft device disabled.

Finally I carried out the uninstallation of McAfee but did NOT restart. I installed Microsoft Security Essentials and then restarted.

No BSOD!

I don't know which step (disabling the device or not restarting after uninstallation) solved the problem but everything works fine.
