Windows 7: IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL - Getting worse

IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL - Getting worse

Haven't bothered asking for help yet, since I've only been getting them around 3-5 times a month since I built this set up back in April, but this month has just been insane.

I've tried everything I can think of, used memtest84+ for around 4 hours, no errors, Redid my 480 drivers around 4 times, also tried the new beta drivers, I used Driver sweeper each time in safe mode, used Driver Genius Pro to updated random drivers that I might have overlooked, did the System Check, nothing helped.

I'm running this PC 24/7 and it never, only at a few very rare occasions, bluescreens while idle, it usually bluescreens when I game or have multiple things open, especially Firefox, which originally left me to believe it was my ram, but I guess not, but yea I know, memtest was only running for 4 hours and it could not show up at all even, even if it might be a bad stick.

Often it doesn't even bluescreen while I game, it's really random, some days it doesn't even bluescreen at all, yet on some I get them in chains, quickly after the other. This month was terrible, in 10 days I've gotten 20+ BSoD, the only thing that changed was the heat, but my system is cooled very well and temps never go above 70 under load, I've been monitoring.

Gonna attach a bunch of recent dumps, in hope that someone figures this nightmare out. One last thing, the 480 was added in March, used a BFG 8800 GTX OC2 before that.

Thanks in advance!

It appears that this is a hardware problem.
27 memory dumps - from 26 Apr to 11 Jul 2010 (3╜ months)
6 different STOP error codes, blaming 7 different causes

Driver Verifier has been running since 04 Jul 2010 - please turn it off by selecting "Delete existing settings" in the first screen.

Also, please remove or update these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall OR remove:
Quote:
How To Find Drivers:
- I have listed links to most of the drivers in the code box below. Please use the links there to see what info I've found about those drivers.
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: http://www.carrona.org/drvrdown.html

Here's the older drivers (You can look them up here: Driver Reference ).
Please pay particular attention to any dated 2008 or earlier:
Code:
ctgame.sys   Tue Apr 06 20:42:49 2004 - Creative Game Port Enumerator - Driver Reference
hamachi.sys  Thu Nov 30 15:24:52 2006 - LogMeIn Hamachi Virtual Network interface driver - Driver Reference
RivaTuner64.sys Tue Jul 17 15:13:42 2007 - Riva Tuner (uninstall until we're finished troubleshooting - no updates   available AFAIK) - Driver Reference
RTCore64.sys Wed May 25 02:39:12 2005 - RivaTuner/EVGA Precision - Driver Reference
After you've done all of that, please also run these hardware diagnostics:
Quote:
H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link)

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Malware (read the details at the link)

Then, if the above tests pass, I'd try these free stress tests:
Quote:
FurMark download site: FurMark: Graphics Card Stability and Stress Test, OpenGL Benchmark and GPU Temperature | oZone3D.Net
FurMark Setup:
- If you have more than one GPU, select Multi-GPU during setup
- In the Run mode box, select "Stability Test" and "Log GPU Temperature"
Click "Go" to start the test
- Run the test until the GPU temperature maxes out - or until you start having problems (whichever comes first).
- Click "Quit" to exit
Quote:
Prime95 download site: Free Software - GIMPS
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead. (run all 3 if you find a problem and note how long it takes to error out with each)
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
This won't necessarily crash the system - but check the output in the test window for errors.
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.

Alright, first of all, thank you a bunch for the detailed reply, really appreciate the time you put into this.

Okay, I turned off Driver Verifier, removed Rivertuner and everything connected to it, including EVGA percision, then reinstalled it to the newest version (1.9.5, I had 1.9.4 before). I also removed the "Creative Game Port", that driver was from 2006, and I couldn't find the Game Emulator, so I'm guessing it was that. Also ran the windows System Check on my main HDD where my OS is located, no errors.

I'll rerun Prime95 in the next few days if I continue to bluescreen, but I'm pretty confident my OC is stable, I ran it for multiple hours when I set it up, same with my 480, it's stable, stress tested it with and with out my OC for around 12 hours when I got it.

We'll see how it turns out! Going to go on a long gaming session tonight to see if it worked, if not I'll be posting more dumps.

Thanks! : >
