Windows 7: BSOD before windows start

30 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64
BSOD irql nor less than or equal

Hi, since 8 months i've been using windows 7 (64 bit) i've never had a blue screen... Now I cant even use windows normally, before Windows user login screen, y get the BSOD IRQL not less than or equal, and restart. In safe mode, the background are all black, no bars, only the mouse pointer, and automatic repair function of Windows 7 disk dosnt work.
I have not installed any new hardware or driver.

so my system:
win 7 64 bit
original install, 8 months old

thanks in advance >D

It looks like your ESET Smart Security.
I'm going to ask another person to have a look at this....

Hi -

ESET was named as the probable cause of the lone BSOD -
eamon.sys    Thu May 14 09:30:49 2009 (4A0C1D09) - ESET
epfw.sys     Thu May 14 09:12:55 2009 (4A0C18D7) - ESET
epfwwfp.sys  Thu May 14 09:12:55 2009 (4A0C18D7) - ESET
l160x64.sys  Fri Jun 19 09:15:45 2009 (4A3B8F81) - Atheros NIC
Your ESET installation is old. Update to v4.2.64.12 --> ESET Downloads

Atheros drivers --> Atheros Communications

If BSODs persist, run the Driver Verifier -- Driver Verifier -
