Windows 7: I have "Driver IRQL not less or equal" Problem Please Help...!

15 Dec 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64,

First time poster here. Excellent forum and great resouce.

I've been getting BOD's now for over a week and it only hapens when I start to download something through a Torrent program like Utorrent/Bit Torrent and the new one Tixati. The system is stable but once one of these programs goes to download a file I get a BOD 100% of the time. I have used the program Bluescreen view and this is what it came up with:

Driver causes: ntoskrnl.exe and tcpip.sys

File Description: (NT Kernel & System)

File version 6.1.7600.16617 (win7_gdr.100618-1621)

Full Path:C:\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

Caused by address:tcpip.sys+897aO

Caused by Driver: tcpip.sys

Sorry for not supplying the dump file as I'm not 100% of the process and what program to install to obtain and save them. Please advise.

I have tried reinstalling Windows 32 as well as 64bit 3 times over but receive the same BOD. I have received advice form the dedicated Asus Sabertooth forum saying to install the Realtek Lan driver from the Asus install disc only as windows default ones were causing BOD's for some users. I have tried 3 differnet drivers (5 times off the Asus disc after uninstalling driver in device mananger nothing is fixing the issue.

As mentioned I only get the BOD's when I start to download anything through a Torrent program and I can surf the net and download drivers etc with no errors of any kind. I ran disc check no problems and the motherboard has a memory button to check and automaically set it and boots saying memory checks out plus i'm running a Asus utiltity called Asus Probe 11 and that tell me everything is running "Safe" and no heat issues going by the temperatures.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
