Windows 7: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ntoskrnl.exe BSOD

19 Dec 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hello Forum,

Forgive me for my initial post being my problem, but the notebook I'm working on is a gift so I have little time to work with it.

The Machine is as follows:
HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook
AMD Turion Ultra Dual-Core M600
4GB Ram
running 64 bi

The Minidump is attached, and MS protection is about to be installed.

Currently I'm running ESET in safe mode to detect if malicious software could be the cause. When it's finished, I will uninstall it and install ms security essentials. BRB

Will do. I have installed Speccy but as you know it will not retrieve information in safe mode. Can't run the BSOD app ATM due to no bootable device error. Running test and checking configurations now, I appreciate the response.
