Windows 7: Stop 0x0a Irq_not_less_or_equal during boot process

05 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 64-bit Professional SP1
Stop 0x0a Irq_not_less_or_equal during boot process

I fixed my memory BSODs by getting some new RAM, but this BSOD is still giving me some issues. I've updated my drivers as best I could. Some I couldn't find any drivers for since I just got this system a week ago, and the Sandy Bridge stuff came out in January.

Anyways, I'm running Windows 7 64-bit OEM at the moment. So as it's at the Windows boot screen, and then just before it gets to the login screen, I see the BSOD.

This minidump archive includes the three most recent ones with the new RAM installed. I didn't see any RAM related ones (Memory management, page fault, etc), just this IRQ one.

Windows 10 Pro x64, Arch Linux

A windows component is blamed(CI.dll)
Boot in safe mode and run SFC to fix it
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Driver verifier seems enabled, disable it as it is only used for troubleshooting purposes
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

BugCheck A, {6, 2, 0, fffff800058a72b3}

Probably caused by : CI.dll ( CI!BenalohMod64+45 )

Oh nevermind. Forgot I ran the thing twice. Once in regular mode, and once in safe mode. I think it's fixed.

Word process doesn't stop
Why does MS Word not shut down properly? This happens occasionally and, I think, haphazardly. I go into task manager and even though I've closed the program, the Winword file remains, thus preventing my deleting Word's temp files.:mad: Thanks.
