Getting a BSOD

Hi guys,

So I'm getting the classic "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" BSOD. It does NOT reference a file name and it does NOT create a minidump file.

Perfmon HTML and BSOD Dump & System File Collection app folder attached...

Please help.

Specs are current, built the machine myself, OEM version of W7, most hardware is about 4-5 months old, so is W7 installation.

Hi, xRipx.
There's nothing attached... Please do it again.
Take a look at Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Nope still no DMP files included in the upload try this method.




To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

Well it's taken a while for it to BSOD again, but it did. I made that changes you suggested in sysdm.cpl, but it still will NOT create a minidump file.
