IRQL not less than or equal BSOD

System crashes constantly with an external eSata drive attached, also crashes constantly with it running as a USB drive. Crashes somewhat regularly without it attached. Most often crashes with either heavy video activity or external drive access, seems aggravated if playing music. Have tried updating various drivers.

Running:
- x86 (32-bit)
- original installed OS
- Dell OEM Win Pro install
- Machine is a Dell Latitude E6510, 8 months old or so
- OS is original

Zipped diagnostics attached. Hope I didn't miss anything...

With that many crashes it had to be frustrating. Literally all of them (two were unrelated) were Related to e1k6232.sys Gigabit Adapter NDIS 6.x driver from Intel Corporation.

I would re-install with the newest driver available. If that doesnt fix it try running a system file check

Run a system file check to verify and repair your system files.
To do this type cmd in search, then right click to run as administrator, then
SFC /SCANNOW

Read here for more information SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know the results from the report at the end.

Updating the Ethernet adapters seems to have done the trick (crosses fingers). Used, the latest Intel 825xx Gigabit Platform LAN Network Device Driver off of the Dell site if anyone else has similar problems...

Thanks
