Ah rats, I had another BSOD. It was another IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I had the pc on about half an our, and it got me on youtube, I just clicked the back button in my browser and boom, down it went.

What should my next steps be?

Were you using your USB wireless network adapter? Wireless network adapters require more power than a USB port is able to supply at a stable rate. This causes inherent instability with such devices. See if running through an Ethernet (wired) connection provides more stability.

Ah, I see. I do have usb wlan thingie, and ive been using it since november. I also have shocking internet in the area where I live, I dunno if that could add more strain to it.

I'll try that out, ( I think somewhere in the bios, there's an option to allow the USB3 ports to 'accept' or 'use' more power, I don't remember specifically what the option was called). I don't suppose that might help somehow, if I moved my wlan dongle into a USB3 port from a USB2?

Anyway, I'll try the ethernet when I get home, I'll have to ask my dad about it; to see if he wants to run a cable upstairs, or move the BTHub upstairs.


Lol, for a minute I panicked when I read your post; I thought I couldn't use an ethernet cable because I didn't have a WLAN expansion port. Haha.


Thanks again,
Dan.

No problem. I know running a wired line to computers can be a bit of a pain, but it is the best way to determine whether the problem is being caused by your wireless dongle outside of replacing the dongle with a PCI wireless network adapter card. That way you do not have to buy a new card only to find out the USB wireless network adapter was not the problem.

I had another BSOD. (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL)
This was with an ethernet installed, so I guess it couldn't be my USB wlan stick.

What next?

It's too bad the solution was not the wireless USB network adapter.

Continue to the system file check and hardware checks.

Me again, apologies for the delay. I was a bit busy/panicky with university work the past few days, but I've an update.

I tried the System File checker as you asked, and I ran it twice to check, but each time it came back with no integrity violations.

What should my next steps be out of the list you provided me with? Should I do the stress tests next, or try the memtest86+ & windows memory diagnostics?
