Windows 7: BSOD, Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_equal (unexpected shutoffs as well)

28 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit with Service Pack 1
BSOD, Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_equal (unexpected shutoffs as well)

I've recently gotten the DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL bluescreen at least twice. Once while playing WoW, but the other time while merely browsing the internet with Google Chrome. However, I've previously also had unexpected shutdowns where my computer would just quit. Wouldn't even bluescreen. Just shut off everything. I'm beginning to suspect hardware and/or drivers, but I'm still not sure.

Files from running SF Diag are included as an attachment.

Thanks in advance for any help.
