Windows 7: irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD, error 0x0000000A

01 Feb 2013   #31

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I'll try and get around to all of them, heh

So first I tried hooking it up to a second monitor as Slartybart mentioned. The monitor actually doesn't even recognize the computer is on (The option to switch to the input from the computer is grayed out, which is what it would do if the computer was off). I've used it as a second monitor before so I know the cable and external monitor are both fine.

Then I tried gregrocker's suggestion in removing the RAM and then booting... same thing as before.

Neither Esc or F10 bring up the BIOS, tried them both a few times each.

Could've sworn I mentioned this in an earlier edit but I guess my phone didn't send it. I checked out that blank screen error codes link because the Caps/Scroll Lock LEDs blink once and pause for about a second. That says it's a sign of the CPU not being functional.

Is your battery still in the machine?
Are there other external devices connected to the mahine?
Have you tried draining the power and resetting CMOS (hold power button 2 minutes with no power connected)

After that, if you're up for it, I'd make sure everything is properly connected inside. Yeah, I know, that menas you have to open it up again. Sometimes, though it's the little things that count. This is where the real problems started. I'd also see if the fan will spin freely. It might not be the CPU - just the fan. This entails a bit more work, but a $35 part and a bit of time beats a lot of other oprions (new CPU, new machine)

Here's a troubleshooting book, fairly standard, but nice to have a path. I'm not selling anything, but the web pages might be useful - one nice thing is the clickable decisions on the flowcharts.
