Windows 7: IRQ LESS than EQUAL at random times, usually when watching youtube.

IRQ LESS than EQUAL at random times, usually when watching youtube.

I have been having issues with random BSOD's at random times i don't think it's heat related im almost sure its driver related with some ad in card i have. I was able to play Bioshock Infinite on ultra all the way through without one to give your a sense of stability when its not doing it. it seems to be always when using youtube or the pc is just doing easy to run things, im wondering if it's slysoft's clone drive, my acpi drivers, im out of ideas at this point. I do have a xonar stx and im using UNI drivers v1.7(BRAINBIT) with it and possibly it's causing the issues. I recently got the new CPU, MOBO and SSD but i Re-installed Windows after getting those installed. I am not using the AI suite with my motherboard as it caused crazy high DPC latency spikes for me just so you know, and my HD audio is through the GTX 570 for 7.1 when needed.

Any help would be appreciated I have attached my system dump files as stated in the tutorial thread. If you need any more info please ask for it.

Okay new issue. I only get bsods for this now. I get them with saying its always Stop 0x0000007E SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED with dxgmms1.sys now. It is always with watching YouTube after awhile and i think it may be flash in general now idk anymore. I can game for hours on end with no crash so its only when pc is doing easy stuff.
What iv done:
1. reinstalled flash
2. updated GPU drivers to latest 320.18(nvidia)
3. ran memtest for over 8 passes with no issues.
What i Have not done: disable HW acell in flash yet.

I have updated this post with latest crash dumps.

Thanks again,

Wow I'll get you that info soon thanks for the response. To clarify a few things, and I use the silicon devices for a pci-e esata card which has never given me issues, comodo iv always used and never had issues with, and the video drivers and the uni(xonar ones) I will try rolling back, and might just ditch the esata card as well since I have two 6GB/s ones on this board. I have installed the latest logitech game software so idk why that's so out of date perhaps it was lcdstudio that I used to use that put that in or aida64 for its display plugin could be either.

Hi after much testing was going to reinstall windows again and figure out what was messed up but basically I ran memtest with no errors for 10 hours and after that went to back up my os with acronis before I reinstalled windows. Booting into windows to do this comodo prompted me for an update so I did it and restarted and haven't crashed since so that was probably it. I will post back here if I have other issues in say one week but this pretty much resolved. Again thanks for all your time people.
