BSOD WIN7_DRIVER_FAULT IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0xA

Hello,

I have now had two BSOD in the last 4-5 days, and can't quite pin down what's going on by analyzing the memory dump. Help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi matilley.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120%/52% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall the Alcohol program at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
  • Double click to open it.
  • Click this button only:
  • If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
  1. Click on the Start button
  2. Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
  3. Select the “Startup” tab.
  4. Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
You are overclocking.
Code:
CPUID:        "Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz"
MaxSpeed:     3500
CurrentSpeed: 3605
As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

Let us know how the computer is running after doing these.
