Windows 7: 2nd Blue Screen in 2 days DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and DRIVER_POW

2nd Blue Screen in 2 days DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and DRIVER_POW

I just experienced 2 BSOD in 2 days but they appear to have different causes. The last one is showing DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (0x000000d1) whereas the earlier one has DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (0x1000009f). I installed an Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver per the HP support website recommendation yesterday which may be the cause of the DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL blue screen. I appreciate any recommendations as this computer continues to be running its fan hard and not working as it should. THANK YOU, Surf1000

Hi surf1000.

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 and the touchpad driver, SynTPEnh.
  5. Apply > OK
  6. Accept then restart.
Get rid of intel rapid storage. First uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then Uninstall the driver from device manager.
  1. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  2. It will open the "computer management" window.
  3. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  4. Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.
Dont let the HDD go to sleep. Follow Power Plan Settings - Change .... at step 5 set Turn off Hard Disc to "Never".

Let us know the results.
