BSOD: irql_not_less_or_equal - on first startup only

Everytime i boot my PC now since about 2 weeks ago, i always hear it start up, then reset and start up and ask what mode to start in (normally, safemode etc)
selecting normal, the pc then starts up fine, says it will scan for reasons it didnt start up and find nothing.
I watched what was happening and noticed the BSOD of; irql_not_less_or_equal was appearing, from what i know i havnt installed any new hardware recently, and when doing a scannow, things are found but not repaired, i will try attached the notepad file.
what other things do i need to be checking?
thank you very much for any help given
