Windows 7: Random BSOD - IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL -

01 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 x64

Good day.

Recently, I encountered a few blue screens and I decided to ask you guys for help regarding this issue.

The blue screen was encountered 2 times when the laptop was left idle for approximately 8 hours and one time today but not in idle.

I have attached a zip with the required logs.

Thank you for your help.

An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.

Good day.

I want to thank you for your time and work.

I have followed every step and it was all good.

During the Fusmark test, no BSOD / crash was encountered.

I will come back with an answer to let you know if the problem was fixed.

Many thanks and have a good day.

I have attached two logs, one from last night and the one generated today after I installed the CCC 14.4 WHQL.

The computer is set on fire, almost. You need to control the temps at once. Otherwise it may go fatal.

Your computer needs dusting and re-applying thermal paste. Open the computer clean the inside very carefully using compressed air. Clean all the air vents and fan grills so that it can blow the hot air out efficiently. When you are re-seating the computer, apply new thermal paste to the CPU.

If you cannot do it yourself, get it done by somebody who can. You can take the help of the professionals too. But it would be highly important. Do it as early as possible, preferably at once.

Thanks for your reply, so most likely this is the cause of the BSOD?

That might not be a single cause, but one of the causes for sure; and which is to be minimized at once. Dont let the computer run with such high temps .... it may affect the hardware components.
