Windows 7: BSOD Increasing in frequency, IRQ possible problem, can't restore

19 May 2015   #1

Windows 7 Professional, 64 bit
BSOD Increasing in frequency, IRQ possible problem, can't restore


Thanks for any help.

My computer is giving me a BSOD with greater frequency. It typically occurs when the computer has been sleeping and I begin to use it. Unfortunately, the BSOD screen doesn't stay up long and I haven't been able to grab the error code. One time I did see a note about "IRQ not equal or less" but I did not see that the last time.

I have unsuccessfully tried to restore to different points while in safe and normal modes.

Attached is the zip file that shows my logs.

Again, thanks for any help.
