Windows 7: Bsod "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"

29 Oct 2015   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Bsod "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal"

I am getting this BSOD more and more frequently. I hadn't had a BSOD for a very long time. Now its gone from maybe 1 per week, to 1 per day.

I found something on another forum saying it related to NVIDIA drivers, so i removed, used the clean up tool to remove every last bit of the old driver, that made no difference.

It doesn't always happen during specific tasks either it seems random. So sometimes nothing is going on just bitcomet running in the background, sometimes nothing is going on at all Its literally just idling, last night I was playing World of Warcraft when it happened.

Anybody have any suggestions? It's kind of frustrating now?

Thanks in Advance

Hi JJMath,

You are running an ASUS Product ID on a MSI board.
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Hello So about a week ago I started receiving the BSOD fairly frequently, about once or twice a day on average. I'm fairly concerned at this point because I do not have any system restore points that date back before the BSOD began occuring. The error I receive when my system crashes consistently...
