Windows 7: BSOD after fresh install of windows 7 x54 (IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL)

BSOD after fresh install of windows 7 x54 (IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL)


I have just formatted my desktop pc and installed windows 7 from scratch.

For 2 weeks now, everything was running fine (no issues or BSODs).

However, today I got a dump of windows 7 twice.

I have run the analysis from dm log collector.

The results are found in the attached file.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

--- Update ---

Second/Third dump has just occurred. Uploading the updated files.

I did analysis and said 'probably caused by ntfs.sys' BAD_POOL_CALLER.

I would test your hard drive with mini tools partition wizard (do surface test) Or are you using SSD? And always run Ram test after blue screens. Use memtest86

Thank you guys.

I have 2 HDDs and one SSD ( recently bought ).

However, the BSOD issue occurred also before buying the SSD disk.

I will do the following:

1) Currently I'm checking my HDDs using CHKDSK /F /R
2) After (1) has finished, I will download miniTool partition wizard and also
3) Un-install Avast and update my realtek drivers
4) Do a surface scan with the miniTool
5) Do a memtest (leave it for the whole evening)

I will post here the results and let you know!

Hello again,

I come back with the results.

1) CHKDSK didn't return any errors for my HDDs
2) I un-installed AVAST and updated my realtek drivers
3) miniTool didn't return any errors also
4) Memtest ran for approx. 12 h and didn't return any errors
5) I also ran an OCCT test for my GPU and still no errors

Seems that everything works OK, but do you happen to know how can I "stress" my desktop in order
to produce this BSOD?

Thank you.

The best way to 'stress' your system is by trying to get a bluescreen again.
Stressing the GPU, CPU or trying to stress the system in any way might not put the stress on the system that you want.

Run Driver Verifier for 24 hrs.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Driver Verifier will cause your computer to run very sluggishly - this is normal. What it is trying to do is force your system to BSOD and isolate the offending driver/s. When it does, reboot, disable driver verifier, reboot as normal and upload the new dmp file/s here.

I recommend creating a system restore point before turning on driver verifier:
System Restore Point - Create

If your system fails to boot to desktop once driver verifier is enabled, turn it off by booting into Safe Mode:
Safe Mode

I just had a couple of BSODs.

For about 3 days my pc was running fine.

Today I installed a new DVD-RW drive and my system crashed when performing a surface scan on my new SSD drive (with miniTool).

I have attached the new dump files here (I got 3 dumps in a row!).

Any help (again) will be appreciated!
