Windows 7: IRQL_NOT_LESS_NOR_EQUAL BSOD into Failed Booting.

07 Mar 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

Hello, the problem I have with my computer is that it wont sucesfully boot.I did ''Boot with last known good configuration(how i'm typing this now)'' I'm not sure if it will be a permanent fix.
So my computer started to BSOD with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL about a week ago, and I took my ram out the socket and installed it and it was working, today I had the same error, I rebooted and afte a few reboots
My computer started to really **** up, when it showed the ''Load Windows'' it would crash as soon as the first two dots went into motion. I tried to system restore thru the Repair thing, but it came up with an error
I haven't done anything else or tried anything else. I'm going to reboot my Computer after this message to see if it'll work. I will update the post on my mobile device, if it doesn't work. Thanks.

There is no crash dump in the uploaded zip (as it is common for boot time BSODs). But we need to know at least some information about it.

Can you take a camera snap of the next BSOD screen and upload it here?

As the computer is refusing to boot now, you may try one thing. Boot into Advanced Boot Options and then select Last Know Good Configuration (advanced) and hit enter.
Does it boot back?

If not, try Safe Mode. Does it boot into Safe Mode? Let us know.
