Windows 7: BSOD on Startup/Login: [DRIVER_]IQRL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

24 Mar 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate

Hello, I am suddenly getting this problem where I would get this BSOD on startup. The error shows a problem with drivers, but I did not install or change any software for months, so I am guessing this was caused by a Windows Update messing up a driver or something.

The problem is simple. Starting Windows Logo forms, then BSOD about 5 seconds later.
Sometimes it makes it past that, and I get the login screen. When I try to login, it then crashes with one of the two BSODs.

I've tried:
-System Restore to a week earlier (3/15): It says it completed successfully, but I still get the BSOD on
startup. The computer was working fine at that date.
-Startup Repair. It says it cannot repair automatically.
-Last Known Good Configuration. Still BSOD on startup.
-Safe Mode With Networking. This, so far, has been a hit or miss. Sometimes it still BSODs after it finishes loading up the drivers. Other times it will get past that and let me login, only to BSOD after up to 10 minutes later. Or, it will work just fine, which is happening right now for me typing this.

I would include my specs, but I assume that is already included in the logs attached...?
Any help on what to do from here would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Make sure to check Windows Update for updates, most others have a few hundreds of hotfixes installed.
It may take some time to get them all, Windows 10 update is adviced to skip for now.
