Windows 7: Getting IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD while normal tasking.

Windows 7 x64
Hi, experts what does this dump file say?

Hi, can someone read this dump file for me.

The other day when I was trying to move some files from one folder to another the computer suddenly turned off by itself.

When I started it again I got a message that overclocking BIOS has failed, although I have not oveclocked it.

Once I logged in with default BIOS settings, I tried to open the C drive and the Computer turned off again instantly, no warnings.

The motherboard has two BIOS, so I switched to the other by changing the pin, also I cleared the CMOS. Today I ran a full test on the HDD with "Seatools".

It ran for nearly 3 hours and reported no errors.

After testing I reinstalled Windows 7 again, formatting the C drive.

I finished installing SP1 and kb3125574. Then installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2017. While KIS 2017 was updating I was browsing and suddenly I got a BSOD.

I am not sure what's going on. Before the BSOD I removed the other two HDD. I cleaned the power connectors for the HDD, motherboards and CPU. Haven't done anything with the memories yet.

I have been doing some heavy 3d works recently. Rendering for hours. Can the PSU be at fault here, because I was getting intermittent power failures with my previous PSU too.

And after replacing it, the problem went away.

I have uploaded the dmp file.

I will be very grateful for any helps. Please suggest some solutions.

Hi, axe0 thank you for the response. Although I have not encountered anymore more BSOD, I would like to know what that dump file says. Also how do I read that file by my own?

Hello Hubba mate if you want out see how the PSU is functioning use this
Using HW Info
You can test the volts on the PSU with HW Info HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download < download the right bit version and close the right hand window select Sensors and scroll down to the power section where you will see what the volts are doing see my pic. In my pic the section (Nuvoton) with VBATT as a dead give away you are in the section for the rail voltages. There are other section titles and one that pops up often is ITE (sometimes the usual one for Gigabyte boards)
Now the voltage on the different rails have to be within 5% =+/- of what is required or the machine will not work properly if at all.
Limits +/-
12v = 11.4 12.6v
5v = 4.74 5.25v
3.3v = 3.135 3.465v
The Power good signal voltage at pin 8 on the 24 pin plug (grey cable) should be the same as the 5v rail reading/s
See this for the rail voltage info
PSUs 101: A Detailed Look Into Power Supplies (Section 2.)
The original right hand window shows the machine running and is handy for that but for looking at the components in some detail close it and use the main left hand side panel
Open each small square with + in it on the section the components are in and then click on the individual component/s (it will highlight in blue) - in the right hand side will appear all sorts of details including brands speeds and other essential info that particular device. See pic for example.
Just use PART A:

Now I use Kaspersky on all my machines and for some time now the latest 2017 does have a few bugs still and it might be worth disabling it for a test run to see if the BSOD comes up again or not.

Hi, ICIT2LOL thank you for the valuable information, it will definitely help me out.

Hi, axe0, from the report I see errors and warnings with klim6.sys which seems to be a component of Kaspersky. Maybe Kaspersky caused the BSOD? But what is still confusing me is why the sudden power loss happened when I tried to move files from one folder to another.

I will check my PSU.

But meanwhile thanks for your assistance.

The question, is that driver being blamed because it is the cause or is it being blamed because the root cause is deeper in the dump?

That is a question we cannot answer with what we know now, because what we currently know is limited, so we normally need to test what we know. Kaspersky looks to be causing issues, so the suggestion would be to uninstall Kaspersky and let the user test the system stability to verify our thoughts.

Yep well uninstall the Kaspersky remembering the removal tool will keep certain info on the software and if you want it completely removed then go to regedit (HKEYS > Software) to do that.

However my advice would be to just use the tool to keep the activation code in the machine. Like I said KISS does have some bugs and you may have something else on the machine that it doesn't like - for example I know that MBAM does from time to time upset it

Hi, today I got the unexpected shutdown again. Like ICIT2LOL suggested I checked the voltages with HWiNFO64 v5.42-3050. This is the screenshot. Is the voltage low for the 5 volt rail?
