BSOD - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - Help to find the cause

Hi Guys.

I have had the BSOD - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error for about a week now. It has no patteren and seem to happen at total random either while idle on desktop or in a game. and it can be after everything from 10 seconds to 2 hours from boot up. I have not had any recent hardware changes or new software and no new drivers recently. I have check my memory and found nothing and i have also tried to move the memory around and remove 1 of the memory sticks without it helping. I am at a total loss here and really need help trying to find the source for the crash.

The error i get is

fffffa80 15d16370
00000000 000000002
00000000 000000001
fffff800 035818c6

Here is some helpful information:

This error is generally from buggy software or a buggy device driver. If you haven't installed anything lately, then perhaps a buggy update got installed on your computer. Do you have auto updates turned on for any of your programs, including Windows? That could be where this issue came from.
