Windows 7: pci.sys driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

pci.sys driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

Ok, I have had I beleive 5 blue screens, one 3/12, 3/17, 3/18, 3/19, 3/20 I believe, I can't remember more
the newest two I had set windows to not auto restart
I also had it set to dump ram, but its not doing that, is it an issue with being on an nvme?

I have 2 candidates for what is causing this, one being xbox controller drives, and one being scptoolkit and my bluetooth not liking each other. I have another one where called hydrus that i'm looking into but given what the dev has said so far, im doubting it to be the culprit.

The drivers, I have already disabled them, and killed the xbox ones process, the last blue screen was 3/20
i'm on day 4 of uptime right now, the drivers were installed on 3/4 and considering I was getting them daily almost, I think that may have been the cause but im not 100% sure.
also on 3/20 I did a chkdsk
Checking file system on C: The type of the file system is NTFS. Volume lab -
Is there anything there that may have helped with the issue? I have no idea what im looking at when it come to this, but it seems like it did some things.

I want to get this fixed if possible without needing to format or use windows disc
While I have a key and installed from a legitimate iso, I have the issue of not only being on nvme, but also not having usb 2 ports, making reinstall at best a nightmare and at worst repair impossible. I know you can inject drivers into the iso, but that's beyond me and the 1000~ step tutorial near impossible for me to follow.

any help with this is greatly appreciated, I'm hoping this doesn't come down to me needing to get another hdd to install windows on to mirror to the ssd again.

To determine which one is the culprit, you can run MSCONFIG, and go to the Services tab, to disable all suspect services, Apply, Reboot, then use the computer for a while, to see if the problem has been solved.

If the problem has been solved, then run MSCONFIG to re-enable one of the services you disabled, Apply, Reboot, then use the computer for a while, to see if the problem returns.

If the problem doesn't return after using the computer for a while, go back into MSCONFIG, disable the service you just re-enabled, and re-enable another one of the suspect services, Apply, Reboot, then use the computer for a while, to see if the problem returns.

Continue this process, enabling only one of the suspect services at a time, till you find the one that is the culprit. At that point, go back into MSCONFIG and enable all services except for that one; disable it, Apply, Reboot, and use the computer for a while, to see if the problem returns.

The above procedure may take a while, but it will correctly identify which service is the culprit, and will allow you to disable the misbehaving service.

If you can't find the culprit this way, then go back into MSCONFIG, go to the Services tab, and hide all Microsoft services. Then disable all of the services that are still showing on the screen (i.e. the non-Microsoft services), apply, reboot, and try out the computer for a while. If the problem has disappeared, then repeat the above process for all of the non-Microsoft services, enabling one at a time, rebooting, and trying the computer out for a while. You will eventually find which service(s) is causing the problem.

just under 8 days of uptime now, I think I hit what was causing the blue screen but I want 1 month of uptime to say that this was it.

and bluescreen, I can't tell how long It has been, but between 14 and 21 days of uptime.
This time I went in and killed both suspected things entirely, removing everything I could from them
I still have no memory dump, will win 7 not dump to an nvme drive?
it appears to be the exact same issue bsod to bsod
