Windows 7: Driver IRQL not less or equal

Driver IRQL not less or equal

I get these BSODs anytime at irregular basis, it can happen while playing games or when just browsing on the web.
I have several programs loading automatically so I can't see which program, if any, that cause the problem.
I've tried to update all drivers but maybe I missed some.
Please help me, it's annoying the s**t out of me

In order to uninstall previous one: On screen right click-->Personalize-->Display-->Change display setting-->Advance setting-->In adapter tab choose properties-->driver tab then uninstall

Having the time of my life right now (sitting on my old computer) since I got a BSOD during my installation of the new Nvidia video card driver. So now my new computer is as useful as a grinder in a sandstorm. It BSODs on startup, tries to repair and BSODs, back to new start and BSOD ...
I've reset the computer to factory default and it continues with the BSODs can't even get the minidumps.

Hi gresve
can you describe problem more detail please? You said that you've reset the computer to factory default and it countinue with BSODs, does it happend when you startup computer or randomly.
If you don't see any .dmp file in minidump folder, you might have to enable system to create minidump files:
Windows 7:
Go to Start and type in "sysdm.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Click on the Advanced tab
Click on the Startup and Recovery Settings button
Ensure that "Automatically restart" is unchecked
Under the Write Debugging Information header select "Small memory dump (64 kB)" in the dropdown box
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as "%systemroot%\Minidump" (without the quotes)
Click OK twice to exit the dialogs, then reboot for the changes to take effect.

Run this free video stress test (instruction below):
