Constant Blue Screen with Error: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (Win 10)

Recommended Posts

I've had my PC crash 5 times now today with this error message. It never happened before and it was behaving completely normally before today. Does anyone know how to fix this?

That error means your overclocking or your CPU or RAM is not stable.  I suggest go into BIOS and set to defaults and see if it happens again.

Neither of them are overclocked though.

Can you check in this BIOS as to your DRAM speed and the DRAM timings ?  If they are set correctly and your still getting that BSOD that usually means RAM issues.  You might want to try a stick of RAM at a time.  I mean it is either CPU or RAM and I doubt its CPU so do the RAM thingie one of the sticks maybe faulty.  Also please let us know your complete system specs so we can help you better.

This Stop message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory address to which it did not have permission to access.

 

99% of the time this error is caused by a driver issue.  Troubleshooting those isn't always easy. 

Never had to deal with Bluescreens on Win10, but I did on 8.1 when I tried that on my main PC.  There I used a tool called BlueScreenView to read the crash dumps and some Google-fu to find the culprit.

So after updating my graphics drivers, it stopped for a few hours, then started up again. Then after doing some weird changes to get devices into MSI mode it also stopped for a while, and now it started again.

So I ran Blue Screen View and here is the error log from that:
