i built the computer in September sometime so its not that old but today when playing fortnite i got a BSOD it said
IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL then about an hr ago im watching youtube and i got it again so i did a google found a video and i did what it said i ran a window memory diagnostics and scanned the sdd using chkdsk and both are fine and like 40mins or so latter i got it again

this pc has no gpu i just use the cpu vega 11 also cpu temps are fine

so what could be causing this problem? or what other things can i try to that might resolve this?

Reset the ram and run memtest86+. The windows tool is garbage and won't detect an issue. Also, make sure all drivers and firmware are updated. It could also be messed up OS so reinstalling Windows is a good idea.

Seems to be a memory related issue. Reseat memory modules, also check if the slots have any dust or gunk inside.


system out println("Please don't drop it Linus!");

Setup:

 

CPU: AMD FX-8350, ( overclocked it to 4,8Ghz) 

CPU Cooler: Enermax Lepa aquachanger 240M 

Motherboard: Gigabyte 990XA UD-3 Rev 3.0 

RAM: Samsung 1600Mhz 8Gb kit 

GPU: Gigabyte RX470 G1 gaming ( overclocked to 1275Mhz + 1800Mhz memory ) 

PSU: EVGA 80+ 600w 

Case: Cooler Master Masterbox MB520 RGB 

Monitors: Samsung Curved 2560x1440, 1ms, Full HD Orion TV 

Keyborad and mouse: Generic IBM keyboard, Asus ROG Strix Impact mouse

 

Some comic sans because why not 🤷‍♂️

my friend came over he told me to try do a sfc scan
i did a sfc scan in cmd and it said found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them :(

did a google and tried
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth in cmd restarted pc and ran the sfc scan and got
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them

did a sfc scan again and got Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

would this have been the problem causing the BSOD if i get another BSOD i will update this post

i got this error message longtime ago but when i mean longtime ago it was like in 2008, and if i remember it was about driver incompatibility instead of the ram..

I would recommend installing chipset drivers, gpu drivers, network drivers, audio drivers from the motherboard manufacturer site, from there, manually search each driver up (for example if we're installing audio driver for onboard audio, and you've installed it from the motherboard manufacturer's website, search it up on google to see if you can find the latest one.)

 

I had that same BSOD many times, and for me it was always driver incompatibility. Always avoid driver updater software if you use them.
