Check your windows error logs in event viewer. The part you posted is pretty much useless.

Your problem is you've spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren't. We used to be gorillas.

I had another 5x BSOD's today. But my computer isn't creating any dump files. Do I have to have "automatically restart" enabled? I wrote down the BSOD details, which are:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

STOP: 0x0000000A 0x000000000000000 0x000000000000002 0x000000000000001 0xFFFFF80003091C3F


1) Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2) click System and then Advanced System Settings
3) Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
4) In the Write debugging information list, click Small memory dump (256k) or Kernel Memory Dump

Keep in mind that those go in different spots.. so if you're using small memory dumps, it goes in one place and the full dumps in another, but you can change those locations.

Also if you look it sometimes tells you which driver or program is causing the error.... next time it happens look near the bottom to see if it mentions a certain file

I was getting those errors a few years back. irql not less or equal. Google didn't really do anything for me. Tried a bunch stuff with no results finally just reformatted and everything was fine.


I've already reformatted, but still get the same errors.


Oh I see, well at least that narrows it down to hardware problems then. It's most likely ram or gpu then. Do you have alternates of either you could test out?

Drugs are never the answer, unless the question is what isn't the answer.

Nope, I don't have any other hardware to test. I've just ordered some blank discs, I'm going to run memtest once I've got them. I'm hoping it's my RAM. When I first built this PC in november, for the first 2 months, I had about 4x random BSOD's/freezes while doing stuff like browsing/gaming. Then it was fine till a week ago, when my PC started getting BSOD's again, but this time it's each time I boot up.

If my memtest results are clear. Is there anyway to test whether it's the GPU or other hardware?

I've just ran memtest86 and it came up with no errors. Is there anyway to check my other hardware such as the GPU?

0x1A = Memory management error. It usually means a bad stick of Ram. Test with Memtest, try raising your Ram voltage, or south bridge ICH voltage.

once I got BSODs right after I installed FRAPS. I reformatted and never got a BSOD again.

Not sure how that helps.
