Hi. I just finished my first build about 3 months ago, and everytihng was nice and dandy until NOW I start getting the blue screen of death. It says something like error dxgmms1.sys driver_irql_not_less_than_or_equal. I did just some limited resarch on the net, and people are saying that I should try to update my drivers. I updated the video card driver, I`m pretty sure I got the latest motherboard bios, and W7 says no current updates available. Now the last time it happned to me I was watching a movie so I figured it might be the video card? But on the net people say I should run memtest. So i did and while it was running it killed again?. So is the RAM or the video card, how can I find out? Any help is appreciated. :):confused:


Specs:
OS: W7 64 bit
MOBO: Gigabyte G41M-ES2L
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.67 Ghz
GPU: ATI Radeon 4600
PSU: Corsair 750 W
RAM: 2x 2GB Corsair XMS

yeah, that would be memory. the first thing that i would try to do is move the ram sticks to a different slot in the mb. if that doesn't work try runnnig the system on just one stick of memory. if it runs fine on one stick but doesn;t on the other, its a memory problem with that stick and you would need to get a new stick.
