    Hello,

    For the last weeks or so i have been experiencing the IRQL_NOT_OR_EQUAL Blue Screen. I'm not terribly good at debugging this sort of stuff and was wondering if anyone could help.

    Here's a dump:

    windows version: Windows 7 , 6.1, build: 7600
    windows dir: C:\Windows
    CPU: AuthenticAMD AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor AMD586, level: 16
    4 logical processors, active mask: 15
    RAM: 4285595648 total
    VM: 2147352576, free: 1985671168

    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

    There could be many culprits for the error message you are getting.

    1.) Have you tried updating all drivers? (it is possible there may be driver incompatibilities)

    2.) Do you have a sufficient, good power supply?

    As far as i know all my drivers are up to date. I used Windows Update to check and i went through the Device Manager manually searching for new drivers (found none).

    As for the PSU, it'w a 750w unit. I hoping this is enough as it's what the system came with and i haven't updated any component since purchase.

    Thanks

    You can try a memory test using memtest

    http://www.memtest86.com/download.html

    You will have to burrn an ISO image to CD and then start the PC with the disc in....but before you can try this:

    click Start>>Run type cmd click Ok.

    In the Command Prompt type chkdsk /r click Enter Note there is a space between chkdsk and /r

    You will be asked if you want a check disk to run on next startup click Y and then press Enter

    Restart your PC

    It will run in 5 sections please do not interrupt it let it finish.

    OK, did the chkdsk which came up with no error. I downloaded the memtest iso and burned the image to a CD but my comp doesn't want to boot from the disc. I burnt the image straight from the .zip as instructed but nothing :(
