Hi people.
Sorry to bring up such a common issue, but (as the old saying goes) "I'm getting BSODs!"
My system has been running stably for months and i havnt added any new hardware recently either, yet ive started to recieve BSODs complaining about 'DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.' I assume it has something to do with a hardware driver which is causing conflicts, but like i said, i havnt changed anything like that recently. I have even reinstalled windows, but the problem persists, albiet rarer.

If anyone has any advice on how to find out what is causing these problems, or a possible solution, I would be very grateful for your help.
Thanks in advance

Hold down windows key and tap the pause break key.

Click the advanced tab.

Click startup and recovery.

Un-tick the box that says "Automatically Restart".

Now when you get a BSOD - it will stay on screen so you can post the message it displays and we can diagnose the problem for you.

Genius :D

If you have a crash dump you could upload it and someone who can actually read them (don't look at me) could analysis it. Or maybe the crash is in the event viewer (i doubt it).
