    Sigh, Blue Screen of Death, I've tried everything

    Hello all,

    Ok so I built my new computer about a week ago, and I'm having a BSOD problem. It seems to happen randomly, but one thing for sure sets it off is when I'm using uTorrent, or any other bittorrent program. This isn't the only cause, but it's defintely one of them. I know because I can reboot and leave my comp alone and it'll be fine for hours, but if I just run utorrent, it'll BSOD after 10-20mins.

    The BSOD problem is "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL." From what I know this is caused by a Driver issue (that's why i'm posting it in the Drivers forum.) However, i've updated EVERY driver to the latest and it's still happening. I've done windows update, latest bios, latest motherboard drivers (located here TinyURL.com - shorten that long URL into a Tiny URL ), sound card driver, video card driver (running a GTX 260), VIA V-Raid driver, and keyboard+mouse driver. I don't know what else to update. I even downloaded a program called Driver Genius Professional to find anything missing, but still nope.

    Also, I downloaded memtest86 to make sure my ram is all good, and it passed with no errors.

    I'm so f*cking frustrated by this.

    Can anyone help me out? No suggestion is too stupid. Someone told me I need to make sure my "IRQLs" are the same, but I have no idea what that is or how I fix it. I formatted my harddrive before I put it in my new comp, so there isn't any lingering files that could be causing this.



    Thanks in advance,
    Andrew.

    List your computer specs.
    Have you checked the settings in the bios.
    Ensure you are only using the drivers from the hardware manufacturers.
    Look at device manager to see if there are any problems in there.
    Have a look in your error logs.

    Mayday try booting with your original Vista disk and carry on until you see the repair option.

    Try and repair from that option first before doing anything else, that sometimes sorts it right out.

    Can you boot into safe mode?
    Have you run virus software?
    Click on Start
    Right click on computer and choose manage
    Look at reliability and performance
    Look at reliability monitor, this will give you an idea of what is going wrong and when.
    Also look through the event viewer, this gives you a better detailed version of what is going on and when.

    Re: Sigh, Blue Screen of Death, I've tried everything

    I can boot into safe mode,
    No I don't have virus software, but I don't have a virus. I'm a advance computer user, I know what i'm doing/downloading/browsing (plus it BSOD on the first day when i built it.)

    I'm been watching the reliability monitor, but it all seems normal. No super spikes, no errors out of nowhwere... just BSOD.

    Any other suggestions guys?

    A virus can hit any computer user. I have not had one either, but it is also web sites that get targeted.

    I would look at your ethernat. Is it only when on the web or at other simes you are getting the error.

    It is definatly a driver issue if it is working in safe mode.
