IRQ NOT LESS OR EQUAL
After my scintillating first post above, I will try again!
I have had this problem over this weekend.
I have scoured the web to find a resolution. I have seen every possible cause from, bad drivers, RAM, antivirus software, firewall, irq settings, bust mobo, etc etc etc
Here’s what i have done to resolve the problem. One of these, or all, or a combination of some, have worked for me they may work for you. They are all found in the previous posts within this thread.
I have updated EVERY driver that I could for my system. MOBO, chipset, bios, usb, sound, video, etc etc etc. EVERYTHING
I Moved my PCI modem, from the first PCI slot, away from the AGP slot
I manually switched the PCI irq to the highest setting in the bios
I removed a side panel from my system to allow more ventallation. (i will add xtra fans tonight)
The result of all of this has been that the system now works fine. The cpu obviously runs a lot cooler and the writing procedure works great.
The whole BSOD driver irql not less or equal thing is a mess. There is so much conflicting advice. I say find as much advice as you can get and work through the things one by one. The PCI slot spacing, drivers update, bios update and System Temp’ should be where the problem could be resolved.
I hope this has given some hope to somebody. Yesterday I was ready to throw it all in the bin and strangle the wife. Today I have tranquility all around. Tried doing it without my SB card in, at the time i had an nvidia geforce mmx 440, now i have a radeon prophet 3d 9200, so its not a nvidia driver, nor it is a SB driver since i did not have the SB card installed at that point. But instead used my onboard sound.
Everytime i get this BSOD is appereantly when my system is doing something very demanding, such as loading a game with heavy graphics, or moving large/many files from one drive http://www.cheapjerseys11.com/ to another. So why am I getting it? I dont have nvidia installed.
>> Re: , bad ram?
Hey guys this is my first post. But today i went to a computer show and picked up a new hardrive, soundcard, and an extra stick of ram. When i installed them all and booted up i got the irq less error. Now the ram im using is not cheap ram. Its like some of the best or better ddr modules out there. 1 stick is corsair xms 256mb pc2700 and the other cheap jerseys is 256mb pc3200. Now i thought that they would coexist nicely but i gues not. What i did is turn down my ram timings from the tubo setting in the bios ( cl2 ) to normal. And it booted up fine. Do you guys think there any way i can get back up to the turbo timings or am i going to be stuck with these normal settings.
