Help - BSOD "irql not less or equal" during login

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Ok, I was using ATItool to OC my 8800GTS, and I think I went about 5mhz too high or something (I was upping it in small amounts), and it eventually froze. Now, whenever I try to turn on my comp and log into windows, I get the BSOD saying "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". I can, however, start up in safe mode with no problems. Is the high clock speed being saved somehow and crashing upon startup when it tries to load those saved values? Any help would be much appreciated, the sooner the better!

Do a search in here, there are many posts on the subject.
BTW, there are many things that are the cause.

yeah but my error was DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

i did a full driver update and never saw it again...restoring your clocks to default may help as well, if you havent already

I did, and none of them were too helpful. Most posts on the subject never got resolved. If I missed one that had a solution, and I missed it, please link it for me

i tried to reset my clocks, but the only way I can get into windows is in safe mode, and ATItool has all the buttons grayed out, so I can't do anything with the settings. I actually just uninstalled ATItool in safe mode, along with all its settings. Is there another way to tweak the clock settings?

It happened to me ages ago on my previous rig when I had to get a new video card (or that's what the shop told me). However, trusting my instincts, I had a feeling it was simply the drivers. I reinstalled the drivers after doing a full driver clean and all was fine
