Help BSOD Error DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I need help because I've been having BSOD errors randomly ever so often. It always says DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. It gives me these stop codes:
0x100000d1 (0x004d3a50, 0x00000002, 0x00000008, 0x004d3a50)
I've had a lot of stop codes similar to this and this BSOD come randomly, fairly often.

I really need help as I have been looking everywhere on the internet and there are no solutions. My pc is pretty new (made in March) and I don't want it to keep on dying on me. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Hey, that BSOD is often related to unstable RAM, I would run 6 loops of Memtest (should be pretty fast considering the speed of the RAM and the fact that it's only 2GB) and run maybe like 1H of Prime95 Blend Testing (we aren't stressing for an OC, so 1H is more than enough). If you get no errors in those tests, well the problems do not come from your hardware, I would start looking into drivers, make sure that you are using the latest drivers for everything, also, if you installed Windows XP with the SATA Controller set as AHCI in the BIOS, make sure that you install the Intel Matrix Storage Controller or the system will run unstable and you will get these kind of BSODs.

you might have gone to far with your overclock.
that's the same thing i go when i overclocked to far..

if so you might want to back off the overclock a bit.
or push you vcore up a tad.....what ever it is you probably sort it

agreed. also try to run a bit more voltage into your ram and CPU see how that goes. did you install windows fresh when you made your rig? if you did then check that you have the right drivers

I installed windows fresh with the rig. I also have Intel Matrix Storage console. I'll try the memory tests.

Memtest 86+ for a few passes with your RAM at stock settings (vCore, Timing, and Freq.)

It's the most likely problem, with the easiest fix...

my pc also randomly reboots sometimes without a bsod. The hardrive makes a click sound when this happens.

The click sound is most likely the HDD powering down and it shouldn't pose a problem, though if you happen to be in an earthquake while it BSODs, you could have a head crash, which isn't very good

I had the same problems while my ram was overclocked... So a memtest may show what your problem is. Remember that one error is bad... I had over 2860 in 8 passes

Ya one error is bad, even if it's only 1 in 6 loops, most likely if you start having one error, you will accumulate a lot more. Ya, if the hard makes a clicking noise, 2 reasons and one possibility:
-Writing memory dump to disk
-Powering Down
-Your HDD is pwned

Install Speedfan and check the S.M.A.R.T Status of your hard drive, anything above 90% is safe, considering that Speedfan seems not to report numbers properly all the time (when I got my HDD, 100% fitness/performance, after another reformat, 92% fitness/performance, gradually increased up to 95% lol)

I've done three passes so far and there have been no errors. Is it normal for a pass to take 20 minutes? Should I keep on testing?
