IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and more...
Posted on 2003-02-19
Hello everyone, I really pray i can get some good answers here b/c I can't seem to find anyone with a good idea anywhere. I get irql not less or equal b.s.o.d. all the time now!!! I use a kt3 ultra2 series mobo w/ amd 2100+ xp proc. two sticks of 2100 ddr. 256 each(one is pny and one is elixir)all drivers are up to date. nvidia gforce 2 mx 400 up to date driver 30 gig wd hd 7200
i hope i covered all the important specs.
anyway i get this error message during the most random times, playing games, movies, etc. lead me to believe graphic intensive prog. were the problem until I started getting the message in i.e. brower. sometimes during defrag i get it. and just today I got bad pool caller several times in a row during a reboot from the b.s.o.d from irql error. (hence the name goingapeshithere):)
i have tried using just one stick of ram or the other-which didn't work for me.
i have tried both sticks in on com 1 and 3-didn't work for me either.
i have reinstalled the os ( xp pro) ~9 times in all now- still getting errors.
i have had an mcse look at it 4 $65/hour for one hour in which he ran diag. testing on hardware- this did nothing.
I have tried kicking the computer down the stairs and this only seems to cause more problems :)~ j/k but i am about to.
if anyone can suggest anytime at all i would greatly appreciate it.
