DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I just recently purchased almost all new internal parts for my computer,

650w power supply, motherboard, nvidia video card and i went to install it all (format hard drive, re install windows) and as i am nearly done with the re install i get DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL as well as some other BS on a blue screen, i have tried pulling out one of my memory sticks and one of my video cards, and still no luck.  I tried to follow the vague instructions someone else had on here...and couldn't figure out WTH they where saying.  Any help would be great.  I have built 3 computers now and havne't had this problem before.

First thing I would try is a different power supply, A faulty power supply can cause a string of seemingly unrelated errors. The irq_not_less_or_equal is generally a hardware error and the pfn_list_corrupt is a memory error. Also try running memtest86 on the ram, you can find it on the net and its free. Also I have seen motherboards fail during their burn in period which can be hard to diagnose if you dont have parts that you can swap out to test. Just out of interest its not an Asus board is it?

That is one of the less funny errors.
I used to have it sometimes, too. But then I updated NVidia's graphic card drivers and AMCC / 3ware's Raid drivers and it was gone forever. Do you have any NVidia or 3ware devices ?
What was the last hardware you had installed ?

the first thing i would do is test the RAm with memtest86+ from  http://www.memtest.org/      
another thing to try is to do the install with the minimum devices connected : 1harddisk and 1 cd, 1 video card, keyb + mouse.
when the install is done, reconnect the devices 1 by one, and install them

This error indicates bad or incompatible RAM.  Do you have any "known good" ram you can test with?
0
nobusCommented:
since it is a new build, check if the ram is compatible with the mobo too  at www.kingston.com or the manufacturers site.

ok.....yes this is a new build one of the only old parts is the memory.  I ordered new memory yesterday that unless my luck holds up should be good memory.  As far as i know my memory is compatible but i don't know how it couldn't be.  The memory i ordered is OCZ ddr2 5400 unbuffered, the motherboard is a foxconn nf4sli7aa w/2 nvidia geforce g8000 xtreme

for the guy that said try re installing with only 1 hd 1 cd rom 1 mem stick so on and so on...tried that.  Also tried re partitioning and re formatting could it be at all possible that the Disk i have is bad?  I also tried the bios and putting it to default settings, but laoding the cd-rom first....still same thing..

nobusCommented:
did you check if the ram is compatible?
could you partition and format ok ?
0
socrfolifeAuthor Commented:
no problems partitioning or formating....The memory i have no way of testing except to try one at a time....which is what i did...and neither of them worked....or with both they messed up...i just bought another pair of memory sticks, same ones...so hopefully they work.  but i won't know until later tonight when i can get back to my computer.

You can test your memory easily with memtest86 but ram being at fault for both these errors is a long shot.
As I stated earlier you need to try a different power supply

There is another thing that causes random errors and its cpu overheating. I hope your not trying to get this thing going with the cpu overclocked. Check the cpu fan is seated properly and start fresh with just 1 video card.
If after that it still bsod then take your mainboard back and get it replaced.

ok, the problem could be to do with the memory, but you're going to rule that out soon.

i would be looking at the motherboard

DISABLE everything you can live without (for testing purposes) in the BIOS, reboot then see how it goes. If you get a different error or something changesl the problem could be to do with your BIOS.

check for BIOS updates, if there are any, flash it.

once flashed, test to see how it behaves.

If its the BIOS, then it will behave differently again.

Good Luck
