IRQL Not less or equal to

I just received a new notebook and have loaded very little software on this machine. Every time I boot up I get the blue screen with that error referencing a memory location.

I then have to boot into safe mode. Once into safe mode I can just restart the machine and it comes up just fine.

I do log an event in the event viewer but it is not much help.

Event ID: 1003   Category 102
System error. I ensured I have all the latest drivers for my hardware. Is there any way to determine exactly what is causing this.

I figure the easiest way is just to reload the machine, its just such a pain to have to load from scratch.

Its 99% certain that this is a driver issue.

To rule out a memory error dowmload an run memtest - its in the ultimate boot CD http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html

Try restarting with Last Known Good Configuration (press F8 before windows starts to load and select it from the menu), this will role back the machine to the point when a logon was last sucessful.

KCTS is correct that it's usually a driver problem --> especially since it doesn't occur in safe mode.

The most common clprit is the video driver. What else does error message contain?

I had this problem on a desktop before and it ended up being bad memory.  Well actually memory was good but not good when used with the other 2 memory sticks I was using.

I have already run memtest with no issues. I downlaoded the latest video card driver.
I will add more information when I get back to it this evening.
Is there any way to tell which driver is causing the problem? I ensured I had the latest video card driver.

Video card is Nvidia 7950 GTX

Sometimes it helps to back up a revision or two on video driver. New drivers can be unstable.

OK, I will try to give that a shot tonight.
Could a NIC driver cause this issue?

willcompCommented:
Yes - most any driver can. Video is just the most common cause.
