Win XO Pro displays MSG: "IRQL_NOT LESS OR EQUAL" on blue screen. Sounds like a hardware compatibility problem with SMCWPCI-G2 wireless card adapater. Any hints on how to solve this?

    ButtFuz, Tx for your input. It helps me narrow down the problem. Eventually I managed to escalate the rating of the it; at this point I can keep the system stabiliized and working OK all the way till PC shut down. But (and there´s always a but) the problem haunts me back when rebooting, so I need to get thru the whole process of installing drivers, configuring connection etc.all over again. Seems like a loss of hardware configuration???. I found out that the driver installs at IRQ 7 same as the USB-PCI controller and this does´nt pose a problem like I said till rebboting. My BIOS´s got two ways to manage IRQ´s, automatic and manual, but can´t figure out to assign the right IRQ. Another way out, what if instead of shutting down the conflicting USB-PCI driver I just go an unsinstall it?, Tx again.

    Easiest way to diagnose conflicting hardware is to remove the hardware from the PC that you do no need. This includes everything except processor, memory, and video. With the fewest things in the PC from the start, if it boots, turn it off and add 1 device at a time. Note where the error message pops up again. If it turns out all your other devices work fine until you plug in the wireless card, you can narrow it down to a problem with the wireless (or other device that it fails on).

This almost always seems to be an IRQ conflict that the BIOS can't resolve with its plug n pray skills. When this conflict is passed to XP at boot-up time, XP panics and blasts you with this error message.

Before you start pulling cards, go about pulling cards, go into the BIOS and change the IRQ of the on-board compnents, if you can, and also disable any on-board components that are not needed. (such as the parallel port, on-board ethernet connection, etc.)

Use a utility like Nirsoft BlueScreenView to find the stop code from the crash dump. This may also allow you to identify the driver causing the issue.

If your USB ports are malfunctioning, this may indicate a hardware issue with either the ports, motherboard, or PSU. Check for obstructions, broken connectors or other such problems.

Please reply with more information such as the server model information, stop code, driver name, etc. for more help.

IRQ nOT LESS OR EQUAL HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP


irql not less or equal sounds like a graphics driver problem. All you needed to do was boot up in safe mode and remove the gfx driver and the OS would have rebooted with the default driver and then you could have reinstalled it
