A driver is corrupted and loads abnormally - this can be either one of a device or from a program that deals directly with the kernel : an antivirus, a backup.
The best, fastest and easiest way to deal with this is to reinstall windows then load one driver and program at a time until the bsod comes back - upgrade or replace the faulty one

(PTZ930AC) Graphic Tablet: I'm getting "driver irql not less or equal" error ...


If you are getting the "irql_not_less_or_equal" BSOD after the install of the drivers then if is possible that you did not get a clean install of the drivers and/or there is something wrong with the device. To let me better see what is going on I need the stop code. The link below will help you get that info from the BSOD.

Note Window XP 64bit was a transition operating system to help manufactures to write 64bit drivers and software for the 64bit operating systems. However there is alot of products out there that eventhough they have Windows 7/Vista 64bit support they do not have XP 64bit support.

1 Answer

My dell E521 is now getting STOP errors after installin a video c

there is an IRQ conflict(internal adressing all the hardware parts)
you may want to set all the IRQ options in BIOS to auto and let the BIOS handle the IRQ adressing, disable the plug'n'play OS feature too so that the computer hardware manages the IRQs instead of windows. The blue screen is a sign that windows is causing problems, but done the way described this no longer will appear.

good luck

Bsod on a ibm thinkpad t30 xp sp3

Normally this indicates some kind of resource conflict between device. Could be you just updated drivers for a device, or a new device was installed/used.
From the device manager you should be able to find out which devices have a resource conflict.
Other details on the driver irql not less or equal error might help you as well.

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

The Stop 0xD1 messages indicates that the system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. Drivers that have used improper addresses typically cause this error.

Possible Resolutions:

• Stop 0xD1 messages can occur after installing faulty drivers or system services. If a driver is listed by name, disable, remove, or roll back that driver to confirm that this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer about a possible update. Using updated software is especially important for backup programs, multimedia applications, antivirus scanners, DVD playback, and CD mastering tools.
