Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
Hi.. I hve a Hp Pavilion dv4000 laptop bot from UAE. Working perfectly fine with just 1 prob.whn ever i shutdown the machine a error appears in blue screen "IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL" I hve consulted a local service centre who suggested me to go for a FORMAT of the whole system.
I'll be very gr8 full to You if you could guide me with a solution to this without Formatting, . Thanx in advance.
Reformatting is a little drastic.
This is a somewhat common driver error - when your machine sends out the signal to devices to shut down, one of them is throwing errors (bad ones) in the shut-down process. You need to find the hardware (or less likely, software) device that is not shutting down properly.
It is very often video drivers; try changing your video drivers to the Microsoft defaults and then shutting down, rebooting, and shutting down again. If the IRQ error does not turn up, you have a video driver error, and need to visit the HP web site and get the latest video drivers for that laptop model.
If it is not the video driver, you need to look into what new drivers or devices have been installed that might be non-standard. Unplug the laptop from everything that plugs in - USB devices, printers, SD and USB memory devices, hubs, everything. If this fixes the problem work backwards until you have re-installed the problem device and try to uninstall and install it again with the latest drivers.
It might also be the wireless network facility not shutting down properly. Try shutting this off in the hardware (with the wireless button on the keybaord) and DISABLING it in network settings and try shutting down.
Once you find the hardware device that is not shutting down properly, UNINSTALLING it in the DEVICE MANAGER and then rebooting and reinstalling it from scratch with the latest drivers usually works.
