Another BSOD while playing games

  1. Hi there,

    I've been looking for some help regarding this issue. It has become more frequent over the last 2 months. Each time, the message is the same:

    driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

    I have attached the most recent save.dmp file.

    Could someone advise as to what the issue might be?

    I built this pc 2 years back and haven't had many issues with it until this. I have recently updated my sound and video drivers in an effort to tackle the issue but with no success. I am using on-board sound.

    Have you tested your RAM yet?

    Thanks for your response.

    Yes. I ran memtest overnight with no issues. Is there a way to read the minidump file to decode what has caused the issue?

    I had a problem very similar to this and I put my RAM in a different slot and everything was fine. You might want to try that as well.
