Blue Screen of Death

  1. Hi all !!

    My computer had been getting alot of BSoD since the end of last month. I had already tried system restore, checking my CPU and ran the memtest86 test on my rams but there are no errors and the restore didn't work. I had also updated every single drivers on the computer and non of them are out of date. Anyway, this is the error message that I get everytime my comp crashes.

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_EQUAL
    STOP: 0x0000000A (0x00000166, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x804FAADA)

    I had attached all the minidump files since the very first errors.
    Can anyone please help me analyze the files and look for the error?

    I just ran the windows debugging software and this is what i come up with for all of the dump file except the Mini021109-03 which is different.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
    An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
    interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
    caused by drivers using improper addresses.
    If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 00000166, memory referenced
    Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
    Arg3: 00000000, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
    Arg4: 804faada, address which referenced memory

    Apparently it is Idle that's causing the problem. Anyone have any idea on what that is?

    Actually that's true :(
    Also you get this huge splash screen (that I'm sure you've seen now)

    But is it an excellent Antivirus?... YES :grinthumb

    As for AVG :suspiciou Not so good :rolleyes:

    I as well personally vote Avira over AVG :)

    I've tried virus outbreaks with AVG and Avast, they couldn't do anything... but if you're loooking for the best, its paid...

    Bitdefender and Kaspersky are up top :)
