    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    NETIO.SYS

    All the minidumps flag this

    Make sure you have installed all the Windows Updates and go here for instructions on how to test your memory and hard drive for errors:

    Are you over-clocking?

    Yes its always flagging "NETIO.SYS".
    Thanks for your reply, I'll follow your advice. And check my Ram & Harddrive for errors.
    But since i switched my browser yesterday from Opera to Firefox, it seems that the BSOD stops happening...Hmm what seems to be the problem?

    Btw, I'm not overclocking my Graphics Card or CPU.

    NETIO.sys has to do with a network driver...

    This might help:
    "Control Panel >>Network and Sharing Center>>Manage Network Connection; right click on the LACN>>properties and uncheck "QoS Packet Scheduler"
