  1. DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL adf.sys

    Hi all,

    Hopefully, someone can help me out with this problem.
    My system is randomly(once in a while) getting this error:

    DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL

    I didn't write down the exact error message, but it seem to be a problem
    with adf.sys file

    Here is my spec:
    Dell Precision 650
    Dual Xeon 3.06G
    Ram 2G
    HD SCSI 36G
    Network Intel Pro/1000 MTW
    SoundMax Integrated Digital Audio


    Hope someone can help me. Thanks in advance.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    From only one minidump it is difficult to be 100% sure. Zip 5, or 6 minidumps together and post them here.

    Your minidump crashes at Vax347b.sys. This is a driver for Alcohol 120%.

    Try uninstalling, and reinstalling the programme. Check for any updates, or patches etc.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    First of all, let me thank you for such a fast response. I wish I found out about this site earlier. I will post the minidump file again when it crash. Also I will try to reinstall the program as you suggest.

    Again, thank you so much.

    I forgot to mention, that if after uninstalling/reinstalling etc, there is no improvement. Uninstall the programme permanantly.

    Regards Howard :)

    i have a similar problem

    Hello,

    The last 3 entryes in "ntbtlog" are:

    Loaded driver \SystemRoot\System32\Drivers\Fastfat.SYS
    Did not load driver AFD.SYS
    Did not load driver AFD.SYS

    the message in the BSOD is "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"
    then, STOP 0x00..00A (0x000..000, 0x0..002, 0x0..001, xxx)
    where ".." reprez the zero-es (don't remember how many) and "xxx" an hexadecimal address ..

    i can only boot in "SafeMode" nothing else works ..
    in "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\AFD\Parameters" there are no entries (keys, values) - as i read on a formul (german, translated with google) it was suposed to caontain Name, EnableDynamicBacklog, etc (they were not verry specific)

    i will attach some minidump files i found on my cpu (except one in system32\dllcache), hopefully you will be able to give me some pointers

    Thanks!
