DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and Various other errors :(

  1. Hi,

    For the past 3-4 weeks I've continually been experiencing random BSOD's whilst on my PC - the only time I don't have the problem is when I'm playing a game, for example I can play WOW for 6+ hours without any errors. I've formatted the hard drive, installed a new copy of XP - my 1001 event log shows the following:

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000d1 (0x00000404, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xf765e573). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP.

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x00000050 (0x9666d1e0, 0x00000001, 0xf7c37a5f, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP.

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000d1 (0x89d5c620, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xf7b16e21). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP.

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0x8058c5b1, 0xf7c85b30, 0x00000000). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP.

    Various errors I get....

    avg7rsxp.sys BSOD
    ndis.sys BSOD
    USBUHCI.sys BSOD
    USBPORT.sys BSOD

    and a few other random faults.

    My heart tells me my mobo is failing but I thought I'd post here to check before spending money on a new one.

    Thanks in advance :)

    I'm being dumb here but when I double click on pstat it quickly cycles through my system but how do I get the results?

    Click the download button. Install pstat and run pstat at command mode.

    ie pstat > pstat.txt. Attach pstat.txt here

    I tried that, when I double click on the .exe file it opens a window and cycles through quickly - how can I do it in the command mode?

    As you don't know how to use command prompt and I give up.

    Zip 2 to 3 minidumps a zip file and attach it here and you can find the minidump at \windows\minidump. Techspot has a upper limit of 100K per attachment. Don't ask me how to use winzip and how to attach a file at this website as I assume that you know how to do it. I will study the dump and find out the culprit.

    Hi zippot,

    I received a lot of 0xd1, and 0x8e erros and also the occasional 0x50. Some BSOD also reffered to ndis.sys, usbport.sys and usbuhci.sys like some of yours have. I posted on here and cpc offered help. He analysed my dump files and suggested it may be my motherboard. I've changed my motherboard and all the problems i have are gone (except the odd issue with the new m/b).

    I'm not saying it is necessarily your motherboard at fault. I'm saying that I experienced similar to what you are experiencing and it seems my motherboard was at fault.

    Andy

    Cheers mate, I've attached the latest 3.

    Thanks Andy, I reckon it's the motherboard as well but just want to make sure before buying a new one.

    :)

    Hi Zippot.

    Probably it is faulty ram. Zip 7 to 10 minidumps here so I can confirm ram is the culprit.

    Hi CPC, if you've got time can you have a quick look at the dumps please? If it is memory or motherboard I can go out tomorrow and buy a replacement.

    I should add that I've tried each stick of 512MB in by themselves and each stick in each bank and the problem persists - therefore if the memory is faulty then both have failed at the same time.

    HI Zippot,

    Either it is overheat or faulty ram. What is the temperature od your CPU?

    Hi,

    The CPU temp is sitting at 40.5 degrees at the minute.
