DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - Can you help?

  1. I have been having the same problem. I have unistalled my printer and changed my virtual memory to be system managed. While I had my printer uninstalled, I didn't have any errors. After an hour and a half I reinstalled the printer and printed twice, then I got an error. So, I think it is a printer driver problem, but I'm just not sure. My printer is an HP laserjet 1200se. My computer is a DELL Dimension DIM3000 Intel Celeron, 2.4Ghz, 256 MB of RAM 40G hard drive. I have also gotten error messages regarding my Linksys Wireless-G PCI adapter. There are six minidumps for you to look at.
    Thanks for your time!!

    Hi,

    I need more minidumps to find out the culprits. Attach 6 to 8 minidumps here.

    Minidumps are created by Windows anytime you have a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). These files are stored in your Minidump Folder which is found in your Windows Folder in your C Drive. These files contain information pointing to the proabable cause of your crash.

    I've also got this message also, in my case I'll used the newest nForce driver, but now I've got other BSOD.

    I've debugged one of your .dmp:
