  1. Can someone please help with this. My laptop (gateway m275) shuts down all of a sudden showing blue screen

    I have attached the minidump files so you can see what the error is

    Try to reset the minidump so it is reported as a text file instead of a lot of .dmp files... you will get more ideas from a lot more users.

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)
    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 kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 0003fa18, memory referenced
    Arg2: 0000003f, IRQL
    Arg3: 00000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    Arg4: ba3bada3, address which referenced memory

    I read your minidumps and they cited OS drivers as the problem and they are too general to be of much help.

    However, the 0xD1 error specifically cited the driver w22n51.sys as the probable cause. This belongs to your Intel PRO/wireless driver LAN adapter software.

    Go to your laptop manufacturer's website, find your particular model, and update said drivers.

    Newcomer to the forum. Has anyone heard of replacing the heatsink w/ball bearing fan when confronted with this message? (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL) Check the CPU temperature through the BIOS and most probably will be running way to hot. What does anyone think?
