  1. Hey guys,

    Every once in a while my computer will just randomly crash out of nowhere, and just restarts itself, does anybody know how to fix this, my minidumps are at this following link:

    The problem that is being displayed on the blue screen is this:

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    The tech info:

    0x0000000D1 (0xFDDB12A4, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF15D9D73)

    tcpip.sys - ADRESS - F15D9D73

    Please zip up your minidumps and attach them to this thread so we can analyze them. Thanks

    If you get a few more minidumps ZIP them up and attach them to this thread. It is difficult to determine the cause with only 1 minidump. That one points to a problem with ntoskrnl.exe which could be many things, including faulty memory.
    Suggestion
    1. Check the temperature of the CPU and make sure that it is not overheat (ie temperature < 60C)
    Make sure that the CPU fan works properly
    2. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot. Reseat video card as well.
    3. Downclock the ram. Check to default setting if you video card is overclocked.
    4. Clean the dust inside the computer case
    5. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard
    6. Check the bios setting about memory timing and make sure that it is on
    For example : DIMM1 and DIMM2 do not have the same timing.
    DIMM1: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz) (2.0-3-3-7 @ 166 MHz)
    DIMM2: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
    DIMM3: Corsair CMX512-3200C2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (3.0-3-3-8 @ 200 MHz)
    7. Make sure that your PSU have adequate power to drive all the hardware including USB devices
    8. Run chkdsk /r at command prompt
    9. Upgrade BIOS and make sure that the motherboard has no leaking capacitor

    If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
    Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.

    Go into Control Panel, System, Advanced, Startup and Recovery, Settings, and uncheck "Automatically Restart"... This may allow you to debug the problem easier
