  1. Hey, I'm new here and I need help on this BSOD that keeps randomly appearing when I boot up my computer. It keeps saying irql_not _less _or_equal. I've uninstalled and reinstalled most of my programs, updated the computer, and checked for malware, but it still keeps showing every few days.

    Can somebody help?

    Your error codes are the all the same 0x0000001E: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
    The Windows kernel detected an illegal or unknown processor instruction. A Stop 0x1E condition can be caused by invalid memory and access violations similar to those that generate Stop 0xA errors.

    0xA errors are caused either by hardware or faulty drivers attempting to address higher IRQ levels that they are not permitted to do resulting in system crashes.


    Unfortunately nothing specific was cited. Do the following...

    Start > Run > EventVwr.msc > Okay Note any yellow triangles or red x's and what they flag.

    Also, you mat want to run memtest on your RAM.
