Driver_IRQL_not_less_Or_Equal error - Need a minidump eval.

  1. I love computers, they either run great or take a turn and throw me problem after problem. I've evaluated my hardware and my hard drive coming to a conclusion that if this problem remains unsolved I guess I just have to buy new ram. Anyways, my current specs are
    AMD 3500+
    GeForce 7950GT pci-e
    SoundBlaster X-FI xtremeaudio
    2gb (1gbx2) OCZ Titanium
    160gb WD hd
    550w power supp

    If possible, I would like someone to take a look at these zipped up minidump files. There are a set of 3 different dates i could find the recordings for and im hoping that its just simply a device driver error opposed to my actual hardware. Thanks

    All three dumps point to one thing: NVTcp.sys which is a file/driver for Nvidia's firewall. This is a very common problem with Nvidia's nForce4 firewall. It can also be related to their NIC card.

    Just Google NVTcp.sys and you will find a great deal on the net concerning this hair pulling issue. A lot of people had problems with this. When I built my new system in May 2006 I kept getting advice from many sources NOT to install the Nvidia firewall.
