  1. Hi, I randomly get BSOD's about IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    I checked my IRQ's and I noticed a couple things...

    High Definition Audio Controller is on the same IRQ as my Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS.

    I also noticed another High Definition Audio Controller on the same IRQ as Nvidia Nforce Serial ATA Controller

    Are these bad things to be sharing?

    My specs:

    EVGA Nforce 680i SLi LT Mobo
    4x 1gb Adata DDR2-800mhz
    EVGA Geforce 8800 GTS SSC edition
    Intel Core 2 Quad q6600
    Soundblaster X-fi PCI Expressx1
    500gb Seagate barracude 7200rpm HDD (SATA)
    52x LG Dvd rw/cdrw lightscribe drive (SATA)

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    What operating system are you running? Are you running in SLI mode now? Do you notice what you are doing when the BSOD's happen?

    I'm running Vista home premium 64bit.

    I'm not running SLi mode.

    The BSOD's are random.. From me coming home and there being a BSOD, to playing a game and BSOD in the middle of the game.

    They aren't extremely often, but they happen enough for me to always be on edge for when another one is going to occur.

    Pull out 2 1gb Adata sticks and run the system for a day or two and see if the random BSOD's continue. Make sure you put or leave the remaining 2 memory sticks in dual-channel mode if you have been running in dual-channel mode
