  3. BSOD - IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Hi,

    I have been experiencing BSODs in the last 4 days.

    The last BSOD showed me "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and I don't know what happened.

    (I forgot what the previous BSODs error, I believe it was not "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL").

    Here is the link for my last 3 minidumps file and MSinfo32.

    Minidump_and_MSinfo32.zip

    Please, I need your help.

    Thanks.

    Bsod:- irql_not_less_or_equal

    Hi Hariy Scot,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    If I had to guess, the bluescreen would be caused by an inproperly closed program.
    But, I cannot find anything in the stack regarding 3rd party programs.
    This does not mean that there aren't any 3rd party programs involved, but we need to be sure with the 3rd party programs.

    clfs.sys is a windows driver as described, this should have been solved with SFC if it indeed was the cause.
    Windows drivers are rarely the real cause, but a lot blamed because they are the last active.
    If it appears that a windows driver is causing problems and clean install, sfc and dism cannot solve it then the only other solution is windows update if the hardware is not defective.

    Seeing the crashes are only IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, the usual causes are

    • Kernel mode driver,
    • System Service,
    • BIOS,
    • Windows,
    • Virus scanner,
    • Backup tool,
    • compatibility
    Everything related to Windows drivers can be ruled out.
