    "IRQL not less or equal" BSOD after installing new bios and gpu driver


    I've been struggling with sporadic game crash issues for half a year.
    Not sure if it's hardware related.

    I posted here a few weeks back and got some help, but it didn't seem to fix the issue outright/thoroughly.

    So installed windows 10 clean, and they went away for a long time (2 weeks, which I think is a record).
    Another one just occurred though, so that's why I'm back. Hopefully someone can some insight.
    (Note: I ran memtest86: for 7 hours without error, gpu and cpu temps are good
    (not sure about the time at crash, but every time I check them, during stress tests even, they are normal).

    I had been running the latest crimson driver 16.5.3, and had bios 1206 before it crashed. Thought one may have been the cause so updated both of them...so now I've got crimson 16.6.1 and 1805 bios (fixes stability).
    This time, within a few minutes after exiting out of the game, with steam still running in the background, I got the IRQL BSOD while navigating file explorer.

    I've no idea where to look to find exactly what driver is needed for each piece of hardware. I've spent literally hours scouring the forums, but most all the semi-related hits are dated and/or have different hardware.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

  2. Never ending cycle of multiple BSOD,hang ups, freezes,

    Thanks for your help! Ia appreciate it!

    I backed up the hdd.

    Right now I am trying to get the clean install of Windows 10 put on the hdd but I keep getting the following BSOD messages:

    Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal (storahci.sys)

    Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal (storport.sys)

    IRQL Not Less or Equal

    Unexpected Kernel Mode Trap

    Kernel Security Check Failure

    Page Fault in Nonpaged Area

    After a BSOD the computer restarts.

    Any suggestions?

  3. Never ending cycle of multiple BSOD,hang ups, freezes,

    This seems pretty helpful because the drivers do seem to be causing a problem. I did method #01, but I can't update the drivers because I cannot get into windows to be able to do the update. Is there a way to do the driver update from the F2 (setup) window?


    Also, I tried to do a clean install on the hard drive by downloading Windows 10 from the Microsoft website oer a tech name Zachery V. I loaded it onto a USB Stick and now there are these BSOD messages that I constantly get:

    Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal (storahci.sys)

    Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal (storport.sys)

    IRQL Not Less or Equal

    Unexpected Kernel Mode Trap

    Kernel Security Check Failure

    Page Fault in Nonpaged Area

    After each BSOD it restarts, booting from the USB stick, and then another BSOD appears.

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi HansW,

    Could you provide me a link to the specs of your memory? I cannot find a proper site and I would like to check a few things.
    Currently it looks like the memory is overclocked

    Hello, axe0

    Sorry to bother you again. Thank you very much for your help!
    "Could you provide me a link to the specs of your memory?"
    I believe this is the memory I have. (I referred to the label on their case "PC4-19200, Patriot Signature Line".) But unfortunately, it doesn't show the default timings...

    I will check logitech for driver updates now.

    I will also use DDU to uninstall AMD drivers.
    (Up until now I've been doing this everytime http://www.tomshardware.com/faq/id-2...u-drivers.html.)

    After that I will use that tutorial you referred to.
    (I always install everything but raptor and HDMI audio, but I won't this time. While referring to that tutorial I'll only install the bare minimum.)

    I installed the driver for the C615 logitech webcam. (I never had it installed before.)

    Used DDU to uninstall the amd driver in safe mode (had auto updates disabled beforehand).
    I mistakenly installed some logitech gaming software for the mouse (went on a logitech driver update rampage). For some reason my mouse wouldn't work launching into safe mode.

    Tried uninstalling that logitech gaming software (only software I could find for the mouse), but my mouse still wouldn't work in safemode, so I just used keyboard to navigate DDU.

    Successfully uninstalled AMD drivers, and installed the GPU "drivers" only (I will use this cool, minimal install method (via unpacking the installer) from here on out).

    I will check this thread once a day for a week (in case there's something I need to do about the memory). If no problems occur at all by next Saturday I will close it as solved.

    Thank you very much for your time, axe0!
    ..

    (I've never messed with any of the memory settings in the bios, ever. I don't even have the option to set XMP. Asus Bios just auto ups the speed.)

    No problem, I would just like to know what it is set to *Smile

    Please do not edit posts after a few hours, chances are that they won't be seen because nobody will be notified with changes but only with new replies.

    Sorry I'm not sure exactly what to check. Could you tell me the exact types of memory settings I should check?

    "Please do not edit posts after a few hours, chances are that they won't be seen because nobody will be notified with changes but only with new replies."
    Got it. I'll stop doing that.*chuckle

    Sorry forgot to add that, the frequency & voltage & the timings of the memory.

    No problem at all! Thanks!

    Here is everything mem-related I could find. (The timings list is really long, but almost every single thing is set to auto. I can write it all down, but it'll take maybe half an hour to do that and post back.)

    Here is all the other info I could find regarding RAM settings...

    Frequency: 2400MHz
    Voltage: 1.208
    Capacity: 16348
    System Agent(SA) Configuration/Memory Configuration > Memory Remap: Enabled

    Target DRAM Frequency: 2400MHz
    BCLK Frequency DRAM Frequency Radio: Auto
    DRAM Odd Ration Mode: Enabled
    DRAM Frequency: Auto

    lol
    My phone is terrible. It'd be completely illegible. I guess I could've done a screenshot somehow.

    Do you need the Third Timings and RTL IOL Control and all that? If so, I'll look into to getting that info via screenshot.
    A photo just won't suffice.

    Ah cool. Thanks so much for your time, axe0.

    Btw, I've had no problems yet having uninstalled/installed gpu driver packages and installed the logitech drivers!
    If you change your mind, I got those screenshots ready! hehe

    Apologies for the sheity formatting on the hand-typed settings.
