    Windows 10 IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ERROR


    So, i i first encountered this 15 days ago...my pc wont sleep, restart, or shutdown normally with out giving me a blue screen errror and then shutting down (reardless of whether i try safe boot, sleep, restart, or shut down..it will always give me a blue screen error, and then a shutdown).. i ran some scans (sfc, chkdsk) and both turned up nothing, i ran virus scans which have comed up empty handed as well... I Don't know what it might be at this point and decided to leave it beacuse i had other endeavors. Came back to it and its still the same... Thing is though, the pc runs really well when its on.. as well as it ever has and the problem arises only when it falls asleep, i try giving it a restart, or a shutdown... Its really annoying because although it runs fine when active, i have to wait 5 minutes for it to boot up everytime after i leave idle for a half hour...

  2. Windows 10 64bit, IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal error

    Hi Connor,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being part of Windows 10.

    I would like to inform that IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal error indicates that Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory at DISPATCH_LEVEL or above.

    Do let us know the following to assist you better with this issue:

    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Have you made any changes to your system prior to this issue?
    • Are you able to boot the device to desktop?
    • Does this issue persists only while playing games?

    This Stop error message usually occurs during installation when there was an attempt in kernel mode to touch pageable memory at too high a process internal request level (IRQL). Typically,
    this error occurs when a driver uses an incorrect memory address. Other possible causes of this error include an incompatible device driver, a general hardware problem, or incompatible software.

    If you are able to boot the device to desktop, try the below troubleshooting steps

    Step 1: As an initial step,
    , I suggest you to download and install any pending updates on the computer through Windows update and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Steps:

    • Connect to the internet.
    • Press Windows key and type updates.
    • Click on Check for updates.
    • Under Windows Updates, click on Check for updates.
    • Try to install the updates being shown.

    Step 2: I suggest you to refer to the Microsoft article, try the troubleshooting steps mentioned and check if it helps.

    Troubleshoot blue screen errors

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of this issue and required information for further assistance.

  3. Irql_not_less_or_equal

    So I have this clients PC that blue screens and gives a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP 0x0000000A error message. Error Goblin (link in sig) says the following:

    And I have NO IDEA what the hell that means. It has wrapped around my head 5 times and caused it to explode. Ive ran memtest for 7 and a half hours and it didnt find any errors. I will probably run it again overnight just to be safe. Ive also cleaned out the computer with an air compressor and checked the hard drive for bad sectors are none are to be found.

    Im trying like hell to avoid reinstalling Windows but it seems unlikely.

    Im going to try updating some drivers and see what happens. Some of the drivers on this computer date back to 2007.

    Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks guys.

    EDIT:

    Alright so it doesnt look like ill be able to get onto the internet to do anything because nearly every time i try, i get the BSOD. Format seems imminent.

    Windows 10 IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL ERROR

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
