IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Blue Screen !!

By tmlfan_99 ·
Hey guys, after about 30 mins of running COD4 or COD5 I get a blue screen with the following error:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
Stop: 0x0000000A (0x00000000, 0x000000FF, 0x00000000, 0x806E4EA0)

I am running an AMD 6400+, 4 GB RAM, ATI 3870, Windows XP Home.

Memory hole, or Bad driver(probably Video)

by michaelaknight In reply to Info

Without reading the previous post, I'm going to say it's a corrupt or incompatible video driver especially given the application running. Could just as easy be a soundcard driver if you're using a beefy card.
layman wise the error is saying that a piece of memory was trying to be read and couldn't due to any number of reasons but in this case I'd bet on a device driver.

make sure you have the most up to date drivers for those devices and if thay are the most up to date maybe roll em back to a more stable version.

"This error usually occurs after the installation of a buggy device driver, system service, or BIOS." This includes antivirus. I would roll back drivers of device, system or BIOS you updated, if any.

No updates were made as this problem just started yesterday. I updated my video card drivers today in hopes that would solve it but it never did

Do you have any programs set to auto update?

by wanttocancel In reply to No Updates Were made

A program, such as antivirus, could've updated without your knowledge. Probably not but it's worth a look.

I would do a thorough search through Event Viewer and see if you can pinpoint whatever is causing the BSOD.

First thing to do is Update all of your Motherboard Device Drivers and see how it performs. < edit as I missed a bit >
<br><br>
My Computer, Properties, Advanced, Startup and Recovery and untick Automatically restart. While you are there make sure that Small memory dump (64 KB) is selected and the output is %SystemRoot%\Minidump. The Blue Screen will dump the Minidump file.
<br><br>
Minidump Files can be found here. C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini******-**.dmp
<br><br>
How to read the small memory dump files that Windows creates for debugging
<br>
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315263
<br><br>
To download and install the Windows debugging tools, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
<br>
http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/default.mspx
<br><br>
Instructions on using Windbg.
<br>
Open Windbg and select file, Symbol file path and brows to the Symbol folder that you have downloaded and installed Symbols to, select OK.
<br>
Close the workpage and save the Workspace information. This should lock in the Symbol path.
<br>
Open Windbg and select file and select Open Crash Dump then navigate to the minidump, highlight it and select Open.
<br>
There are two ways to use !analyze -v the easiest is to click on !analyze -v under Bugcheck Analysis.
<br>
When you have ran the initial dump if you look to the bottom of the screen you will see kd> to the right of that type in !analyze -v and press the Enter key.
<br>
Ctrl + a will let you copy the information and paste it into notepad.
<br>
Look to the bottom of the page for information like this. This was fixed by updating the Graphics Drivers.

Doesn't Work

by tmlfan_99 In reply to windbg

For some reason, it does not make a minidump file.
