IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL

Hello,

I have been experiencing the BSOD with the message 'IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL', ever since I installed my ADSL Broadband router. It only seems to happen when I have been on the internet for a while and when I close Internet Explorer. I am sure it must be a bad driver or a memory problem.

Would greatly appreciate any help.



Regards

Hi,

can you name us some technical data of your router, or better:
could you post a link to the manufacturer's website?

Hello,

It is a BT Voyager 220V ADSL Voice Router. I am also getting a message saying 'Attempt to write to read only memory' on a blue screen after loading a file.

I don't think that these problems are caused by the router. This is typical for built-in components.

The router is connected to the pc via USB; could you find out if there are problems with other usb-devices (memory sticks, hard disks, ...).

Run the BIOS setup of your computer and go to "Advanced" (or "Onboard Devices")
Check if all functions for usb are enabled (e. g. legacy support).

Hello,

I am connecting via ethernet and not USB. Although I did connect via USB when I first installed it.

As I already said, IRQ-errors only occur if there are conflicts with built-in devices; as your router is connected via ethernet, ist must be a problem with your ethernetadapter.

You should check update the network drivers (see: start, run, enter "devmgmt.msc") => right click the network adapter and select "update driver", then try to download the new driver from Microsoft Update.

If no driver can be found and you know the name of your network adapter, you can search the manufacturer's website for it.

If it's a driver issue the error would normally read "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL". having said that, would be as well to make sure the USB driver for the router is removed/uninstalled if you're now using a NIC connection.

Apart from that, since there's no reference to 'driver' in the error string, my guess is bad or incompatible RAM.

Hello,

I have updated my network drivers, but I have just got the following message 'PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA' with a long stop message, whilst downloading a large file. I think I have bad ram. I am thinking of getting some new ram. Is this likely to solve the problem.



Regards
