I am running Visat Home Premium 64bit SP1 on my new dell laptop [came already installed]. Everytime I try to update [I have it download and I install the updates] when the system re-boots it goes to the blue screen with the error 'IQRL_NOT_EQUAL' and does a dump and then when I restart after that I have to do a system restore to a point before the update for the system to boot properly. The automatic system repair works 10% of the time otherwise I have to F8 and system restoe. I am only doing the required updates - not the recommended. I have tried 1-2 at a time in lieu of the 15 now on my list. Same problem. HELP!!

Most often these sort of things are caused by outdated drivers.
Visit the Dell website here: http://support.dell..../...;l=en&s=gen

Enter your service tag number and select the proper OS.

Check the dates of the drivers there. Download and install anything that's dated after February of 2008.
Then try the updates again.

If it still Blue Screens on you, please provide us with the details of the BSOD event. More info on locating this stuff is in this post: http://www.bleepingc...tml#entry409491

I updated the bios and I thought it was working. I was able to run 2 of the updates but then the problem showed up again - it is possible that the 2 updates were not part of the problem.

the bsod reads:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

0X0A
0X880
0X01
0XFFFFF80001C45D19

Let's try an analysis of the memory dump files. Follow the instructions at this link: http://usasma.vox.co...ed-02oct08.html Don't be dismayed by the amount of stuff there, just follow the steps one by one and it'll work just fine. Post back here with the results and we'll see what it says.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000880, memory referenced
Arg2: 000000000000000c, IRQL
Arg3: 0000000000000001, bitfield :
bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: fffff80001c77d19, address which referenced memory

Do you have a Creative camera installed on the system?
I'd suggest going to Start...Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program.
In the list there, right click on the Creative Camera software and select "Uninstall"

Once you're sure that the problem has been solved, then you can download a new copy of the software from the manufacturer's website and install it on your system according to the instructions.

That did it!!!!! I have sucessfully downloaded and updated the 20 windows updates that were in the update queue. I disabled the camera in Device Manager and uninstalled the software as I do not plan to use the camera at this stage of usage of the laptop. I also took it out of the windows startup program list.

THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!!!!!!!!!

I have the EXACT same condition reported above. Called Dell and they claim they can't help b/c I bought the Dell Studio 1537 at Best Buy :)

Anyhow, great instructions above...I tried to follow the links and the BSOD diagnosis but when I try to open the .dmp file, Windbg popup says "Access is Denied" and something about contact file owner or administrator! So I can't follow the rest of the diagnostic steps.

Sorry, new at Vista and need help b/c any update results in 20 min of BSOD restarts before spontaneously going to Step 3 of 3 update screen.

Any help is appreciated greatly!

Scratch that...fixed the Access is Denied issue (disabled User Access Control to fix).
Got the report...same OA001Vid issue as above. Report looks the exact same.


Couldn't find a creative camera installed at first, but used the Dell link above to find a critical update from Mar 08 for the Dell Webcam! Installed the driver and all is well. Updates install fine with no BSOD. Would have never guessed an issue with the webcam driver (never use webcam).

Will have to bookmark this thread...great info/advice.

THANK YOU!!!
