HI, two weeks ago I purchased and installed some new RAM two 2GB sticks from Crucial and it was fantastic up until a few days ago when I got a blue screen I think while playing Minecraft that had the IRQL not less or equal on the top and tcpip.sys towards the bottom. After searching online, I figured it must be my new RAM overheating, so I grabbed a fan cooler that sits under my laptop from a friend and have been using that since. Then today I got another while just surfing the internet that looked identical to the one a few days ago and then another an hour after that without the IRQL not less or equal, and then another a couple hours after that while playing Minecraft that was the same as the others. I am attaching my minidump files and also a system analyze by gamebooster that has all my specs and stuff if that helps at all. Is there anything else I need to put in here? Thanks!

Hi DrizzitDudden and :yes:

Please Run the PCPitstop.com OverDrive Full Tests

Here's how:

You must use your Internet Explorer for this procedure. (doesn't work so well in Firefox or others). If your machine is running Vista or Windows 7, you must Select IE to “Run as Administrator”. After completing PCPitstop OverDrive you can close your IE browser and re-open it Normally so that you are no longer running as administrator.

Go to: http://www.pcpitstop.com
Click on "Free Computer Check-up" listed below PC Pitstop OverDrive
In the User Login - Click on "Sign up FREE!"
You'll need to submit a valid email address and create your own password, then click - Create Account(button)

Now enter your email address and password to Log in, Select - Scan this system Now!(button)
You will then be asked to download an ActiveX component and allow it to install.
It is safe and does not compromise your privacy.
Follow the on-screen prompts to install the ActiveX and to allow the Full Tests to be run on your machine.

The Full Tests take about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes on most machines.
When complete, a Results - Summary - Recommended Fixes will be displayed.

Please post the URL internet address, from your Results, back here into this Topic Thread so that we can review the configuration and present performance levels of your machine.

Note: During the graphics 2D and graphics 3D testing, your screen will display some rapidly moving objects.
If you are sensitive to visual flashing, it may cause dizziness. Therefore, look away from the screen during that portion of the testing.

After reviewing the results we will be more informed and may be able to provide better recommendations for you to work towards improving your machine's performance.

While PCPitstop does offer a variety of Paid Products, the PCPitstop OverDrive testing is FREE. Please ignore the references to Paid Products. We prefer to provide manual solution instructions that you can apply directly to your machine.

Thanks to rshaffer61 for the above instructions :)

Remove one of the new 2GB sticks and see if the problem goes away. If not, put back and remove the other. If either fixes the problem, contact Crucial for a replacement. Their warranty is vry good.

No worries we all have other obligations and lives to live.
Go back to the PCPitstop report and take care of each item that has a large X at the end of it`s description.
Click on the actual item itself and you will be advised as to how you correct the issue, work your way down the list but updating the Network adapters may resolve the issue, you could do the above with only 1 stick of Ram fitted as suggested by Ztruker and save time.

NB: Where the Network drivers are concerned I would download and save them to the desktop, uninstall all traces of the previous drivers, reboot and then install the new drivers manually, this will prevent an overlap of the drivers which can cause system instability/crashes.
