I get the dreaded blue screen randomly when connected to my dsl line. I have unplugged the line and the computer stays up for days. When I get the blue screen the following is the message:

Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

Technical info:

Stop: 0x000000D1 (0x774E6358,0x00000002,0x00000000,0xEF6095A6)

Tcpip.sys – address EF6095A6 base at EF5FA000, date stamp 4294cc20




Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Based on your description and error message, it would seem XP does NOT like either your modem setup or your NIC drivers..

Are both up to date??

Control Panel>System>Device Manager.. That will tell you what your NIC is.. From there, go to the manufacturers website and get the newest driver for that card and your operating system..

I downloaded and installed the new drivers. Thought I was fixed but went to blue screen after about two hours, then again in fifteen minutes.

Try using the Driver Verifier for XP..

You could also try This Driver from Intel rather than the manufacturers driver..

First thanks for the help!

I ran the verifier. I got a large list of drivers. It then said to hit finish and it would verify and restart. Upon restarting windows went straight to the blue screen with a message concerning bad drivers. I went to the safe mode and did a system restore to get back Here. I have not tried the new driver you suggested....next on my list.
What am i supposed to do with the list of drivers that verifiy spit out? Or does windows do everything?

Thanks again

Okay, I have done this twice: ran verifier, sytem reboots to finish and goes directly to blue screen before start menu. Now message reads The system is attempting to access memory beyond the end of the allocation.

Each time I have to restart in safe mode and restore to an earlier point.


Thanks again for the help.

Did you try the other driver I gave you from Intek??

Do you have a different NIC you can try??

I tried the new driver....same result.

I have a 3com etherlink xl 10/100 pci tx card. I'll try it.

I'll look for current drivers as well.

Don't forget to boot into BIOS and disable the on-board NIC..

Disabled on board NIC, downloaded and installed drivers for 3com board.

Got blue screen again with following info:

Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

Stop: 0x000000D1 (0x87369000, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0xBAE14BFA)

Fwcore.sys – address BAE14BFA base at BAE0D000, Datestamp 42e04fa1


I also tried to run verifier again, but just like last time it would not reboot to windows...see same message above. so I restored to get back here.

Thanks again for the help.
