I've been getting several random blue screen errors on my computer saying "DRIVER IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL" for some reason, and according to WhoCrashed, they seem to be coming from the tcpip.sys module and that it "could be caused by another driver that cannot be identified at this time"... or something along those lines. I've attempted to look into this but I have absolutely no idea how to fix this error.
Is there any solution to this? My computer is a Gateway Notebook PC with the model number Q5WTC. Thank you.

:welcome:     Leopardstar,


Possibly a driver conflict with either a network device (wi-fi or lan) or a third party AV (anti virus) if you have one installed.


Does this happen all of the time or only when you are on the internet or gaming etc.


Have you checked the Device Manager for any yellow ! or red Xs.


Can you tell us what AV protection you are using.
