I had this problem a few months ago, couldn't find a solution then and after a couple of weeks it seemed to go away. Now it's come back!! What happens is this, every morning I boot up the computer, it either freezes or I get a BSoD or both. This is what happened this morning.....
1. Booted to desktop, OK until first click of mouse...froze.
2. Re-boot....nothing happens
3. Re-boot...starts the sequence then get BSoD (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL)
4. Repeat of 3.
5. Booted to desktop now seems to be working OK.
I have had this, or a version of it for about 5 days now, had 3 different BSoD messages. The other two were, Memory Management and Ox024 Ntfs.sys.
If anyone has had a similar problem or knows what I can do I would appreciate it. I am on Vista 32bit and I have run chkdsk and tried startup repair off the installation disk, both came up OK. I have also run virsu, malware and spyware scans and found nothing. Any help appreciated.
If the memory "trick" doesn't work you may have a HDD problem. Check Event Viewer for error messages from SCSI and FASTFAT (System Log) or Autochk (Application Log) that might help pinpoint the device or driver that is causing the error. Try disabling any virus scanners, backup programs, or disk defragmenter tools that continually monitor the system. From the Command Prompt run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and resolve any file system corruption.
