    Random DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL


    PC was running while asleep. On Chrome homepage. Woke up the above BSOD (without culprit file listed).
    Please find attached the debugging files.

    In the meantime, I have DDU my graphics driver and done a clean install.

    I have been experiencing random sound & video stuttering since the Windows Creators update, but it never results in a BSOD and is a widely reported issue with Windows & the GTX 1080ti card.

    Are you overclocking your GPU, because in the dumpfile this procesname is named MSIafterburner.

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)
    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 kernel debugger is available get stack backtrace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: 0000000000000000, memory referenced
    Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
    Arg3: 0000000000000008, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    Arg4: 0000000000000000, address which referenced memory

    Hello, no I am not overclocking the GPU. Just checked Afterburner again, reset it (was not OC'd). I could uninstall it. I use it simply to check temps.

    Its best to update direct from Manufacture and not using any programs to assist.

    I always remove all nvidia programs and reinstall from Nvidia direct :)

    DDU is our normal method of removing all parts of your graphics driver. Using it is a good thing.

    Yep. After removing all traces of the previous driver, I obviously have the current driver from Nvidia to install after.

    I am curious about what lifetec mentioned about MSIAfterburner from the debugging files. Could it be that it has kept an OC profile from a previous graphics card? Anyhow, I have reinstalled it and set it to defaults.

    1) Check the BIOS for an upgrade:
    BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. F7f, 18/01/2016 SMBIOS Version 2.8
    to F22f 2017/12/01
    GA-Z170X-Gaming G1 (rev. 1.0) | Motherboard - GIGABYTE U.S.A.


    2) Open control panel > large or small icons > troubleshooting > on the left pane click view all > run these troubleshooters:
    a) hardware and devices
    b) playing audio
    c) video playback
    Post into the thread any troubleshooters where there were fixes or items unable to be fixed.

    Hello, I flashed the bios, and now I keep getting WHEA errors on my 4.5GHz OC. In fact, I can't even get 4.GHz anymore, constant Bsods. Can I revert back to the older bios?
