    BSOD irql_not_less_or_equal, Compuer No Longer Turns On...

    Hello, so last night I was having some major BSOD issues.

    At first, my computer reset itself and alerted me of a "DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION" error message. I let it do it's thing, and when it turned back on, it remained on a blank black screen. This went on for about an hour, and I assumed something must have gone wrong with the restart so I manually turned off my computer.

    This kept continuing, it would get past the splash screen that displayed the manufacturer and the various F button commands. I eventually managed to get the Windows 10 logo to pop up, and it was booting up my computer. Before I could reach the login screen, I was met with a new BSOD, the "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" screen. My computer once again restarted, and the exact same process happened again. I must have gotten this new BSOD about two more times after that, and then I was finally met with a "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED".

    After this, my computer remained on a blank black screen again, and since it was around one in the morning, I decided to just turn it off and go to bed.

    Today, however, I am unable to even turn my computer on. Is it possible that a piece of hardware died?

    I know the rules for posting BSOD related threads require posting a log of our computer, but I can't even get into my computer at all to do so. Even last night when my computer was functioning, I kept getting BSOD's before the login screen would appear. Sorry about that! Hopefully somebody can give me an idea as to what I can do even without this log.

    DV805 welcome to the Forums. Can you boot into Safe Mode and run the DM Log collector? You could also try to restore your computer to a previous time before this started happening.

    Have you made any hardware or Software changes before this started happening? Could you also fill out your system specs in more detail?

    Please go to your last post and in the bottom left corner click 'My System Specs'. there is a link there to update your system specs, click it and fill them all out in as much detail as possible. Please list Manufacturer and Model, and list Desktop or Laptop. If it is an OEM, please list the Manufacturer and Model number. Please be sure to list your PSU and CPU cooler. If you would like to know what we would like, please click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post and see mine.
