    BSOD DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL(ndis.sys) after upgrading to Win10

    Hi there,

    I have really annoying BSOD problem. I used to run Windows 8.1 on my laptop and I believe it never crashed. After upgrading to Windows 10 I have had lot of crashes. Sometimes it just shuts down or reboots and sometimes I encounter BSOD. Quite typically error is the one in title of this thread. When laptop reboots after that it typically fails to start and reboots on and on again. I found that if I remove the battery for a while I'm able to start my computer. It may run flawlessly a day but then crash many times in a row. I've installed now Windows 10 4 or 5 times again but error just keeps coming. I'm not able to tell when it's starting after re-installation as it may be gone for days but then start even though I haven't done any changes to my system meanwhile or installed any new software.

    This issue drives me crazy so I'll appreciate any kind of help. I suspect that it's some device driver but which one.

    Hi tsalonen78,

    Unfortunately, the msinfo32.nfo file is corrupted.
    Please search msinfo32 and open it.
    If it opens succesful, save it, copy it to a zip and upload it. This file is quite important.

    There are no event logs of any dump, but there are 2 dumps dating from a week ago.
    Please check {windows partition}\windows\minidump and check if there are any recent dump files saved.
    Please make sure your pc is configured for small dump files How to configure minidump | Windows 10 tutorial

    Please test your memory for a 0x4E(PFN_LIST_CORRUPT)

    MemTest86+ needs to be run for at least 8 passes for conclusive results. Set it running before you go to bed and leave it overnight. We're looking for zero errors here. Even a single error will indicate RAM failure.
