    BSOD irql not less or equal after upgrading cpu. hardware or software?


    Upgraded CPU and started getting IRQL Not Less or Equal BSOD. Everything was working fine before the upgrade.
    Might be a hardware issue, but just want to get confirmation.

    Upgraded from Intel E6500 to Intel Q9400 on a Asus P5Q Pro Turbo MB.
    Videocard Geforce 8800GT
    4 GB of DDR2 RAM
    Do not know what other information is needed, but any help would be welcomed.

    upgraded bios but to no

    Hello Blackcalvus and welcome to the Forums. I looked at your dump files and found

    Code:
    Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.
    BugCheck 1000007E, {ffffffffc000001d, fffff80171ff857e, ffffd001a8d785d8, ffffd001a8d77df0}
    Probably caused by : hardware ( dxgmms1!VidSchiSendToExecutionQueue+59e )
    Followup:     MachineOwner
    That is not always Hardware. It can be hardware failing or can be a driver causing the hardware to act like it is failing.

    Code:
    STACK_TEXT:  
    ffffd001`a8d78810 fffff801`7201e40e : ffffe000`9545b5e0 ffffe000`9545b5e0 ffffe000`90de5a60 ffffe000`90de6000 : dxgmms1!VidSchiSendToExecutionQueue+0x59e
    ffffd001`a8d78920 fffff801`72037f12 : ffffe000`9545b5e0 ffffe000`90de6000 ffffe000`00000000 ffffe000`00000005 : dxgmms1!VidSchiSubmitRenderCommand+0x5ee
    ffffd001`a8d78c70 fffff801`72037e5d : ffffe000`90de6000 00000000`00000080 ffffe000`903c3840 ffffe000`903c3800 : dxgmms1!VidSchiRun_PriorityTable+0xb2
    ffffd001`a8d78cc0 fffff800`bf5746d8 : 00000000`00000000 00000000`00000000 00000000`00000000 00000000`00000000 : dxgmms1!VidSchiWorkerThread+0x8d
    ffffd001`a8d78d00 fffff800`bf5e0d06 : ffffd001`a3fce180 ffffe000`90de7840 ffffd001`a3fdabc0 00000000`00000000 : nt!PspSystemThreadStartup+0x58
    ffffd001`a8d78d60 00000000`00000000 : ffffd001`a8d79000 ffffd001`a8d73000 00000000`00000000 00000000`00000000 : nt!KiStartSystemThread+0x16
    That shows it appears to be the Video Card or the Graphics drivers.

    Code:
    Use !analyze -v to get detailed debugging information.
    BugCheck D1, {ffffe0012db748a9, 2, 0, fffff8004820de76}
    Probably caused by : hardware ( USBPORT!USBPORT_Core_ProcessScatterGatherList+4b6 )
    Followup:     MachineOwner
    That says it is the USB Ports.

    Code:
    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
    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 a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: ffffe009a9641828, memory referenced
    Arg2: 0000000000000002, IRQL
    Arg3: 0000000000000000, bitfield :
        bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
        bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
    Arg4: fffff802f7c28435, address which referenced memory
    What I would like to do is for you to go to Download Drivers
    and see if you can find a Windows 10 driver for your graphics card. Uninstall your current drivers and the run DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller: How to use - Windows 7 Help Forums) to clean them all out. Be sure and only check the AMD Graphics driver box. Then install the new drivers using the custom install and try to only install the Graphics driver.

    Next please right click on the start icon and select Command prompt administrator, give admin permissions and copy/paste this into the window that opens and press enter sfc /scannow . If you decide to type it in, please notice the space between the sfc and the /. We want it to say no integrity violations were found. If it says there where corrupt files that could not be repaired, please reboot and run it again. You may have to run it 3 times with reboots in between each time.

    Let me know if that makes any difference for you.

    Hello essenbe,
    thanks for your help, i will try to follow your instructions. The only think so far is that the "download drivers", it's pointing me towards AMD drivers and not the nvidia drivers. Should i be going to the nvidia website instead?

    Yes, I'm sorry I put in the wrong link. It should be the Nvidia Web Site http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us and with DDU Uninstaller check the Nvidia Graphics drivers only. Then the Custom install and only check the Graphics driver and PhysX driver and make sure the clean install box is checked. I'm sorry for the confusion. It was my fault. I am glad you asked.
