    driver_irql_not_less_or_equal BSOD randomly

    I randomly (and commonly) get BSoDs with a bug check string of IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (Code: 0x0000000a) or DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (Code: 0x000000d1).

    I can't seem to find the driver that is causing these random blue screens, there doesn't seem to be a reason either as it can range from minutes to hours on getting the blue screen.

    Primary specs:
    CPU: i7 6700K
    Motherboard: Asus Z170 Pro Gaming
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 980ti
    RAM: Corsair 16GB DDR4 @3000MHz
    OS: Windows 10

    I have recently wiped and reinstalled Windows, just incase that was the problem, but it is still happening. I've also ran MemTest for over an hour with 0 fails.

    Please run CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID, open it and make screenshots of the following tabs

    • CPU
    • Mainboard
    • Memory
    • SPD*
    • Graphics

    *SPD shows the details of each module, you can show the details by choosing different slots in the left upper corner.
    Please make screenshots of each module.

    Please post each screenshot in your next reply/replies.

    Diagnostic Test


    warning   Warning
    Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
    Please create a restore point.

    Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

    Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

    Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

    If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.

    Note   Note
    Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

    Hey thanks for the reply.

    Since my first post, I've updated to BIOS 1105, which has not stopped IRQL crashes.

    CPU-Z pictures

    I can use your attachments if you'd prefer it, but I can only upload 4 more files there, and I have 5 pictures. I've put all 5 pictures from CPU-Z on OneDrive for you to download instead.

    I didn't take a picture of slot 1 and 3 as there's nothing there, due to I'm only using slot 2 and 4 on my motherboard.

    If you haven't yet enabled driver verifier, I suggested it because some components use drivers that are often causing trouble even after a reinstallation.
