    BSOD - IRQ Not Less than or Equal and Driver Power State Failure


    I continue to have issues with the subject BSODs. I have attempted to follow on line help (e.g., deleting devices that have issues), but continue to get them. I am not sure how to read this mini dump file and am asking for your help.

    Thanks.

    I updated and attached the .zip IAW the BSOD instructions. In addition to the subject BSODs, I also had critical process died and inaccessible boot device errors today, for the first time. The IRQ Not Less than or Equal and Driver State Power Failure have occurred sporadically, but a number of times each. At the recommendation of some websites, I removed my third party AV Software (MCafee and IOBIT Malware Fighter) for now, checked/updated every device in the device manager, and ran SFC /SCANNOW both in powershell and the command prompt. I see no issues, but I am not savvy in reading mini dump files and the like. Appreciate any help. Thanks, Marc

    warning   Warning
    Programs that claim to update your drivers install either the wrong or corrupted drivers.
    If you have installed any driver with Driver Booster 3, please remove them as it may cause trouble.

    For laptops, install the drivers the manufacturer provides.

    Follow up question


    axe0,

    Thanks for the response. I will verify my drivers and delete Driver Booster 3 as well as delete ASC.

    As for the
    Intel Rapid Storage Technology do you have any suggestions? Is it needed? Can I delete it? I have noticed that on occasion I got an "error" message from this program only to open it and not see anything wrong.

    One last question as I think it is tied to the Driver Power State Failure. On occasion when I wake my laptop up from sleeping, the screen is either black for a min or two before I get to the login, the login freezes for several mins before it lets me type my password, or worst case it freezes and I get a BSOD. An additional suggestions?

    Thanks again, Marc

    Usually one can safely remove Intel Rapid Storage Technology.

    It is possible that the black screen problem and login freeze is caused by your hard drive, 5.400 RPM with a SATA-300 connection.
    Please follow below instructions for the hard drive.

    I removed all Iobit products and downloaded/installed the Lenovo drivers including flashing my bios w/ an update. Attached are the results from HD Tune. Chkdsk and seatools came back without error.

    Your hard drive is at his end, you need to replace it a.s.a.p.

    Here is a benchmark of my hard drive (same hard drive type), it is slowly also getting at its end but will do for some time.
