Windows 10: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (tcpip.sys)

  1.    22 Apr 2016 #1


    Hello everyone,

    I recently updated to Win 10 64bit a few months ago, but over the past few weeks I keep getting sporadic BSODs from the same 2 "addresses". Usually it happens when I'm opening a new tab in Firefox, but it has also happened while playing Dota 2. I've noticed that since it started happening, when I restart, my AMD Gaming Evolved app takes a good 20 seconds from the time it pops up for me to be able to connect like I don't have an internet connection.

    I've reinstalled my drivers, ran anti-malware software, and have looked at many unhelpful threads.

    Please help I'm going crazy. I've added 2 pictures that show the errors in BlueScreenViewer along with the DM Log Collector files.

    Thanks in advance,

    Update both your windows 10 networkdrivers for:

    Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I218-V ( see under LAN)
    Broadcom 802.11ac Network Adapter ( see under Wireless)

    From your supportpage for your mobo

    Advice: update also all your other drivers to the latest versions.

    I updated everything and it's still happening.

    Same probable cause though, NFC_Driver.sys. You have a ASUS mainboard so worth trying.

    NFC_Driver.sys is a component of ROG Game First III.

    It is a very frequent BSOD causer. The built-in network monitor of the program causes natio.sis and tcpip.sys malfunction.

    I uninstalled it and haven't had any issues so far, I even rapidly opened up new webpages and it didn't crash when it normally would have, so I think it is solved, but I should reinstall and update it and see if it still works.
