Windows 10: BSOD IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL frequent crashing Solved

    BSOD IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL frequent crashing

    Hi guys,

    Been having large problem with frequent blue screens showing only IRQL NOT LESS OR EQUAL. The bsod doesn't anything more than that. This hasn't happened before 3 days ago but now happens maybe 1-3 times an hour. I have once or twice received a KMOD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED error instead. The only tie that I have found to these errors are that they often follow my chrome displaying some form of DNS error(The txt i saved the error to seems to not work will try to update with the correct msg). Once the webpages start responding I get maybe a 4-10 second window before the pc blue screens.

    add info:
    • I re-installed windows yesterday as a last resort to fix this issue, it seems to have made it worse.
    • I tried to use the cmd command verifier to test my drivers short - blue screened with a new error 20 secs after I got to desktop(I solved this but learnt nothing from verifier).
    • My PC is +-5 years old with some components being a bit newer
    • These crashes don't seem to occur in safe mode(I am posting this from safe mode
    • My pc has had a long term problem of maybe 3 years where it freezes very infrequently (the freeze is absolute not mouse movement or inputs. no crash the screen just stays frozen.) however I don't think that this is part of the same problem.
    • I have checked for scorch marks/other abnormalities on my hardware and everything seems fine.

    I have uploaded the system info recommended by the BSOD posting guide.
    Any help or ideas are welcome

    Hi Trudgedy,

    Welcome to the 10forums :)

    Please uninstall AVG and use Windows Defender as alternative while troubleshooting.
    Uninstall Solved Anti Virus (AV) stand alone removal tools - Windows 10 Forums

    Please check Netlimiter for software updates or remove it while troubleshooting.

    Please check ASUS for BIOS updates.

    Ok can do, should I re-upload the logs afterwards? And could it be either avg or net limiter they are both pretty recent additions to my pc?

    Both have been flagged, but it is not clear if it is both or either.

    New logs are only requested when another BSOD has occured.

    Seems to be fixed after uninstalling both avg and net limiter. Thank you so much for the help!
