Hi, I have been getting random blue screen's and it auto restarts my computer randomly.. It happens randomly at different times , sometimes it does, sometimes it does not.
I managed to caught what it was before it restarted and it was something like
"DRIVER_IRQL(Or I*QL)_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

It was something like that, I have no idea what it means so is there anything I can do? Maybe update the specific driver so it does not crash on me so often again?

I have kaspersky Internet security installed(Paid) and apparently it doesn't detect any virus whatsoever. So I'm presuming it's my drivers, just unsure which to upgrade.

Thank you very much for your help much appreciated.
:thumbsup:

Hi :thumbsup:.

To enable vision of the BSOD screen, you can Disable Auto Reboot On System Crash - http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm

Then post the exact error message as it appears.

You can also take a look in Event Viewer and see if you can spot any errors noted which coincide with the times of your initial BSOD. Ignore information items in Event Viewer and just focus on errors. If you find one, double-click on that item and post the details of that item in the forum.
