I installed an incompatible driver on my windows vista. I've restored the computer but the blue screen keeps popping up. I have no clue on how to fix it. Here is what the blue screen says:

driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check to see if any new hardware or software is properly installed
If this a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows update you might need:

If problem continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware/software. Diable bios memory option such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options and then select safemode.

Technical information

It's caused by bad SATA and/or motherboard drivers for your motherboard. Which model is the board and what nVidia chipset does it use?

Did you install updated drivers via Windows Update? I know the Microsoft supplied nVidia chipset/SATA drivers have been less than stellar when it comes to Vista.

If you did a full restore and the problem is still there, then you are looking at a hardware issue. You need to run a diagnostic and test the hard drive and memory first.

How did you "restore" your computer? Did you use the System Restore function or did you use a System Recovery Disk?

I used the system recovery disk.

I still have not been able to fix the problem so any help would be greatly appreciated.
