I've been having this problem a lot, and I've tried a lot to fix it. From updating all drivers I possibly could, to installing the latest version of my motherboard, and to reinstalling Windows 7. During playing certain games, my computer just loves to BSoD on them, and it's always the same error, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I'm getting annoyed at trying to fix this without completing anything, so I hope that the people of this forum are able to help me.

 

Games that are being effected:

Far Cry 3 (After updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)

Counter Strike: Global Offensive (After updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)

ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead (Before updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)

Counter Strike: Global Offensive (Before updating bios/reinstalling windows 7)

Probably some other ones that I may have forgotten, recovering from a sickness so my mind isn't exactly running that well either heh.

If anything else is needed I will edit/post. 

 

Just got a new update from my Graphics Driver so I'll be installing that.

How do you update your drivers through windows update or via manufactures site?

Also why did you flash the BIOS?

So it crashed prior to flashing?

Can you try getting the drivers from http://www.geforce.com and do a clean install.

Yeah happened before flashing. I've just installed the latest driver with it being a clean installed. I've done that before the bluescreening though too.

How to Test your RAM



Guide Overview

The purpose of this guide is to teach you how to check whether your system's RAM (Ramdom Access Memory) is working properly. Bad RAM can lead to a whole host of problems, often which do not appear to have a single cause -- appearing as systemwide glitches, blue screens, and other system trouble. MemTest86+ provides a very good detection mechanism for failed RAM, and is about as good a test you get short of actually replacing the module itself.

Tools Needed
Please perform these steps from a separate, working, machine.Perform these steps on the problem machine.
  • Put your CD in the drive and configure your machine to boot to the CD. This is different on all machines, but it's usually by pressing F12 or F10 as your system boots, and selecting either "CDROM" or your cdrom drive. If you are unable to force a CDRom boot, reply with the make and model of your machine and I should be able to get you exact instructions.
  • If you've done it correctly, MemTest86+ will start to run automaticly, as shown below:
    memtestStart.png
  • If you want to be reasonably your RAM is OK, then allow MemTest to run until you see this message:
    memtestFinished.png

    On the other hand, if you want to be completely sure your RAM is OK, allow MemTest to run overnight. Memtest will run forever until power is pulled on the machine.
  • Check the MemTest screen for any reported errors. Errors will appear as RED warnings at the bottom of the screen, similar to the following screenshot:
    memtestFail.png
  • Hard-Reset the machine, removing the MemTest disk in the process.
If you didn't get an error screen, Congratulations! :)

Compliments of Billy O'Neal.

I'm able to get Memtest to boot, but it only stays on for about a second before relaunching. I've built my own computer but it uses an ASUS P8 Z77-V LK Motherboard.

What do you mean by relauching, memtest restarts or the computer does?

Well the computer itself doesn't power down, so I'm guessing it's memtest.

To perform a more specific test, run Memtest86+ with one RAM stick at a time. Once you are done testing one module, take it out and test the others. If you get an error on one of these, you can be sure which module it is that is at fault.
