I need some help please! I have a Asus p4b533, pentium 4 2.4GHz, windows XP pro.
I'm getting a blue screen that says: Driver_IRQL_not_less_or_equal
Idechnrd.sys Address F7488364 Base at F7484000 datestamp 3cb4d2c0.
I tryed to restart the computer in safe mode, but its not letting me, when I select safe mode it freeze for a while and then the blue screen appears again! :(
This happens after I installed google desktop 2, when I finished the instalation it ask me to restart the computer for the changes to take effect and then stop working. but I dont think this has nothing to do with it.
The BSoD is caused by bad drivers or system devices. follow these steps to remove unused drivers to see if its an unused driver is causng the problem:
1. Press [Windows]+[Break] to bring up the System Properties dialog box. 2. Select the Advanced tab and click the Environment Variables button. 3. Click the New button below the System Variables panel. 4. In the New System Variable dialog box, type devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices in the Variable Name text box and 1 in the Variable Value text box. 5. Click OK to return to the System Properties dialog box and then click OK again. 6. Select the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button. 7. In Device Manager, go to View | Show Hidden Devices. 8. Expand the various branches in the device tree and look for the washed out icons, which indicate unused device drivers. 9. To remove an unused device driver, right-click the icon and select Uninstall.
Similar issue here, I've had the IRQL BOSD, amongst another half dozen.
Got Win 7 a couple days ago along with a Nvidia 260gtx. Installed Win 7, got that up and running then put the vid card in, everything was dandy. Updated all the drivers to Win 7 when available and installed my basic programs (word processing, web browsers, etc). Then the other day I was playing Arkham Asylum, and my comp froze. Did a forced restart and then everything went to hell. I can no longer access windows 7 or xp, everytime i try to run a disk check it restarts, ditto with the win 7 memory diagnostic, I moved the vid card to the other PCI express slot farthest from the chipset, moved the hdds to get better air flow and been running with the case open thinking it may have been heating issues, didn't work. Then i started removing ram dimms one at a time and testing thosem no dice so i bought 2 new dimms, still no go. For a brief time i was able to get win 7 to work for a few min at a time, but a few min later comps would restart, i was able to kinda fix it by using the system restore but that no longer works. I have also reformatted the windows drive and tried to reinstall XP and Win 7, neither works. Win XP partially installs but reboots, win 7 partially installs but then something weird happens and it wont boot. Tried booting in safe mode, but it get to loding the classpnp file and just stops.
I think some of the fixes given earlier would work, but since I can't actually get into windows, even in safe mode, i can't try any of them. Gotten a bunch of BSODs through the whole process, copied down all the error messages, but i can't find most of them online, and those that i can find can only be resolved by actually having access to the desktop., which i don't have.
New development!!!: I cannot even boot from the win 7 or xp disks!!!!!!
I have the same problem with the same blue screen every time when I put my wireless network adapter in my laptop. I used the same card with the same laptop few months ago and worked fine...Anyone have any suggestion what I've might have changed in my windows config. so this thing happens?? Thanks a lot, Danijela
Hi all, I had the same issues with BSOD/iastor.sys and couldn't boot most times. Spent a few days trying to rollback, repair, restore, even rebuild the MBR, but nothing worked. It turned out to be a nasty rootkit infection. Had to use kapersky's tdsskiller.exe to kill it. I was able to boot into safemode with command prompt and run it (though 9 times out of ten safe mode would BSOD). Once I got it to run it took about 30 seconds to find it and kill it.
