    BSOD Continue after Replacing Bad RAM

    Hey Everyone,

    Recently experienced BSOD's that became more and more frequent. Always containing the error message IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I ran memtest and found that one of my sticks of ram went bad and so I replaced them both. The same day I started having blue screens again sometimes as frequent as 3 or 4 times a day. Most of the times these blue screens come while gaming, but not always. The requested zip folder has been attached, if you have any other questions feel free to ask and thanks in advance for taking a look.

    Thanks a million for your help. I'm out of town for a few days but will update the thread with results once I have made your suggested changes.

    Just out of curiousity when I was using BlueScreenView to look at the dumps everytime ntoskernel.exe seemed to always be the culprit. Do these drivers relate in anyway to this?

    Daemon Tools drivers are known for causing troubles and the driver of TP-Link is really old which could mean instability problems with newer systems.
    I'm not sure about nVidia. As I understood it not always causes trouble, you have a newer version then the one that causes trouble, but still it is smart to update the driver IF that is possible. Sometimes reļnstalling a driver could also solve problems.

    Ofcourse, before updating always make sure you back up your stuff in case things only get worse.
