    IRQL not Less but not Equal


    Hi everyone, this is my first post so I'm not that fond of the forum yet.

    I keep getting BSOD Saying IRQL not Less but not equal. It only seems to be happening to my cpu when I am watching media such as YouTube. It runs for maybe five minutes then error code IRQL LESS BUT NOT EQUAL Shows up.

    I've done some researching and downloaded WhoCrasehd and I got these reports:

    On Mon 8/19/2013 12:45:50
    AM GMT your computer crashed
    crash dump file:
    C:\Windows\Minidump\081813-13478-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the
    following module: tcpip.sys (0xFFFFF8800196B245)
    Bugcheck code: 0xD1
    (0x0, 0x2, 0x0, 0xFFFFF8800196B245)
    Error: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    file path:
    C:\Windows\system32\drivers\tcpip.sys
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System

    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: TCP/IP
    Driver
    Bug check description: This indicates that a kernel-mode driver
    attempted to access pageable memory at a process IRQL that was too high.
    This
    appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a
    hardware problem.
    The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your
    system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by
    another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.




    Hopefully you guys can shed some light on these because I've grown tired of trying to find out what this is.
