    Bsod irql_not_less_or_equal


    I did a clean reinstall of Windows yesterday because it was having some issues, and while downloading programs/games again I've been getting BSODs every few hours. I had errors with drivers when I first built this computer but I'm hoping that they're compatible/updated to be compatible with 8.1 by now. Let me know what I can do! Thanks.

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    Only 6 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 60 to 90 or more. Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

    Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available.

    Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions).
    Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): New link (15 Aug 2012): DuplexSecure - Downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).
    Alternate link: Disk-Tools.com
    Manual procedure here: Registry and SPTD problems | DAEMON Pro Help
    This is possibly a hardware problem. Please run these free diagnostics: Hardware Diagnostics

    AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.
    NOTE: these symptoms were from the previous release of OverDrive. The new release uses the same driver name, but is dated from 4 November 2013.
    Please un-install all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program
    Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD (in the upper right corner of the page)
    Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure - Sysnative Forums

    If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
    Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
    Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Un-install". Reboot for changes to take affect.
    Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.

    If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.
    Please uninstall the Western Digital software also. The wdcsam64.sys driver dates from 2008 and is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.

    If all this doesn't stop the BSOD's (and all the hardware diagnostics pass), then please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings
