    BSOD using Chrome + Skype, IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal.


    Dear all,

    My laptop has been suffering from BSOD almost every 1 hour since 2-3days ago!

    Key details of my laptop:
    Lenovo Y410P
    Windows 8.1 64-bit, x64
    i7-4700MQ
    RAM 8GB
    NVidia GeForce GT750M

    Error code: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    Extra note: I have moved my OS from the existing hard-disk HDD to a SSD since the very beginning (1.5 years ago) but the problem has only existed since 1 week ago. (I don't know how to reinstall windows 8 on my laptop.. will need guidance on this as well if necessary!)

    Please help, and thank you in advance!!

    Hello, and welcome to EF.

    It's always weird how errors like these can just happen out of nowhere. But these crash files are really detemined to blame your LAN driver:
    Code:
    Probably caused by :athw8x.sys ( athw8x+26cac7 )
    Let's update it: http://www.atheros.cz/

    Although that may not be the fix, lets keep with this for now, and go step by step instead of blasting you with a list of things to get done. Easier to narrow it down

    Thank you HonorGamer!!

    I have just updated my Wireless Driver 10 minutes ago. Will keep this thread updated with BSOD or not occurrences in the next few days.

    Hope all goes well!

    Sounds good! Just remember if you do get another BSOD, to do the same this as you did on the first post and follow the posting instructions.
