    BSOD Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal (USBXHCI.SYS)


    Hey,

    I make music using a PreSonus Audiobox USB & FL Studio, BSOD crashing occurs randomly not at any specific time after connecting the USB Device.
    Im not sure if crashing will occur without FL Studio being open, but I don't think FL Studio is the problem.

    PC runs fine without any USB devices being used.

    *PC SPECS* (Just incase needed):
    - Computer Type: Custom PC/Desktop
    - System Manufacturer/Model Number: American Megatrens Inc.
    - OS: Windows 8.1
    - CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
    - Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. Z87-D3HP-CF
    - Memory: 16274 MB
    - Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770
    - Sound Card: Speakers (2- High Definition Au | Digital Audio (S/PDIF) (2- High
    - PSU: Cool Master GX (Bronze) 750W

    Please help, and let me know if any other info is needed.

    I can't get SF Diagnostic Tool to work.

    Update your Chipset drivers.

    thanks, but I went to try this and I cant find the Intel Z87 Chipset drivers.

    I also discovered I do not have any drivers installed for the following inside Device Manager>Other Devices:
    -PCI Simple Communications Controller
    -SM Bus Controller

    Please look for your dump file in C/ Windows / Minidumps directory or for memory.dmp in Windows directory as it is very hard for me to help you without it. Try other tools: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

    Don't open them. Copy them to desktop and zip them up. Attach them to your post.
