Noticed three types of BSOD: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS OR EQUAL, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. ntoksrnl.exe is crashed most of the time.

Please help, cant fix this problem for 2 months. BSOD comes randomly when i play game DOTA2, or watch video online. Sometimes is just crashes if we dont use notebook for some time, it just starts rebooting.

Have tried updating drivers many times, then put back old ones, removed avast, tried lots of things but it did not help. I appreciate your help!

Sorry for the delay in responding. There just aren't that many people who do BSOD analysis, so at times we get a bit overwhelmed!

Do you still need help with this problem?
I will be notified if you reply to this topic and will respond within 48 hours.
