Blue Screen DRIVER_IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL

I've been having an ongoing issues with an error. It occurs randomly and has been doing it since I've build my PC about 3 months ago. Everything runs fine except for a error with a blue screen that will restart my PC. DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (e22w8x64.sys). All of my drivers are up to date and I've tried a few others things.

  1. Do a memtest that's usually what that error means

    Shouldn't a memtest be done before the ram is in use by windows for best results. Also, I have no cd drive on my PC, what would be the best way to do the test then?
  3. Go to Memtest.org it will give you instructions to either make a bootable CD-ROM or USB drive. Memtest is something that you will boot to, or run BEFORE Windows is run.

    I already had windows installed and running. Should i download bootable ISO or bootable Binary?

    I just finished running the memtest overnight, I had no errors. Is there anything else I could try?
  7. You can try HDDtune to rule out the hard drive.
  8. Try opening command prompt in administrator mode (Start>run> cmd> Shift+enter) the running "sfc /scannow" without the quotations.
    This will start the system file check function. It may take a while to run, and you might have to insert your Windows Install CD if it finds any errors.

    I ran HDDtune and came up with no errors.
  10. Just a thought but do you by chance have either an MSI or killer Ethernet?

    Are you talking about motherboard? Yes, I have a MSI motherboard with killer network.

    Thats what it is. Try updating the NIC drivers and if that doesn't work follow this guide.

    That would be the Killer Network Driver here: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z87G45_GAMING.html#download
    Correct? I am pretty sure that driver was up to date. I updated it again and will keep you informed, Thank You.
