I recently installed windows 7 64-bit and since then whenever I attempt to run Azureus, Utorrent, or Bitcomet, I get a BSOD that says:
IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and the computer restarts after about 2 seconds. I ONLY get this BSOD when I turn on any torrent application
After doing some research I found it could be driver related, I've since checked all drivers(only one that was outdated was the NIC, was 32-bit needed 64-bit). I thought the NIC driver would fix it, but it did not.
One alarming thing I found, and this might be normal I really don't know... is that I have about 80 different "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant System" entries in my IRQ entries in device Manager. Is that normal?
Could this be an issue with mobo drivers? I'm having a hard time finding a driver that will work with this OS, the one posted here:
So I narrowed it down to my ram, I had recently bought 4 gigs of crucial memory to go with the 64-bit OS, and for whatever reason when I run torrents using this ram I get the above mentioned BSOD.
I put my corsair 2gigs back in and it's running torrents fine now, can anyone tell me why this would be? The 4 gigs of crucial RAM worked flawlessly on any other application, only torrent apps produced the BSOD.
Did you download Windows 7RC directly from Microsoft or from a Torrent website? There are many problems with some releases available through torrent websites. Also, have you installed MOBO drivers certified for Windows Vista 64-bit? This could be a conflict as well.
