I had a blue screen with the error : DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL .
On the Microsoft knowledge base, there are different articles and I don't
which one is the right one.
So I saw the article 314084 (
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314084&sd=ee ) which
explains how to gather information after a memory dump in Windows XP. It says
that using dumpchk.exe , one can get a value for ExceptionAddress. The
problem is that when I use dumpchk.exe, I don't see any field called
ExceptionAddress.
Probably dumpchk.exe has been updated for Service Pack 2 and the Microsoft
article doesn't apply to SP 2.
I would liek to identify the driver that caused the exception.
Can you help ?

Event ID & the Event Source are very important.

To open the Event Viewer...
Start | Run | Type: eventvwr | Clcik OK

Double click the event in Event Viewer | Click: the button below the second

Oops. Just found this in my drafs folder. I thought I sent it.

Was there an error in the Event Viewer in Application or System around the
time that you see the Save Dump? I.e. Date: 7/27/2005 Time: 12:14:56 PM

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL brings up a lot of hits.

As I said in my first post, I knew there was all these articles. But to know
which one to use, I need to identify the driver that caused the exception.
For that, I followed the article 314084 but I don't have the field
ExceptionAddress , as I shown in my second post. Does anyone know how to
debug a memory dump in Windows XP SP2 ?
