Blue Screen of Death: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

So I have been recently getting BSOD every now and then on my recently custom built PC.

It has an i7 3770k, GTX 670 and 12GB Ram

I have been goggling but not really got a solid solution, the thing that sticks out in my mind is that I recently installed the latest NVIDIA drivers (foir Far Cry 3 performance increase) and it was around the same time that it happened.

I have tried safe mode reinstalling them but it has happened again, so I'm not sure if it is the cause? Has anyone had issues with the latest drivers? (310.70)

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    You might need to first totally uninstall the drivers with a program made for that purpose.


    Could be a power supply issue, another usual culprit is overclocking. May need to back off or increase voltages.
  2. I cureently have 99% of stuff installed/stored on my second HDD (3TB)

    If I reinstall Windows on my primary SDD hard drive, will all my stuff still be there and work? will programs function properly?
