4 crash dumps have been found and analyzed. No offending third party drivers have been found. Consider configuring your system to produce a full memory dump for better analysis.


Read the topic general suggestions for troubleshooting system crashes for more information.

Note that it's not always possible to state with certainty whether a reported driver is actually responsible for crashing your system or that the root cause is in another module. Nonetheless it's suggested you look for updates for the products that these drivers belong to and regularly visit Windows update or enable automatic updates for Windows. In case a piece of malfunctioning hardware is causing trouble, a search with Google on the bug check errors together with the model name and brand of your computer may help you investigate this further.

More about irql equal bsod
  1. Hi -

    All 4 dumps have bugcheck 0xa = driver attempted to access pageable memory at a time it should not have.

    All 4 list ntoskrnl.exe as the probable cause, but it is the Windows N Kernel & is not the cause, rather listed by default.

    If software is the cause, Driver Verifier can help - Driver Verifier - BSOD Related

    Make sure networking drivers are updated. Check manufacturer's suport site for BIOS update.

    Regards. . .
