Win 7 BSOD SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION & IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

April 8, 2012 at 07:49:52
Specs: Windows 7
Hey guys ive been experiencing these two blue screens.

Error: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

Error: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

I have updated my drivers, downgraded done a clean install of drives etc...

I also ran my pc in safe mode for sometime to determine the source being hardware or software and its obviously software since it didn't occur in safe mode.

I also go the following information using whocrashed program for the SYSTEM SERVICE error:

crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\040812-18891-01.dmp
This was probably caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+0x70540)
Bugcheck code: 0x3B (0xC0000005, 0xFFFFF80002ADE41F, 0xFFFFF8800A1250D0, 0x0)
Error: SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION
file path: C:\Windows\system32\ntoskrnl.exe
product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
company: Microsoft Corporation
description: NT Kernel & System
Bug check description: This indicates that an exception happened while executing a routine that transitions from non-privileged code to privileged code.
This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
The crash took place in the Windows kernel. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver which cannot be identified at this time.

Certainly worth running the RAM test although I understand your logic about software and tend to suspect a drivers issue. As you probably know, safe mode uses minimal drivers.

Can you explain what you mean by "downgraded" - thx?

Did you run the computer for a while in normal mode before upgrading drivers?

You could see if unticking anything in "msconfig > startup tab" helps (just in case it is some specific program causing the problem).

See if you can determine if there is anything in particular that you are doing when you get these BSOD's. EDIT: Oops, I see that has already been asked.

Run sfc /scannow just to make sure your windows files are OK.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
