DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (STOP : 0x000000D1)

THIS BLUE SCREEN ERROR OCCURS SOMETIMES IN FIREFOX I HAVE SEARCHED ON GOOGLE THEN FOUND OUT THAT MICROSOFT HAD RELEASED AN HOTFIX PATCH FOR THIS ISSUE BUT THE PROBLEM IS THE PATCH IS MADE FOR WINDOWS VISTA & IM USING WINDOWS XP SP3 :(

HOTFIX RELEASED BY MICROSOFT

Who Crashed

it will scan your dumps (provided they are enabled and present) and tell you what caused crash(es).

Report back.

The BSOD usually reports driver file name which caused the crash. If its a hardware related driver you may be able to recover it by restoring old configuration or by reinstalling hardware.

It's likely that one of your RAM stick(s) is failing

(or the off chance that a DIMM slot on MB is failing).

RAM may also be housed incorrectly. Got the same

error a few days ago.

If you have more than one stick, try testing them

one-by-one in one DIMM slot. If they all fail, try

moving to the next DIMM slot. If that doesn't do

it, then replace with some other RAM stick.

Sometimes the RAM sticks will work fine until...

they are stressed, and then they fail. FireFox is

a memory hog and when you have FLASH playing, or

a few tabs open, then... BOOM! Shaka-laka-laka!

(I just wanted to say that).

Same blue screen error also occurred on my new laptop. First, I thought this is a hardware issue but then I updated windows and bios and this error disappeared. Note that, first time, the error occurred with firefox. I have switched to Opera as I do not like race between google chrome and firefox. They both are getting crazy. Firefox is totally losing its reputation due to this act. If they focus on precision, that would be better.

lol u should get some more knowledge about these issues before giving an advice coz ur un-aware of this fact that a faulty ram would cause random bsod’s along with lock-ups u know this bsod occurs at an specific point thus the route of this error will be a particular device driver…

sorry bro there’s no sign of any file in this bsod <_<

Around 80% of BSODs can be dealt with through extensive use of chkdsk.

According to this list, you might have incorrect, or in-

compatible drivers. Maybe outdated drivers, that don’t

work with the new software updates that you’ve been

doing ?.

There are softwares available that can check your

drivers and auto fetch new ones, if needed. I can’t

remember the name of it, but it used to come in pretty

handy.

I like Asad’s idea of system checking and cleaning.

AVG Tuneup is a nice handy tool for autumn cleaning.

PS: There is some information about IRQL error that you

have reported.


Causes of Stop 0x000000D1

Stop 0x000000D1 error might show at regular intervals, or in connection with some other event. Every so often a Stop error may emerge to be entirely random. If a Stop error identifies a driver, the problem may not be the reported driver, but other hidden errors. In brief, a Stop error can be a indication of some other problems. The real challenge is to discover the origin of the cause. The error can be caused by many things, such as:

  1. Installing low quality or incompatible drivers or system services
  2. Bad or corrupt hard drives
  3. Damaged RAM memory, motherboards or power supplies
  4. Damaged virtual memory page file
  5. Plugging in or a surprise removal of a USB device.

Here is another site describing stop errors. http://aumha.org/a/stop.htm

0x000000D1: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

(Click to consult the online Win XP Resource Kit article.)

The system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. The most typical cause is a bad device driver (one that uses improper addresses). It can also be caused by caused by faulty or mismatched RAM, or a damaged pagefile.
