Driver IRQL less than or equal error
  

I have Windows XP home edition SP2 / 2GB RAM / 6800GT / D865GBF motherboard / Intel 2.8GHz CPU

I have Airtel Broadband connection using USB modem which uses driver called gaausb.sys

Recently I started getting this blue screen error stating "Driver IRQL less than or equal" and mentioning gaausb.sys at the bottom.

I ran memory test and apparently there are error bits.

Is there a way to solve this problem ?

By the way, this problem only happens when I log in to windows.

have you tried updating the modem drivers ? is there anything specific (or any pattern) that triggers the bsod ?

what are you using to test the memory ? recommended s'ware is memtest86, try adjusting the memory timings in the bios to suit your ram and run memtest again or else it could be time to get a replacement

I am using memtest-86 v3.2 by Chris Brady.

BSOD - what triggers it, I have no clue. Today, when I booted my system, it sailed through without any problem.

But it seems to be triggered by the modem driver gaausb.sys

how to identify the chipset of the modem. I am using xentrix x7005q USB modem.

I finally got rid of BSOD. Just swapped the USB Modem for an ethernet modem. Connected it through my Netgear Wirelss Router. Voila! No more BSOD.

Re: Driver IRQL less than or equal error

BSoD is normally caused by bad drivers or system devices. follow these steps to remove unused drivers to see if its an unused driver is causng the problem:
  • Go to System Properties dialog by pressing [Windows]+[Break],
  • Select the Advanced tab and click the Environment Variables button.
  • Click the New button below the System Variables panel.
  • In the New System Variable dialog box, type devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices in the Variable Name text box and 1 in the Variable Value text box.
  • Click OK to return to the System Properties dialog box and then click OK again.
  • Select the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button.
  • In Device Manager, go to View | Show Hidden Devices.
  • Expand the various branches in the device tree and look for the washed out icons, which indicate unused device drivers.
  • To remove an unused device driver, right-click the icon and select Uninstall.
