Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal
I have a Gateway FX laptop and today it started flashing a BSOD and restarting. So I looked up on google and I found out how to turn off the automatic restart, did that and now at startup i get the Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal message. Also the last time I did get it to start the BSOD I got was a Windows State Power Driver Failure. I have tried restarting in safe mode but I still get the same BSOD. So any ideas on what to do?

Re: Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal
I assume that you are using a Windows Vista opearting system? And the problem that you are facing might be because of a network driver issue. Does this board perhaps have firewall active as that has been known to cause this issue also. You might need to disable onboard nic and try a pci card. You can also follow the tips given here to solve this issue:
