    Hello all,



    Ok so I built my new computer about a week ago, and I'm having a BSOD problem. It seems to happen randomly, but one thing for sure sets it off is when I'm using uTorrent, or any other bittorrent program. This isn't the only cause, but it's defintely one of them. I know because I can reboot and leave my comp alone and it'll be fine for hours, but if I just run utorrent, it'll BSOD after 10-20mins.



    The BSOD problem is "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL." From what I know this is caused by a Driver issue (that's why i'm posting it in the Drivers forum.) However, i've updated EVERY driver to the latest and it's still happening. I've done windows update, latest bios, latest motherboard drivers (located here http://preview.tinyurl.com/5rj53d ), sound card driver, video card driver (running a GTX 260), VIA V-Raid driver, and keyboard+mouse driver. I don't know what else to update. I even downloaded a program called Driver Genius Professional to find anything missing, but still nope.



    Also, I downloaded memtest86 to make sure my ram is all good, and it passed with no errors.



    I'm so f*cking frustrated by this.



    Can anyone help me out? No suggestion is too stupid. Someone told me I need to make sure my "IRQLs" are the same, but I have no idea what that is or how I fix it. I formatted my harddrive before I put it in my new comp, so there isn't any lingering files that could be causing this.



    I'm also cross-posting this in the Vista installation & setup forum, so sorry if that's against the rules.



    Thanks in advance,

    Andrew.

    Did you look through our Official Guide to fixing BSOD errors? That shows you how to run some diagnostics that should at least identify the driver causing the problem.
