hey guys i've been getting this error for over a year now and have no idea how to fix this. i've changed ram, hdd, went from windows vista to windows 7, and changed drivers. i still have no idea what this problem could be!
it started when playing either music, videos, or videogames. the computer would end up freezing and the sound would repeat.. sometimes it unfreezes.. most of the time it didnt. i would end up getting the blue screen stating "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal
".. but sometimes i wouldnt even get that error message and my computer would stay frozen. that lead me to the only option of force shutting down my system by holding the power button... then it became worse
not only do i still have the above issues, but now when i want to shut down or restart my computer, that wont even work at times. I would choose to shut down the computer.. everything would be normal, i get to the windows shutting down screen.. everything goes black, my keyboard turns off.. but my computer is still running. it will do this until i force shut it off again, sometimes it even goes back to the login like i chose to restart it.
i have no idea what i can do to fix this problem, if anyone has advice or ideas i would appreciate it greatly
