well to be honest - looking back at the thread title i didn't get the ndis.sys part just the irql not less or equal - are you getting that message exactly?

Do you have the latest driver installed for your graphics card? If not i would suggest doing so and see if that sorts the problem.

Yes i do but i disabled hyperthreading in the bios and i think it may have fixed the problem

cool... well if the problem comes back it is worth checking to see if your graphics card is sharing its irq as this is a known cause of your problem. Anyway fingers crossed!

I own a brand new Dell 600m Inspiron. I'm running a Intel Centrino and the network or wireless network cards are provided by the computer. For some reason my computer will freeze 3 times always, and then run smoothly. My mouse or touch pad appears to be messed up as sometimes it will just left click by itself. and Every 5 startups I get the IRQL not less or equal blue screen. Oh NO, NOT THE BLUE SCREEN!!!Have you tried calling Dell customer support? It's like it's in India or something?!?!?!? I need a translater for me to get anywhere, or we just spell out works to one another, at least it's not child labor. But it's quite frustrating. I'm a college Law Student at Michigan, and I don't have time to fool around with this computer just so it'll work.

I already tried to reinstall everything, and did you know that Dell never installed the proper drivers for my video card as the highest reolution was like a 800x600

64 meg ATI card
Centrino running at 1.3
256 ddr ram
XP PRO
CD-r/cr-rw/DVD

this problem can happen if the network card is trying to share irqs with the network card.... or basically if its trying to share an irq with anything it can upset itself.... can you right click on my computer, select properties, select the hardware tab, then select device manager, in the view drop down menu, select to view sources by type and then click the + sign next to interrupt request (IRQ). If you can copy your list here in the forum we'll go from there.... the problem wit XP is that it doesn't let you manually assign IRQs so it's a bit of a pain in the bum to sort this problem out... Oviously though I want to ensure that there is an IRQ conflict before i waffle you to death....

I have installed inno3D (nVidia) Geforce4 MX440 SE (64 bit) 64 MB DDR Graphics card in my PC (2.4 GHZ, 512 MB RAM). some times (on an average once in a day) while working with different applications
desktop screen becomes blur and text and pictures gets multi coloured and oot of colour synchronisation. This problem lasts mostly for a few seconds and gets rectified on its own. But occasionally computer got forced shut down with either of the following messages (one at a time)
" A problem has been tetected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. The problem seems to be caused by the following file : nv4_disp. The device driver got struck in an infinite loop. ........ beginning dump of physical memory".
"IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"
"PFN_LIST_CORUPT"
But when restarted computer works fine (of course with occasional blurring of screen). I have referred the problem to Inno Vision and as per their advise upgraded to the latest driver downloaded from their website. I have never faced similar problem when using intigrated grphics of the motehr board (Intel D845GEBV2). I have tried using another graphics cad in my pc, which worked fine. Can any one please help me out ?

suspect it's probably irq sharing causing the problem again on this one... check to see if you have any hardware conflicts in device manager and if your grpahics card is using the same irq as any other devices.....

I have checked and there is no conflict in device maanger. allotted IRQ is 16 and is shared with USB universal host controller. And as such I have switched OFF all USB devices but the problem continues.

Check the reason for the error message on the microsoft technet site. this will provide some clues if not the reason to enable you to fix it. The ndis sys is one of the underlying networking protocol applications and it is likely that the conflict is software not hardware and will reside in the equipment driver. Check for driver currency and ensure that you have the latest service pack installled often crappy little problems like this are resolved when they "refine" the system files and drivers. Either way check microsoft asnd the equipment provider and esure all are up to date.

Also in safe mode you may be able to log and this may provide some clue as to what is not loading properly

ok im getting this problem too. heres what im getting
i just got a BRAND NEW COMPUTER
whenever i turn my computer off. i have to push the power button for like 5 minutes to get it to come back on. whenever its about to come back on it'll start making a clicking sound. whenever i move the mouse and type on the keyboard i get this same clicking sound coming from the computer. sounds like its coming from the power supply if that helps.

whenever i run games, such as Warcraft 3 and Counter-Strike, run internet explorer for so long (only happened once on i.e.) and other things like icq and kazaa my computer would restart. i went to i went to system recovery setttings and turned off automatic restart so i would get the error message. it said DRIVER_IRAL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL at the top on a big blue screen followed by alot of text then some numbers and so on.

whenever i start windows i get this message.
the system has recovered from a serious error

and yes my network card is sharing the irq with my video card

Since it is brand new take it back and get in the stores ear. There would seem to be either a hardware fault in the PSU or possibly an inappropriate BIOS setting in respaect of power saving and the turn off times. If it is hardware the PSU could be hiccuping and this would bring down the computer. Either way the store should fixit.

i went to the guy that built for the computer for me and he put in a new P.S.U. and it fixed the turning on problem (note to everybody; RaidMax P.S.U.'s are pieces of garbage. he said thats the 2nd one thats done that to him in a week)
and i turner off hyperthreading and it fixed the Driver IRQL Not Equal Or Less error.

Oh It's funny because I've had that same problem, but everyone talks about hyperthreading. I've got a Centrino, there is no hyperthreading right? Dell REp (Some Indian Guy) told me that there was a problem with the integrated 64 meg video on the motherboard. HE said if i had went with a 32 it'd probably be okay, I then replied I would have never bought the system which is overpriced to begin with if it wasn't for the video card and the amount of mobility the system still had.
