I had these same problems, after reading this thread, I updated my MB Drivers, even though I have a Dell, I updated direct from Intel for my chipset. no more lock ups!

My problem is fixed, turns out I had a bad mother board. I went to San Diego to visit my highschool girlfriend, and we were just kinda fooling around on the bed and I knocked over my laptop. long story short, motherboard got replaced by Dell for free and the problems gone. Did you know the Dell Tech Support is located in India? like in the country of India? I had no idea, anwyays no I've got to wair another two weeks as a pixel went bad and Dell is replacing my screen as well. Dell isn't that great but I can complain because the replaced everything for me free of charge. I think you only get this great mail in service if you buy your Dell on either a bisiness purpose or educational purpose, not home and home office.

Here's my story: recently (in fact two weeks ago) I changed my broadband ISP, switching from 128k/128k Cable to 256k/128k aDSL. The main difference between the two is simple: with my Cable ISP I connected my Cable modem via ethernet and with my aDSL ISP I connect my aDSL modem via USB ( a GreatSpeed GS-U210G Neo: http://www.greatspeed.com/products/u210gneo.htm ). Unfortunately with the latter I've been having frequent BSODs. Sometimes they seem to have been triggered by P2P programs (BitTorrent++ and Azureus), but most of the times they're unpredictable, happening in random occassions. The following is the relevant information from the BSOD:

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000008, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF76C3DC9)

NDIS.sys - Address F76C3DC9 base at F76B1000, Datestamp 3d6de4c3

Upon further analysis, I performed a dumpcheck on MEMORY.DMP:

Finished dump check

What's strange is that the BSODs only occur when I'm connected to the 'net. It's obvious that something's strange even when everything's "stable" because whenever I'm downloading something via HTTP, I get frequent "Connection reset" dialog boxes with Internet Explorer that force my download to stop. Other times while loading a page within a site I'll get a "Server not found" notice, but then I simply press F5 a couple of times and then it does. Maybe this is an ISP issue, but I doubt it. My question is the following: What is causing the BSODs and what can I do to fix it?

The only relevant information about my hardware that I could supply to help in this case would be my motherboard brand and model since it has the USB ports:
ASUSTeK A7N8X (Rev. 1.04) with nVidia Unified nForce drivers v2.45.

Any help at all would in fact would be most appreciated.

Thank you beforehand.

Make sure you update your chipset bios! From MB manufacturer or Chipset manufacturer if available.
If that doesnt help see what is sharing an IRQ with your USB, move or disable if not using whatever is sharing the irq. You should disable anything you dont use at all, ie serial ports etc. Frees up resources, just remember to re enable them if needed.

Hope this helps.

I had a number of problems with Win 2k USB connections a latter service pack fixed the problems . I think that a similar problem may exist with early Win XPsince the upgrade was probably post XP release. You get more than one USB peripheral and it confuses the drivers. Pain in the you know what.

Check out the service packs and also look at the M$ knowledge base

Because the problem is in the OS and Hardware interface each peripheral is affected differently and each supplier has a different problem from the same underlying problem. make sure you have the latest drivers install the service pack and reinstall the latest drivers

Wow, there sure are A LOT of people having the same problem here. I happens to be one of them :)
This problem (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL) only occurs while I'm playing counter-strike/other HL mods (I don't play other games that much). At first I thought that it was caused by my BIOS upgrade, so I flashed it back to the original version, but it didn't fix anything, so now I flashed it to the newest version which came out in november, and that still didn't fix the problem, so it's not BIOS related.
_____________________________________________________________________
I looked at the sharing/conflict in system information and found these:

I/O Port 0x00000000-0x00000CF7 PCI bus
I/O Port 0x00000000-0x00000CF7 Direct memory access controller

I/O Port 0x000003C0-0x000003DF SiS Accelerated Graphics Port
I/O Port 0x000003C0-0x000003DF NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440

IRQ 19 SiS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
IRQ 19 Creative SB Live! series

Memory Address 0xA0000-0xBFFFF PCI bus
Memory Address 0xA0000-0xBFFFF SiS Accelerated Graphics Port
Memory Address 0xA0000-0xBFFFF NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440

I/O Port 0x000003B0-0x000003BB SiS Accelerated Graphics Port
I/O Port 0x000003B0-0x000003BB NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440
_____________________________________________________________________

so now I'm suspecting that the problem is either caused by the conflicting IRQ between my sound card and NIC, or maybe my sound/video drivers. What do you guys think? any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!



My System Configuration:
===================
Intel Pentium 4 - 2.4GHz
ASRock GE PRO-HT motherboard
Chaintech Nvidia GeForce4 MX440 Video Card (64MB version)
Creative Live! 5.1 sound card
Windows XP

I don't know, but all I know is that I own a Dell 600m and it was using a ao5 bios and I upgraded to the a08 and I didn't get that problem anymore. and yeah I got it with my integrated ati viedo cards when playing games like Call Of Duty and Max Payne 2.

WinXP pro corp
Asus 7VA333 motherboard
AMD Athlonʂ XP 2000


I kept getting:
*irql not less or equal
*kernel dumping
*dxg.sys
aka BSOD :(

--I try reinstalling winXP many times: also tried win2000 server ed.
--disenabling my USB ports,
--reinstalling old/new drivers for my lan card, video card, sound card

But, nothing seems to work. I refuse to believe my ddr 512 ram had anyting to do with it. All the checking programs indicates that the RAM was in perfect condition. Then this saturday, as i was playing FFXI online the game crashed again and again. It came to the point that i couldnt take it anymore and went out and bought a new stick of ddr 512 pc2700. It cost my $67dollars but man'o'man!!!111!!!1!!

HAVENT SEEN THAT MOFO "BSOD" in two days!!!! before i switched the RAM, the BSOD came up nearly once per hour while im trying to lvl up in FFXI.

I know it isn't my RAM because I only get certain BSODs because I "trigger" them. For example, I just downloaded the Unreal 2: XMP demo and when I click "play online" I get that BSOD, however when I'm *not* connected to the 'net, I click play online and nothing happens, it works fine. Sure, I don't get a list of the servers, but at least I don't get that damn BSOD. The same thing happens when I try to host a game in UT2K3: it crashes immediately when somebody tries to connect while connected to the 'net.

let me ask you something, the video card is it ATI? I've heard there's problems with ATI drivers, and that it's probably better to go with an Nvida .
