My System


Hi,
I was just about to start an application when I received my first BSOD, with an IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL message, upon reboot I got a BSOD with PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA, it then alternated between these two messages a few times on reboots with BSOD's.
This also happened when I tried to enter windows in safe mode.

I eventually went into bios, and turned my RAM speed down, it was set to 'clock up', I switched it back to auto. PC booted ok. However the RAM had been set that way for months with zero errors. On loading windows I got the 'pc has recovered from a serious error' window, which hinted at USB device errors.

My PC stats are :-

Windows Vista
ASUS Rampage II Extreme (on board sound)
Intel I7 920
12GB Corsair DDR3 1600
EVGA Geforce 295
Tagan BZ1100 PSU
2x Raptor 78GB HDD's
1x 750GB WD Eco-Drive

On USB I have:-
Logitech G15 Keyboard
Logitech G9 Mouse
Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller for Windows (wired)
Nokia Phone Charger/Interface (attached but phone not currently plugged in)

Drivers are upto date I think, if not the newest, then almost


Any help appreciated.

What are the Error Codes on the BSOD?
I would be suspicious of the Tagan PSU.

is the only info i have, sorry, should of written down the stop codes.

Why do you think its the psu? I did a lot of research when I bought it and it seemed the best, most reliable buy for the cash at the time, just wondering as other people on TSF have mentioned the tagan as being 'dodgy' before too.

IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL usually relates to ram being faulty test with memtest86.

could a bad HDD also be responsible? I have been having my doubts about one of the raptors, which windows is on. Yesterday the desktop kind of refreshed, but the icons are wrong now, for instance the battlefield icon has the icon of teamspeak and so on, going into properties and changing the icon does not fix it.

Why not run CHKDSK on the hard drive to see if it is ok and if you want to be double sure download the hard drive manufacturers diagnostic utility and run that.

Tagan power supplies have never been that good in my opinion, the PSU is the most important component you have so it should always be the best and that means spending a bit of cash.

sorry for late reply, had no dvd writer, so took me a while to get one to write a memtest disk. Done that now and left it running all night, 5 passes total, zero errors, so I guess the ram is ok. CHKDSK returned no errors also. So I am left thinking it was the fact that I had set the ram to run at 1600 mhz, which seems strange to me, as it is afterall, 1600 mhz ram.

As to the PSU, that one cost a fortune, nearly 200, so I didn't skimp on it, hehe. I do have a spare 750W Thermaltake toughpower I could try the system with, but i'm guessing I would have to remove a lot of hardware first as 750W isn't big enough right?
I could half the ram to 6gb, and maybe remove a raptor, would that be enough?

I don't think so, I think the 750 will be ok.
