Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal - Bsod After Installing Norton


Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal -bsod appers after installing norton anti virus 2009, i bought my new laptop some days before, it had already anti virus software installed. S the subscription got expired, i tried to update the antivirus software using norton anitvirus 2009 in windows 7. Installation was success, but after restarting, bsod appeared. I did system restore and removed the old anitvirus software using removal tool, again bsod.

Black Screen After Installing Norton

It seems this is a common problem from what i have read. I have an acer pc that was recently upgraded to windows 7. The pc was working fine until last night when i tried installing norton 360 3. 0 (i was previously running norton internet security 2009). When i started installing 360, it detected that i had internet security already installed and began uninstalling it.

Everything was going fine until it restarted after the uninstall. As it finished starting up, i got the dreaded black screen. I can see & move the cursor, do a cntl-alt-del to go into task manager, but that's about it. I've tried booting in safe mode (several options), doing a system restore and just about every other option for startup, and nothing helps. Please advise.

Bsod After Installing Xp Mode And Virtual Pc

I am getting the bsod after rebooting my machine after installing xp mode and windows virtual pc. After installing xp mode and then wvpc, the computer reboots and finishes the update. At that point i can bring up xp mode and use it. It is the next time i restart the computer i get the bsod. I have narrowed down the problem to the windows virtual pc update (kb958559) that is causing the problem, but no idea why. I can consistently replicate the problem and system restore is the only way to get the machine to work again. I was on windows 7 home premium and upgraded to professional using the upgrade anywhere. My chip will handle hardware virtualization and it is turned on in my bios (can't manually do it, but it is turned on by default and the windows tool confirmed it). Dell studio xps 9000. Any help would be appreciated. Getting a little frustrated at this point.

Bsod When Installing Nvidia Card Drivers

Important info:
Graphics card: geforce 7950 gx2
Ram: 2 gigabytes
Hdd: 400 gigabyte sata drive
Processor: amd athlon 64 fx-62 (dual core, 2. 8 ghz)

I have a shuttle pc, and am running the latest bios, not sure the version number, but i just flashed it several days ago when still on xp.

Okay, here goes. I just installed a clean copy of windows 7 x64 pro over windows xp. It was a major pain, i kept getting a blue screen error when setup was 'completing'. It was a stop error for file nvlddmkm.sys, which after some research, i believe it to be a nvidia file. I could not get win7 to install.

Finally, after hours of research, i finally got it to work by deleting the nvlddmkm.sys files during the 'expanding windows files' step. This was done via command prompt (shift f10). I believe i found the steps for this process here.

Continuing, i'm finally booted into windows, and i'm assuming that i am running the basic windows vga drivers. I ran windows update and attempted to install the drivers for my 7950 gx2, reboot, 'windows is starting', bsod. Boot into safe mode, uninstall drivers, install drivers from nvidia, reboot, bsod.

It seems that no matter what set of drivers i install, after i reboot, the computer will say 'starting windows' and then will get the bsod. The code is 116, and the associated file is nvlddmkm.sys.

I know that during the install process that i deleted the nvlddmkm.sys file from two locations. I believe one was in the system32 folder, can't remember the other location. Currently, this file is not located in the drivers folder (c:windowssystem32drivers).

Can you guys please help me in getting my graphics card drivers installed?  No matter what i do, i get a bsod after a reboot and before windows loads. I have tried several versions of the driver but to no avail. I believe i might need to copy the nvlddmkm.sys file to somewhere. I do have a nvlddmkm. Sy_ file that is packaged with all the drivers, but i believe it needs to be expanded?

Bsod After Installing 8gb Ram On Win 7 64-bit

Athrxusb.sys Driver Problem Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal

I have been having a terrible time with a new computer i have purchased, it is the infamous driver_irql_not_less_or_equal. After searching the internet relentlessly for a solution to this problem, i have decided to post my own question, because it seems that this error is caused by faulty drivers or not properly installed drivers. I then searched for the driver named in the bsod, athrxusb.sys, and found it belongs to my smcwusb-g, part number 99-012084-552.

I have followed the procedures of many forums before deciding to post, i have tried uninstalling old drivers, moving the wireless adapter to different usb ports, and reinstalling the drivers. I also used programs such as device doctor to locate old and outdated drivers to replace them.
I would just go buy another wireless adapter, but i am worried that the driver, athrxusb.sys, will be required for any wireless adapter, no matter which i buy. I have seen that this error spans across multiple versions of windows operating systems, why not release a patch to fix this error? Is there one? If there is can it become more readily available to the public?

Ultimately i would like to fix the solution, buying a new device is not out of the option, i just want my pc to be able to connect to the internet without causing a bsod and wireless is the only option.

Problem Uninstalling Norton 360

I subscribe to verizon security suite. My intent was to leave the norton 360 security program which came with my new netbook on the computer while downloading the verizon security program. I had almost completed the verizon program when i received a message that i would have to uninstall the norton program because of a conflict. I then tried uninstalling the norton program and received another message stating there was download in progress and i would have to wait. So i went back and canceled the verizon download and then tried to uninstall the norton program again and received the same message.

Norton 360 Scanning Is Very Slow

If it is not norton is there something in windows 7 that i need to change or fix?Norton 360 scanning is so slow that it makes the computer useless. I have a 3. 6ghz pentium, 4gb memory, ssd boot drive, windows 7 home. I did a clean install using windows 7 upgrade over windows xp. I have been working with norton tech support and they cannot find a problem. I have uninstalled norton and my system runs fine. When i reinstall norton it slows to a crawl. It is apparent that it is norton scanning of web and e-mail material that is slowing things down.

The system appears to freeze until a scan is completed, and then proceeds. A full system scan of my computer took almost 6 hours because the scanning is so slow. It took more than 2 hours to scan less than 2000 files. I am using internet explorer for my web browser and microsoft outlook for my e-mail. What settings or controls could be causing norton scans to be so slow?

Error Norton - Operation Returned / Timeout Period Expired

I've a new alienware pc with windows 7 ultimate. I put norton antivirus 2009 on it and performance went poor. I uninstalled norton using its complete uninstall utility. I then installed microsoft security essentials. I now cannot get windows defender to run. I suspect norton turned it off & did not clean up after itself.

When i try to start it from the control panel, it reports that it is turned off. When i click the provided link to turn it back on, i am now getting an error code " operation returned because the timeout period expired 0x800705b4" i've searched ms answers on that code without finding any information i could use.

Windows Security Versus Norton Security

I have just taken for granted that i need a separate security company, because every time i purchase a computer, "norton" came with the included software. My question is; is windows defender and ms security sufficient security for a home computer?

Bsod - Driver_power_state_failure

I recently wanted to updated my qosmio g50-12f from vista 32bit to 7 64bit. I did a clean install: formatted the c partition.

Everything seemed to work fine until the "setup is preparing your computer for first use" screen. At first i thought it just froze as it wouldn't go any further. Rebooting (in any modes) would get the same effect.

But to my great surprise and pleasure, it managed to pass that point when i desperately decided to wait long enough for a miracle to happen. But the problem still remains. The configuration process is just !Really! Slow. I could painfully pass the first few screens, like enter computer's name, key activation screen, updates modes, but with a very long waiting time between each. And then it would suddenly go to a bsod:

Driver power state failure
*** Stop 0x0000009f (0x0000000000000003, 0xfffffa800193dd70, 0xfffff80000b9c518, 0xfffffa80029c8610)

Please anyone has any ideas about how to solve this? Obviously it should be a driver problem, but how do i get to update any drivers without an os running? I've seen such a feature in the repair section of the install dvd but it only accepts . Inf files. And i can t find those anywhere on toshiba's support website. Only .exe that you run from your already running os.

Bsod - Memory_management

New build. Decided to go with win7. Cannot get the machine going. What i have:

Gigabyte p55a-ud4pintel i7-860ocz 4g ram 92 -2g sticks above items assembled and post test at micro center store before i brought home windows 7 home premium 64 - bit dvd installed in sonata iii case with 500w ps radeon hd 4670 1g video card seagate 1tb 32mb hdd (sata) logitech mk300 wireless keyboard & mouse pioneer dvr-218lbk (sata)i have attempted a number of installs and so far all have failed at some point.

I have received a couple of memory_management errors with bsod. I am beginning to wonder if i have a bad memory stick and if i should just randomly remove one (if the system will even run that way). Since i have not been able to get far enough in the install to install any drivers or windows & i assume i cannot run any kind of tests. I am assuming that the first thing to run after the system buildup was the win7 disc and it would prompt for hdd partitions and request drivers for hardware etc. I have build winxp systems for myself & son's and have not had issues there.

Last night i got message that windows is loading files; then starting windows; then a choice screen for language, time & currency and keyboard; select install now; setup is starting; license window; partition window(did show a system partition of 100mb and a second large partition where windows could install); i selected the large partition for the install location; message-copying files;then-expanding files; at about 1% expansion i got bsod - windows cannot install required files- error code 0x80070570.

I started again this am and did not get as far as last night and got the bsod - memory_management error with technical information of stop: 0x0000001a frustrated enough that i want to try installing my old winxp or returning the system for a refund.

Multiple Bsod

So as of today i have been getting multiple bsods i have no clue why, it happens when i am doing basic every day things such as browsing the internet, i have not gone anywhere suspicious of malware or anything like that so i do not think that is the case but it may be. Any suggestions? Log below. Additionally the bsod does not look how it should, it has solid black on the sides, i am assuming that is just a change of resolution because the bsod wont go as big as my screen but i could be wrong. If you need any more information please ask.

Win 7 Bsod Help

I got a new laptop about a month ago, since then i've gotten about 3 or 4 bsods. The bsod's started sometime in early january and it would always happen when my computer is in sleep mode so that after i wake my computer there would be a window that tells me the computer had shut down unexpectedly. So i did a fresh install on the 14th. And i got the report this morning that my computer had shut down unexpectedly.

This is what the box said this morning:

Problem signature
Problem event name:bluescreen
Os version:6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 768. 3

Bcp4:82d3cb24
Os version:6_1_7600
Service pack :0_0
Product:768_1
Bucket id:memory_corruption_one_bit_large

And i found this in the event viewer

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000009f (0x00000004, 0x00000258, 0x853ced48, 0x82d3cb24). A dump was saved in: c:windowsmemory.dmp. Report id: 011910-16114-01.

I'm running 32-bit windows 7 home premium
Programs i installed:
Firefox
Avast 5
Itunes
Ccleaner
Open office
Foxit reader
Quicktime
Skype

What's the problem (or how do i find out)?

Bsod After New Cpu

I've been looking and haven't seen anything on this topic, but if there is, sorry, didn't see it.
Anyways, i have been getting bsods every 2-4 hours ever since i installed my new processor. I cannot imagine why, but it happens, always saying usb_bugcode. As far as i am concerned the machine runs perfect; everything is fast, including games at 60 fps at least, would probably be even more when my 9800 gt gets back from repair (using a backup 8600 gt while it does). Anyways, people are saying it is my memory, however, like i said, everything is perfect besides the bsods and the occasional install error code.

I find it hard to believe that my 4gbs of ram, which by the way i found no errors on with memtest86 or windows memory diagnostics, suddenly became corrupted right on the minute when i installed my processor, not to mention the speed at which my computer runs. Would anyone know if the graphics card is doing this? Is its vram corrupt? Or is the computer just going mental because i installed a new cpu suddenly? I did format the hdd and reinstalled, so i know it's not viruses. The cpu is an e8400 @ 3. 00 ghz core 2 duo, 4gb of ram, an old 8600 gt, running windows 7 x64.

Bsod - System_service_exception - Bad_pool_header

The 1st bsod was the 3b system_service_exception from which the system recovered and was rebooted. The 2nd bsod 19 bad_pool_header, shortly followed. Any suggestions as to why it happened, where to go for a solution or what hardware is the culprit?

Bsod Shutdowns - Memory_management

I've experienced some seemingly random blue screen shutdowns that have different errors displayed in the second line. I know i've seen memory management and irql not less or equal but there were others as well. So far i've taken out each one of my four 2gb ddr2 ram sticks individually and waited to see if a blue screen still appears, and it eventually does. Now i'm at a loss and have no idea what to try next.

Bsod Using Nvidia 8600gts

Absod using nvidia 8600gts - tried multiple driver versions, no luck, anyone have a quick fix for this issue, which allows me to use both of my monitors? 

I've been running vista x64 home premium since mid '07 with relatively few problems, but i wanted to try out windows 7, so i bought an upgrade to win 7 x64 home premium over the weekend. The system immediately became quite unstable, rarely working for 10 minutes without an abrupt reboot or freeze. Through experimentation i was able to turn the problem off/on by disabling/enabling the pci-e graphics card and instead using the built-in graphics card on the motherboard.

With my add-on card active, the computer will crash randomly when surfing the web or performing usual windows activities, like browsing the start menu. It can be forced to crash rapidly by personalizing the desktop and clicking a few aero schemes one after the other - it rarely allows more than one or two clicks before freezing or rebooting. The add-on video card is a msi nx8600gts-t2d256ez hd (geforce 256mb 128-bit gddr3 pci-e x16)

I've tried a few versions of nvidia drivers to no avail - there is really no notable difference in the crash behavior. I ran the memory test tool and it found no problems. I've even tried "underclocking" the gpu using a tool from nvidia, but that also had no effect. Crashes are less frequent if i turn off aero (but still occasionally occur when browsing websites). To reiterate, crashes are completely stopped (aero or not) if i disable the nvidia card and use the built-in graphics on my motherboard.

Bsod - (bugcode_usb_driver (bugcheck Fe))

4 minidumps uploaded (together with screenshots from "system information" for: display, input-keyboard, input-pointing device, storage-ide, usb, hw_resources (conflicts/sharing, io, irqs, memory)) to:

http://cid-ce87c5825e741930. Skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/. Public/minidumps/win7-64

The problem seems to be related to usb related driver(s) (i.e. Bluetooth (widcomm/microsoft)).

Any ideas?
