IRQL Errors and Fixes
Cause & Solution #1: Bad RAM - RAM memory is an important component to every computer system. Depending on the makerof the computer or if a user has built their own, having the correct type of RAM is crucial. However, sometimes even when the best type and the correct type of RAM is bought, it may be faulty. The solution to discovering if you have faulty RAM is to run the MemTest, a test designed to figure out RAM issues on a computer.
Cause & Solution #2: Bad Driver - Sometimes drivers don't install correctly, either because it was downloaded wrong or it is an incompatible version. This is probably the easiest of solutions, as you will just need to uninstall your current driver and either reinstall it or try downloading it again.
Cause & Solution #3: Incompatible software or hardware - While Windows 7 is quite capable of running a variety of software and hardware, there may be some things that it may be incompatible with. The best course of action is to ensure that what you have installed can indeed work on Windows 7 and that there is a driver (if possible) that is Windows 7 approved.
Most often, once these causes and solutions have been addressed and taken care of, a BSOD shouldn't plague your computer again.
