OMEN 16.1 inch Gaming Laptop PC 16-b1000 (4Z7U0AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

Windows 11 has a high possibility (4 out of 5) of running into BSoD upon system start. 


The error code is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, and the problematic driver is rtf64x64.inf


This driver is installed by OMEN Gaming Hub as a dependency of the feature Network Boosting


Uninstall the rtf64x64.inf solves the problem.

Try this.

In Control Panels > Network and Internet > Network Connections, go through all the properties of Ethernet, and uncheck Realtek LightWeight Filter (NDIS6.40)

Unticking the checkbox should do the job. Uninstall also works and have no side effect so far.

Hi ;

Today Hp support assinstant have been istalled on my victus 16.1 a new upgrade about the software of Omen Gaming hub networking booster.

I'm going to reset the settings of network module and checking if that upgrade solved the problem 😃

Ciao Marco per favore poi facci sapere come va!


Please let us know if the problem persists with the new driver and setting

HP Recommended

Resetting the network module with the new software upgrade... avoid the Bsod caused by Realtek NDIS LightWeight Filter

However I suggest to upgrade Gaming app from microsoft store because the new version fix the bug of the network booster.

The last check is to test the driverlaunching Verifier from Windows
