Blue screen, storport.sys driver_irql_not_less_than_or_equal_to error. I have searched google on this, and this is not the only laptop I have this error on. I have taken the whole thing apart, pulled out the internal battery, left it out, pressed the power button for 15 seconds, then plug it all back in. However, I get stuck at windows recovery. So, I decided to do a factory restore to see if that will work. I am hoping that this is will be just a temporary thing, and I can get around it. Anyway, if this works, I will edit this, otherwise, I will leave it alone.
The main drivers that might be a cause for this particular file will be listed under the section of IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers as well as Storage Controllers inside of the Device Manager. So if you recently updated these drivers, roll back and see. If you did not, then we suggest you Update these drivers.
2] Download the drivers from the manufacturer’s website
You could also download the relevant drivers for your device from the manufacturer’s website directly.
For instance, if you have an SSD, the problem may be an old storage driver. You could use Intel Driver Update Utility or download the drivers from intel.com. AMD users may want to check out AMD Driver AutoDetect.
3] Run System File Checker
Right-click on the Start button and click on Command Prompt (Admin), type in the following command to run System File Checker and then hit Enter.
Restart your system after the scan is completed.
