I'm repeatedly getting a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error.
I've read lots of information on the internet about how various people have solved that problem on their machines. Problem is, none of the solutions I have found will work for me. That's because my machine basically won't allow me to do anything before the IRQL hits. I can boot up but then I can't get to Control Panel, Event Manager, or anything. As soon as I try to launch Control Manager, for example, that triggers the IRQL error. I can't even get an internet connection. So all these various solutions that everyone suggests just won't work in my case.
Thanks for your reply. However, I don't know how to reset the BIOS defaults. And I don't know how to reseat the RAM. Can you please provide me with instruations on how to do those two things. I'm not a computer novice by any means but I'm also not a guru. So I just need a little more detailed instructions. Also, on this machine I don't know how to interrupt the boot sequence to get to the BIOS screen. So if you could provide that also it would be helpful.
While the display is blank, press the f10 key to enter the BIOS settings menu.
Press the f9 key to reset the BIOS to the default settings.
Press the f10 key to save the changes and exit the BIOS settings menu.
