    Default Blue Screen Driver irql problem and Green Screen when watching all media players

    I have two major problems here. First, every so often my computer will just shut off and go to a blue screen where it displays the message "Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal" I'm not sure what the cause of this is and have looked at many threads but nothing has helped me out. I have an AMD Athlon 64 3700, Windows XP (SP2), a GeForce 7800 GTX with ForceWare version 91.31. I have no idea what the problem could be, I have the latest forceware version, and it is still happening. Another problem is, ever since I installed the ForceWare version 91.31, whenever I open up a movie file or tv file with VLC player, the player just shows a green screen and I can only hear audio. I figured this had to be a problem with the new forceware version or my settings but I have no idea. Any help to either of these problems would be most appreciated. Thanks

    Its almost always a driver problem.
    Apart from the graphics driver what else have you changed recently?

    I'd try removing the forceware version you have and going back one and see if that helps. For startes....

    I will try removing the new forceware in a sec, but first, i have to say that before I installed the new ForceWare, I was having a problem where my computer would randomly restart without warning or message, but once I installed the new ForceWare, No longer did my computer do this, but instead now it shuts off and gives me the "Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal" message. So I think it is both a good and bad thing.

    After I uninstalled the ForceWare driver and restarted my computer, I can't get connected to the internet. What happened? Anyone know? I get onto the internet directly through a router in my house but when I plug the cable into the router instead of coming up with a green number, the number is orange, meaning that it doesn't really read it. What was the cause of this? why did the uninstalling of the nvidia graphics driver do this?

    Sounds like you had the problem before the new drivers

    have you checked to make sure your monitor is set to the primary display? video won't show on anything but primary.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Ok, its not the card then. MS will by default keep rebooting and not stop with the blue screen error. Sounds to me it was giving this error before but you couldn't see it obviously, now the Autom Restart has been turned off and you can see which stop error you have.

    So its some driver. You will have to troubleshoot if you have no idea which it is....start by updating your chipset drivers, and any other cards - sound card, NIC or whatever you have in their.

    I had a friend getting this on a new build. Ages later after heaps of troubleshooting she found it was when the mouse was plugged into 3 of the 4 onboard USB ports. Other devices were fine in any of them, a new mouse was fine in any of them. The old mouse was fine in only 1, the other 3 gave her IRQL......................

    Rather a bizarre one, but there you go....

    I got the internet back up and running, but I still am having the blue screen error. Right now I don't have any ForceWare video driver running at all but am still getting the error, so that's not the problem, and I'm still searching for what is. I'm going to update the software for my motherboard I think next to see if that's what's doing it. I also read somewhere that I could have faulty RAM. Is this true? I tried putting my two sticks of RAM in different slots but that didn't solve anything either.

    Its possible but unlikely with this particular error.
