Hope someone has an idea:

Received the message DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, for the second time in
less than a week; not sure why as I haven't installed any new hardward or
software, no new drivers or updates.

The STOP code that comes up is:

0x000000D1 (0x02c2fe64, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x7c90eb94)
I don't have any other info (date stamp, etc)

The strange thing was that it started after I would try to reboot from a
standby mode. Then the error would say "Beginning dump of physical memory";
what does that mean? Even did a virus scan just to be safe and came up clean.

Any suggestions? Thank you for any help you can provide.

Are you getting any Reports in Event Viewer?

Please check Event Viewer for Warning / Error Reports in the System and
Application logs for when the error occurs and post copies.

You can access Event Viewer by selecting Start, Administrative Tools, and
Event Viewer. When researching the meaning of the error, information
regarding Event ID, Source and Description are important.

Part of the Description of the error will include a link, which you should
double click for further information. You can copy using copy and paste.
Often the link will, however, say there is no further information.
(Please note the hyperlink above is for illustration purposes only)

A tip for posting copies of Error Reports! Run Event Viewer and double click
on the error you want to copy. In the window, which appears is a button
resembling two pages. Double click the button and close Event Viewer. Now
start your message (email) and do a paste into the body of the message. This
will paste the info from the Event Viewer Error Report complete with links
into the message. Make sure this is the first paste after exiting from Event

Are there any yellow question marks in Device Manager? Right click on
the My Computer icon on your Desktop and select Properties. Hardware,
Device Manager. If yes what is the Device Error code?

Try Start, Run, type "sigverif.exe" without quotes and hit OK. What drivers
are listed as unsigned? Disregard those which are not checked.


Hope this helps.
