It's been a while since I have this ("driver_irql_not_less_or_equal, ndis.sys or netio.sys") error and it occurs whenever I try to download a file with uTorrent and a few times while downloading with IDM, I hope that my PC is not dead.
Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 (Model 2093), Windows 8.1, everything is updated. I was having some WiFi issues which were solved by updating the WiFi driver, now it's giving me the BSOD "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (NETIO.SYS)" whenever I have uTorrent running.

MiniToolBox by Farbar Version: 23-01-2014 Ran by Jeff (administrator) on 26-02-2014 at 12:25:37 Running from "C:UsersJeffDownloads" Microsoft Windows 8.1 (X64) Boot Mode: Normal
The issue was caused by NetWorx, which I was using to monitor my bandwidth. Uninstalled and no more BSOD.
Today I purchased a Dell Inspiron 3000 series laptop, running Windows 8.1 Update 1 64-bit. However, whenever I shut down or reboot, I get a BSOD with the error, DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. Strangely, it only occurs when I am running on battery power, and after the up time of the machine is 7 minutes. If it's plugged into AC then I don't have any issues.
The minidump shows that the problem seems to be caused by NTOSKRNL.exe.
my laptop is acer v5 471G he keep restarting when i try to shutdown it..
even when i do sleep, my laptop is not go to sleep mode.. but it restarting..
it looks like every switch in power is all becoming reboot not only that, sometimes when i doing my work.. my laptop restarting by its own and after i log in and come to start menu.. a blue screen appears and this i attached the file
Recently i got my hands on a titanfall beta-key and to play i had to have a 64bit system. I asked my friend to support with the upgrade and everything went fine until my pc started randomly crashing with Memory_management as the most common message. i've had a few others too but mainly this one. I don't understand that my pc keeps crashing because before with my win7 32bit there was never no issue. I tried doing this debug tool thing but it says access denied and the cmd window that opens also says WIN32 so did something go wrong with the installation of win 8 or what?
I've been having some problems after installing some updates. For example, after installing these updates, every time I run uTorrent, I get a Blue Screen of Death, almost instantly. The problem is not with the software because I always used the same and nothing ever happened like that. The Blue Screens of Death were more frequent when the software was run. I researched a lot and saw a lot of people reported problems with the update KB2821895 and have not yet emerged any official response or fix patch from Microsoft. I was instructed to run in the command prompt, the following commands:
I've recently bought an XFX 7870 Tahiti and have been having loads of trouble getting the drivers installed in Windows 8 64bit. It shows up as Microsoft Basic Display Adaptor and when I try to install the Catalyst drivers I get the BSOD with the following error:
When I first got the card I spent a couple of weeks trouble shooting this. I tried various things such as driver refreshes, running memtest, reseating every component in the case. Basically everything I could find online!
Eventually I took an image of my HTPC which runs Windows 8 32bit and copied this image over to my new rig. The card then installed fine. The card works perfectly in 32bit with no issues what so ever. This is fine, other than the fact that I can only use 3GB of my 12GB of memory!
With the release of Windows 8.1 Preview I thought I'd have another bash at this but still get the same issues. On a completely fresh install of 64bit I get the same BSOD but the 32bit version is completely fine.
I have a Dell Inspiron 7537 running Windows 8 64bit. 8GB RAM, i7 processor. A little while ago it suddenly shut off. I went and checked the event viewer and got the info below. I think Toaster.exe is Dell's Backup and Recovery software, is that correct?
My web browsers only seem to work when Im downloading something with utorrent. If I stop utorrent from downloading, my browser(chrome) no longer loads a website or loads extremely slow. When Im downloading something on utorrent everything is fine, internet works great. I had to limit the download rate so it doesnt use all my speed though. Its kind of like my internet has to charge up by download on utorrent, then feeds my web browser speed and/or connectivity.
The problem seem to have started when I was using connectify to create a hotspot for my neighbor to use for internet off of me without him connecting directly to my wifi. I have uninstalled connectify, did a dns flush, and did a netsh int ip reset.
When downloading with uTorrent the general browsing is either very slow or impossible (page not responsive). I have implemented following tweaks but have not given it enough time so don't know if they work.
The tweaks were;
Lowering net.max_halfopen to 4 bt.connect_speed to 4 disabling DHT disabling UPnP lowering the global maximum number of connections to 200? 100? 50? (I have chosen 50) disabling UPnP and NAT-PMP lowering the upload slots to 4 limiting the upload limit to 100 kB/s enabling outgoing protocol encryption
I have set listening port to 6881 & have port forwarded this port
I have a fiber optic connection of 95 Mbps downloading and 60 Mbps uploading.
My computer started freezing while downloading large files in uTorrent, About 10 minutes after starting uTorrent the PC starts to be really really slow and 1 minute after it freezes, only restarted/shutdown solve the problem, I've been using uTorrent for years and never had this problem, I mean it happens when I download a 15GB movie, but two months ago I downloaded a 170GB TV series and no problems were with that.
So I thought maybe its a problem in the HDD (not in the space, I have aprox. 150GB free in C and 220GB in D), I don't really know what to do.
I manually installed windows updates yesterday. They seemed to have installed fine. I rebooted and went about my day...early evening i stepped away from my laptop for a few minute and came back to the lock screen. It had rebooted from a BSOD while I was away...I wasn't doing much on the computer at the time. Comodo dragon browser open playing a facebook game and winamp streaming some music...
I've been trying to update to Windows 8.1 but I keep having issues. I constantly have failing Windows Updates. I have tried a couple different things, renaming the SoftwareDistribution file to .old, Windows Repair, and full clean install of Windows 8. I for the life of me can't figure out what's going on.
Currently, I am unable to install the SF_Diagnostic tool for some reason. It's hung up on downloading the necessary files from Windows Features. I have a mini dump from Windows 8 attached and will try to update it with the SF_Diag tool if it ever installs.
Edit: had to manually enable .NET Framework in order to get the diagnostic tool to install. The mini dump is still the same regardless so I'll keep that there.
Recently I've experienced random BSOD's in Windows 8. Although my computer know-how is limited at best, I knew it was best to upgraded my pc in steps. The first week I installed a SSD (with a fresh install of Windows 8 on it) and ran without any problems. A week later I installed 16 gigs of (new) ram (with the SSD) and everything ran fine.
The problems started two weeks later. I haven't made any changes to my pc or driver upgrades since then. If I idle in windows everything works fine. The same is true when running Office or browsing the internet. BSOD's occur when:
- Playing games (modern or old), either after 5 minutes or after 3 hours (seems very random but frequent);
- When wathing a HD youtube movie (BSOD's when doing this seem very rare though);
I have had a long history of BSOD issues on this system, and have exhausted my patience in trying to fix it. I have done my own research to no avail, and have even utilized my warranty to get parts replaced. At this point in time I have a replaced motherboard and video card but the BSOD issues have actually increased in frequency.
For testing I have re-loaded Windows. Ran tests on the memory. Replaced the hard drive with an SSD. Updated drivers as best as I could based on the version of Windows and availability of drivers, and as mentioned I have even had the Motherboard and Video card replaced. The only hardware left to rule out is Power Supply and CPU.
