Recurring IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSODs on new PC despite processor replacement

Koko ! 0 Reputation points

I am experiencing recurring IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL blue screen of death (BSOD) errors on my new PC. After consulting LDLC, my i9 13900KF processor was replaced with an i9 13900K, which temporarily resolved the issue. However, the problem resurfaced a few months later, occurring randomly and especially when launching certain games. I'm seeking assistance in resolving this issue.

My current configuration includes:

  • Operating System: Windows 11 Professional 64-bit
  • Processor: Intel Core i9 13900K
  • Graphics Card: Nvidia RTX 4070Ti
  • Motherboard: ASUSTeK PRIME Z790-A WIFI (LGA1700)
  • Storage: 2x Samsung SSD 980 PRO with Heatsink 2TB (in RAID configuration)
  • RAM: 64.0 GB

Thank you for your help.

    This error is related to driver and hardware failures. Try starting your computer in safe mode to see if the problem persists in safe mode. Because safe mode only loads the most basic drivers, this can avoid this failure caused by problems with third-party drivers.

    If the blue screen of death error still occurs in safe mode, it is recommended to check for hardware problems, especially the memory and hard disk.
