    I have a WD 320Gb 3.5inch hard drive that was originally bought as an external drive in an enclosure. A few months ago, while booting, my computer would go through blue screens one after another if the external hard drive was switched on from the enclosure when the computer was started. I never really did anything about that, just left it off and turned it on when i needed it. Mind you, it and the computer still seemed to work fine.

    Now i have decided to keep it internally. So, as soon as i booted up after connecting up the same drive, i'm going through these exact same blue screens again. I'm not 100% sure if that is the cause but signs point to it.

    Here's the blue screen info:
    The error message is:
    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
    and the stop info is:
    STOP: 0x0000000A (0x000000B0, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x82250B04)

    and finally, here's the picture i took of the blue screen, a bit is cut of but i know it says "IRQL" on the left hand side.
    IMAG0080.

    I'm really not sure what the problem is, any help or information would be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello and welcome to the forums.
    First make sure your machine is configured properly to facilitate the collection of .dmp files.
    Then:
    Please read the first post in this sticky thread here How to ask for help with a BSOD problem
    Do your best to accumulate the data required.
    Run the SF Diagnostic tool (download and right click the executable and choose run as administrator)
    Download and run CPUz. Use the Windows snipping tool to gather images from all tabs including all slots populated with memory under the SPD tab.
    Likewise RAMMon. Export the html report, put everything into a desktop folder that you've created for this purpose, zip it up and attach it to your next post (right click it and choose send to, compressed (zipped) folder.
    Additionally, if you haven’t already, please take some time and fill out your system specs in your forum profile area http://windows7forums.com/windows-7-support/72212-help-us-help-you-filling-your-system-specs.html#post235529 .
    Good luck
    Randy
