BSOD's and bad startups

Really tired and stressed from this computer.

I feel it is nearly just time to take it to my local computer shop and get them to deal with it, Wipe, Fix - Whatever it takes.

I have tried, System Restore, Chkdsk's and Repairs.

irql_not_less_or_equal is the main BSOD showing up now.

Also my startups take forever, No not loading times - The fact that it just doesn't startup.

I get to the first screen and it either freezes or restarts itself or the second screen where all the writing goes really fast down, It just blinks at the top left hand corner.

If i end up getting a reply i appreciate if all this is looked into because it is as much info as i can give, Nothing else has been aware to me.

Cheers again.

Welcome to the forums, Jakee. : )

Your dumps point to problems in memory management (with lots of references to ntfs) and ntfs file system.

1. Check the hard disk for errors:

chkdks /r /f

2. Update:

Thankyou for the reply cybercore, As i will do what you say i have one question; Any chance that it could be hardware related? Cheers

Edit: I've updated my drivers except the Atheros one I have no idea which driver to download, How can I found out what driver number I need to download for it?

1. Yes, it can be hardware related, check both hdd and ram
2. Driver for Atheros CB42/CB43/MB42/MB43 Network Adapter
3. If more bsod's, attach them

I will be running the Memtest when I go to bed and how would i go about checking the hdd and ram?

Also it says that: Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date: ATHEROS AR5005GS Wireless Network Adapter

And when i search anywhere for CB42/CB43/MB42/MB43 it just comes up with other peoples threads with BSODS but when i search the AR5005GS it comes up with a driver website but no WIN7 just Xp/Vista and the dates on those drivers are older then the one i have.

I still think personally it is this driver that is causing it though but it's all so strange to me.

Any more BSOD's and i will post. Thankyou.

Update from manufacturer's sites of the hardware and never use Windows Update or Device Manager to get drivers.
