BSOD driver irql_not_less_or_equal

Windows 10

Asked by: Tim80903


Recently I used a previously created system image to restore my computer to an earlier time--near when it was new. I went through the re-imaging process without issue. Drivers were updated, as were relevant programs and applications. Everything seemed to being going well until I started firing up some games. At random times during game play the system would crash with the error noted from the title of this post. Looking at the hardware conflicts and sharing information I noticed that the graphics were sharing irq16 with quite a few others listed below--though I do not know if it is relevent:

IRQ 16 Xeon(R) processor E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor PCI Express Root Port - 0151
IRQ 16 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M
IRQ 16 Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller - 1E2D
IRQ 16 Intel(R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family PCI Express Root Port 1 - 1E10
IRQ 16 Intel(R) Management Engine Interface 

I'm guessing it's a driver issue but I am unsure how to identify which one may be at fault. Here is a link to the minidump files since I do not know how to use the windbg program to gather additional information: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B3niMk3EbyjdN3JBSmN0SGJPMlk&usp=sharing

On another note, I have already run a memory diagnostic which found no issues. I would appreciate any recommendations or solutions towards how to amend this issue. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Two Bugchecks: Video TDR failure and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL in 5 of your crashes and the root cause is your Nvidia driver.

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys
Probably caused by : nvlddmkm.sys ( nvlddmkm+379963 )

Uninstall and please use Display Driver Uninstaller and install new drivers from Nvidia. Be sure the clean install box is checked and only install the Graphics driver and the PhysX driver.

Instructions take from here

You can get newer drivers either from manufacturer's website or Nvidia website.
