IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Error Windows 10

Sponsored Links

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (IRQL) Windows 10 or error code 0x0000000A appear when the driver accessed paged memory at an invalid address. This error like memory-related error if a system process or a driver without proper access rights.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL Windows 10 error may be caused by corrupt system files, incompatible device drivers, faulty hardware items, incorrect software installation, and a downgraded Windows installation. Check bellow:

  1. If parameter 1 is less than 0x1000, then this is likely a NULL pointer dereference.
  2. If !pool reports that parameter 1 is Paged pool, then the IRQL is too high to access this data. Run at a lower IRQL or allocate the data in NonPagedPool.
  3. If parameter 3 indicates that this was an attempt to execute pageable code, then the IRQL is too high to call this function. Run at a lower IRQL or do not mark the code as pageable.
  4. Otherwise, this may be a bad pointer, possibly caused by use-after-free or bit-flipping. Investigate the validity of parameter 1 with !pte, !address, and ln (List Nearest Symbols).
