I have an Acer laptop with Widows 7 running on it! (Legally! :D ) and every second time I boot up my computer it BSOD-s on me!!! What can i do? The error is called: IRQL_not_less_or_equal

Basically, the way to troubleshoot this is to unplug all non-essential devices, then plug them in one at a time, with a long gap between adding each device, using your computer the whole while. Eventually one will cause the BSoD. Then you know that it is either a corrupt driver or damaged device that is causing the BSOD, and you can consider re-installing that driver.
If all else fails, a clean install of windows will usually fix the problem.

Technically, this error condition means that a kernel-mode process or driver tried to access a memory location to which it did not have permission, or at a kernel Interrupt ReQuest Level (IRQL) that was too high. (A kernel-mode process can access only other processes that have an IRQL lower than, or equal to, its own.)
