[SOLVED] IRQL BSOD Issues

I've been suffering from IRQL NOT LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO beginning last Friday.

The BSOD would result in boot loops of BSOD, with a variety of other error messages. I would be unable to boot into safe mode or recovery mode. I was only able to get into BIOS. As a side note, sometimes it would let me boot to windows. It would then promptly crash within a few minutes or, if I was lucky, hours.

I started troubleshooting on my own to figure out the issue. One of the first things I did was run memtest86 on my RAM, I've run my ram indiviudally, as well as dual channel. One thing I noticed was that the error messages were pretty inconsistent. I was only able to run each for 4 passes because of the version of memtest I have, but in some cases I would get no errors, and in others I would get plenty. So, one of the first things I did was replace the RAM. I got brand new ram and memtest picked up errors on the new sticks as well. I also kept getting the same blue screens. Given that I think its highly unlikely to be sent two brand new sticks that are faulty, I moved onto checking other elements.

I then began checking drivers, and uninstalling any new programs. The only updates I recall installing were a windows update. Nevertheless, I reinstalled drivers, flashed bios, and ran driver verifier. I did get a BSOD from driver verifier, but at the time I was unable to boot past windows, so I didn't get a chance to do anything with it.

I also scanned all of my drives using sfc /scannow, as well as dism restore health. Initially, there were errors found using sfc, but aside from the first time, I found no other errors. DISM also didn't report anything was wrong. In addition, I still got blue screens with all of my drives unplugged, and only a windows bootable usb plugged in. Even though I didn't thing my drives were the issue, I reinstalled Windows. This made me believe that it was not a driver error, but a hardware error.

At this point I figured it had to be a hardware issue. Also, at this point, I was three days in and the BSOD errors kept getting worse. The amount of times I could get into windows decreased, from sometimes being able to boot, to not at all. The blue screens themselves sometimes wouldn't even report errors codes, just a frowny face. I went out and bought a new motherboard, new psu, and new cpu. I went through switching out various parts beginning with the psu. New psu didn't change anything. Motherboard didn't change anything either.

However, a new CPU fixed my issue entirely, or so I thought. I had all new hardware in my PC before trying the new CPU. Once installed, it booted immediately. From that point, I worked backward, putting my old hardware back in and booting. Everything went smoothly and now the only new hardware I have in my PC is the CPU. I never saw another BSOD or issue up until now. I was able to boot back up immediately however. I'm just hoping the issues don't continue to get worse like before.

I'm now really unsure what the issue is here. Maybe its a combination of hardware components? Motherboard and CPU? Or maybe hardware and driver issues? I'm going to run Driver Verifier and see if I can get a memory dump from it, since I as unable to boot last time.

It's been a long week and I would appreciate any help.

Below I have my PC specs, as well as the new hardware I purchased. In addition, I have a minidump from the most recent BSOD.

Old Hardware:
CPU: i7-9700k - 3 months old
Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-H - 3 months old
GPU: EVGA Geforce GTX 1080 SC Gaming
PSU: Corsair CX600 - ?? years old
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 3000 mHz - CMU16GX4M2C3000C15R - 1.5 years old
Drives: Samsung 850 Evo 250 GB - almost 2 yrs, Samsung 860 Evo 1TB - 3 months old

New Hardware:
CPU: i7-9700k
Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Plus
PSU: Corsair CX650M
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000 mHz - CMK16GX4M2B3000C15

Dump:
I'm not entirely sure how to understand dump files. The IMAGE_NAME towards the bottom of the dmp file says memory corruption. So, does that mean my old memory is corrupted? Also, the process that caused it was chrome.exe?

Also, if I break any rules, I'm sorry. I looked over them and don't think I am, but this is my first time posting on any sort of forum like this.

The vmulti.sys driver is from Shenzhen Huion Animation Technology Co.,TLD . It was the driver for a small drawing tablet I had. I've since uninstalled it and haven't had any blue screens.

I've gone ahead and run memtest86 on all the RAM sticks and none of the have shown errors. I ran the old ram by itself, as well as the new ram. I only tested dual channel however.

I also continued running Prime95. The first time I ran it, I got an error within 15 minutes. The next time I ran it, my computer abruptly shut down about an hour in, but did not blue screen. I was doing other stuff in the background at the time, so I'm not sure if it was related to Prime95, but I assume it was. The next time I ran it, I went for 8hrs without an error. I'm going to sleep now, but Prime95 has been running for around 7hrs with no error.

I haven't had any more blue screens, so I believe my issues might be solved. But I also haven't gotten a chance to use my computer like I normally do, so I guess we will see.

So, I managed to run driver verifier. Got a DRIVER VERIFIER IOMANAGER VIOLATION (wdf01000.sys). Rebooted and opened the dump files.

Found a similar issue: https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/4oleji View: https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/4oleji/driver_verifier_iomanager_violation_wdf01000sys/
.

Apparently the issue was related to a driver (vmulti) from a drawing tablet that I had however many months or years ago. I just decided to uninstall it since I don't use it anymore.

If the issue is fixed, I'm wondering if this was the issue all along. To me, it seems very unlikely that a driver like the one I uninstalled would call for me to replace my CPU. Maybe it was just a combination of a variety of different issues?

I'll keep this post updated if I suffer from any more issues.

a driver for a tablet is unlikely to be the cause of boot loops, and BSOD in safe mode, so it is possible replacing CPU was also needed. CPU is where memory controller is, so have you tried testing the 1st ram sticks again on PC as if the errors were random, it may be the CPU was the cause.

Did you run Intel Processor Diagnostic Tool at any stage? Prime95?

Did you upload minidump showing the driver verifer BSOD?

I wasn't able to run any sort of CPU diagnostic tool previously because of the constant blue screening. I'm going to test the ram again overnight and then test the CPU. Is Prime95 preferred? Or should I run both?

Here is the dump from the driver verifier BSOD.

I was unable to test the first CPU with Prime95 or IPDT, because by the time I even considered running any CPU diagnostic tool, I was already unable to boot whatsoever.

I did go ahead and run both on the current CPU because I figured why not. IPDT passed. I ran the Prime95 torture test, and worker #4 has failed 14 min in. I read around a bit, and it could possibly be bad/mixed ram? I have both sets of sticks in right now, which I'm assuming might be the problem. I only put them both in because they run at the same voltage and timings. Should I run Prime95 again which only one set in at a time before moving to memtest?

Hi, I ran the dump files through the debugger and got the following information: https://pste.eu/p/2tkC.html

You have the latest BIOS already installed.

On the 2nd dump, it appears as if vmulti.sys crashed. I've seen 2 descriptions for this file. One place says it's a Mirosoft HID driver (mouse driver), another says it's a driver from Shenzhen Huion Animation Technology Co.,TLD. https://www.freefixer.com/library/file/vmulti.sys-154551/ I don't know which one is correct.

This information can be used by others to help you. I can't help you with this. Someone else will post with more information. Please wait for additional answers. Good luck.

The vmulti.sys driver is from Shenzhen Huion Animation Technology Co.,TLD . It was the driver for a small drawing tablet I had. I've since uninstalled it and haven't had any blue screens.

I've gone ahead and run memtest86 on all the RAM sticks and none of the have shown errors. I ran the old ram by itself, as well as the new ram. I only tested dual channel however.

I also continued running Prime95. The first time I ran it, I got an error within 15 minutes. The next time I ran it, my computer abruptly shut down about an hour in, but did not blue screen. I was doing other stuff in the background at the time, so I'm not sure if it was related to Prime95, but I assume it was. The next time I ran it, I went for 8hrs without an error. I'm going to sleep now, but Prime95 has been running for around 7hrs with no error.

I haven't had any more blue screens, so I believe my issues might be solved. But I also haven't gotten a chance to use my computer like I normally do, so I guess we will see.

The stress.txt folder only gives general background info and faq about stress testing. I went ahead and read it. There is a results.txt, but it just shows the logs of each worker.

Going on 15 hours and it still hasn't gotten an error.
