Randomly while using my computer, I will get a BSOD with stop code, irql_not_less_or_equal. Downloaded BlueScreenView and it said it was caused by ntoskrnl.exe. Then I checked my RAM by using MemTest86 and came back with 0 errors. I don't know what is causing this issue to happen. Could it still be faulty RAM?

Hello

NTOSKRNL errors could be due to any faulty hardware including HDD, SSD, or RAM. Sometime any incompatible driver could also be the culprit.

You can try updating all the device drivers, checking the hard drive with CHKDKS C:\ /R command, Running the SFC /SCANNOW Command, or if possible, borrowing a HDD from one of your friends and installing Windows on it.

Please let me know if any of these solutions fixed the issue.

Cheers!!
