    Driver Irql Not Less Or Equal

    Everything seems to work fine when trying to copy a VHS tape to a DVD, until I get the "blue screen of death" with the error message listed in the title of this thread. Any suggestions? My computer info is in the attached file. Thanks Rick DxDiag.txt

    Thank you both for your replies. This week is really killer for me with work and personal commitments so I can't spend a lot of time on this right now, but I will be able to devote more time on it this weekend. I'll let you know of my progress then, but again, I thank you for your help.

    The capture device is the one that's labeled "newest device". It's the "Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus" version. I'll now uninstall the driver update program and Crap Cleaner. Never knew Crap Cleaner was potentially bad, but with WinUtilities, I don't need it anyway.

    Thank you for your reply. It's much appreciated. Yup, it's an old computer. I'm using it because our recently purchased Dell has no input jacks for S-video or the older "audio/video in" and "audio/video out" connections. I really don't like the new computer because of that and because it runs Windows 8, which I absolutely hate with a passion and could rant about it hours, but I won't waste your time on that here. Please forgive me, by the way, because although it seems I know more about computers than most of my friends and family do, I'm a little confused by your reply. First, I googled "AMD/ATIi", which led me to this page: http://support.amd.com/en-us I clicked on the "Find your drivers" link and am stuck there because I don't understand the "Select your type of system that you have" question because I thought they were going to ask me what kind of computer and operating system I have. Next, yes, I do regular system maintenance. I have deleted most of the programs on this computer since I've installed them on the new computer, but I still use WinUtilities and Crap Cleaner on this computer on a regular basis, and defrag it once in a while. Drivers for my capture device - I'm sorry, but I don't understand the question. If by "capture device" you mean my DVD burner, I just installed one that I got from our IT guy at work and it seems to be ok. I've been searching for a free driver update program and have found plenty that will scan my computer and tell me that I have 15-18 devices that need an upgrade, but they all want money to upgrade them so I haven't done that yet, but if that is what I need to do to solve this problem, I will gladly pay their fee. My Device Manager tells me that I have a Philips DVD+-RW DVD 87014, if that helps. Again, I'm sorry for being so clueless, and if your reply is "Call Roxio, because you're way beyond my help", I totally understand. Thanks again Rick
