The 0x00000009 or IRQL_NOT_GREATER_OR_EQUAL error is a relatively rare one. This error typically occurs when a kernel-mode process or driver attempts to access a memory location to which it does not have permission, or at a process IRQL that was too high.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your System and Drivers: Always ensure that your operating system and all your drivers are up-to-date. Windows updates often include patches that fix potential bugs, and outdated drivers can cause issues.
  2. Uninstall Recent Software or Drivers: If you recently installed new software or drivers, they could be causing this issue. Try uninstalling them to see if that resolves the problem.
  3. Run a Full System Scan: Run a full system scan with your antivirus software to ensure your system is clean. Malicious software can cause a variety of problems on your system.
  4. Run System File Checker (SFC): This tool can fix potential issues with your system files. Open Command Prompt as an administrator and type “sfc /scannow” to run this tool.
  5. Use System Restore: If the problem started recently, you might be able to fix it by rolling back your system to a previous state when everything was working correctly.
  6. Check Hardware: While this error is typically software-related, hardware issues such as faulty or incompatible hardware can also cause this error.
  7. Contact Support: If none of the above steps resolves the issue, it may be best to contact Microsoft Support or a professional technician for further assistance.

Remember to back up your data before making any major changes to your system to prevent potential data loss.
