The 0x0000000A or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error typically occurs when a Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accesses paged memory at an invalid Dispatch Level (IRQL). This error can be caused by both hardware and software issues.

How to fix:

  1. Update Your System and Drivers: Make sure 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 Windows updates often include patches that fix potential bugs, and outdated drivers can cause issues.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 this error started after you installed new software or drivers, they might be causing this issue. Try uninstalling them to see if that resolves the problem.
  3. Run a Full System Scan: Malicious software can cause a variety of problems on your system. Run a full system scan with your antivirus software to ensure your system is clean.
  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. Check Hardware: Faulty or incompatible hardware can cause this error. If you have recently installed new hardware, try removing it to see if that resolves the issue. You can also run a hardware diagnostic test to check if any of your hardware is malfunctioning.
  6. 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.
  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.
