Troubleshooting Network Adapter Drivers
If you are experiencing a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD error related to the netio.sys file in Windows 7, here are some troubleshooting steps to help you fix the issue.
First, make sure your network adapter drivers are up to date. You can do this by going to the manufacturer’s website and downloading the latest drivers for your specific device.
Next, try disabling any third-party security software, such as Windows Defender, Zone Alarm, or Sophos. These programs can sometimes interfere with network connections and cause the blue screen error.
If updating your drivers and disabling security software doesn’t solve the problem, you can try running a command prompt scan to check for any system file corruption. Open the command prompt as an administrator and enter the command “sfc /scannow”. This will scan your system files and repair any issues it finds.
If none of these methods work, it may be worth considering a data recovery professional or contacting our support team for further assistance. Remember to provide any relevant details, such as the age of your computer and any recent software or hardware changes, to help us diagnose the problem more effectively.
