Bluescreen Ndis.sys Windows 7
» I just bought a new laptop hp pavilion dv6-2020ev with windows 7 premium home. Out of nowhere the computer shuts down and restarts showing the blue screen that says DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and the bottom it says ndis.sys and restart and goes through the process again, again and again....
I had a very similar problem on an Acer Ferrari One 200 running Windows 7. When the bundled subscription to McAfee AV/security ran out, I uninstalled it through Control Panel - Programs - Uninstall a program. Restarting Windows led to a BSOD including - DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL......ndis.sys
From Safe Mode, I did a System Restore to the settings of the previous day. I then tried the uninstall again but with exactly the same result. Checking in Computer - System Properties - Device Manager, I noted that there were two WiFi devices 'Atheros AR5B93......' and 'Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter'. I disabled the latter. I then did a System Restore as above, and found that WiFi worked fine with the Microsoft device disabled. Finally I carried out the uninstallation of McAfee but did NOT restart. I installed Microsoft Security Essentials and then restarted.No BSOD! I don't know which step (disabling the device or not restarting after uninstallation) solved the problem but everything works fine.
I would like to recommend an easier solution to blue screen of death(BSOD) caused by Ndis.sys or any sys file error, or by the viruses like Trojan:Win32/Camec.B, it is DLL Suite for a person who is not a computer savy.
Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the problems are fixed automatically, because of the built-in feature of Fix BSOD in the Dashboard menu. It is a perfect tool for a blue screen fix by Ndis.sys error.

- TOMOYUKI KOTANI replied on February 15, 2013: » This issue is mainly caused by the driver error which is installed for your LAN CARD / NIC (Network card)
The issue can be resolved by downloading and installing the latest drivers for the NIC from the manufacture's website.
Note: You might need to download the latest drivers in a different computer and install it in the computer where the issue is present, and you must boot to desktop with Safe Mode Option and install the latest drivers for the NIC.

Method 1: If its possible to check the blue screen and the name of the driver causing the problem then simply disable the driver from device manager.
Method 2: Windows XP and later OS comes with a great feature called 'System Restore'. Start the OS in safe mode and simply restore the system to its previous point.
It worked for me. Just check it out in your case.

- BILLY SIMMONS replied on February 16, 2013: » I am not able to start the computer in the SAFE mode as well.
This is the new problem now. i was facing the BSOD problem earlier....
Now , the OS selection screen comes as I have Win 7 and Win server 2003 as well. It says "Starting Windows" upon selecting windows 7 and then shows a black screen for a couple of seconds and returns to the OS selection screen again.
I am not able to log in to the SAFE mode as well. I am not able to do anything with my laptop now. Please suggest... It would be of great help if I can solve this.
