irql_not_less_or_equal - YouTube full video crashes Win10

2016-07-20, 20:20 PM

If I open a youtube video fullscreen in chrome on my external DP display, since last week I always get:


irql_not_less_or_equal in dxgmms1.sys BSOD. I then have to hold the power button down for a long time to get it to restart.


I have only just started having this error, and have installed nothing since not working and working, except windows did some updates a few days ago.


I have a W530 with the K2000M.


I have no idea what my bios or adapter driver is, but I did have to download the latest drivers from nVidia to get windows 10 to work when MS "upgraded" me from windows 8 without my permission about 4 months ago.


Windows finds no new updates.


Anyone else seen this issue, or can suggest how I update drivers etc?

Hi I have the same problem with W530. Did you find a solution?
