Windows 10 BSOD: Stopcode - Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal

This is driving me nuts for weeks now. I followed a suggestion to prevent Windows from automatically restarting when this happens, so I get a chance to jot down this information on the BSOD:

Stopcode: Driver IRQL Not Less or Equal

What Failed: IaStoreA.sys

I've checked the C: drive for errors and it checked out fine. What else can I do?  Any suggestions?

I can flatten the drive and reinstall if necessary, but if this is caused by a Windows update, I'll start all over again.

Also, I notice this machine (Dell Precision T3600) has a habit of booting all by itself and I'm stuck on a black screen. Apparently this is a common problem right now, also.

Need some help, please.  Thanks!

Re: Windows 10 BSOD: Stopcode - Driver IRQL Not Less or Equa

I've been getting all sorts of BSOD screens and I've narrowed it down to the 1803 windows 10 update (maybe affecting you too):

  1. On bootup of my laptop it BSOD's before loading windows login screen NSYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTIO. Restarts
  2. BSOD at login screen could be same as above or some other error - too fast to capture. Restarts
  3. BSOD a few more times then get an option to repair, repair of startup does not repair anything, then go through BSOD's again and finally it gets in.

My Dell XPS13 9370 hasn't been tested by DELL to work on this version either see here!!! Hurry up DELL.
