    Recently I have been experiencing an abundance of blue screens relating to ndis.sys and irq not equal message. The BOSD just appears whenever. I don't have to be doing anything specific for it to appear. I don't know what exactly what the problem is or how to repair it without formatting. I do not want to format. I have tried restoring to previous hard drive states with no success at repairing the problem. Upon doing a search of ndis.sys, on google, I discovered that several people have this exact problem with Zone Alarm. I don't have ZA installed, so that eliminates that possiblity. Then I found this site. I don't know if will exactly help find the problem or what. Has anyone ever experienced this problem? If so how did you fix it, without formatting?

    The irq error could be a bad driver. It is fixable.......you just have to find the culprit & replace it.

    According to the bluescreen, it is the ndis.sys file that is causing the problems. I'm trying to figure out why and how to fix it.

    It looks like the recommended fix for that error is to unistall all your networking componets, reboot, and then reinstall them.
