It could be as simple as drivers if your audio is freezing. Weirdly, (it was with mine), it might be your graphics drivers. Check your audio and graphics drivers are the most up to date before anything else.

"Driver IRQL not less or equal" has been an issue with some nVidia drivers; if you're using an nVidia card that would be the first thing I'd look at. But any driver could cause it - the error is telling you that a driver is trying to access something it can't.

The culprit is most likely the last driver you installed before the errors began.

event viewer gives me

The AODDriver4.1 service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.
So I'm thinking yeah, did a clean reinstall of all my display drivers... five minutes after restarting, same thing, same message, same event viewr bug.

This AODDriver4.1 seems to be an issue.

AODDriver4.1 is AMD's overclocking utility (for its processors, not its graphics cards).

Doing a bit of google searching found this thread which mentions:

i fixed it myself ....

Go in the devices manager , view , show hidden device

you should see two AODDriver item , delete the one with with a yellow exclamation mark if present.

don't reboot yet ...

go and download the Microsoft autorun tool

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s...rnals/bb963902

run the program and select the '' everything'' tab , you should see in the list autorunEntry the AODDriver line in error with no file path. delete it.

now reboot and the Error is gone in the event manager. I have only one item in my device manager : AODDriver4.1 with no errors
