BSOD Error : IRQL GT ZERO AT SYSTEM SERVICE

Thanks for the previous help, I actually forgot to mention my previous problem was solved by doing clean installation of my Windows. Happen to be it was bad sector something. So I been using my current PC for quite some times without facing any problems. Until just now.

I was starting up my PC as usual to check my emails and copying documents to my flash drive and while I got it up, loading screen, user screen load up, and waiting for my PC to actually finish loading all application so I can continue using the PC without delaying (a bit troublesome to me because too much application during system startup) but here, beyond ordinary suddenly my PC producing graphic artifacts that resemble like a GPU overheating and then the artifacts gone. Right after that, BSOD appear with this error :

IRQL GT ZERO AT SYSTEM SERVICE

I'm not sure what went wrong so I just power reset my PC and collect my .dmp file through safe mode and here I am, posting the problem to the site. Any idea what went wrong ? Below here is my crash dump file and I provided DxDiag info just in case.

Any help and idea about it would be great.

Hi,

Results verified by WinDBG, DumpCHK, and BlueScreenView.

The Bug_Check was 4A CAUSE ntkrnlmp.exe which is a Windows component which
means something else drove it into Fault.

BugCheck 4A, {76e817ba, 2, 0, fffff8800c684c60}
Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt!KiSystemServiceExit+245 )
IMAGE_NAME:  ntkrnlmp.exe
FAILURE_BUCKET_ID:  X64_RAISED_IRQL_FAULT_msnmsgr.exe_nt!KiSystemServiceExit+245
BUCKET_ID:  X64_RAISED_IRQL_FAULT_msnmsgr.exe_nt!KiSystemServiceExit+245

1. Check with MSI Support, their on-line documentation and drivers, and ask in their forums
about any known issues. Update the BIOS, low level chipset drivers, and the major on-board
and separate device drivers. Run DriverView - set VIEW to Hide Microsoft drivers -update
those without Dump in their name (see driver update methods in the next message).

BiosVersion = V1.0
BiosReleaseDate = 01/20/2009 <-- check for updates to BIOS, low level chipset drivers, and
the major on-board and separate device drivers.
SystemManufacturer = MSI
SystemProductName = MS-7592
BaseBoardManufacturer = MSI
BaseBoardProduct = G41M4 (MS-7592)
BaseBoardVersion = 1.0

Many BlueScreens are caused by old or corrupted drivers, especially video drivers however
there are other causes.

You can do these in Safe Mode if needed or from Command Prompt from Vista DVD or

Hi,

If you need to check for malware here are my recommendations - these will allow you to do
a thorough check and removal without ending up with a load of spyware programs running
resident which can cause as many issues as the malware and maybe harder to detect as
the cause.

No one program can be relied upon to detect and remove all malware. Added that often easy
to detect malware is often accompanied by a much harder to detect and remove payload. So
its better to be overly thorough now than to pay the high price later. Check with these to an
extreme overkill point and then run the cleanup only when you are very sure the system is clean.

These can be done in Safe Mode - repeatedly tap F8 as you boot however you should also run 
them in regular Windows when you can.

TDSSKiller.exe. - Download to the Desktop - then go to it and Right Click on it - RUN AS ADMIN
it will show any infections in the report after running - if it will not run change the name from
tdsskiller.exe to tdsskiller.com. Whether it finds anything or not does not mean you should not
check with the other methods below.
http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/solutions?qid=208280684

Download malwarebytes and scan with it, run MRT, and use the on-line scanners and other methods.

Download - SAVE - go to where you put it - Right Click on it - RUN AS ADMIN
