about 5 hours ago, my computer had a BSOD with the error IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. After the restart, it gave the same error after 20 seconds of booting into Windows permanently. I then booted into automatic repair and went on to restore from a point. After the restore, my laptop got stuck in an automatic repair bootloop. I tried to do a reset but it says it can't find any admin accounts on my pc. Is there a way to fix this please ?.

  • @AhmedAshour that user can still boot into Windows, I can't and can't reset of because admin account is not being found – Dami Jan 30 at 13:03
  • @Dami IRQL BSODs are almost always driver related. Have you tried booting back into WinRE then choosing the option for Command Prompt? Once Windows' bootloader begins, hold down power button until system shuts off, then repeat once more, and once auto repair fails, choose Advanced - Troubleshooting - Command Prompt. Once at the terminal, try to restore again by issuing rstrui. If it fails, boot back into WinRE and issue the following at the terminal (where c:\ is the Windows partition, as WinRE may assign a different drive letter): sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows – JW0914 Jan 30 at 13:28
