The 0X000000D1 DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL blue screen of death error is more common than we think. It usually occurs every 2-3 days unless the cause is resolved.
the causes behind the errorIt could be a faulty device driver, a problem with the BIOS, or an interfering system service.
Since we can normally access the system, we could boot the system normally more. Otherwise, we could boot the system in safe mode as suggested here.
Try the following preliminary steps:
1] Scan your system for viruses and malware, with Windows Defender or any reputable third-party antivirus.
2] Uninstall any recently installed suspicious software.
