Windows 10 crash IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL using Hyper-V And WiFi

On my HP Windows 10 Laptop I was using Hyper-V and WiFi and the host Windows 10 PC was crashing with:-

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

The Windows 10 Laptop has been find so it seemed to be something to do with Hyper-V.  Looking online it seemed related to either to Memory (built-in memory on this laptop so unlikely) or driver issues (more likely).  

I guessed it might be the WiFi driver which was an Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160.  So I updated the driver and now no more crashes, phew.

To do this fix.

  • Open Control Panel
  • Security and Maintenance
  • Administrative Tools
  • Computer Management
  • Open "System Tools" and select "Device Manager"
  • Open "Network Adapters"
  • Select the Wireless adapter, in my case "Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC3160"
  • Right click "Properties"
  • Click "Driver" tab
  • Click "Update Driver"
  • Click "Search automatically for updated driver software" and let it download a new driver if it finds one
  • Restart and all should be well
