Still running MemTest... 7 passes is gonna be like 8 hours+

As far as those drivers... What will be the most efficient way to update them?

ADIHdAud.sys - SoundMAX Digital HD Audio Driver, OEM - none at Analog Devices, Inc. |*Converters Amplifiers Processors MEMS A/D Converters Analog to Digital Video Converter Temperature Sensors Analog Device RF Amplifiers Differential Amplifiers Digital Signal Processing Thermal Management D to A Converters Micro. There may not be an update for this driver. You can try; you have to upgrade your sound card.

Alpham264.sys - Ideazon ZBoard downloads - SteelSeries. Update the driver or upgrade the hardware.

Alpham164.sys - Ideazon ZBoard downloads - SteelSeries. Update the driver or upgrade the hardware.

cpuz_x64.sys - CPU-Z Testing Utility CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting. Update the software or uninstall it.

cpuz132_x64.sys - CPU-Z Testing Utility CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting. Update the software or uninstall it.

dsNcAdpt.sys - Network Connect VPN software by Juniper NetworksCustomer Support Center - Juniper Networks Update the driver and/or software or uninstall the software.

iaStorV.sys - Intel Storage drivers
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Default.aspx. Update the driver.

For the time being, you can ignore these drivers:

amdxata.sys
GEARAspiWDM.sys
spldr.sys

We generally recommend going to the manufatcturers' websites and downloading and installing the drivers rather than using Windows Update or Device manger. For Windows drivers, obviously, use Windows Update. Hope this helps.

Ran memtest 21 Passes Overnight... ZERO Errors.

So when i get home in a couple of hours ill try to get some of the drivers up to date.

Those Z board drivers I know wont update, I've tried, but I can delete them I dont need them.

CPU Z I can delte

That VPN driver can be deleted, I have a laptop for work i can use.

IASTORV is for my SSD drive.

amdxata.sys though I think has been a known problem for some...
It runs the RAID i believe, but Im not certain that its needed because i think my RAID on my MB is the controller.

Good work. We can assume that your system files are in good shape. Use your computer normally while Driver Verifier is on. It will stress the drivers and when it finds a problem with one, it will trigger a crash. After 24 - 36 hours, if you have not gotten a crash, you can turn it off.

HELP

OH CRAP! I updated the IASTORV.sys by clicking update and now it wants to format my disk. This was my RAID with everything on it except my OS... what do I do its asking to format and I said no, now its waiting to restart...

Rolled back my driver and got my RAID back. It had changed to ACHI or whatever promise is.

Its kind of confusing because the Intel portion is my SSD which has the OS, but changing it to ACHI killed my raid which are standard drives and not the OS but my progs and add ons...

OK, let it restart. A RAID array - Windows 7 is mighty finicky about RAID. But I have not heard of IASTORV updating wanting to cause a format before.

Yes, for now. I will get some help with this as I have never used RAID. I'll put out a MayDay!
