Windows 7: iaStor.sys BSOD

iaStor.sys BSOD

I've been getting repeated BSODs related to iaStor recently. So far I have downloaded Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyWare, and TDSSKiller and none of them have turned up any malware, so a rootkit can presumably be ruled out. I did the scans both in and out of safe mode. I've also reinstalled the driver software and I'm still getting the BSOD. I've rooted through every iaStor BSOD related thread I could find on this forum and nothing I've tried has eliminated the problem.

Also, I don't seem to be able to attach files to my post. The attachment manager won't load.

Hey FrostWyrmWraith and welcome to SF,

Firstly can you reconfigure windows to collect the correct info
You want "Mini-Dumps"

Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Also here are the instructions for posting:

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Also can you please fill out your specs as this will be most helpful.

Cheers

Dave

Yes, I saw that. And my computer is already collecting the dumps.

The problem was that when I made the thread the attachment manager refused to open, as I stated. It seems to be working now, so it's attached to this post.

run device manager. Open branch IDE ATA-ATAPI-controllers. What is listed there? right click->upgrade driver->on computer->pick from list->put checkmark at compatible devices. Select the Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA controller. Press next a few times.

You have to reboot a few times but it tells you to. Check if drive letters and drive letters of dvd drive afterwards are still correct.

System specs are up. As I stated in my first post, I knew what was causing it and already updated my drivers. It didn't work.

The storage drivers. I did it through the site manually and attempted an update from the device manager just in case as well.

Try the Dell support for your model, some laptop drivers are specially made/written. also see if there is a BIOS update.
