Windows 7: BSOD iaStor.sys & iaStorA.sys

BSOD iaStor.sys & iaStorA.sys

Have to post fast before computer crashes. More details to follow


Okay, I'm on another computer. I'm not super computer savvy, but after looking around all afternoon this forum was the place with the most resolved iaStor.sys errors. This error seems to occur after I save to the hard drive as well as randomly. Tried updating drivers where ever I found iaStor.sys using the device manager, but prompts indicated that everything was up to date. Didn't know what to do next. Oh and error switches between iaStor.sys and iaStorA.sys

Update your Intel Storage Technology driver here.

If you update it and you find nothing then I suggest running SeaTools as your hard drive might be failing.

Thanks for your help. I just looked on Intel's automatic driver identifier and it says that I have the most recent RAID Controller. I'll try running SeaTools.

Short generic scan passed for both of my drives. Can't complete the long generic scan because my computer crashes before the scan can finish.

Can you completely remove the Rapid Storage Technology driver?

I recommend running SeaTools again but in DOS.
Follow the instructions posted before.

Before changing drivers, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point Manually.

Based on the BSOD I know that the iaStorA.sys file is the culprit and I've updated to the latest Intel Rapid Storage drivers. Unfortunately that hasn't helped. I also cant even do disk checks or a system restore becuz the BSOD always interrupts them. The BSOD also seems to occur randomly. Sometimes...
