Hello civilwar142pa, and welcome to the forums. I will try to help you if I can. I need you to do a few things first. Please give me some details of exactly what happened, what you were doing, if there is any certain activity that you do that causes it. Any information you can provide to help me determine the problem.

Please run the BSOD Posting Instructions Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions and upload the zip file with your next post.

Please fill out your system specs in as much detail as possible with Manufacturer and Model number. Also include you PSU and CPU cooler. This may help you accomplish this:

Please fill out your System Specs

information   Information
Your System Specs will help us to help you, and doing it in this manner will make them available to all helpers in every post and keep us from hunting for them. We ask that you fill them out in as much detail as possible including Desktop or Laptop, Model number if it is an OEM computer and all components with the Manufacturer and Model number if possible.

If you will go to your last post and click the 'System Specs' in the bottom left of the post, you will find a link to update your system specs. Please fill those out in as much detail as possible, making sure to click save at the bottom of the page. If you would like to know what we would like, you can click 'My System Specs' at the bottom left of this post to see mine. If you do not know what your components are, this will help you accomplish this task. System Info - See Your System Specs

iaStor is Intel's Raid Driver (IRST) which also contains Intel's AHCI driver. Are you running Raid? which and how many hard drives do you have. I really need a lot more information to be able to advise you on what to do.

I didn't think anyone would reply to this or I would've put a lot more information in the post.

Anyway, I did everything you suggested already for different reasons. I started checking things out because after the most recent Windows updates, windows media player wouldn't open properly and my computer was intermittently restarting itself when I told it to sleep. On one of those occasions I got that BSOD. It hasn't happened before or since, and I checked to make sure the software was up to date for RAID, and it is.

Resetting my power options seemed to fix the original problem, but I ran the system file checker anyway in an elevated cmd prompt to make sure there weren't any other issues. It turns out it found corrupted files each time I ran it and couldn't fix them. I don't have any other issues besides media player at this point.

I'm wondering, just for curiosity, why you thought no one would answer. There are only a few of us who do this and a ton of posts in the BSOD section. We miss some occasionally, but we do try hard not to.

Please run the BSOD Posting instructions and upload the zip file here in your next post. But, from what I saw in the one dump file looked to be errors in your Hard drive. IRST is what ended up getting the most blame. But, there were references to I/O errors, Storage Port drivers, Filter Manager and all of those point to a Hard Drive problem, plus the sfc scan is saying you have corrupted files on the hard drive. Please add to your System Specs what hard drives you have and your PSU.

please tell me what hard drives you have and which ones you have in Raid. Raid is really not advisable for desktop systems. It is more of a Server function. The risks usually outweigh any gains you get. Just like in this case. You are going to have to break the Raid in order to test the hard drives, I am pretty sure.

Yeah, I've heard some interesting things about RAID. I didn't install it, though, it came that way and I never felt the need to change it. I only have the one hard drive with a recovery partition. Not surprisingly, I've replaced nearly everything else except for the hard drive in the time I've had this laptop, so I'm not shocked it's having some issues.

Thanks for taking the time to look at everything. I can upload the log files I have from the file checker if that's of any use to you.

wait. You can't be running Raid with 1 hard drive, it takes a minimum of 2 hard drives. Please go into BIOS and look for the sata controller and tell me what it is set to (IDE, AHCI or Raid) It will probably be hard to find. Most OEMs lock down their BIOS pretty tight and make everything hard to find.

Please do not run any hard drive cleaners. They, by default, delete all windows error reporting and dump files. If you are talking about the CBS files generated by the sfc /scannow, save them we may need them pretty soon. What I need is the BSOD Posting instructions Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions and upload them here.

I checked the BIOS and there's absolutely no information about the hard drive in there. I've just been assuming that since there is a RAID controller installed and running on the computer that that is running the HDD. RAID doesn't really 'need' two hard drives, that's just what it's actually for.

I've heard of manufacturers using it just so they can put RAID in their product name and sound cool. That's not surprising to me.

Is there a way to find that information if I were to pull the HDD and plug it in as an external HDD to another computer? I can do that easily.

Just because you have raid selected in the BIOS for the sata controller does not mean you are running raid. Raid stands for Redundant Array of Independent disks. If you only have one hard drive, you do not have independent disks.

Please go to Device Manager and post a screenshot Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums of device manager with IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers expanded.

I will have a look at your files and get back with you shortly.

I understand completely what RAID is for, but I have seen laptops ship using it with only one hard drive. It doesn't make sense, but it happens sometimes. My desktop shipped with it, too, but at least that made a little bit of sense since it came with one drive but could be expanded to two.

I don't have an IDE/ATAPI category in device manager at all.

civilwar142pa, the only dump file you have is the one I looked at last night.

Please uninstall Dameon tools. It is a known BSOD cause.
Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known cause of BSOD's.

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and follow these steps:
- Double click the executable to open it
- Click the button shown below



If the button it is grayed out, as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system, and you can just close the window.


After that, please open an elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

Please also run Seatools for DOS SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use

Please let me know the results. Have you had more than just the one BSOD? If you have had several please make sure your computer is configured for Small Memory Dumps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Can you tell me which version of Chrome you are using? Is it the BETA Version?
