BugCheck C2, {7, 109b, 70021, fffffa8007d95ee0}

*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for iaStor.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for iaStor.sys
GetPointerFromAddress: unable to read from fffff8000330c100
GetUlongFromAddress: unable to read from fffff8000330c1c0
Probably caused by : iaStor.sys ( iaStor+3fc66 )
Usual causes:  Device driver, Memory
This bugcheck indicates that a device driver has attempted to free the same pool allocation twice.

The pool page (non-paged pool) isn't corrupt which is good, the * points to the address of the allocation which was double freed. The pool tag is not documented within the pooltag.txt file, however, similar pool tags point to nVidia, I'm guessing it's associated with the nVidia Control Panel?

Your Intel Rapid Storage driver seems to be causing problems, please remove completely with these instructions:

  1. Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
  2. It will open the "computer management" window.
  3. Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
  4. Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
  5. Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
  6. Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
  7. Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.

thanks for the reply, x BlueRobot.

i can uninstall intel rapid storage, but I can't seem to locate "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" in my device manager. i'm not too great with computers, so i'm wondering if steps 4-6 would be for desktops. the blue screens are occurring on my hp envy notebook.
