    KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED(iaStorA.sys) BSOD


    hey everyone,

    I happen to get this BSOD after trying to access certain folders in my data drive. (D: Drive)
    I ran CheckDisk because I found it was taking a very long time to access these files. I ran it and it corrected the errors. All my other hard drives had no errors.
    Now i'm getting this KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED(iaStorA.sys) blue screen of death and it has happened twice.

    FYI
    Bios up to date, every driver is up to date, very windows update is on it. I am using an SSD as my C: drive and I only strictly use it for Windows 8, no other data besides that.

    If any more information needed, let me know. Thanks in advance

    File is attached...

    iaStorA.sys is part of the Intel matrix storage manager driver file and might be corrupted. I suggest to download this package for your mother board and re-install it.

    thanks for the reply, but my motherboard does not have Intel Matrix Storage Manager. I checked and I use the Intel Rapid Storage Technology. I keep looking for updates for every driver and program I have. Right now, I have no issues accessing the specific hard drive interestingly enough. I'll post back if anyone else has anymore ideas or if new problems arise

    Maybe I confuse you about the terminology. the Intel Rapid Storage Technology is part of the Intel Matrix Storage Manager. Your version of iaStorA dated 09/01/2012. The latest version is dated 12/03/2012

    Thank you, I haven't had a BSOD today as everything seemed to have worked smoothly no problem. I updated the driver and hopefully I won't have this issue again. Thanks again for your help!
