    Intel RST driver "iaStorA.sys" keeps on failing on wake up to BSOD

    tailsthelaxer

      Hi guys, ive been having a problem that has stumped me and most of the tech support places I go so any help would be awesome.

       

      So basically I had to replace my hard drive that failed recently and that went over fine, even got the same model of drive to use. A seagate hybrid drive that I guess is also AF (advanced format). So I went right ahead to install windows 8 back onto this computer of mine when I ran into my first problem of windows not being able to find my drive even though my bios said it was there. To fix this I downloaded my computers chipset and intel RST drivers to communicate to the hard drive and put it on my installation usb to use in the installation process. Trying to install windows again, I ran into the same problem but this time I loaded the intel drivers and it found my hard drive and installed windows without a hitch.

       

      Now everything seems to be going fine with this computer except for after it wakes up from sleep mode it goes to a BSOD saying that iastorA.sys has failed every time without a doubt.

       

      I am clueless on how to fix this problem and have researched it for days on end to no avail. I tried checking if the computer thinks if its in RAID which it cant even do with one hard drive port. I have tried many other things that arn't coming to mind right now because its late and I cant think. If any one can help me out that would be awesome.
