    The driver being installed is not validated for this computer. Please obtain the appropriate driver from the computer manufacturer.  Setup will exit.

      Here is a link dump for my sys spec and my dmp. file, respectively:

      Heres a basic story:

       

      I got a BSOD because apparently one of my drivers (Title) is out of date. People in Microsoft said that iaStorA.sys Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver is the problem, which is evident from the dmp. file.

      I ran the Intel auto-update and downloaded of what I assume is the cure for cancer in my laptop. Instead of a cure, this pop-up appeared:

      Setup will exit.

       

      Basically, I need to install iaStorA.sys but I cant because of the above reason.

      Any ideas on how to fix this?
