    Hi Russ,

    I don't see any crash dumps in the folder you attached. Is anything in C:\Windows\Minidump, or does C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP exist?

    If iaStorA.sys is indeed the problem, I see you are running version of the Intel Rapid Store driver (iaStorA.sys). The latest upstream release from Intel is and the last release Dell approved is I would suggest installing either of those versions.

    Thanks "Spectrum" for the reply. Before I attempt updates from either IBM or Dell please review the attached dump file (hope it works this time);

    The dump file appears to be corrupted, but that would be in line with a problem occurring in the storage subsystem, and iastorA.sys is the intel RAID driver. I would strongly suggest updating your Rapid Store driver, and if problems continue, running HDTune to check your hard drive's health.

    *** Memory manager detected 1 instance(s) of corrupted pagefilepage(s) while performing in-page operations.
    Memory Manager detected corruption of a pagefile page while performing an in-page operation.The data read from storage does not match the original data written.  This indicates the data was corrupted by the storage stack, or device hardware.

    Looking at the event logs there is more evidence of a problem in your storage subsystem.

    Namely, there are 55 occurrences of the driver having to reset the raid controller. Resets generally occur when the driver encounters an error and attempts to recover from it.

    After u installed another controller driver u should check your disks:

    Photoshop edit BSOD IAsTORa.SYS Diagnostic Test Photoshop edit BSOD IAsTORa.SYS

    Run HDTune to check health and scan for errors.

    Note   Note
    It may take some time, but look for signs of any errors or failure.

    You can also run a disk check using chkdsk. Refer to the tutorial for details of how to do this.

    Spectrum & BSODHunter,

    Many thanks for your assistance! So far I have changed the system dump collection from automatic to kernel. I ran the dump file collector again and the size of the file changed slightly but not sure there is any new relevant information. See file attached. I also updated the Intel Rapid Store Driver as requested to ver I will run HD Tune next...........

    0x0000001A:    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (8.06.2017 03:38:10) [Windows 10] 
    CAUSED BY:     memory_corruption    
    PROCESS:       MemCompression 
    Usual causes:  Device driver, memory, kernel

    I say disk or RAM memory. First step should be checking the disk. Second would be checking the RAM with memtest

    To be clear, since updating the Rapid Store driver, have you encountered anymore BSODs? I'd echo BSODHunter's advice, run HDTune anyways to rule out a failing disk.

    OK, I scanned the disc (C:) and it did find issues and did a repair and a restart. I re-ran the check disc and no errors were found. Should I still check the RAM with memtest?
