Today at 415pm EST I turned my computer on and get the Blue Screen of Death. It was saying something about iaStor.sys and all that jazz. Lovely me here, I never had this problem so I just restarted the computer thinking it will go away. I get to my login screen, put the password in and it says Please Wait and about 10 seconds later I get the Blue Screen again. Now I am getting frustrated and trust me, I go fierce when I get frustrated haha. I get my Windows Recovery CD's out and start doing Recovery. I have 3 disks total: Disk 1, Driver CD and Disk 2.

HOLD STORY! Should of said this: I have a Asus G51vx gaming laptop. When this problem occured I had Windows 7 64bit. Now when I did restore, I am back to Vista 64bit.

BACK TO STORY! At around 8pm, I can get to the welcome screen, login and can see the desktop and all, for about 15 seconds, then BOOM! Blue Screen again... So now I was a little frustrated, now I am beyond extreme, ready to throw it out a window haha.

Here is what I need to know: I CANNOT get into Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking. I CAN however get into Safe Mode with Command Prompt for about 3 minutes before I get the Blue Screen.

Currently I am on the Splashtop OS that Asus had installed on the computer. It's a bit laggy but hey, I got Skype and my internet still. And of course if I switch to the OS I will surely get the BSOD again. From searching on Google and Yahoo! for hours, It looks like you can do something with the iaStor.sys file, like delete it or something. I don't know.

SO MAIN QUESTION IS: A way to delete iaStor.sys WITHOUT being in the computer and no Safe Mode AND what in the heck could I do!

lol, thanks for reading (:

Whatever you do, leave iaStor.sys file alone.
It's a crucial hard drive controller file.
I'll report this topic to malware people.
Be patient.

Did you try to do a Windows Startup Repair?

I have the same problem, with an Asus K52J series notebook.
I tried the strartup repair 100 times, but no result. I also tried a recovery, but no result.
The only difference is that sometimes (I don't know why) I can start my notebook in safe mode (but with no network, otherwise blue screen!!!).
Any help please?
Thanks
