I have a Asus Eee Pc 1005HAB. The operating system is Windows 7 32 bit.
I'm experiancing a blue screen of death with the technical details:
*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xc0000005, 0x8645cb40, 0xaa99674c, 0x00000000)
*** iastor.sys - Address 8645cb40 base at 8641b000 , Datestamp 4a287809
I have tried the following:
Sfc/scannow, Memory check, Startup Repair, Scanning for viruses using Microsoft Security Essentials in Safe Mode, System Restore multiple times each further back, Cheack Disk, and using Combofix.
I cannot try to update the windows settings, for the BSOD appears before anything can offically start.
I asked a friend for an opinion and he thinks it might be a boot up virus, or some problem with the hard drive (although we both think its not the hard drive for it can boot into safe mode).
I would like avoiding having to wipe it out, but if worse comes to worse I will do that if neccessary. So any help is appreciated!
