Every time I get this error on my Dell E6400, I find out shortly after that another file got messed up.
This error is difficult to ignore, and I don't like your answer. I've already installed the latest drivers Dell told me to, the error continues to generate randomly.
We have the same issue and this problem occurs with the new hardware E6400, E4300 and Optiplex 960.
The Event Viewer returns the message:
Event ID 9, Source: iastor
The device, \Device\Ide\iaStor0, did not respond within the timeout period
Troubleshooting Steps Taken:
Updated the latest version AHCI drivers as per Dell website and still issue persists
Installed Intel Storage Matrix Manager and still issue persists
Updated Hard Disk (Model: ST9160411ASG) firmware and still issue persists
Created registry entry as per KB303013 but still issue persists
Updated latest BIOS version as well which are available on Dell website for the above mentioned machine models.
Could some one check the issue please
i have the same problem here. I have two E6400 with the error "Event ID 9, Source: iastor"
and four systems without the error, i figured out the Intel drivers are diffferent version, the two has 18.104.22.1687 and the four has 22.214.171.1241, i downgrade one system to 126.96.36.1991 and get no errors at the moment...
You can find the older driver here:
I have a couple of e6400 systems here that are getting the same error. I have the 1007 driver. When this error occurs sometimes the cd/dvd drive disappears from the system and it has to be rebooted before they show up again.Also files seem like they are getting corrupted, I am getting some .dll errors after this has occurred.
Looking for some support on this issue from DELL
