I've got an XP laptop with 2 drives configured as RAID 0. I'm getting a BSOD, caused by a specific driver file loading at Windows startup. If I delete the file or disable the service that loads it, no BSOD.
When this happens to a "normal" single-drive, non-RAID system, I can almost always fix it by repairing any file system errors and/or bad sectors. If I run Chkdsk on this drive (array), it does indicate that there are file system errors. However, Windows won't allow me to run Chkdsk /f or /r.
Actually, I've read that running Chkdsk /f or /r on a RAID will really screw things up. So it's probably a good thing that Windows won't allow me to do it.
In any case, how can I fix the NTFS file system errors on this system? Any advice or info will be much appreciated.
btw, as you can probably tell, I don't know much about RAIDs. ;-)
Yes, I've tried manually deleting the offending file and then uninstalling/re-installing the software. The BSOD always comes back. It's part of Kaspersky Anti-Virus; a file called "kl1.sys".
I'm starting to think that it may not be related to a file system error or bad sector after all. Googling "kl1.sys" and "BSOD" yields a lotta hits - but no real solutions. I'm gonna try a few things and I'll post my results here.
