BSOD on my Vector Pro 17

edited September 2022 in Prebuilt PCs and Laptops

I have a Vector Pro 17 with the following specs:

Ryzen 9 5900HX

RTX 3080 mobile

Two 1 TB SSD in RAID 0

64 GB of ram

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

During backups of certain files on my C: drive, I get a Blue Screen of Death with the following Stop Code: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. What failed: rcraid.sys

I am thinking about changing 1st NVMe to a 2 TB one, but I would need to reinstall Windows. I would no longer be using RAID. Should I bring the laptop in to my local MicroCenter?

    How frequent is this? is it reproduceable during a backup?

    You should bring it in for warranty service as this would be a failure. If you want to replace the drive with a 2TB you can. You can run a single drive with the storage controller in RAID, it doesn't need to be part of an array.

    If you're replacing the drive, afterwards you can switch over to AHCI in the BIOS. Do not change this until everything is backed up.
