RAID5 & NVSTOR64 HELP!
[b]Hey guys!

I need some help. I have a Nvidia 780i Motherboard with a raid 5 array i use as a storage/backup drive (NOT my OS drive). Lately I have seen warnings in the system event viewer that i do not understand. I have also been having some audio skipping issues while watching movies stored on this array. I think it is all related. Here are the errors:[/b]

[b]I get about 50-80 of these warnings for about 2-3 minutes at a time.


I find that it happens most when my norton ghost back up starts its nightly back up and tries to write to the array. But it also happens throughout the day randomly it seems.


Then this morning i got this Error from Norton Ghost that i have not gotten before:

[b]When i bring up the storage array in the Nvidia control panel it shows as healthy. But to me this sounds like either a driver conflict or a hard drive in the array with bad sectors? but if so, why does it show as a healthy array in nvidia and at start up.

Here are 2 other errors i get around the same time as the above errors and i think they may be related as well. Let me know if you can make sense of any of this.

I have exactly the same issue with NVSTORE64.sys, I am constantly getting the following error and am using the NVSTORE64.SYS v11.1.0.43 driver. Every 20 seconds I get a Event Log hit and the machines performance has been affected significantly by it.

Main board is a ASUS P-5ND with latest v1401 BIOS

8800GT and GTX295 both tested in the PC produce same NVSTORE64 error using the following video drivers.
- 266.58_desktop_win7_winvista_64bit_english_whql
- 285.62-desktop-win7-winvista-64bit-english-whql

Has anyone at NVidia figured this out yet as it seems lotsa of people have the same issue according to a quick Google search

OK, I have been having this issue for awhile and there does not seem to be an answer. I have an EVGA 750i SLI FTW. I upgraded my cpu and gfx card recently and started having the freezing issues. I like all of you checked and found NVSTOR64 in the event viewer. No clue what it meant. I called EVGA support they had no clue. I checked Nvidia forums and noone knows. So I decided to try and tackle it myself. Here are my results.

I have two hard drives. My operating system runs off of a 75g WD Raptor. The NVSTOR64 message was not pointing to this disk so I did not want to reformat my operating system.

My second hard drive is 500gig seagate something, maybe a barracuda if that helps. It's probably 6 months old and I refused to believe it was dying on me already. It is possible but I was in denial.

I run pretty much everything off this second disk. My games(WoW, BF3,SWTOR) all my applications and media. It seemed to freeze for 30 seconds and come back when I put some heavy loads on the disk. I saw the message more and more. I started a download while playing a game and it just started locking up on me like crazy. when i kept it to a minimum it didnt happen as much but it did happen enough. The event viewer kept spamming the nvstor64 messages still.

So the first thing I tried was power down and change the SATA plug for the second drive I was having the issue with. I originally had both drives on a shared set of sata's. I moved it up to another pair and booted.

No more NVSTOR64 messages. The computer was a little more responsive as well so I put some added stress to the disk to see if I could get it to bug out again.m I started a download, ran a game and played an HD movie from my disk and had no issues at all. The message is gone for now but I will monitor and see if it comes back. If I had to guess I would think it was due to a bad SATA port or the driver went bad.

Hope this helps some of you.

I found what was creating the problem for me.

ConvertXtoDVD is a dvd conversion program and the driver that runs it has conflicts with the nvidia drivers for some reason. Even when the program is not running, but installed, i had all the above troubles. After many many back up reloads and troubleshooting, i have found that the problem is no more as long as i do not install that program. Not sure if anyone else having this problem has this program installed, but if you dont, you many have another video conversion driver thats causing the conflicts.

Hope this helps. I know how frustrating this problem was.
