I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have two Seagate 7200 hard drives than are no longer recognized by the desktop or by my laptop via a usb/EDI/SATA adapter. These were my backup drives and have all my photos, itunes, and doc files. Rather than speed $1,000 to have the files extracted by a recovery firm I wondered if its possible to remove the storage media from one drive and install it in a new drive box. Say buy a $60 internal drive open it up and remove the disks, take the disks out of the non-working drive and install it in the new internal drive. Is that even possible? Would the circuitry on the new drive even recognize the replacement disks? Would the drives need to be the same GB? Inquiring minds want to know!

A:Can I rebuild a hard drive to recover data

I've heard of people buying the exact same drive (needs to be exact so the PCB is the same) and then swapping those out. I've never heard of people removing the platters and putting in a new drive - I think that would be highly risky if not impossible. Try to find a working drive with the same PCB on ebay, then swap the boards.

If I remember correctly all Northbridge functions were consolidated in the CPUs beginning with the Sandy Bridge line so you should be good to go there.

I have an ASUS M4A79XTD EVO board which had 2 drives setup in RAID1, I replaced one of the drives after a failure but can't seem to rebuild the RAID. The raid software shows one drive as RAID LD-1 and the other as a single drive, both drives are 320GB SATA drives from western digital. I can't seem to find a way of rebuilding the RAID.
If I delete the existing RAID and setup a new one will I lose all the data on the original RAID disc?

A:RAID 1 rebuild

yes. The raid should resync on the new mirror upon rebooting

Hi I recently performed a system re-build on my Dell Dimension It was my first time and to be honest I m not too great with computers I obviously re-installed windows XP the necessary drivers GPU driver etc Got to the stage where everything was looking good and the PC was faster but then trying to run counter-strike source and BBC iplayer was a complete fail CSS now barely functions it s very laggy and glitchy and the graphics are horrendous BBC iplayer is v intermittent i e plays well for a couple of seconds stops and then continues for a couple of seconds and so on I have downloaded the recommended driver for my GPU Radeon which was the same one I was using prior to the re-build and all rebuild problems system Graphics/video after the CSS settings are low etc Not too sure what to do now I guess it s worth mentioning that I could not find my old XP installation cd so used another family member s XP Pro edition which installed fine Is it possible that my GPU itself or the driver might not be compatible with XP Pro Just a guess I m pretty lost with it all Please please help many thanks nbsp

First you should of installed. All the drivers, is this a factory reset or new hard drive.

Make sure device manager has no red x.

Hey there everyone! I'm pretty new to this forum but i really need your help.

Earlier today i experience 2 different BSOD erros at different times, and for no apparent reason.

I'm not sure what the reason is for either of them since i just reformatted earlier today. I have the dump file for each of the BSODs. It is attached.

Could anyone possibly tell me what the problem could be? Thanks in advance

A:PC rebuild for graphics design

I think the most important component you need to look at is a good CPU. If you're on a budget, look at the Athlon II X4 620/630 Propus. Else, the Phenom II X4 955 BE maybe.

How much do you think your organization will be willing to spend on a new machine?

Noticed reference to Graphic card in manual! Does this MBO require a separate Graphics card to boot?? Made sure MBO not shorted to metal!

I am out of ideas!!!! Please help!!!!

So Hard Rebuild Help Drive I recently picked up a Hard Drive Rebuild Help data recovery job and I m having Hard Drive Rebuild Help a real hard time getting the rebuilt drive working I was wondering if anyone with a good deal of knowledge about hard drive internals and could help me out The original problem was the drive was not being detected and was making a clicking sound Since the drive is no longer covered under warranty I proceeded to run a few tests and it turned out that the drive was physically damaged One of the magnets on the end of the actuator arm had broken off and one platter surface was scratched a good deal It was not looking good So I proceeded to order a replacement drive an identical unit The drives are a slightly-older GB Hitachi Deskstar which is not very common I guess Since the drive came out of an External enclosure I ended up ordering another since I could not find the drive itself The drive came in the other day and when I took it apart it was the same drive so I was all set there So long story short I replaced the swivel magnets and actuator arm in the original drive since you cannot take out the platters w o removing these components When I powered up the rebuilt drive one of the magnets on the new actuator arm broke off again So I figured if I placed the scratched platter under the broken actuator tip it would work fine but it doesn t As the drive spins the arm moves back and forth but does not read or write it s not being detected either So I guess my real question is there any way to disable a single actuator tip or am I out of luck yet again At this point I m not willing to get another replacement drive because the internals are just too delicate to handle without special equipment magnifying glass Can I try the platters in another drive I have a bunch here that I m not using Any help with this would be greatly appreciated sorry for the long post Thanks nbsp

Hey could somebody look at my minidumps for me? I ran memtest over night with no errors, the crashes are all different I have reseated ram, removed one stick and tried in both slots then removed that stick and tried the other in both slots with the same results. nothing over clocked cleaned my case out reseated vid card and made sure all cables were snug I'm out of ideas short of buying new parts. I have no known goods to fall back on because this is my first pci-e rig. thanks

A:Random bsods, I upped minidumps and my belarc profile

I did not have time to sift through all your information... very complete! Thanks!
I did note, you are running XP SP3

Some of your Errors are summarized below... Suggestions at the bottom.


This is a very common bugcheck.
EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000005 - The instruction at "0x%08lx" referenced memory at "0x%08lx". The memory could not be "%s".

PROCESS_NAME: explorer.exe
IMAGE_NAME: win32k.sysClick to expand...


An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high. This is usually caused by drivers using improper addresses.
PROCESS_NAME: lotroclient.exe

The pool is already corrupt at the time of the current request. This may or may not be due to the caller. The internal pool links must be walked to figure out a possible cause of the problem, and then special pool applied to the suspect tags or the driver verifier to a suspect driver.
PROCESS_NAME: pidgin.exeClick to expand...

One of your faulting processes is lotroclient.exe - a game... resource intensive.
One of your faulting processes was an IM client.
One was sr.sys ... which is system restore.
Other pointers are not very helpful (yet).

You say that
1. MEMTEST tested good.
2. nothing over clocked

Have you considered the possibility of Malware/Virus?
If you think this could be a possibility, then check...
Be sure to follow all the steps carefully.

I only looked at the most recent dumps.
Route44 or others may have additional suggestions, if I overlooked something, or if they find something in other dumps...
I will try to come back and look at this further sometime tomorrow.

Next Day - Further Review of Hardware / Software Report (Belarc)
I notice that you do have Spybot, but I am not seeing your Firewall or AV software.
These are crucial pieces for maintaining a healthy system when connected to the Web.
Unfortunately I see you are also running a Torrent (Filesharing) package. This software will open a hole through your firewall, and leave you fully exposed to whatever nasities are running on those with whom you are sharing files. This means that Filesharing programs introduce a constant threat to your security and stability. Please look at other threads here on Filesharing...

Because you are running torrent software, I would strongly recommend the 8 steps, (link noted above).
Especially since I do not see your av or firewall listed in the Belarc report.

So after a long time of not posting, and still trying to figure out my BSOD's:

I have...
Ran several memtests (passed all multiple times)
Replaced my Corsair XMS RAM (Both 1gb sticks) (Thank you lifetime warranty)
Tried to find the errors in event viewer after almost every BSOD (no luck :[ )
Just about took a sledge hammer to my PC (usually twice a week)
And think it is perhaps a problem between my mobo (ASUS M2N SLI Deluxe), and my processor (AMD AM2 2200+)
If anyone has any ideas or knows of any other ways to narrow down BSOD error message origins, posting them would be fantastically helpful to me, thanks a ton.

Ive have attached two of the latest minidumps


System specs including OS & SP would help. I am looking at a dump right now, assuming XP sp3
Your error on the second dump was 0x50 ...
But the Widbg report points to Vista... so you are not running XP...
I suspect this information is still valid.

This kind of error is usually associated with a memory problem.

Let it run for at least seven passes and see what it comes up with.
There are 8 tests per pass, and it will take a while...
If you start getting errors, you can stop, and remove one stick ... test the sticks one at a time to isolate the issue.
If your memory comes up clean, we can explore other options, but this is the likely place to start.

These errors may be caused by one or more of the following:

* Replace the faulty hardware. You may be able to determine the faulty hardware by running diagnostics provided by the manufacturer. Please contact the hardware manufacturer for more information.
* Disable any anti-virus software that is running on your computer. If the STOP errors no longer occur, contact the anti-virus software manufacturer about a possible upgrade.
* Disable any third-party drivers that may be running. If the STOP errors no longer occur, contact the third-party manufacturer about a possible upgrade.Click to expand...

Your first dump showed a different error.... 0xD1 error and these are almost always caused by faulty drivers/buggy software.
the analysis points to ntoskrnl.exe which is too general to help. In another case, video drivers were at issue...

Are your video drivers updated?
Did your issues begin after starting some new activity? (like a new Game perhaps?)
Since both errors (0x50 and 0xD1) can point at drivers, this might be the place to start.

Might a faulty harddrive be a part of it?

A:BSODs and now bad display

The 'BIOS memory chip (that small circular thing) from my old gone PC' is a battery that supplies retention voltage to your CMOS (bios). The checksum error is because it now has no voltage and it 'forgets' things.

Put the original back in.

Your other symptoms sound more like your graphics card failing or driver corruption than anything else. Uninstall your graphics drivers from Add/Remove and reboot. You'll only have VGA. How does that perform?

it became a padron: each time i install a new program, a new driver, or a new hardware (like a usb pen) i get a BSOD, but after that i can use it without a problem. i did some memory tests, but no problem was found.
can anyone help me?

A:Lots of bsods, cant find the reason

That P5K Pro board has been infamous for disliking certain memory modules. See if the memory you have is on the ASUS recommended list.
I assume you have checked your Device Manager and there are no yellow or red flags there. If not, please do so.
BSOD's are most frequently driver related. But can be caused by memory the motherboard does not like, or a unacceptable video graphics card.
I would start by trying one memory module at a time, or running the free MemTest86 for four hours or 7 passes, whichever is shorter.
Alternately, try different standard memory modules such as Crucial, Kingston, Corsair, OCZ, Infineon.
For video graphics, try going back to a slightly earlier version of the Driver, or go to a different source to get it.
Good luck. Please keep us posted about the change that fixes it.

A:PC Rebuild Problems

Ok, first of all, welcome
Right, lets get this straight:
Are you saying the new hdd is a SATA drive (as is the dvd-rw), connecting by a small thin, flat cable with a slightly 'L' shaped connector?
Or are you saying Its IDE (as is the dvd-rw) connecting by a wide flat ribbon cable with a 40-pin connector on each each?
I assume that when you say you 'moved the power supply' you mean you just took the 4-pin power molex out of the dvd-rw and put it into the new hdd?
Ok, if its boots up then it sounds to me like you are running IDE drives and it doesn't have a driver loaded for the newer SATA drive. It knows its there, but cannot mount it due to lack of driver support.
Tell me, was the original hdd and the dvd-rw using connected by the same cable?
If you connect IDE and SATA drives, from memory i'm sure it uses the SATA as master, but if it has no operating system on it, then it uses the next available which is the IDE.
It could be a controller issue. Try disconnecting the new hdd AND the dvd-rw and see if it boots up ok. If it does, re-connect the dvd-rw and reboot, see what happens. If it goes back to BSOD then maybe the dvd-rw OR the cable is faulty. OR if the dvd-rw is on the 2nd IDE controller it could be that.

Please supply as much info as possible, for other to be able to help out.
I'm off to Florida to see Mickey and the gang in the .a.m so won't be around for 2 weeks.

Well, my pc BSOD's basically whenever I touch it or move it at all, and sometimes, often times, I'll just come home to a bsod. And often, I will have to boot the pc up 11 or 12 times before it will actually boot up and quit crashing in the middle. Also, I know when my pc is going to crash sometimes, because sometimes it literally chirps. Little chirps at around 1.5 second intervals, then it crashes.

A:Need Help!! New Rebuild Blue Screens

You'll probably have to install a clean version of XP. Your old motherboard drivers are probably messing you up. I don't think the emachine XP disk will work as they most likely built the drivers into the XP install itself.

I have been getting seemingly random BSODs and deep freezes lately. They are not totally random, i.e. they happen after starting or exiting programs, but not always. Only sometimes. I might run a program and get a deep freeze, and then upon reboot, running the same program again does nothing. Can anyone tell me what is going on? Thanks. Following is my minidump.

A:Random BSODs

Your minidump crashes at ntkrnlpa.exe and references verclsid.exe as the owning process.

The verclsid.exe file is known to cause problems and could be the cause of your problems too.

See HERE and HERE for more info.

Obviously, it`s difficult to be sure from just one minidump, but it is a known issue and therefore is worthy of further investigation.

Dear Forum
I'm getting BSODs almost every day, and my wife is starting to complain.
Can anyone help interpret and resolve the problems.
I have attached a few of the recent minidumps. I think they might be caused by different problems.
Many thanks.

A:Daily BSODs

One crash by "symevent.sys", a Symantec file. One by "rdbss.sys", a Windows File, another by "ndis.sys", also a Windows Files.
Two by "lpx.sys", which I can't find any info about.
Try uninstalling Symantec products, and try a free alternative like Avast, AVG,etc. If that doesn't fix it then open command prompt (start-run-cmd), and run sfc /scannow to check system files.

Alright heres my problem, I recently killed my motherboard(Epox 8k3a+) during a recapping procedure and I was using the onboard RAID controller with 2 80GB Seagate drive setup in RAID 0. My Question is can I just purchase another motherboard with an identical RAID controller on it (Highpoint HPT372) and I should be able to boot it up off my drives? Anyone done something like this before? Even getting into safemode would work. Ive tried to use RAID Rebuilder and GetDataBack from Runtime Software and there are many files that dont get found and it acts as if the drives are bad but I know they arent. I am unable to get another 8k3a+ but I can get a 8k9a2+ which has the same RAID on it just a different chipset(KT400 from KT333ce). I really need some help to get the data off these drives.

A:Rebuild RAID setup

It should Just Work if you set the drives to RAID0 with the right stripe size setting. Don't initialize the array!

It may be better to use Linux software RAID to get the data - it's free and it is easier to play around with settings and such. Needs Linux and RAID expertise though..

Actions taken thus far:

1) reinstalled Windows XP SP2

2) replaced HDD and reinstalled Windows XP SP2

3) new Kingston 256MB - Memtest86 still gave the same errors

4) replaced video card and used different monitor

5) new CDRW and new data cables

6) new 400 w P/S

7) brand new P3 866 CPU with different fsb and multiplier from Celeron 900

8) replaced motherboard with another ASUS P3V133 - more errors on Memtest86.
Now Windows XP will not complete pre-installation file loading.

Inasmuch as there is little else to replace except me, I am considering the possibility that either the slotket has failed, or the original motherboard may have had a faulty voltage regulator that may have damaged the L2 cache for both CPUs.

I'll buy one more P3 CPU before I let this machine beat me.

All I did was put my system in a new case, and when I powered up, it shows the desktop, then restarts. It worked fine before I transfered it, and is in a shop not connected to the internet. thanks

A:Rebuild in new case, now constantly restarts?

Hello and Welcome to Techspot!

Just a couple of things to check off the top of my head:

1. Did you install the riser pins to separate the motherboard from the case?
2. Did you for any reason remove the heatsink from the CPU, breaking the thermal paste/tape seal? If so, you'll need to re-seat it.
3. Take all your hardware out one at a time, and re-seat it. Something may have come loose in the transfer. Also disconnect and reinsert all power connections from your PSU to the motherboard/hdd/video cards etc.

Good luck!

Without knowing anything more than what you have reported I would suspect one of the two below to be the cause of your troubles:

1. What kind of PSU are you using? A weak or poor quality PSU will cause system problems that manifest themselves in strange ways.

2. Have you loaded the latest drivers for the mobo? Try the following:
Remove all the Nvidia drivers (including display) via the windows add/remove programs utility, restart in safe mode and run DrivercleanerPRO then restart and install the latest Nvidia driver set. Also, if you do this, do not load the Nvidia Armor Firewall. See if that stabilizes things.

Good luck mate and great flash movies BTW.

First download and run the Memtest86+ programme from

Let it run for at least seven passes. if you don`t have a floppy drive, there is an iso version, that you can burn to cd and boot from that.

If your ram checks out ok, then I would guess that either you have a bad psu, or a overheating problem with either your cpu or graphics card.

you have corrupt boot sector on the HD that is not working. You will have to low level format it. Boot your windows CD and delete all partitions on the non working drive. Then reformat it. If the drive came with a DOS-based formatter, use it instead. Western Digital drives tend to have software that will pre-format them.

A:Repeated BSODs, NIC card at fault ?

welcome to techspot.


the errors you reported are the result of a hardware problem. run the computer in each of the following configurations until you get a system error or the machine runs flawlessly for a day or two:
-with the onboard NIC on and connected to the modem
-with the onboard NIC on but not connected to anything
-with the onboard NIC disabled in your bios

at a glance, it seems likely that your problems were caused by faulty hardware, but these steps are important for diagnosing the problem.

There is an option on their menu to 'index keys' and when that is done there are two errors which are 5XXX which will not let them index it.

But I just dotn seem to understand whats wrong. Tried understanding the minidumps using bluescreen view and I all could gather was some issue with ntoskernel.exe

I'm attaching my minidumps, can someone please tell me whats wrong - is it my laptop getting too hot or some driver etc?

Extra Info: The laptop is HP dv-7 running Win7-x64 and does seem to get pretty hot, especially when I'm playing Counter Strik 1.6 on Steam and crashes are much more frequent when I'm playing Steam CS 1.6

Thanks and Regards

Okay, I think it is time to check your memory and then check the hard drive for errors. Take your time and follow these instructions:

Okay so, I get random blue screens during any game I play. I can play Lineage 2 for hours before I get a BSOD or a pink blurry screen. Any other games I play like Alan Wake, the Mass Effect 3 demo, BF3, any game basically, my pc will BSOD or get a pink blurry screen after about 15 minutes of gameplay.

I've two weeks ago installed an additional DIMM ram stick. Ever since I've been recieving completely random BSOD's.

I've recently attempted a fresh install, creating a new page file, as well as defraging. Although I didn't fix the problem the BSOD's seem to be thrown at me less frequently. As well, I seem to only be receiving two types of BSOD's currently, opposed to before.

I haven't been able to track down the cause of bsod's I've been getting recently. I have attached the last three minidumps as a zip file; I don't know whether anyone can help. Oddly each BSOD has a different error message. Besides my specs below, the system is unusual in having two samsung 830 ssds (256 GB) in a Raid 1 configuration controlled by the intel raid sata6 on the asus motherboard. I'm using the latest version of all the drivers etc. (in this case, Intel rst-e (enterprise), not plain rst). (Did not get any memory errors with memory checkers.) Thank you.

Sweet system!

What memory checkers did you use? How long was the PC running normally before the BSOD's first appeared? A recent update or program addition could have caused this instability. I have seen so many posts here dealing with Windows 7 64-bit and SSD's that have this sort of instability recently...

So I built this machine about a month ago, and it was working fine till a week ago, when I started getting random BSODs. They're not always the same call-out, and was wondering if you could help me get to the bottom of it. I am not aware of any changes, except for maybe video card driver updates, that could be causing this.


BF3 is crashing for random reasons, I never find out why. I had crossfire enabled and disabled it and it still crashed. Sometimes I get a BSOD while playing bf3, other time I was just on youtube.

So a couple of weeks ago I started getting BSODS of all sorts and then I found out that my case fan wasnt working at all so i replaced it and it is now functioning. Yesterday I got my first BSOD since I've gotten the fan about 2 weeks. Today i got about 6... all different ones and I updated my bios as well to see if that may be the problem but it wasn't. So I was wondering what to do ?

P.S.: im not really a Tech guy , I barely know anything about computers.
Please help.

I have booted up into regular mode with my user account and as an Administrator. Desktop icons load slowly (placeholder icons load right away, but the specific icons for the items load 1 evrey 5 seconds). I get a message about Zone Alarm being expired (not part of theproblem, but letting you know it executes Zone Alarm just before the BSOD occurs).

Safe mode is fine (I have even tweaked the registry to have sound during safe mode). Safe mode sucks though.

I have attached the 3 BSODs. I haven't analyzed them myself yet. My dump files exceed the size limit. - will convert to a format that is within limit and is readable.

A:Series of 124 BSODs

Hello KCBluesman and Welcome to this Bleeping website!
Just as a test, boot into Safe Mode and run the computer for a couple of hours. Let me know if your crashes stop, or do they continue. If you don't know how to access Safe Mode, your user's manual will tell you. If you don't have one, SM is usually accessed by tapping one of the F-Keys (try F8 or F11 first) on boot. If you can run in SM without crashes, reboot and try Safe Mode with Networking (that will enable internet connection). Let me know the results of each.

Hi, for the past month or so, I've been dealing with random BSODs on my windows 7 laptop (Sager NP4658), can someone tell me what's causing them?  I've attached the dump files from the last month to this post.
I've already done a chkdsk which found no corruptions, SFC 'did not find any integrity violations', and verifier.exe (only tested all non-microsoft drivers) found no problems.

A:Frequent BSODs for the past month

Please provide this information so we can provide a complete analysis (from the Pinned Topic at the top of the forum): Out of 7 memory dumps there were 6 different BSOD error codes.  The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things (the list is not in any sort of order):- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case.  Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)- missing Windows Updates- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems- low-level driver problems- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from or ).Please get a head start on the hardware diagnostics - they are located here: Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen both dtsoftbus01.sys and dtscsibus.sys blamed on several occasions).Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):  New link (15 Aug 2012): (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).Alternate link: procedure here: following is for informational purposes only.[font=lucida console]**************************Thu Jun 11 20:20:10.037 2015 (UTC - 4:00)**************************

A:Programs crashing and BSODs

...restored cpu overclock to stock....Formatted hardrive and reinstalled windows.....Ran driver verifier, msi afterburner driver caused crash at start up (removed it)....Ran driver verifier, crashed while watching a youtube video on chrome from driver 88d79cdf_a4bf_4bfc_9cf0_c9ca4be1a6fb.sys (searched computer and couldn't find it, and nothing showed up on google)....Switched page file from ssd to hdd, only had one tab crash since I did it (not sure if it helped or if it was unrelated as the crashes are normally unpredictable.) May 27Hi -I see that Windows was reinstalled on 19 May 2015. You only have 18 Windows Updates installed; there should be ~125-150. Please check for outstanding Windows Updates & allow all to install.I assume you had BSODs in the prior Windows installation...? Was the system overclocked then too?Is o/c reset to default at this time?I did see driver RTCore64.sys in several VERIFIER_ENABLED dumps (bugcheck = 0xc4) a good move to remove the offending driver in this case where Driver Verifier flagged it.The other VERIFIER_ENABLED dump (also bugcheck 0xc4) that named 88d79cdf_a4bf_4bfc_9cf0_c9ca4be1a6fb was likely a dynamically allocated driver (allocated on the fly); probably belonging to Speccy, but am not 100% positive of that.From the dump, we find Speccy listed as the process (last line) -
PROCESS_NAME: Speccy64.exe

Translations: 0000.04b0 0000.04e4 0409.04b0 0409.04e4Are you running the most recent version of Speccy - v1.28.709?The location of the page file has no bearing on the actual cause of BSODs, i.e., moving the page file as you described did not cause or even contribute to the BSODs.I would have to conclude based on the dumps, which really don't tell us very much at all here that RAM failure is likely - whether it is RAM itself failing or other underlying hardware affecting RAMs ability to properly hold kernel code is unknown, i.e., cause = "unknown hardware failure". This theory is bolstered by the fact that BSODs continued after reinstalling Windows and in fact occurred on the very same day.Run memtest86+ again, but run each stick in each slot one at a time. 7 passes minimum - Crucial support for a firmware upgrade for your Crucial CT240M500SSD1 SSD - noticed that you have 2x4GB RAM; however, the sticks don't appear to be matched. They are the same speed (1333), but appear to have other minor differences as well as different manufacturers. I would suggest that you try running on a single stick (doesn't matter which one - try both separately) and see if the BSODs continue.Regards. . .jcgriff2

So customer had 2 regular drives. 1-boot and 1-storage. Added a SSD as the new boot drive. kept the old C: as more storage. After fresh install of Win 7, machine worked fine for hours. BSOD then fine for a while, bsod (too quick to see errors) Thought I had it fixed by resetting RAM and moving RAM slots. Worked 36 plus hours then bsod. Uploading zip files as requested.
