Windows 7
Multiple Different BSOD

Windows x64
Core i5 2.67 @ 3.71
HD 5770
8GB Ram
Main drive is 160GB Intel SSD
Secondary is Seagate 2TB

I have had perhaps one BSOD a week for the past 3 weeks, nothing serious or so I thought, but today things aren't going so well. The reported cause was the video card, but as I require my computer on pretty much 24/7 and restarting is a hassle (since my graphics card doesn't detect my main monitor over a DisplayPort -> VGA adaptor reliably) I ignored it.

Generally quite shortly after logging on, anything from 10seconds to 20mins I am getting a BSOD. The listed causes seem to change, the three most recent came from:

Cache Manager

Earlier today there was also another one caused by the video card.

Booting into safe mode I managed to make an image of my main drive, the computer seems to be able to stay on without issue in safe mode.

I downloaded and ran the BSOD Dump & System File Collection App which seems to run successfully but is not creating any output files in C:\Users\Tom\Documents.

perfmon /report would not work either, just giving the message .h1{ font-family: 'Segoe UI'; font-weight: bolder; font-size: 12pt; } .text{ font-family: 'Segoe UI'; font-weight: normal; font-size: 12pt; } .info{ font-family: 'Segoe UI'; font-weight: normal; font-style: italic; font-size: 12pt; } [IMG]res://wdc.dll/error.gif[/IMG] Error:

An error occured while attempting to generate the report.

Tried running "WhoCrashed" but that require windbg to be installed which I can't do in safe mode it seems.

Any thoughts on what to try next? I'll have a go at getting the BSOD tool to run before it crashes if I boot normally...

Update: My Secondary HDD could not report its name properly in BIOS. I ran some basic tests on this and the main drive last time I logged on, BSOD came part way through Long D.S.T (Using SeaTools). Passed the earlier ones before that.

If this is the HDD failing then this is the 4th HDD to fail in as many months after being connected to this computer. Something strange happening.

Update2: Managed to run off the BSOD tool seconds before it crashed. Have attached to post.
