Here is where I'm at...
- Ran a full chkdsk. Don't think anything major found or fixed there.
- Ran the Seatools tests. All but the long passed. Long did fail 2x.
- Ran Passmark performance tests several times and all hard drive tests passed.
Right now after a factory restore I've installed all his apps, restored files, and done all Windows Updates and it seems to be running fine now. I'm still thinking there is an issue with the drive as this is the second time we've had to do this. I didn't get the dumps the first time but I do remember it was basically the same BSOD code.
Question, is it possible that some kind of drive corruption occurred due to software conflict, virus, etc... that made it appear to be a hard drive issue?
I still plan to contact Acer for possible Warranty repair/replacement.
Thanks again for all the help,
