I ran the MemTest, and the computer showed no errors. However, when I had the driver
verifier activated, my computer would blue screen right before windows would hit the log in screen, giving the error Stop 0x000000c9 caused by dtsoftbus01.sys. I am going to do a system restore to a previous point and see what happens from there.
Edit [Jan 19, 12:31]: I tried to do a system restore as was suggested via the process for the driver verifier, and got an unspecified error (0x8000ffff). I tried the windows memory diagnostic (which didn't find anything), and then tried to start up windows. It started, even though it wan't before. I am going to check for an new errors and see what I can find.
Edit [Jan 19, 15:29]: So Windows seemed to be working properly; so I thought things were not too terrible. I went ahead and installed some games I had been meaning to play with the hopes that either A) the system was now working and everything was good or B) me playing games would cause my system to fail. However, I had also turned of page filing, which I did not realize would not allow my system to keep dump files. My system crashed again, but this time there was no blue screen it just restarted, this was after I re-installed the drivers
for the Xbox 360 controller as given by Microsoft. Should I get a new driver for that purpose and see if I still crash or is it possible that I need to RMA my graphics card as that is the only piece of hardware is new and when it was installed that is when I started having these crashes (they even have continued onto the new system) or could it be that my old hard drive is failing (which I am using to store programs) and it has bad sectors or something of the like?
Edit [Jan 19, 16:40]: I re-installed my old graphics card, and that did not help at all, i still had a BSOD. So, I am thinking now that it was my old hard drive; is there any utility out there that you guys would suggest for testing if a hard drive is failing? I am going to see if I can find something, and if you guys can get back to me I would be much obliged.
Edit [Jan 19, 20:26]: So, with all that was happening, one of my friends suggested that i just boot just my SSD (Main Drive), it tried to boot, but then crashed as windows booted; here is the error:
