chkdsk will run through 5 different stages and display a notification of each stage as it is being performed:

Verifying Files (Stage 1 of 5)
Verifying Indexes (Stage 2 of 5)
Verifying Security Descriptors (Stage 3 of 5)
you may also see "Verifying Usn Journal ..." at this point before stage 4 commences
Verifying File Data (Stage 4 of 5)
Verifying Free Space (Stage 5 of 5)

If it has no bad sectors and only reading time out then it mostly wont crash, only freezes with the HDD light totally busy.

BIOS has it ways annoy us. We leave them as it it is but suddenly need little change. You might try to set back the BIOS to its default first, and try to switch the HDD mode entry between AHCI and IDE. (who knows the drivers screw us up).

Really willing to help, but that is the best I think of and guess.

the bios on the motherboard is set on default. I downloaded the cpu monitor gadget, it has a realtime graph of the cpu's activity and when the computer freezes, both keyboard and mouse function ceases and the graph of the cpu also stops.

Wow.. that is called total freeze. Weird, Pal.
As I am no expert here, how about start making some simple guess.? (based on mine, GIGABYTE GA-UD2HD in the past). You might want to try this three first,
  1. Restart the system with another set of mouse and keyboard. (I have my mouse jammed my PC in the past)
  2. You have 4 memory slots. Tray starting it with single piece of RAM, if it work then swap it one by one on each start.
  3. If you do have a digital voltmeter check the 5V and 12 volts from free socket of PSU.
I think you can do it. Happy guessing.

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

Hi, I am just going through all the errors and one of them is DES2 not starting "The DES2 Service for Energy Saving. service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified. "
so how do i modify the energy saving options to start the DES2 service?
and also i cant find MEMORY.dmp in windows either!

You would have to see if the DES2 service has any dependencies and whether those services are starting. Start Menu -> Type Services into Search programs and files -> right click Services (the one with the blue gears) and click Run as administrator -> Find the DES2 services and right click it -> Click Properties -> Open the dependencies tab -> the first box lists what it depends on.

Also, make sure any of the services it depends on also have services they depend on starting.

Have you searched the whole hard drive for *.DMP?

My windows 7 is constantly crashing.
My Windows 7 is constantly crashing during video games and streaming shows. There isn't a BSOD it just shuts down then reboots. Even then it doesn't always reboot all the way. I have tried restoring and antivirus scans though I can't seem to pinpoint the source. Any help or advice would be helpful.
