Windows 7: Bunch of different BDOS's is my HHD dying ?

Bunch of different BSOD's is my HDD dying ?

Hello i have a problem with laptop , i started getting different typed of BSOD's it got to the point that my PC wouldn't stay stable beyond 5 minutes and very often crash while booting.
Tried booting in Safe Mode but this didn't help, only Safe Mode with Networking seemed to keep my PC stable for a bit longer (30 min) but the end result was always some BSOD.
I tried to install Registry cleaning programs but i couldn't , in fact i couldn't install anything i would get a red stop error everytime.
Unfortunatlly i don't remember the error types when trying to install programs but i do remember some of BSOD's i was geting.

Bad Pool Header
000003b System Service Exception
NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
Page fault in nonpaged


Finally i removed te HDD and connected it to my desktop , I've run chadsk to fix errors and surface scan with HD Tune (long one not quick) which didn't detect any bead sectors also in the health tab i git a green OK.
I thought ill just make a backup of my personal files and use restore to bring my laptop to the factory settings again.
Sadly to my surprise when i started restore shortly after formatting the windows partition i got another BSOD !!

Kernel Data in Page error

I've run BIOS Hard drive slf test , both short and long and it says its Passed HDD OK which is even more confusing.
I've also run BIOS Memory test which came back as Memory OK.
Im kinda stumped here anybody have any idea what's going on ?
Obviously i can't attach any dump files cause windows partition was formatted but do those BSOD indicate a HDD fault ?
What should i do ?

P.S The laptop has only 3 months and it's running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 which came with it.
Laptop is HP Pavilion g Series
Dual-core Intel Pentium B960 processor
4 GB RAM
750GB HDD

It appears that you have memory problems. The BIOS tests do not always catch these. 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).

If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
  1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
  2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
  3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
  4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Yes, you have bad RAM. Proceed with part 3 of the Memtest86+ tutorial to determine which module. Make sure to use the ESD safety steps I outlined.

You're welcome.

Let us know if it was the module or the slot that was bad, or possibly just the RAM not being properly in the slot.

I just tried to move the memory to other slot , result is the same.
I sure hope it's the module because I'd hate to buy new memory just to find out both my slots are dead.

It isn't too likely you have two bad slots. To be absolutely sure it is the memory and not just something strange going on with BIOS corruption, I would suggest one last set of steps. Clear the CMOS: How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Reset hardware/software connections with the BIOS using Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English) as a guide.
