Windows 7: recurrent BSOD and crashes even after format and reinstall of windows

I'd suggest waiting a few days to see what happens.
Does it run often on startup?

Okay, thanks, I played for a bit today with no crashes although I had nothing else open and tends to do it if I'm on Skype or have iTunes open whilst playing, though it seemed to be okay.
The time that chkdsk started automatically on startup was the first and it hasn't happened again,
I'll reply In a couple of days hopefully with more information then, thanks again for the help

Still having a lot of trouble with crashes, not many blue screens really i think only one or two but having a lot of crashes, especially when running more than one thing, disk check has also ran once or twice automatically on startup, shall I upload another health report?

I still suspect the hard drive - despite the test results.
But it can also be the cables (either data or power) or it can be the controller on the motherboard.

You've gotta replace one - take your pick!
Cables are the cheapest and easiest to replace
Hard Drive is next cheapest and easiest.

Okay, I will first replace the cables, seeing as they'd be the cheapest, any idea where I can get hold of these and which ones to buy? Would it be wiser to try and get them from eBay or get new ones from somewhere like ebuyer? Thanks

I think that you should get them from a place where you can return them. That way, should they not be the problem, you can at least get your money back.

I took your advice and bought a new hard drive, everything is working fine now except that I hear a loud clicking noise from my new hard drive. Have any ides why this might be?

Hard drives shouldn't make any significant noise. Are you sure it's the hard drive? If so, run the manufacturer's diagnostics on it.

Yes its definitely the hard drive, I tried a complete format and re install of windows and it is still happening, I'm currently running a full disk check now, I think this has been happening since I created a new partition on the Hard drive as I installed windows onto it from my old drive, I created a new partition to use to make it bootable and the partition was 200mb, after this i screwed everything back up in my pc and I'm pretty sure that it's been since then it's been making a kind of crunching or clicking noise whenever the pc is on.

I forgot to mention there doesn't seem to be a diagnostic for it I've done a lot of searching and can't find anything about it, the hard drive is OEM and on the box says intenso, my pc reads it as Samsung and none of these seem to have a diagnostic
