Computer not booting, freezing during games, BSOD, not shutting down.

Hey Win7 Forums

Recently, my computer has been behaving quite oddly. It hasn't been booting up, but hasnt given any error messages. When I try to boot, it will open up to a black screen where the Starting Windows stuff is supposed to appear, but nothing will happen. I'll restart it a bunch of times, and eventually I'll get one where the words Starting Windows are there, but still nothing happens. If it offers me the option to load the repair program, it will open the screen that says windows is loading the files with the loading bar at the bottom, but nothing will load. It takes anywhere from 10 to 30 restarts before i'll seemingly just get lucky and it will turn on.

Also, I've been freezing lately while playing BF3. My video card drivers are up to date, along with the other main drivers. Sometimes, I'll get a BSOD if I wait long enough, but it doesnt ususally happen.

Also, when starting, sometimes when it says on the boot screen "Verifying DMI pool data", nothing will happen, and then it will suddenly say: Disk read error, press cntrl + alt + delete to restart.

This leads me to believe that it's a disk error, which explains a lot of the symptoms i've been having lately, but I just dont know where to start the diagnosis.

Any help would be much appreciated.. here's hoping I can turn it on tomorrow to check your responses.

You don't seem to have any dump files. Make sure your system is configured to create a dump file when it crashes.

It was set to make a Kernel dump, so i switched it to a small memory dump.

Okay, good. When you next get a BSOD, please post the dump file.

Just in passing: I saw you have CCleaner installed. Make sure not to run it for the duration of our troubleshooting. It tends to delete the .dmp files without the user being aware of it when the cleanup tasks run.
