BSOD After Fresh Reformat. Possibly Hardware?
After many years of experiencing a BSOD, I decided to ask the forum so it'll be a lot faster and easier with the help of many experts. So let's get the story situated.
I have/had a Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.
CPU: Intel i5 2500K clocked at 4.0ghz (stock voltage)
Cooler: Corsair H50 Cooler
Graphics: Zotac GTX 560 TI OC AMP edition
RAM: Kingston HyperX 2x 4GB Ram 1600MHZ DDR3 1600
Hard Drive: Intel 320 160GB Solid State 1.8"
Motherboard: Biostar TP67B+
Power Supply: Antec Power Supply 400W High Current
Sound card: HT Omega Claro Plus
After running the computer for about a year, with all updated drivers and such, BSODs starts to occur. At first, I assume it was a virus (had avast before); so I decided to fully reformat the hard drive with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate again. I remember reading the BSOD screen, and sometimes they had different error codes. Strangely, sometimes my hard drive would not be detected until I had to restart many times until a successful detection for the SSD would occur.
So I reformatted, however; in the process of installing my first driver (Nvidia for GTX 560), I got a BSOD. Giving up hope, I decided to come here and report the problem. After that I just installed several drivers but not all.
Thought: I believe it's my hard drive that's failing, but I wouldn't mind a second opinion. I did transfer some of my old files after a fresh reformat; however, none of them were .exe files (except genuine drivers such as nvidia's)
Included are the dump and report. Thanks for the help.

Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.
The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community
While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.
