Windows 7: BSOD at random times, then cannot boot into windows

BSOD at random times, then cannot boot into windows

Hi, I'm new around here, but I've been having a problem for a while that I cannot for the life of me figure out.

Every now and then, my computer BSODs, then restarts, but then it cannot boot into the drive that windows is installed in. It says that there is a broken windows installation and that I should use the Windows install disk to repair it. Thing is, I don't have a windows install disk because I'm using an .iso provided by my school.

Anyway, after waiting some time or unplugging/plugging back the hard drive, it randomly successfully boots into windows again. I can't think of any reason why this would this a software or hardware problem?

My setup is Windows 7 on an SSD and Ubuntu on a standard hard disk, with Grub as my boot loader.

I also looked in minidumps and there aren't any crash logs from when my computer BSOD'd, which is even weirder. Any hints?

Here's my system info, too.

Thanks for the help!

Hello ollieoblivious and welcome to Sevenforums.

* How does your computer act in safe-mode?
* Does it boot Ubuntu just fine?
* When did this start happening?
* Have you installed anything new recently? (e.g. drivers, hardware or software).

Best Regards,
