oh okay, I know a few times when this first started happening, I would get a BSOD and have to take a few tries to boot up, and when I did I would have to run system repair, which would run disk check, and it would tell me that there are bad sectors so it would have to repair them so I think that they are 'repaired' if that helps

Also, I've run seatools, short and long tests and both harddrives and all the tests were passes, hmmm, should I run the DOS one as well?

And I'm gonna start looking at these links you posted

I don't think bad sectors can be repaired and if they keep coming back I think the hard drive is a bad one.
Read this for information... What Is a Bad Sector and How Can I Repair It?

I'm reading it too

hmm I read through the article, looked around a little online and it says that harddrives should typically be replaced after about 5 years or so it said. Also, that there are soft and hard bad sectors... hmmm

Either way, before I replaced the mobo, gpu, cpu, RAM and added the SSD, my computer was running fine... just veeeeery slowly haha, maybe my old harddrive can't keep up with the higher end parts or something?

Umm is the hard drive a new one?
It might be faulty. Borrow a hard drive from a friend or someone..see whether it has the same issues or not.

Hey sorry for the delay, my landlord changed the internet provider so I didn't have any internet at all....

Anyway, I installed a high-end game on my SSD and was playing it for a while... I didn't even get one BSOD it ran fine.

My SSD is brand new, and my HDD is like.... almost 8 years old actually, maybe it's time for a new one?

Good luck!
Keep this thread open till you get your new hard drive and install, use, test it and be sure that the BSoD problem are gone.

Will be waiting for an update.

So is the system stable on the SSD?
Are you able to play your games? Even on max settings?
