Windows 7: BSOD while leaving computer idle.

BSOD while leaving computer idle.

I was watching some T.V. and my computer just BSOD'd while it was on the desktop. This has been happening frequently and it seems to be a hard drive problem. I have a new one I haven't installed yet, I'm just making sure this is a hard drive problem. Check them all if you like, but the one I'm most concerned happened to day, 9/29/2012.

Get a new hard drive and that should be the end of problems.
