Windows 7: BSOD - After extended idle period - Win 7 Ultimate 64 8GB RAM

BSOD - After extended idle period - Win 7 Ultimate 64 8GB RAM

I have a homebuilt PC running Win 7 Ultimate 64 with an i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. I built the system using a refurbished ASUS P7P55-M mobo. The system works fine and will run about 95% of the time under constant use. However, if I leave it for an hour or so, it will BSOD. After the BSOD, about 50% of the time it runs a hard drive consistency check, but otherwise seems no worse for wear.

I've attached SF zip file as requested and I'm hoping someone can help me decipher this.

I'm trying to avoid a new mobo and CPU...

Thanks a million for any/all help!

Welcome

Sound like hard drive is on its way out

Quote:
STOP 0x00000034: CACHE_MANAGER
Usual causes: Insufficient physical memory, Indexing, Device driver

STOP 0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel

STOP 0x00000024: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
Usual causes: Disk corruption, insufficient physical memory, Device driver, Indexing, Resident antivirus, backup, defrag programs, Disk/Drive failing/failure
Lets start with testing your hard drive

First do disk check for file system errors and bad sectors on it

Disk Check

Hard drive test both short and long with
SeaTools for Windows

You may also take a hard drive test from the hard drive manufacturers website

Let us know the results

Chkdsk was running with no errors. I was unable to install Seatools due to BSODs during install. However, your suggested cause turned out to be true when I noticed an error that indicated a corrupted MFT. I ran TESTDISK and it told me that my MFT and MFT Backup were both corrupt. Since I was ready to install Windows 8 anyway, I decided to try that.

I installed Windows 8 in Custom mode, which saved all my old files and settings in the WINDOWS.OLD file. I ran TESTDISK again and it still indicated a corrupt MFT. I re-ran the Windows 8 install, this time reformatting the hard drive before installing. This time, TESTDISK indicated no corruption. The system now appears stable and I have been exercising the heck out of the drive to see if I could get it to break.

Thank you for your help and the suggested place to look!
