I would love to get this annoying BSOD while playing games.

Every now and then I get a Blue Screen for no reason.
I would love to figure out how to fix this problem.
It has been appearing a lot more recently.
So here's the zip file and stuff.
Thanks in advance.

it means the disk subsystem has experienced a failure.

Daemon Tools/Alcohol %
  • Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite Public:Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite Public
Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Windows 7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): DuplexSecure - FAQ

As an alternative, many people recommend the use of Total Mounter or Magic ISO

Security App
  • Start Menu\Programs\AVG Public:Start Menu\Programs\AVG Public
AVG can be a possible cause of BSOD's. Remove AVG and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials to see if it provides more stability. Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software. Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes are recommended from a strict BSOD perspective. They do not cause blue screens on the system as other AV products do.

Microsoft Security Essentials, Free antivirus for windows and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

For some reason CrystalDisk is not finding any disk at all. So I don't know what to do about that.

That`s not good.

I would tell you to delete and re install your video drivers as a starting point if you haven`t already.

And keep going with KK`s suggestions, the girl knows her stuff.

So I tried the Hard Drive Diagnostic I downloaded the program burned it on a CD etc. And it wouldn't detect my hardrive
So I just did the widnows version for my hard drive and it said it failed. So I think this might be a hard drive problem. But I will continue doing the things suggested.

That`s the problem with Blue Screens, so many different things can cause them, but it sounds like you`re onto something.

I suppose you don`t have another Hdrive around ?
