Saying again, if you are not savvy with the BIOS update, dont go for it. Any interruption will convert it to a brick only. Take the help of anyone who can do it.

If you want to test the HDD, use Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
  • Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
  • You can use Win32 DiscImager to create a bootable USB and run Seatools for DOS. Follow this post to know how to make a bootable Seatools USB.
Be prepared that the long test will take a sizable time to be completed.

Alright, I found seatools for windows, but I'll use the dos one. I decided to go for the BIOS update because ASUS boards have an easy bios flash. It took like 2 minutes and no problems. Thanks again for the help so far, I'm gonna test the hard drive, and if I get no errors but still get BSODs I'll assume it's the HDD port I'm using.

Should my hard drive be in IDE or AHCI? Would that affect BSODing?

IDE or AHIC ... that does not make a huge difference from the BSOD perspective, as far as they are using the system native deivers (pciide.sys for IDE mode and msahci.sys for AHCI mode).

Done the Seatools test?

Actually, my flash drive wouldn't boot, I think I'll try the version for windows in a minute. It started BSODing so bad I couldn't boot, so I went to switch the hard drive in its bay before the seagate test and two of my RAM sticks were popped up! Their clamps appear to be damaged, which I didn't notice before. I'll still run the seagate test in a minute though hopefully that RAM was the problem.

You have found the root of your issue I guess.

Yeah, really sorry about that! I opened the case when I got it and saw that the RAM was intact, but I didn't notice that the clamps were loose. Thank you so much for your time; I will mark this thread solved assuming I don't get any more BSODs soon.
