Couple BSOD lately. Last one while using Utorrent.

Hi, I have gotten a couple BSOD lately. I just had one while using Utorrent. I left while Utorrent was running and came back to a black screen with text and at the bottom it said something about nvidia boot agent, and I think it said Disk Drive Failure or error but im not sure. It then said to insert system disk and press enter but instead I just restarted. When windows started it said I had just had a BSOD. I attatched my zip file at the bottom.

Please uninstall Comodo software for testing purpose:
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\Comodo\COMODO Internet Security	Public:Start Menu\Programs\Comodo\COMODO Internet Security	Public

Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall stubborn software.
Opt for Advance Mode while uninstalling.
This allows you to remove leftover registry entries of the software: Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems
Microsoft Security Essentials is recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software. It is free and lightweight:-Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Reduce items at start-up: Startup Programs - Change

Perform a clean boot: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Run a System file check (SFC): SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run Disk Check on your Hard Drive(s): Disk Check

Scan with Kaspersky TDSSKiller:

Check for heating issues using Speccy or HWmonitorUpload a screen shot: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

If this does not provide stability. Test RAM.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.

Do this test overnight, before going to bed.
