Windows 7: random constant BSOD

random constant BSOD

I have been getting the BSOD for a few weeks now. When it started it was just once every few days but now its very constant. A few days ago I backed everything up and did a system restore (the kind that doesn't delete all your stuff). My computer would not complete the restore it kept telling me to insert a boot device and that I didn't have a hard drive. I pulled the battery and when I put it back it started windows like normal. I tried again and it did the same thing. I eventually factory reset my computer, but it didn't help. The BSOD was then happening like every three minutes. I installed updates for the computer and ran the check disk program. Everything was fine for like a day. This morning when I turned my computer on it again told me that I didn't have a hard drive, but found it again after I removed and replaced the battery. I have run several memory and hard drive tests that all come back normal. Even the one in bios comes back normal except this morning, and the two times I tried to system restore.

Hello and welcome Pandora mate one test on the hard drive you can run is a physical surface one with Partition Wizard see pic Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.

I forgot to ask but is it very noisy and also you could run Speccy for the temps in the machine too

Pandora have you tried running the machine with the battery left out? Might be worth a try.

If you can run these and see if any errors come up too and it might be worth doing these in safe mode
