BSOD on restart - ntoskrnl.exe 0x1000007e

I went to restart my computer before starting an art stream about 10 hours ago and I got a BSOD message...first time I seen one in years.

  • I had windows perform a reboot recovery (or..whatever that thing is called) a dozen times, but it was unable to fix any problems. Tried "Last known good configuration" but didn't do anything.
  • Was able to get into Safe-mode...which helped me eliminate that it was a problem with Windows. The 2 biggest responses I've heard to my particular error was the memory and graphics card. I checked and reset the memory a few times, and everything was fine there. I uninstalled and reinstalled the latest driver (even though I already had the latest...but just to double check) And as far as I know, everything else I have is up-to-date. My motherboard drivers, nothing has been released since 2012 when I last updated it.
  • I also ran 'error checking' on my drive, since i've been noting i've been getting "bad blocks" but came back clean, and says the drive is healthy. No idea what that's about...but keep getting alot of those errors in the Event Viewer.

After about 10 hours of fiddling and messing with it, I decided to make a post here. I made my zip file and went to restart to try 1 more thing. Safe-mode would no longer boot (would hang for a very long time on the last .sys file) so I restarted again and, for kicks, selected "last known good configuration" thinking I would be able to boot into safe mode after getting the BSOD again...but for some weird reason, Windows loaded normally...well...not in safe mode anyway...but It loads and runs VERRRYYYYY slowly. Took me 30min just to be able to get this far after starting up.

I have attached the .zip file, as per requested for BSOD help. I fear it will do it again once I try to restart my computer again. I would like to know any errors I may have and any steps to try and fix my problem.

EDIT: My system specs are in my profile, as detailed as I could make it.

Right it looks like your HDD is failing. Please download ad run seatools to check your HDD to see if it's failing.
Follow these instructions.

Yeah it keeps failing the tests...the tests just stop as soon as it fails.

Wonder why Windows tells me it's healthy when it's failing.

Looks like I'm buying another drive while I'm out today!
Thanks for the help, I'll post back once everything is setup to confirm everything is working as it should.

Yeah you have a bad HDD. Seatools is very reliable. Never heard of it until Arc mentioned it in the tutorial.
