Windows 7: Random crashes BSOD, dump file won't zip

Just writing this comment to get my post back on the first page so someone can see it. My computer crashed twice again last night (as mentioned in comment #20). Do those dump files tell us anything?

This dump doesn't show much, I'm thinking of a storage issue compared to a driver problem.

Download and run CrystalDiskInfo then post a screenshot of your drive.

I don't know how to use this software, but it looks like it just automatically runs when you start it up. I guess you just want a picture of this:

That looks good enough to me.

You say you've ran SeaTools and disk checks?

I have run dskchk and speccy, but I never heard of seatools until now. I just downloaded it, so I'll run it now.

Post back the results.
I posted it in the first reply which you never posted back on.

It's alright though, sometimes we miss things, just post back the results after the test

Looks like you can do different kinds of tests with Seatools. I didn't know which test to do. I did the "short drive self check" and the "S.M.A.R.T. Check". And it said my hard drive passed both of them. Let me know if you need me to do any of the other tests.

The Long Generic Test is recommended.

I thought that was going to take hours, but it only took one hour to do a long generic test. It also passed.

Go into the device manager, are there any symbols?

I admit, I'm starting to run out of ideas.

This can be caused by drivers, specifically pool leakage but I'm seeing none of that.

Your C media driver is still getting flagged, I might have to look into this more.

Did sfc /scannow fix all the errors?
