Windows 7: Random BSOD which started when WD MBL was installed

The smaller drives migrated across from other builds.
Looks like both fail using the seagate test
1 failed using hddscan
None fail if using chkdsk, weird

I am close to dropping in another 2x3 or 4TB in the box anyway but the issue now is I dont want my C drive on a big one.

I do have a couple of other smaller drives in caddies, but they are of a similar vintage , with less use, to the ones that are failing.

A NEW C drive would be the solution but small ones cost as much as a 1TB.

Should I perhaps consider a 120gb SSD as a C drive?

I did a backup the other day when I was considering a re install using backup and restore and doing a copy and paste onto a separate drive.

I should add that even with the supposed harddrive issues after un-installing networx, today has been a BSOD free day.

An SSD is a must in my mind my friend you will be astonished at the speed of boot etc.
A 120GB is about right for that and some space left over for data which can be transferred later. There are tutorials for installing and transferring data in this forum.

Just one thing please research the SSD's first as cheap or expensive is no promise it is going to be good.

My suggestions are the Samsung's Crucial or SanDisk all brands I use in my five machines and have had no issues at all. Probably the best are the Samsung's - the EVO is the sweet spot

But ask in the forum and you will get a flood of advice and it is your choice but it can make deciding very convoluted

It is not a supposed harddrive issue; at least till now.

Anyway, let us know for any further issue.

And, update the driver to your webcam, too. Support + Downloads: HD Webcam C270 - Logitech

Let us know the situation after doing these. Because there are more issues, apparently; but these are the most important things to do.
99.9% sure that I have already done these before coming here but I will check them again just to be sure. (DONE)

Thanks
Unfortunately the zipped data does not say so. If so, I would not have suggested to do it to you.

Well, when I do as suggested it comes back telling me I have the latest and greatest already installed so I don't know what else I can say.
