BSOD's at idle and running

getting more and more BSOD's.... getting sick of it, finally going to ask for help.
the last two BSOD's never made a .dmp file for some reason.... even though the settings are set to make a .dmp file in %systemroot%/minidump i have a couple older ones though. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just got another BSOD. No .dmp file this time either This time I was in Netflix (in Chrome) and it was paused. An error message popped up saying silverlight had crashed, and moments later, a BSOD.

Is there anything else I can do for info?

  • Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
  • Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
  • Also, save a copy as a .txt file and include it also (it's much more difficult to read, but we have greater success in getting the info from it).

Back again... it was my old hard drive causing the BSOD's, i think anyway... it was definitely faulty. I didn't use my comp for a long time due to the BSOD's but then i got a new hard drive, a SSD and the thing is awesome. I am using the SSD for my OS but I still have my old faulty HD hooked up with all its info (if this is causing the BSOD's please let me know!) Anyway I got a BSOD two days ago and another just a little bit ago today. Any help would be greatly appreciated! You guys are awesome!

Hi, sorry for not following the rules. So simple, yet you probably have so many people not follow them. Well here is the proper zip (with a new BSOD), and thanks again for any help.

1)Things to know (that you will probably know as soon as you review that folder):
2)My slave drive is a new with a fresh SSD (my old HDD was faulty)
3)I still have the old faulty drive with all the info hooked up (it has windows still installed but I dont run windows off it)
4)Once so far since I got the new SSD the message has appeared on boot up: "A disk Error occured: ctrl alt del to restart." This used to happen often before the new drive. (I have heard it can be fixed by reflashing BIOS or something, I have NOT done that)
5)BSOD's happen even when I'm running stuff that isn't related to the old drive
