Windows 7: BSOD while Reenabling Ethernet/possibly caused by failing hard disk?

BSOD while Reenabling Ethernet/possibly caused by failing hard disk?

A BSOD happened around a week ago while re-enabling my ethernet adapter on my laptop. This is the first and only time my computer has blue screened as of now.

A previous disk check(yesterday) found bad sectors within my hard drive(might be a sign of a bad hard disk?). Could that have been the cause of the BSOD?

Xohn now how did you run that chkdsk if you ant to run it thoroughly then follow this
Disk Check and use the switches /f and /r in Option 2

If you feel the drive is faling then it may be making some odd and loud noises so to check the drive itself try these
SeaTools for Windows | Seagate and to do a physical drive test (it's surface) use the Partition Wizard surface test
Free Partition Manager for Window PC | MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition see my pic

The bad sectors has increased from 20kb to 24kb, but the drive doesn't seem to be making weird noises?

Yep now just because it is not making any odd noises doesn't necessarily mean it isn't failing I just mentioned that to eliminate anything mechanically failing.

The increase in bad sectors just what test were you using? If you haven't run either the Seagate or Partition Wizard ones then I would suggest the Seagate then the Partition Wizard ones in that order because the surface test takes a while to complete.

It might be an idea to send the dump files too Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD as these may give us direct pointers to the problem.

There is no evidence for a failing hard disk in the .dmp file nor eventviewer log file. Performing a chkdsk /R as suggested will probably address the issue:

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type chkdsk /R and hit enter.

You will be prompted whether you wish to schedule a chkdsk scan at next startup, type 'Y' and hit enter. Now restart your computer and chkdsk will automatically run.

Hmm didn't notice a dump Golden and the /f /r I did suggest and what I was presuming was throwing up the tra bad sectors. The tests I only added as an addon in case.

This really puts my mind at ease! I read up on the ethernet adapter and it turns out many others were having the similar problems (which I should done first, my bad ).

About the hard disk programs, thanks but I've been pretty busy so sorry for the lack of updates. I should be running those programs later tonight to make sure.
