There are multiple bugcheks with multiple probable causes. So there remains a chance of hardware related issues. Some of the bugchecks are supporting this opinion, too.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest86+ for at least 8 consecutive passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us.

Stress test the CPU.
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95
It saves the result as a .txt file in the prime95's folder. Upload the file for us.

Let us know the results.

Hi, i did those tests and here are the results, there are also more detailed results in the attachments.

- memtest86 overnight for 12 passes and it turned up no errors
- prime95 also ran for 2 hours with no errors
- furmark twice for 20 minutes and each time nothing weird appeared on screen and the temperature seemed stable

After a windows reinstall which i thought might help with driver problems there have been 2 BSOD's. The first one accured while i was trying to create a System restore point, and the second one immediately after i clicked a random folder to open it. There are dumps in the .zip file in the attachments.

I also installed HDtune and CrystalDiskInfo and they both report errors on my hard drive. There is a screenshot of the programs in the attachments. Could my HDD be causing BSOD's?

Help much appreciated.


edit: another bsod just after this post, dump in the attachment "newestBSOD"

Well, very good job. Test the HDD using Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows. Take both the short test and the extended test.

Let us know the results.

The first quick test failed, so i went on the entended one and it reported bad sectors which i chose to repair but im not sure how much that actually did since it finished so quickly. The second quick test which i then repeated passed.

I dont know what the deal is with this drive, i would like to be sure that this is what is causing my BSOD's before i go and buy a new one.

You need to buy a new one and back up all the important data there.

ATM you rightly opted for the repair. See if the bad sector repair improves anything, and let us expect so.

But you need to back up your data, because a repaired disk may not last for long.

[UNSOLVED]

After my assumption that the hard drive was at fault i switched it for a functional one from a healthy computer and still got a bsod shortly after that.

In the attachments are all the dumps ive gathered so far, hopefully someone can make sense of them. Note that ive tested RAM, GPU and CPU on a clean windows install and they seem to be alright unless i missed something.

The other HDD is essentially identical to the previous one?? With the same partitions those are identically filled up??

Strange!! It will be too difficult to find such match.

Before replacing HDD, from the data uploaded in post #3 ....
Model WDC WD6400AAKS-65A7B2 ATA Device
Size 596,17 GB (640.132.416.000 bytes)
Drive C:

So ... I should not say .... that the above statement of you is wrong. But it seems like that only.
