I took out the disk drive and put the original cord back in and it gave me an f4 a few hours later.

Confirm that you have tried connecting it to a different SATA port on the motherboard?

I believe there are only 2 ports on my motherboard. They are right next to each other and when I switched out the cord for the disk drive I just change which one the cord was connected to. It has been connected to both, the only thing I haven't tried would be to put cord 1 in cord 2 port and cord 2 into cord 1 port.

The errors you are seeing can 99.9% of the time be attributable to:
  • Faulty hard disk
  • Faulty SATA cables between disk and motherboard
  • Faulty power cables between disk and PSU
  • Faulty SATA ports on the motherboard
Since the hard disk passes all tests, you must go through every combination of cable/port to see where the error lies.

Before abandoning the disc, better you go for a full format and clean reinstall.

Sometimes some file system errors also cause those BSODs, a formatting will take care of that.

This might or might not have the bsod report. I formatted twice because i thought i messed something up, so I'm not sure if it was the first or second time that it crashed. I will upload again once i get another bsod if you haven't responded yet. Could you link a driver finder or driver detector.
