Windows 7: BSOD while idle, Stop: 0x7A

BSOD while idle, Stop: 0x7A

I woke up today to my computer restarting endlessly in a BSOD loop: it would attempt to recover from the BSOD, try to boot into Windows, and BSOD again. I powered it off completely and powered it back on and it booted just fine. However, being no stranger to BSODs and attempting to analyze their causes, I immediately went to work identifying the error. I opened up my minidump folder, but there was only one dump. So I have no clue what caused my computer to restart in the first place. It was stop 0x7A, with parameter two (the one that tells you what happened with 0x7A, sometimes) being 0xC000000E. I did some cursory reading and found that this error is generally related to hard disk failure, so I went ahead and ran chkdsk /f/r on both of my HDDs, which both came back clean. Once I booted back into Windows, I ran sfc /scannow and got no errors.

"Alright," I said to myself, "let's see what WinDbg has to say." So I opened up the minidump file in WinDbg and it spat this out at me:

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR (7a)
The requested page of kernel data could not be read in.  Typically caused by
a bad block in the paging file or disk controller error. Also see
KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR.
If the error status is 0xC000000E, 0xC000009C, 0xC000009D or 0xC0000185,
it means the disk subsystem has experienced a failure.
If the error status is 0xC000009A, then it means the request failed because
a filesystem failed to make forward progress.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffff6fb800083f8, lock type that was held (value 1,2,3, or PTE address)
Arg2: ffffffffc000000e, error status (normally i/o status code)
Arg3: 0000000033bb4880, current process (virtual address for lock type 3, or PTE)
Arg4: fffff7000107fff8, virtual address that could not be in-paged (or PTE contents if arg1 is a PTE address)

It blames volsnap.sys, but I have no idea how to proceed from here. If it listed a 3rd party driver, I'd try to update it or uninstall it or whatever, but since it's a Windows driver, that obviously points to a deeper problem. Can anyone else lend me some insight?

I have ran the requested program and attached the requested file. Thanks!

Edit: Don't laugh at my computer name. Been my computer name since I was a 10 year old skiddie :P

Hi MBD.

See the crash dump that you attached with your first post ... it is informative about the issue. Apparently it is disc HDD related issue.

Test both of your HDDs using Seatools, take both the short test and the long test. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use

Also, post screenshots of the both HDDs using CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World.

Let us know the results. We may have to take some further steps depending on the results.

Unfortunately, I fear I'll never have the chance to run those tests; I restarted my computer after enabling verifier.exe testing and Windows fails to boot every time. It tries, fails, re-tries, fails. This is either a result of the HDD failing or a result of verifier.exe stressing the drivers that were already causing failures too much. Either way, I'm pretty hosed. Anyone know how to make a Windows 7 disc from a bootable Linux CD (that's what I'm using to post with right now)?

Edit: got it to boot in Safe Mode, deleted all settings in Driver Verifier, and now when I boot to normal Windows, Windows loads nothing upon login. None of my desktop icons, no taskbar, nothing; attempting to CTRL+SHIFT+ESC yields an error message (0xC0000022). Malwarebytes, strangely, works. Nothing else does.

I can still boot into safe mode just fine.

Was able to system restore to right after I recovered from the BSODs and ran chkdsk. I will run the test right now.
