Windows 7: BSOD and Stop Errors Becoming More Frequent

Unfortunately after looking good for a long time I just had another BSOD. Once again, it didn't even say it had created a dump file, but it did say it was an issue with volmgrx.sys.

Would it be possible for you to give me more info on how to do the 'disconnect the SSD and vanilla install' method?

What it means is a Windows installation without any program or something, just run Windows Update and install the updates but don't install anything else.

Sorry I think I'll need baby stepping through this. When do I do the windows update? Because I can't get onto my PC while the SSD is disconnected.

Create a partition on your hard drive, shut down and disconnect 1 cable from the SSD. Boot into your installation media and follow these instructions. Clean Install Windows 7 . Install Windows on the partition you just created. As Axe0 stated, don't install anything but run the Windows updates until there are no more.

If you have unallocated space on your hard drive, use that to create a partition on your hard drive. If you do have a partition on your hard drive, go to disk management, select your hard drive, right click it and select shrink partition. In the amount box put 51,200 (that's in MB. it is 50 GB.) then select that space and right click it and select new simple partition and continue. Shut down the computer and boot into the installation media and when you get to the where do you want to install windows, select that new 50 GB partition and select OK. Let Windows install, then run all Windows updates (there will be a lot of them). Install nothing except Microsoft Security Essentials (Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows). Then run it that way for a while and see how it runs.

0x7a and 0xf4 are usually always HDD/SSD related hardware errors. Since you have already replaced with a new SSD, and receive the same? errors, the issue must be either the SATA connectors or motherboard.

You've checked the SATA connectors, so logically that leaves the motherboard.

My recommendation would be to purchase a brand new SATA connector, and connect the new HDD to one of the unused SATA ports on the motherboard.

Okay I left it running overnight with all the Windows updates and didn't get a crash.

No, it was the HDD I replaced, so the SSD could still be the issue.

Good. Give it plenty of time to be sure you have found the problem.

How long you leave it is up to you. You know your computer better than we do. However, I would leave it long enough until you feel very confident that there is no more stability problem. Once you do that, you need to decide whether to buy another SSD or whatever you decide to do. I would install programs in a very slow fashion and test afterwards to make sure it was not a program or driver causing the problem. Hopefully that will resolve your problems. At this point it appears the SSD was your issue. By installing programs slowly and testing, if it was a program causing the issue, you will quickly know which one. I would find another AV other than Bullguard though.
