OK, the BSODs are back. 2 today.

Event viewer shows red Event ID 7000, and text 'The PDIHWCTL service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified.'

It also shows Event ID 11, and text 'The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk4\DR4.'

How do I tell what is Harddisk4? In Computer Management, Disk4 shows up as my external drive. Would that be it?

Any ideas on that?
