Jumpers? I don't know what that is.

It's SATA, right? If so, you probably don't need to worry about anything. I've seen jumpers on a SATA drive only once; must be some proprietary motherboard or SATA controller needed it.

Here is the back of an ATA drive:



If you have a jumper on your SATA drive, try removing it.

Okay, here is an update;

I've spent the recent time in reformatting my computer. The good news is; I don't get BSOD as much. I just received one moments ago, with no specific cause. If you would like; I will send you the files if you need.

The SATA Jumper, I don't have it seems. I'm really thinking, of dual-boot with uBuntu.

EDIT: It seems that applications just crash with no reason, it just crashes.

My only suggestion would be to install the latest chipset drivers: Intel® Driver Update Utility

If that doesn't help, I'm afraid I'm out of ideas. I would assume it's a motherboard/BIOS/CPU compatibility problem, so I would recommend upgrading the motherboard.

I can only thank you for what you have done, the link you gave me; it didn't show any updates for it. I'm afraid that is all I can do.

Just to inform you, I recently got my first BSOD with this new Windows; something about a DRIVER_IQAL or something, I can't remember.

Also; uBuntu won't let me install it neither, it gives me errors. I think, I am going to check the computer over for the next week and then if I can't seem to get it working I shall buy a new motherboard and get it re-built.

You may consider testing the hard drive, if Ubuntu can't install. Try the DOS version of SeaTools.

Right I did the DOS test on SeaTools; It came with a good result in a way: The basic test actually failed, some sectors are broken maybe.

I'm in the process of doing the Long Test, so I hope that brings back more results and hopefully some repairs.

That is most likely a hard drive problem then. It may or may not be related to your problem at hand, but either way, I suggest that you backup your data and RMA the drive.

Is there a chance that it might actually be the Hard Drive causing the problem?

Also, could you explain what RMA is?

RMA - Return Materials Authorization. What I meant is to send the hard drive back to the manufacturer, in accordance with the directions given.

It may be the cause of the problem with Ubuntu, but whether it is the problem that is causing the BSODs remains to be seen.
