Windows 7: Sudden crashing; no BSOD

What kind of report are you looking for? The jcgriff one? I don't mean to be dense, but I thought that was only for BSOD.

I ran these tests immediately after my latest crash, this one precipitated by running iTunes with the visualizer on and Chrome at the same time; after about 20 minutes, it abruptly crashed.

Have you experienced any more crashes?

Found this in your log. It appeared right after you did a startup repair

Just as suspected from the beginning, it looks like you have some hard drive issues. As the error report says, please run a CHKDSK.

No, I haven't had any more crashes since the last one mentioned here. The way I've been avoiding them is by not taxing my video card (i.e., not using YouTube or playing games). I would not like this situation to continue indefinitely.

I mentioned it once before, but I'll mention it again: I have run the hard drive utility provided by the manufacturer (Seagate). It did discover 20-30 bad sectors and claimed to have repaired them.

I also ran Check Disk a few days ago. It did not, however, provide me with the longer readout shown in the screenshot in that link. It said something along the lines of "disk is clean" and continued right along with bootup.

I will attempt to run it now, though.

I would like for you to continue using your computer that caused the crashes. That way we can try and figure out what's causing it.

I ran Check Disk. I wasn't able to stay in the room the entire time, but at some point in phase 4 of 5, the computer crashed. On a reboot, I got to the Starting Windows screen, and it crashed. On the next two reboots, I attempted to start into Safe Mode; both times I crashed while trying to select the option. On the final reboot, I tried to go to Startup Repair and it crashed while loading files.

Is that it for this hard drive?

I have had crashs and it was because my power supply was too small after installing a 580 video card. Whats your PSU rated and have you installed any new hardware prior to the crash. My pc would only crash while running Mafia too so it may seem like it only happens everyonce in a while when you open a program which may push your psu over its rating
