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
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.
Arg1: 00000020, lock type that was held (value 1,2,3, or PTE address)
Arg2: c000009d, error status (normally i/o status code)
Arg3: 8671c9d4, current process (virtual address for lock type 3, or PTE)
Arg4: 00000000, virtual address that could not be in-paged (or PTE contents if arg1 is a PTE address)

I installed the Storage Manager as per your recommendation
Was this showing as an error and was this causing the problem?
It reinstalled my DVD and an ST device.

I shut down the computer overnight and I did not recieve any BSOD so far today.

BTW, I have disabled sleep mode thinking this may have triggered the problem since it only happens while computer is unattended.
Could this help?

The crashes were showing a possible hard disk controller problem. That driver is for the hard disk controller. That is why I recommended updating it or re-installing it. It's possible your driver was either out of date or corrupted.

As for disabling sleep, only time will tell if it helped. If it helps right now, we will not know if it was the sleep disabling step or the controller driver update that resolved the problem. You may need to do some testing with sleep disabled and then with it enabled and see whether it has an effect.

I have not left the computer unattended for a while. I will try later or over the weekend to see if the crashes cease.

Hope this solves the problems.... (keeping fingers crossed)

So far so good. No crashes reported. I have shut the computer over the weekend and it is turned on 1 hour before I arrive to allow network access.

OK this week... let's hope for the best.

Have you had a chance to test with sleep enabled, as well? I remember you had turned it off and were going to test with it enabled and disabled and see if it had an effect on the system stability.
