Windows 7: Getting BSOD / Think it might be related to my HDD.

Rectify a Damaged Hard Drive

Sometimes the cause of BSoD is a faulty hard disk. Most Windows operating systems have a diagnostic scan for the hard drive, and you need to run this to figure out the problem. Sometimes the operating system will encounter a problem where it is unable to read from the hard disk, and in such cases apart from the hard disk, you also need to check out the SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) terminator.

Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so, the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default. Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.

My PC has recently started erratic BSOD crashes after a year of bliss. I installed UBUNTU as second boot option and it seems to work normally. Would rather not just give up on Windows 7 - particularly as this is x64 version and UBUNTU is only x86 version; I also have some windows-only software...

BSOD perhaps GPU related
I'm running x64 bit 7 Home Premium on a Alienware M11x R2. I just reformatted (they give you a real 7 DVD) and exchanged drives for an SSD but I still get the BSODs. I only use the system for WoW, email, and to edit my pictures--so I don't have a large program base to troubleshoot--but it only...
