Windows 7: Random BSOD occurring, HTPC - no new hardware.

Random BSOD occurring, HTPC - no new hardware.

Hello all,

I've recently started to experience a BSOD problem I cannot quite put my finger on. It does not save a log, even though I have it set to save in /Minidump.

I have not changed or added any hardware, or software. I completely wiped Windows and started over from scratch, using the most up to date drivers. However they're still occurring, I've restored my BIOS settings to all default settings. I am thinking it was a Hard drive issues, I've ran CHKDSK all both drives - I know my Windows drive was clean, I was not around to see the completion of of my slave drive - I was running CHKDSK via Safemode and came back to a BSOD.

I've attached a administrator Eventlog, but am unable to make much sense of it.

The last BSOD I saw read this;



STOP: 0X0000007A (0XFFFFFF6FC4000099C0, 0XFFFFFFFFC000000E, 0X00000001E7588860, 0XFFFFF88001338890)

NTFS.SYS - Address FFFFF88001338890 base at  FFFFF880012450000, Datestamp 4ce792f9
I've ran Memory test already, no errors where found. The next step I am going to try is too unplug my Slave drive and see what happens without it. I've already re-seated both drives and memory sticks.

Any help and suggestions would be much appreciated.


EDIT: Attached diagnostic tool zip.

I've started to get BSOD when loading TouchBios, an application included with my Gigabyte mother board. These crashes have saved in /Minidump, unlike the others. I'm not sure if they're related in anyway.
