Random BSOD after HDD replacement

Hi all,

I have been having random BSOD after I changed my Hitachi HDD for a WD Black HDD yesterday. Initially I thought that the old Hitachi HDD is causing the blue screen to occur but it seems like after the replacement, im still having some problems with my laptop.

Laptop Model: Lenovo Thinkpad T400
OS: Windows 7 Professional 32bit

Please help me out here, thanks alot in advance.

MS Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1

Please uninstall DAEMON Tools it is known to BSOD Windows

msconfig - boot faster and crash less.

1. Click on the Windows 7 start icon in the bottom left corner of your screen.

2. Type msconfig in the search box and then either press enter on your keyboard or double-click on the msconfig program that appears in the search results.

3. Windows 7 will launch Microsoft's System Configuration Utility. Click on the Startup tab.

4. This takes you to a page with a list of "startup items." Startup items are programs that are automatically loaded every time you turn on your computer. Some startup programs are absolutely necessary e.g Anti Virus, others are simply a waste of RAM.

5. Click on the OK button.

6. A message will pop up telling you that you must restart your computer before these changes will take effect. Click on "Restart" and your computer will automatically reboot.

7. That's it! Your computer should now boot faster and crash less.

If you ever want to turn on any of the startup items you disabled with msconfig , just run msconfig again.DAEMON Tools is known to BSOD Windows
