Windows 7: Random Blue screens after installing windows 7 and new hard disk

Random Blue screens after installing windows 7 and new hard disk

A couple of months ago i installed a new hard disk along with windows 7. Ever since then been suffering from 5-7 blue screens on start-up before my computer calms down and never crashes again until reset. Not very familiar with technical PC stuff so might need some help doing technical things.
I have attached the dump files from the diagnostic tool.
Help would be appreciated, thanks!

You have supplied a lot of crash dumps, but not some other necessary information as per the BSOD posting instructions.

Anyway, checked the crash dumps of today only. Three different bugchecks, but it is giving a chance of three alternatives (collectively, not separately).
  • HDD related
  • Memory related
  • Virus infection
► The strongest possibility is a HDD is malfunctioning. Check it physically. It is screwed up properly? Are all the screws utilized and all those are tightly screwed? Are the sata and power cables properly connected? Change the sata cables. Also apply those cables in different ports in the motherboard.

Then plan for a HDD check. Take the HDD manufacturer's disc check tool and test if the HDD is in a good condition.

► Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

► Ataport.sys is the staorge controller, but most vulnerable to a special kind of malware called rootkit. Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Let us know the results.

BugCheck A, {a8, 2, 1, fffff80002f05622}

Probably caused by : ataport.SYS ( ataport!IdePortTickHandler+3f )

Followup: MachineOwner

BugCheck 3B, {c0000005, fffff80002e913d3, fffff88008eaa020, 0}

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiCheckForConflictingNode+13 )

Followup: MachineOwner
BugCheck 24, {1904fb, fffff880022d5ba8, fffff880022d5400, fffff88001251ef7}

Probably caused by : Ntfs.sys ( Ntfs!NtfsAcquirePagingResourceExclusive+27 )

Sorry for the long reply. OK so I did the HDD check, memtest86+ and the rootkit test and everything seemed fine. I've only had one crash since I ran all the tests so I must be doing something right. I have attached the bluescreen i had to the post.
As for the information here is some information about my pc:

Manufacturer: Dell
Processor: AMD athlon II X2 250 Processor (2CPUs), ~3.0GHz
Memory: 4.00GB
Graphics card: NVIDIA Geforce GT 630

This is a very common bugcheck.  Usually the exception address pinpoints
the driver/function that caused the problem.  Always note this address
as well as the link date of the driver/image that contains this address.
Some common problems are exception code 0x80000003.  This means a hard
coded breakpoint or assertion was hit, but this system was booted
/NODEBUG.  This is not supposed to happen as developers should never have
hardcoded breakpoints in retail code, but ...
If this happens, make sure a debugger gets connected, and the
system is booted /DEBUG.  This will let us see why this breakpoint is
Arg1: ffffffffc0000005, The exception code that was not handled
Arg2: fffff88000efaeac, The address that the exception occurred at
Arg3: fffff88002fed4a8, Exception Record Address

Need to know the graphics environment. And, Storport.sys is still suspect. Need to know more about it too. Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file.
  1. Click on the start button
  2. Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
  3. File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
  4. Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
  5. Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
Better you post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.
