BSOD, hard drive failed showing in my computer once and then came back

BSOD everyday after noticing that one of the hard drive failed to show in "my computer" after i did a diagnostic it went back. It hasnt disappeared since but i kept on getting bsods. It is the D: drive. My C: and E: is one separate hard disk. This is a company issued laptop and doesnt have any access to IT support from them now. I did error checking on the D: drive and it mentioned something about replacing a bad cluster. Thanks.

I couldnt get the SF diagnostic tool to work because i keep on getting errors on maybe five of the individual buttons so i resorted to the debug tool. Thanks. Please help.

Are you overclocking? As you are getting BSODs, you should stop overclocking and run all the hardware components like CPU, GPU and RAM to their default settings.

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.

Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.

Stress test the CPU.

Is the computer hot? Report us the heat of the computer after a couple of hours of your normal usage. Upload a screenshot of the summery tab of Speccy. Alternatively, you can publish a Speccy snapshot too: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs .

Also search for any possible BIOS update in Dell for your model.
