Windows 7: BSOD when running bittorrent overnight/possible related ext HDD issues

BSOD when running bittorrent overnight/possible related ext HDD issues

Warning: long text

Hello people of seven forums. I've recently made a new computer, with these specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
CPU: AMD FX-8320
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 R2.0
Memory: 8 GB GeIL DRAGON 1600 (2x4GB)
Graphics Card: Sapphire R9 280X Dual-X
Hard Drives: 1 TB Internal Seagate Barracuda, 1 TB Seagate External
PSU: Corsair VS550 80+ Gold
Case: Sentry GS-6000
Coolin: DeepCool GAMMAXX 300
WiFi adapter: D-Link DWA-510

Although the problem is related to this computer, I think I need to backup a little, since my external HDD has been experiencing problems for a long time.

About 10 months ago, I was running Windows 7 x64 on my old computer. The Windows was experiencing problems so I decided to upgrade to Windows 8. I did so, and ever since, I'd been experiencing problems with ownership/permissions on the external HDD. I unhooked it while installing the Windows, just to be sure. Anyway, I did fix some of these problems, but I would still run into some files that I couldn't modify. Anyway, after getting this new build, I decided to move some of the stuff from the ext HDD to the new internal one since it was getting full. I moved about 130 GB of data, but it crashed at the end of the moving because of the said permissions, it couldn't delete some of the leftover files. I had to pull out the device and I spent several minutes minutes fixing it (changing permissions/ownership, etc) on occasion it would just crash when opening the folder. Also, on the old computer, sometimes while downloading on the external HDD with utorrent, I would get a "can't find specified location" error and I had to pull the power on the ext HDD and reconnect to fix it. There's the HDD problem.

On the new computer, I did get a BSOD at day one but that was probably due to old VGA drivers. Now, all drivers are up to date, except perhaps the WiFi adapter since I couldn't find new drivers for it anywhere. This BSOD while using utorrent has been going on for many days. Every time, I leave the computer downloading overnight (I download on the external HDD), I wake up to a restarted computer due to BSOD. I though it might be a result of me setting to hiberante after the downloads completed, but not checking that didn't help either (since I've left it to download during the day while I was out and it didn't crash). Last night, I was downloading the source SDK from Steam and I put up a couple of other downloads with bittorrent. I woke and, unlike most nights, I didn't find the "after BSOD" error window, but it was obvious it had crashed. Steam or bittorrent weren't running and bittorrent had only downloaded a very small portion of the file. I tried to open bittorrent but it wouldn't run. I tried killing the process with task manager, but it did nothing. Steam ran fine though. I tried rebooting... it got stuck at "shutting down" and I had to hard reset. After booting up, my external HDD wasn't recognized (didn't show up on my computer) and I had to pull the plug. After getting recognized, Windows said it had problem and it needed to be fixed, so I let it fix it.

And here's the whole story.

I don't think I've ever seen such outdated ethernet/networking drivers on a Windows 7 system before.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them :)
