Windows 7: BSOD when playing games and/or when laptop gets hot

BSOD when playing games and/or when laptop gets hot

First, of all i read the instructions in posting BSOD, the problem is can't find the zipped folder (not in the desktop) though it says it is already made, but i will attached my minidump file that i zipped Attachment 369968.

Also I'm having problem with my minidumps file this is the only time that my laptop was able to generate a minidump file.

Regarding the problem my old laptop an Asus K42J has been getting BSOD. I tried performing CHKDSK but did not find any problem, i also perform an sfc /scannow (not sure is this the integrity check sorry not quite knowledgeable with this things), i also use a memtest but i didn't encounter with any problems using it, also furmark, i tried doing a repair install (not sure if that's the proper term) but i still get BSOD. I've been getting it for quite a time now but i tend to ignore it just got frequent these days.

my common BSOD code are 0x0000000f4, 0x000000007a, ntfs.sys

Hiya and welcome to SevenForums!
BugCheck 7A, {fffff6fc4000c820, ffffffffc0000056, 9290860, fffff880019042b0}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+37bba )
Run sfc /scannow and chkdsk /r.
Install the latest updates from Windows Update.

Do the exact same steps for chkdsk /r but instead of typing in sfc /scannow type chkdsk /r.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You said that you had some 0xF4:s, this could mean that there's a virus, a failing harddrive, failing RAM stick/s. Run SeaTools(DO NOT RUN FOR SSDS) SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use Also run MemTest86+ for 8 passes. It must be MemTest86+. RAM - Test with Memtest86+ Scan your computer for viruses using Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

thank you for your reply, i did all of them i have problem with updating my windows though.

I passed my MemTest86+ for 8 passes (can't believe that it took more than half a day), no problems detected. No malware, virus etc. was detected after scanning with malwarebytes, and panda antivirus, done sfc too positive result as well.

I do have a problem with Seatools the scan did not finish wasn't able to see what caused it to stop.

does that mean i need a new HDD?

Yes you did, Windows Update failed, a small hint and SeaTools failed which means that the HDD is failing and needs to be replaced.
