I'd start with updating your ide/ahci controller driver, OR if you have the latest, reinstall them.
Best you delete them in device manager, and check the box 'delete files too'. Reboot and let them reinstall automatically.

By the looks of the event log alone, since beginning of March you have had one single error repeating over and over, tracing to your controller drivers.

Not sure yet at this point IF that is related to your issue, but it is a good place to start...

Also, looking in the hotfix log, you have a few patches installed that are a bit iffy.
You can check them all on my dig. life forums, though many are superseeded, so it is unsure at this point IF they are causing any issues...

As example, I had the KB2992611 installed which gave me stability issues and Schannel errors in the eventlog.
Uninstalling that one, AND deleting the 4 faulty ciphers in the registry fixed it eventually...but to show, uninstalling that one still left those cipher keys behind in the registry, which was not supposed to be happening...bad M$.

Most serious issues being 'echoed' by many users, the past year or so have mainly been caused by faulty updates, and general update headaches. Not saying it's the case here, but very possible none the less.

Hi pciinc,

Welcome to the 7forums :)

Please update, reinstall or remove StorageCraft.
Its drivers is being mentioned in multiple different crashes, not a good sign.

BSOD playing almost any game. Happens periodically.
Ever since I've had this laptop I've had some periodic blue screens. I've never been able to pin down exactly what the causes are, as they seem to be a variety of things. I really hope I don't have to reinstall Windows because this laptop did not come with the disk :( Minidump files attached....

Random BSOD crashes periodically
After upgrading from Visa 64bit to Windows 7 64bit, I average 3-4 BSODs a week. I have ran memory tests and a disk check, both of which completed with no issue.
