One of my computers got a blue screen of death last night, it said fatal error and said it was doing memory dump, I powered down and back up a couple of times and it said on black screen no OS found. After a few more times it came back after thinking about it for a long time. Its back up right now but the end could be near. I thought the hard drive was making some strange sounds but could not pin point it, this all happened in about 3 minutes. With this little it of information would you say that its probably the hard drive going out? It has been running a little slow at times like when you type the letters might be a tad bit behind showing up as your typing along, this made me think maybe the processor was going out. Right now its running fine and no problems, but I thought I would just prepare for what's coming.

Well you need to give us the error code to give the exact details of the blue screen of death, as there are several reasons for the blue screen and the error code helps to identify the relevant one.Next time if you see the blue screen don't forget to note down the error code a well.

Unfortunatley not as there is something very wrong with my PC that goes far beyond the BSOD.

As Defuse 3388 suggested, the codes are vital for tech support.

E.g:


0x837AB00 0x000000c4 0x000000c7 0x83067AAB

You have to manually write these down.
