    Hi all,

    Need some help urgently.

    Since last Sunday, I have been getting BSOD - Kernel Data Inpage Error. I do not know what happened. It is occuring every 20-40 minutes everyday and its very disrupting.

    Here is what happen:
    Using computer normally like surfing the internet etc, I wasnt even gaming. Then all of the sudden, the screen locks up for like 3 to 5 seconds, before the BSOD appears then it auto reboot. The BSOD appear so briefly that I can only catch KERNAL DATA INPAGE on screen. Immediately after the auto reboot right after the Windows screen and before my login screen there will be an error message mentioned something about 'cannot find reboot' or something along these lines. I couldnt do anything at that screen. I would have to manually off and on my computer again before it will boot up normally. Then the cycle repeats after about 20-40 minutes of usage. There is no Windows Help message like 'Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown' etc.

    I am suspecting it may be due to my wireless adapter as my wireless adapter stopped working after a few times of BSOD occurs. I would have to troubleshoot to manually on the adapter. I have checked Device Manager, no exclamation marks on any devices.

    I do not recalled doing anything out of the norm prior to the event of BSOD appearing other than the usual Windows Update. I recalled updating my Nvidia drivers but since the BSOd I have rollback to the previous driver but BSOD still occur.

    I am baffled and I seriously hope that its not some hardware problem as its a laptop, just pass my 12 months warranty only.

    If anything helps, I am on Windows 7 64 bits.

    Hi,

    Good news. BSOD stops.

    Bad news. Random lock up after a few minutes of usage. Locks up a few seconds. Then its fine. Then locks up a few seconds again. I went to My Computer and noticed that my drives are all missing. Except their name such as OS (C:), DATA (D:). Then nothing else respond. No matter what I click no respond. Mouse cursor is still moving as per my hands. CTRL ALT DELETE, some message saying that the OS cannot be found etc. Then go to a black screen 'Reboot and select propert boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key'.

    Nothing works and so the cycle begin. So far it does to me 3 times..

    Hi. I've seen your link but I cant determine what brand my laptop HDD is. I tried going to Device Manager but no brand is shown. I can boot up my PC. I am guessing HDD load fine. Perhaps you can help me identify the brand. I dont really know what you meant by 'd/load and run the h/drive makers diagnostic utility on the h/drive'..
