The last month or so I've been having severe crash problems. Mostly the crashes occur while playing games by this is not the always the case. Last night it crashes and would not recover upon reboot, presuming after I changed the the error reporting to disable and notify. I finally got back in after running the disk check multiple times and restoring the system to Saturday night's checkpoint. Unfortunately, I'm not too savvy as far as crash logs go and need some help determining the culprit. I did manage to see an error last night that had something to do with hardware, but I was not able to save it prior to the system freezing up.
I have taken a few steps in trying to narrow down any hardware faults by running the ram individually, getting a new power supply, cleaning the interior of the case, applying new thermal paste etc etc.

I have an event view open and I see a few errors possibly showing a hard disk failure, but again, Im not too sure.
Here's what Ive got so far in the viewer.


The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk0\D.

These are just a few varying examples. I have also attached a hijackthis log, but could not attach the memorydump on file.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks.

It appears from that error that your hard disk controller on the motherboard is going bad. It could also be the cable or the hard drive itself too.

Easy enough, I'll get a new drive and mirror everything over to it and see how that works.
I'll keep you posted.
Thanks!
