I use Windows Vista Home Basic and a Dell desktop computer.

I think I started to run into problems after doing a disk defragmentation. Can using that utility harm your hard disk? I get blue screens all the time now. It sucks.

The blue screen messages say:
"BAD_POOL_HEADER"
"MEMEORY_MANAGMENT"
"IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"

From the way I looked it up everyone gets these and they could mean anything. I will post the minidump files in another post because right now it is not letting me put them in a ZIP folder cause it will tell me that there is no read permission. I will try it in safe mode.

Oh yeah. It might be helpful if I pointed out one time I was using it and the screen went off and the hard drive started beeping in sets of 4's like: "BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP" "BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP" "BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP" Could have been sets of 3's, but I am pretty sure it was 4's.
