    Your minidump shows this:
    BugCheck 7A, {e1c539c8, c000000e, bf93028b, c8f0860}

    KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR (7a)
    The requested page of kernel data could not be read in. Typically caused by a bad block in the paging file or disk controller error. Also see KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR.
    If the error status is 0xC000000E, 0xC000009C, 0xC000009D or 0xC0000185, it means the disk subsystem has experienced a failure.
    If the error status is 0xC000009A, then it means the request failed because a filesystem failed to make forward progress.
    Arguments:
    Arg1: e1c539c8, lock type that was held (value 1,2,3, or PTE address)
    Arg2: c000000e, error status (normally i/o status code)
    Arg3: bf93028b, current process (virtual address for lock type 3, or PTE)
    Arg4: 0c8f0860, virtual address that could not be in-paged (or PTE contents if arg1 is a PTE address)

    Debugging Details:
    ------------------
    ERROR_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc000000e - A device which does not exist was specified.
    DISK_HARDWARE_ERROR: There was error with disk hardware


    This does not necessarily mean your hard drive is going bad. More probably it has a corrupted paging file. Try running chkdsk /f /r from a command prompt to fix disk errors.
