This has been the cause of my STOP 0x0000007F (0x0000000D) BSOD. Disabling this hasn't fixed it, and it's been there ever since I built this computer. How can I safely get rid of this?

Click start then run, type chkdsk /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter, reboot, it will take at least an hour to get to the desktop

Download, install and run HD Tune

FYI: I had this issue also with my 80GB IDE hard drive. So if you're assuming my SATA might be bad, it's likely not. Thanks for that link though!

The two main suggestions are hard drive or motherboard

It's most likely my motherboard. I wish I had the computer stores around me where I can test different parts - dumb unpopular Illinois!

If you don't mind opening the case, unplug it from the mains as it's worth using a torch to check there are no expanded bits

It sounds very like the motherboard, the particular board you have has alot of farily common problems. If the latest bios doesnt fix it, if its still in warranty i would RMA it.

PS your sig image is to big keep it under 16Kb.

My motherboard is within warranty. Althought nothing on Asus's site tells me what to do to RMA. It says to se my retailer where I got it from (NewEgg). I click Return Item in NewEgg's member section and it says that the only person I can RMA to is the manufacturer. So I have no idea where to send for a RMA.

Torch =|? What do you mean?

torch in UK probably means flashlight....In my world it is a propane fired soldering tool for plumbing.

Correct on the torch, though as it is under warranty ask the supplier on the phone so you get a direct answer about where to return it

Ok, well it turns out that when I start up my PC after no use overnight, the BSOD comes up before CCC loads. It happen 3 times, and all 3 were Video driver related, and Unknown device (which is my graphics card) driver.
