This problem started maybe 6 months ago. At random times, I would get a blue screen. I could get one, wait 3 days and BAM another BSOD. I did several chkdsk /r and that didn't work. About a week ago, being so tired of these BSODs, I reformatted my main hard drive (not my secondary hard drive).

I thought that would be the end of it but it wasn't. I got the same BSOD on May 3rd (Tuesday) then 5 days later I get another one. I don't think it's even a program. I mean the one I got recently happened when I turned on the computer. Here's what the event viewer has down for May 3rd's BSOD:

I actually went to the Recovery Console to do another chkdsk /r. I got some line saying "It appears the volume contains one or more unrecoverable problems."

This doesn't look good, the computer seems stable most of the time.

Any suggestions, please? I'm tired of BSODs. I don't want to continue on from now and then a few days later get another [bleep] BSOD.

Sounds like you may have a faulty hard drive.
you may want to check out this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315266
I would back everything up and replace the hard disk as soon as possible.

My secondary hard drive is a Maxtor Serial ATA one. I can't seem to remember what the primary hard drive's brand was, hardware device management says
"ST312002 6AS SCSI Disk Device."

its either a seagate or maxtor then, both models usually have the ST, check when you get the chance, on the seagate website (not sure where exactly) they have an application you burn to a cd, burn it to cd and boot from it it will scan and attemp to fix the harddrive

I used the Seatools but it said there were some errors, I'm just gonna buy a new SATA hard drive and hopefully that'll fix the problem.

Uh, I'm not really good with computers... sorry. Could you explain what those are and how I would find out on my motherboard?

Yeah. It does, anything I need to know or...?

Edit:
It's strange, I can still use the computer and do everything I want. Go on AIM, surf the web, play World of Warcraft. But I do want those occasional BSODs to stop, if you guys think it's the hard drive I'll get it replaced. It is 3 years old or so.
