I have had a problem for a while where I get the "blue screen of death" with an error message (can't remember it off hand, something like 0x00000007. A friend directed me to the MS site, where that error message was listed as being to do with kernels, which he said was really bad, and I should format and reinstall windows.
I've now done this, but the error has started coming up again, although not as frequently. He says my HD is probably knackered, and I'll need a new one. Is he right? The HD also gets incredibly noisy from time to time, even if nothing major is running.
The checks he did:
CPU temperature was fine
Checked cables were plugged in
Checked RAM was seated correctly.
Any help would be appreciated.
