Ok, so recently when scanning my disk (Through Advanced System Care) it started acting up a bit and it BSoD'd. I figure probably because I had a lot of stuff running. When I tried it again, it did the same thing. This Time when I tried it, I used AVG's PC Tune Up and it BSoD'd yet again.

My question is how I can determine what is wrong with it, and how to fix it.
Thanks for your time.
