Every so often I am getting the "blue screen of death". Usually when I'm watching videos like on Youtube. It'll freeze, the screen turns blue with yellow jibberish and I have to restart. I am assuming it's my hard drive going bad. If my hard drive is failing is there a way to fix it? I have my Windows CD and will reinstall if that will cure the problem. If not, is there anything I can do other than purchase a new hard drive?

I'm not a computer whiz by any means so any help is appreciated!

Hi, first step...let's see what your error messages might reveal :thumbsup:, then we might have a better idea of what's going on.

Download/install BlueScreenView, http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click BlueScreenView.exe file.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Appears to me that your video and audio drivers are culprits...what makes you think that your hard drive is faulty?

I would uninstall the ATI video drivers and the audio drivers (using Device Manager) and then install fresh ones and see if that stops the BSODs.
