Hello to all member of forum and thanks for time that You reserved to read my post.
As I have said in title of topic,I 'm having problems with BSOD ( Blue Screen Of Death )

I 'm using Windows XP SP3 Proffesional with these componets:

Processor: Intel Pentium IV E2180 @2.00GHz
Graphic: Nvidia Geforce 8400GS ( IT somewhere says that is 512MB and GPU-Z says that is 256MB)
RAM: 2GB Kingstone
HDD: Western Digital 2500AAKS ( 250 GB)

My problem is annoying BSOD which apperas on every day,or it would be better to say every hour.
It apperas in random situations like: when playing games,surfing internet,listening music etc...
I was redirected here from Section "I AM INFECTED,WHAT TO DO?" and here is link of my topic:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic451558.html/

Please reply anyone who have time to help me finding solution of my problem,I would appriciate.

P.S. Sorry for my bad English.

Pertinent data from malware topic:

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
STOP: 0x0000000A (0xF8AF6CBC,0x00000001,0x0000000,0x80505F17)

Today at first time of all I get some weird BSOD error :/
"STOP: c000007b
Unknown Hard Error
Beginning dump of physical memory"

Here is more errors I have got pictured on my mobile:
"KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
STOP: 0x00000007A (0xC05BF1D8,0xC000000E,0xB7E3B642,0x37CE4860)
*** ftdisk.sys - Address B7E3B642 base at B7E310000, DateStamp 3b7d8419
Beginning dump of physical memory"


"KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR
*** STOP: 0x0000077 (0xC00000E,0xC00000E,0x00000000)
Beginning dump of physical memory"

Maybe this information would be usefull for You.

I 'm playing Counter-Strike 1.6 (trought STEAM) every day,which is low requirement game,
and it starts chopping and lagging,especialy when I get in "smoke granade" which is rendered by graphic card...
Almost every time I get in "smoke" my comp freeze up for few seconds and sometimes freeze and show BSOD.
And everything is cool when my comp restarts for about 15 minutes,and chopping starts againg...

It is making me freak,please,but please help .

The QUICK TEST is NOT an adequate test of the hard drive. Please run the extended test and report the result.

The preferable option would be to use the utility run from a bootable CD rather than use the Windows version so if you have any trouble running the test, burn a bootable CD and test with that:
We need to run the extended test.

It has been an unnecessarily long journey for you to get to this point, but you have now found the cause of the problem: The hard drive is failing, and according to the WD utility, is not repairable.

Purchase a new hard drive and perform a clean installation of Windows, and all should be well.

If you wish to attempt to salvage the failing hard drive, in the hope of continuing to use it, let me know and we can give it a try. No promises!

I would like to try salvage of my drive.

Let's see what happens.

You will need to create two bootable CDs.
Create the bootable CDs firstly. Then use dban to wipe the hard drive.

Are you able to successfully wipe the hard drive with dban?
  • If not ... it's time to give up on the attempt.
If dban completes successfully, then test the hard drive with the WD utility run from the bootable CD.
  • (Run QUICK test followed by EXTENDED test.)
  • What is the result?
If one or either of these tests fail, it may be worthwhile running dban once again, followed by re-testing.

Let me know how things unfold

=============================
Download dban (Darik's Boot and Nuke):

"Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot disk that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction."

If you do not already have a suitable burning program for writing .ISO images to disc ...
  • Download and install ImgBurn.
    Ensure that you UN-check the box agreeing to install the Ask toolbar during the installation.
  • Place a new (blank) CD disc in the drive tray.
  • Choose Write image file to disc.
    • Under Source, click on the Browse button: Navigate to and select the .ISO file that you wish to burn.
    • Place a check-mark in the box beside Verify.
  • Click Posted Image

    When the CD has been burned and verified as successful, it will be bootable.

Boot from the CD, and with ONLY the one hard drive connected to the system ...
Warning: This will completely wipe ALL drives connected to the system!
Type autonuke at the prompt and press the <ENTER> key.
Allow to complete.
Be patient: It may take some considerable time, depending on the size of the HDD.
