Hi about 6-7 months ago I was starting to get a BSOD a couple times a day than it stopped up until about a week ago now I get BSOD usually when I am playing a game and the computer still starts up and usable.
The error codes I have been getting are : STOP: 0x000007A and sometimes 0x00000f4.
I'm not sure how to fix it or if it can be fixed i'm almost ready to give up and just buy a new computer but figured I would try here first before I do. I haven't made any changes in hardwre to my computer except for a nvidia geforce 650ti video card that I got someone else to install it so don't think anything went wrong there.
I also ran a diagnostic test when starting up my computer and it said the CD-ROM(i think) had failed here is what it said.
Testing: WDC WD10EADS-65L5B1 (WD-WCAU4D124296)
Drive Error code : BIOHD- 0
Error: A smart test failed on the drive.
Suggestion : Back up your important data.
Suggestion : Please contact HP Support.
Not sure if it is the hard drive or cd rom, it has a picture that has a cd inside of the cd tray that pops out of your computer. Could that be what is failing and crashing the computer?
Thanks for your time.
