For a while now, my computer has been crashing at (seemingly) random times. Sometimes I can do a day without crashing, other times I get the BSOD twice within an hour and at other times I get the BSOD during the Windows startup logo. The crash seems to occur more frequently while running more demanding programs (such as video games) than using something like Chrome to browse the internet.
Almost every BSOD, the error code is 0x7a (Kernel Data Inpage Error), but at times I've also gotten the 0x7b error.
I've attached the two required zip files, and here's my computer details:
· OS - Windows 8.1, 8, 7, Vista ?
Windows 7 (Ultimate)
· x86 (32-bit) or x64 ?
· What was original installed OS on system?
I had already re-installed Windows a time before (over a year before encounting this problem), I think both installations were Windows 7 Ultimate, although the first may have been Windows 7 Home Premium.
· Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)?
The OS I used to run on my HDD (before buying my SSD) was pre-installed, all OS'es I installed on the SSD are from a DVD.
· Age of system (hardware)
My motherboard, CPU, and Graphics Card are a little over half a year old. My memory is between half a year and a year old. My SSD (with OS on it) is nearly two years old and my HDD (extra data space) is a little over two years old.
· Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS?
I have re-installed my OS the same day I wrote this post. I had the problem before re-installing Windows and still have it now.
Intel i7-4790k (not OC'd)
· Video Card
GTX 970 (Single card)
· MotherBoard - (if NOT a laptop)
MS-7916 (MSI Z97 GAMING 7)
· Power Supply - brand & wattage (skip if laptop)
Cooler Master V1000
· System Manufacturer
- Built my own PC buying individual parts.
· Exact model number (if laptop, check label on bottom)
· Laptop or Desktop?
SSD (OS) - Samsung 840 EVO (250GB)
HDD (Data) - Seagate ST3000DM001(-1CH166)
Some more details:
I came across this page here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/553812/kernel-data-inpage-error-win-81/
As suggested, I scanned both my drives using SeaTools for Windows with a Short Generic Test; they both passed with no issues.
I had already run CHKDSK on both drives before re-installing my OS (with /f /r), neither of the two had any issues.

I hope someone out here will be able to help, as I'm starting to go insane from this all. If I need to provide more details, please let me know. I'll perform Step 6. of the posting instructions after posting this. (Edit: after looking into these steps, they're pretty time consuming. I won't be able to do this straight away)
Thanks in advance!
