In the last day or so, I've gotten BSODs. Twice when leaving my system idle with bittorrent open, and a few times trying to burn a high-data DVD (the same file)
As the BSOD comes up, all I can make out is "Memory Mangement" before I get a reboot.
I also get lock-ups ocassionally, where the process light on my tower will stop flickering and remain still until I hit the three-finger salute a couple of times. This snaps the system out of it's lock-up and opens the process manager where nothing seems out of place.
Before the problems started, AVG Email scanner reported that a connection from the UK was trying to connect...Freaked me out, so I restarted my system. However, I've left my system running through the night with Bitlord open to finish a download, the next day I'd find that either Bitlord had shut down, or the system had crashed and restarted...I'm going to need to burn DVDs to meet a deadline by the end of the week, so I seriously hope this problem doesn't persist. Any suggestions?
I've taken "Auto Restart" off, so next time I get the BSOD, I'll be able to transscribe the error message.
I ran a Microsoft Memory Diagnostic with 7 passes and there was no error.
But still problems. Burning a DVD in Nero, things are fine up until 50% and then the program just exits. Nero is still open, but the actual burning window just closes and the DVD is stuck in the drive until I reboot and eject it.
I tried burning a DVD again in Padus Disc Juggler. Got to 52%, the the cache went down to 0% and I got a lock-up. Ctrl-alt-deleted it and it started up again, got a further 1% before I got a BSOD and:
and then under that NTFS.sys
I'm beginning to think it's a HD problem. I have 2 harddrives, one of them just for media (music, movies, TV series' etc) and I've realized that when using Bitorrent, it was downloading to this drive and when I burnt DVDs, the data was from that drive.
If this is the case, what can I do? Do I need a new HD?
Please note that my other HD is partitioned, 50gb for Windows XP and other programs and another 150GB for my video editing software and video footage. I seriously cannot afford to format that drive because I have a deadline to meet and can't lose all the software and video....It would take too long to capture and reinstall software. The Media drive which I think is the problem, can be formatted. Would this help? Would a Chkdsk help too?
