Default BSODing like a mofo lately.... tools to scan hard disk?

BSOD is raping my pc lately. It all started about 1.5 weeks ago when I was getting Kernal errors (BSOD) on copying/moving large files.

So I took out my RAM sticks and wiped them with a dry rag, then vacuumed my pc and the slots the RAM go into and pulled out the sata cabled to both my hard disks and and blew compressed air in to clean any dust.

It solved everything for about 2 days but it's back now intermittently.

The wierd thing is it is only copying large files to 1 of my 2 Western Digital HDDs. my 150GB 10,000 rpm seems fine. But my 250GB 7200rpm seems to be acting bad and I'm pretty sure this disk is the culprit. Maybe it's breaking down?

Is there any tool to scan the entire 250GB Wstrn Dig drive (and its 3 partitions) for bad sectors?


Im sure either that disk, my RAM or the cabling is tarnished or something. Any tools to scan the RAM also would be a massive help.

I'm not trying to recover data dad. I need to scan the harddrive for bad sectors. I've used GDB before but I don't remember it doing that.

BSOD is usually a driver problem. Have you written down the error code and googled it?

Have you used the scan disk tool in the C drive properties?

Yup, your right, it doesn't, this does though, and if your on Windows, it has a built in one.

What version of Windows are you running?

If greater than Vista, you can also check out event viewer from Control Panel>Administrative Tools. Basic info about any BSOD should be in there somewhere.

As regards testing your RAM, Memtest86 is a good option. http://www.memtest.org/

Check out Crystal Disk Info to view your SMART data for your drives. http://crystalmark.info/software/Cry...nfo/manual-en/

I ran a memory check and RAM seems ok.

However when I ran Hark disk Sentinal it report the 250GB drive "a communication error occurred between the disk and the host" While my other, 150GB drive Sentinal reported it as in Perfect condition. This is kind of what I want to see is errors on that drive because at least it gives me a definite source. I hate intermittent bentness.

Seanjo - I havn't updated any drivers at all for a long time so I've no idea which ones to check and the BSODS are all different messages I've googled some but it's too vague.
repost- The thing is I have 3 partitions on this HDD C/ H/ and R/ is there a way to scan all 3 i.e. the entire drive.

I'm using Hiren's boot CDD it has lots of stuff on it and I going to run a disk scan over the next hour or so.

Dad61 - I will try acronis tnx.The gay thing is I ran Western digital's "Data Lifeguard Diagnostic" and it couldn't find any problems for shit! This is why I'm confused between it being the SATA cables being fcke'd up, tarnished or corroded or the drive is intermittently on the blink. I will place a new SATA cable to that drive if I have one and we'll see.

The_evil_one - Yup i tried memtest, RAM seems all good afaik. I'm running Windows Server 2003 SP2 never had a problem with it in 7 years. Very stable. So I'm sure it's my hardware or i think

If you are on win 7 go to: Start, Control Panel, Action Centre, click on the maintenance drop down arrow, view reliability history, check to see if there are any problems shown there that relate to the BSOD crashes.

Alternative way to get to action centre is in the tray bottom right a little pointy flag, click on that and open action centre.
