Sorry in advance if this turns out to be a novel.
Didn't know if this should be put under the Win or driver.. sorry if it's in the wrong place.
Windows keeps shutting down and throwing the blue error screen in my face, saying something about device drivers causing the error. I originally thought it might have been something with my audio or video drivers because it seemed to happen while watching movies... but after updating... same problem. I reformated and still same problem.... after a few months of manual abrupt shutdowns/restarts, my hdd starts getting sluggish and then even more sluggish. Next thing i know i've got a S.M.A.R.T. warning telling me my hdd's almost gone. So i purchase a new one... get everything going and i've still got the same problem.
Is there a program that lets me hone into driver problems? Or any links, suggestions that could help me out?
