BSOD with bbc code f4, freezing and reboots

  1. My setup
    OS: Windows 7 Profesional
    Cpu: i5-3570K OC to 4.4Ghz
    Motherboard: Asrock Extreme4
    Boot drive: 120GB Intel 330 ssd
    Storage drive: 500GB Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid-Drive
    Psu: Antec High Current Gamer 750W
    Ram: 16GB G. Skill Ripjaw

    My computer would randomly BSOD and freeze up on me. I unistalled and reinstalled my graphics drivers which solved one BSOD error. After that I began to get this on about 3 times a day. I since then reinstalled windows after a format and reinstalled all my drivers. During the install I suffered the BSOD posted here. I am out of options and am really thinking that the problem is harware related. I just don't know how to find out what the source is.

    Were all these files hi-lighted in pink inside Bluescreenview? Only the hi-lighted files should be noted? There are so many, I can't help believe that they were all hi-lighted. It is important to know what the hi-lighted ones were

    Okay, this is looking like a hard drive issue. Run CHKDSK (check disk) by going to control panel, and right-click on the C drive. Select properties, tools, check now. Put a check in both boxes to set a disk check on the next start up

    I checked both the solid state drive from intel and the Seagate momentus xt for firmware updates both turned up with nothing

    Did we forget about a firmware reverse or update for the hard drive? Can you contact Seagate Support? Did you register this drive with Seagate for warranty?
