Minidump errors causing restarts

  1. Hi guys =]

    My computer broke a while back, so I bought a new system, and placed my old hard drive within that system. It works a treat, other than the fact that quite often, why I try to startup, it performs a search for corrupt files, and then, again, quite often, the computer randomly restarts (as it would if there had been a power cut). When it reloads windows, it says that the system has recovered from a serious error, and when I get more information, it gives me this error account:


    I ran tweaknow, to try to clean the registry a little, but is there anything more specific I could do to help my problem?

    Thanks a lot in advance =]

    Can you reply and attach (by browsing to) C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini011308-01.dmp
    This file may help in diagnosing the error

    Inside DMP file

    Could not read faulting driver name
    Probably caused by : ntoskrnl.exe ( nt!ExAllocatePoolWithTag+770 )

    Sorry, this DMP file is not a good reference to what is happening

    You will need to post more of them - ideally zipped up in one file

    Another two restarts today...


    The zipped file is too large, so I'll have to do them singularly. Sorry =/

    I've uploaded the minidump from the last error, wonder if that helps

    Thanks for your amazing help thus far =]

    Inside the DMP file:
    This type of fault can be repaired by :

    Full Check Disk on your drive
    Do a full Defrag of your drive
    Is this drive NTFS ? (if not type: CONVERT C: /FS:NTFS at the command line)
    Running Memtest on your Ram
    Also MS has addressed this error and solution HERE

    Please reply back once these things are done

    I did all of the above, and still the problem persists, and I'm having major errors with other games and such. Will I need to replace the hard drive? =/

    That would likely fix it

    But before you go out and purchase another drive
    Do a full back up (likely already done, I hope)
    Run a full Repair on Windows

    Mind you if the drive is 80Gig capacity or under, I'd replace it.
