    Check drive space/Check HDD/when in doubt fresh install it out.

  • plenty of space, 600GB of 800GB, and ran speedfan on it, 98% performance on HDD.

  • I don't believe Speedfan's S.M.A.R.T. scan has the ability to detect bad sectors, you more than likely have to use a more comprehensive HDD test. 

    Viruses/Drivers Out of date, would be my only other options. 

    If you don't find yourself that tech savvy, simply save all important files externally and re-format your machine.

  • Hi,

    You could upload your full dump file to us and we will help you to analyze.

    According to the message which you uploaded, it is caused by the system driver which called "Ntfs.sys".

    We would first consider the file is corrupted, and you could run SFC tool to fix it. Please tell us if any error displayed after you run it.


    If it displays no error, you need to use Driver Verifier and Memory Test to find the reason.



    Good luck to fix it.

    Best Regards,

    We do need the actual log files (called a DMP files) as they contain the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

    Please follow our instructions for finding and uploading the files we need to help you fix your computer. They can be found here
    If you have any questions about the procedure please ask
