BSOD. Such a sad situation.

Only way to go is to reinstall windows

well...that sucks even more because we know it's not caused by a virus so thus it is an actual hardware malfunction.

"Bluescreens can also be caused by physical faults such as faulty memory, power supplies, overheating of computer components, or hardware running beyond its specification limits."

This happened the first time to my new computer i built a month ago about last week. Was playing counterstrike and starcraft at lan party for 14 straight hours, accidently pulled the mouse out and bsod. So most likely it is a hardware malfunction.

I don't really know to much about this area, you might wanna ask some others to help you with. Sorry

The jumpers is there a way u can post a picture of what it looks like inside the case.

most HDD's bought off the internet are OEM you need to plug into your power supply case and an SATA wire that doesnt come with a OEM item
