    I finally got around to running the tools (C:\ drive, properties\tools\error checking). It said it fixed errors.

    Then for good measure, I ran chkdsk /r from an elevated cmd prompt. By the time I took a look at it, the chkdsk had finished and it was back to the log-in screen.

    Here's is what was reported in the event log after I ran the error checking tool:

    Please check your other hard drives too, to make sure they're fine too.

    OK. I ran the error checking tool on my 2 other internal drives (d:\ and e:\, both spinners). No errors were found.

    I assume that is sufficient and equivalent to running chkdsk /r on them? If not, chkdsk wants to dismount those drives before running. I'm not sure of the implications of dismounting a drive.

    Chkdsk /r scans the hard drives for bad sectors and in case there are bad sactors it recovers the readable data.
    Yes, it is sufficient to run it.

    Thanks a lot for your help. I'm not sure exactly what we found, other than the memory tests good and the C:\ drive (SSD) did a successful repair... whatever that issue was. Oh, and by run it, I assume you mean the windows tool found in the drive properties, not the specific chkdsk /r command?

    Shall I mark this solved?

    Both do the same thing, but the property utility has a UI.

    If you don't get any BSOD within the next few days, please mark this thread as solved
    If you do get any BSOD within the next few days, please use the tool again and upload the zip file.

    The reason I wonder if there's a difference is that the UI command seems to operate quicker than the chkdsk /r command does. Or maybe I didn't watch long enough to notice.

    I'm not sure what command the UI uses and if it even really checks every sector.
    Usually a used sector cannot be accessed twice as that could cause trouble.

    No more BSODs. I don't know if the original was a fluke or just what.

    Let's called it fixed, but not really solved. I consider it solved when I know what caused the issue and apply the appropriate fix!
