  1. Hi there spicyninja7,

    Is this a new OS drive or a secondary one?
    In case it is a secondary one, you can take it out of the system and see whether the issue persists. In case it doesn't, you can double check the connections: attach the drive with different SATA and power cables to a different SATA port. Also, you can test it: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/282651-32-best-diagnostic-testing-utility

    In case it is your OS drive, you can try basically the same things: cables, ports, test. If the issue persists, you can back up the data stored on in and perform a clean OS installation.

    Hope this will help,

    It's a new non os hdd for storage, I tried running my computer with the new hdd unplugged and it still crashed. I have an older hdd and I tried that one plugged in only too. No combination of drives let's my computer run without crashing, the only drive I left in was my ssd with my os on it and it still crashed, even after installing a clean installation of Windows.
  3. Check this thread on the first error message you've mentioned: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2084584/page-fault-paged-area-bsod.html

    Apart from that, what are your specs?
