0x0000007A Kernal_Mode_trap

Hi guys

Can somebody please confirm my suspicions that the hard drive is playing up?

Have run chkdsks and they all come back clean but the dump files say different.

Its a virtually brand new install of Win7.

All virus scans come back clean.

Basically the laptop (emachines E520) will randomly freeze up and then eventually BSOD with the 7A code.
The hard drive activity light will be solid green then bang BSOD.

Also says memory corruption at the bottom of the dump file so maybe faulty ram (windows memory checker says clean but im sure that tool is good for nothing)

CHeers in advance for your assistance
