Hi,
I've been noticing an issue recently with my hard drive in my PC.

Every time I restart my PC, it begins a cycle of BSOD's, and basically keeps on repeating the OS startup.

The first time this happened I managed to boot up my OS properly after some time but now I believe something got seriously corrupt somehow.

This is how the cycle repeats.
The bios starts up, then starts the OS. The OS starts loading and then simply crashes, causing a typical BSOD situation.
The computer then restarts and repeats this process.
Over time the computer notices the chain of restarts and automatically commences repair mode. Which I'm redirected to a ui containing options on repairing my PC.

This is a custom build and I have tampered with the hard drive before, but not to the point to where it would corrupt in such an odd way.

I managed to catch a very very very quick glimpse of the error message, as it usually goes away in .2 seconds as far as ive observed.

I'll see if I can upload a picture on mobile , but the error message said the following (at least what I could read of it)

"SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (qffcoei.sys)"

After noticing this, I have a good feeling that the issue is in regards to this system file being corrupt somehow.

Also, I am running Windows 8.

Please assist me in saving my PC. Thank you greatly in advance.
