I have a laptop that worked fine for about 4 months, but it's having errors now.
It was locking up and freezing pretty badly on startup, looked like it was related to explorer.exe crashes. I installed SP1 beta to eliminate any corrupt file problems and it helped with the lockups. It is getting this BSOD:

Which is something to do with kernel crashes? And could be hard drive related.
In Event Viewer it shows lots of #11 "The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort0" The errors start June 9th. I'm not sure about the lockups since I don't own the computer.
The BIOS is set to AHCI mode, in case that matters. The hard drive is a 320GB Hitachi 2.5" 5400rpm mobile drive.
