    - Get a bsod (bluescreen of Death) just about every time I boot up my computer.
    -I cant boot safe mode
    -- The only way I can acess my computer is if I boot to last known good config.
    - There is no dump files for the bsod, I tried to find the error in the dump location and its just not there.

    Should I buy a new hard drive and should I get an external one as a backup?

    Have you...
    • Ran a disk error check on your drives/partitions?
    • Scanned your system with your antivirus?
    • Googled the file on the bsod screen for solutions?
    Also what's your OS?

    The error check came up clean on my hdd
    malware bytes, avast scanned the entire computer and it came out clean.
    -Os= Windows 7 Home premium
    - I googled the bsod a day or two ago and It displays "(INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE)"

    The answer is probably a new HDD. Preferably an SSD for your OS and a reliable HDD for storage. I recommend Western Digital.

    I have an external desk drive that I use for backups. Works as intended so go ahead and grab one if you want.
