Hello , i have experienced 4 blue screens in the past 2 weeks and i really need some help!!
Before i begin , be noted that i am a newbie at using the computer , i mostly use it to game and socialize.

Computer specifications :
Acer Aspire 4738G Windows 7 Home Premium
64 bit operating system
Intel core i3-cpu m380@ 2.53ghz
AMD Radeon HD 6370M
4.00GB RAM

I used BlueScreenView to examine the dump files , here are the details for the bsod :

First bsod was caused by ntoskrnl.exe driver , ntoskrnl.exe + 70740
Bug Check String : CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
Bug Check Code : 0x000000f4

Second bosd was caused by ntoskrnl.exe dirver , ntoskrnl.exe + 765da
Bug Check String : DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE
Bug Check Code : 0x1000009f

Third bsod was caused by iaStor.sys driver , iaStor.sys + 4ed89
Bug Check String : BAD_POOL_HEADER
Bug Check Code : 0x00000019

Fourth bsod was caused by aswSnx.SYS driver , aswSnx.SYS + d1b90
Bug Check String : KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
BUg Check code: 0x0000001e

If you need any more information on the blue screens , please tell me i will add it in .

Btw , my computer had no problem starting up before the blue screens happened . Now , after i type in my password at the login screen , it either takes a very long time , or after i get in , it is just a black screen with the cursor . I think that everything has been loaded but nothing is showing because if i open task manager ( ctrl+shift+esc) , the loading circle comes up for about a second . Please help me , i am currently undergoing some financial issues and have no money to buy a new computer .
Thank you

lets try to narrow it down its either hard drive, memory or os.

click start type cmd
(press enter)
chkdsk /r
(press enter)

click start type
windows memory diagnostic
(hit enter)
click on restart and run test

click start type cmd
(press enter)
sfc /scannow
(press enter)
it might be a good idea to have a windows disc ready

I tried typing in sfc/scannow and it gave me Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.

Okay i tried chkdsk /r and it gave me:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.

Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)

Try reinstalling the drivers for the hard drive controllers first.
Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers
Right click on the controller select Uninstall
Restart the computer.
Let it reinstall itself.
See if that helps.

You must run sfc /scannow in administrator mode. click start, type cmd, right click on cmd.exe and choose run ad administrator, then run the sfc /scannow command.

memadmax If i reinstall the hard drive controllers , it gives me an option whether or not to delete the driver software as well . Should i delete it as well or no?

According to one of our techs, you're missing some Windows key files. It's likely due to either hard drive failure or a virus. Run a disk check; if that doesn't fix it, do a fresh Windows install. If you don't have a recovery disk, you should be able to get one from Microsoft.

Delete the driver software. Masterwork is on the right idea, but he didn't read the posts lol. Already did a virus check, and SFC /scannow (key files check).
