Tip: Make a backup of your hack before using any external tools on it so you can revert to a previous version should anything go wrong.

Earlier today I was logging into my computer. It was asleep. It was taking an eternity to boot back up... I tried pressing the power button. Then later it flat out went Blue Screen of Death on me! The main driver doesn't work. I am reporting this through and old backup driver I keep all my main stuff on. I'll try and see if I can get my main driver back up again.

P.S. The search history of my old driver is like a time capsule of cringe...
What even is a "main driver"? Literally never heard of that, and don't think something like that exists. From my experience, BSoD are usually caused by some specific piece of hardware or a specific driver malfunctioning, but I'm pretty sure there isn't a thing called "main driver". Each piece of hardware has its individual drivers.

Are you perhaps confusing "driver" with "drive"?

Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!
I'm assuming he means main drive as in the C: drive. Hard drives usually only last about 4 to 5 years if they are true HDD, a little longer for hybrid drives and SSDs are limited by read/writes.
For a BSOD it can happen due to a fault on a drive due to a bad sector, if this is the case and the drive won't spin (assuming it's an HHD) they it's dead. You can take it to places to have the platters read and data transferred but the cost of that is huge. Though if it made any weird sounds prior to it just not working it could be that the fingers broke and carved the platters and if that's the case.... data is lost forever.
There's a slim chance that you'd be able to get it to spin again but probably not.

Though if you do mean main drive... did you have a dual boot system or Windows installed on 2 drives? If not did you make a new partition? I'm curious cause Windows generally wants to format a drive before installing.
Well. Ninja boy pretty much hit the nail on the head. I had a C: drive that malfunctioned. But now I'm communicating to you guys on the E: drive. But the thing about my C: drive being scratched and all data being lost forever sound scary...

I don't recall any strange sounds coming from the C: drive. But the thought of my pictures, music and search history being gone forever sounds horrible to me.
Quick Update. My Main C: Drive is perfectly fine. Either it's too full to run or one of the main boot files is corrupted... I don't know... I hope I can get it figured out today. Cause I had to use Imgur and Reddit on my phone for the last week and a half and I'm sick of it!
Alright guys! I'm finally back on my Normal C: Drive! After like 2 wretched weeks, I'm finally back baby! Turns out one or most of the boot files was corrupted somehow. So now everything's back to normal.
