Blue screens can happen for a variety of reasons. These days, driver issues are probably number one on that list, tied with problems at shut down.
Absolute zero disk activity? No, I don’t believe you can accomplish this in any practical way.
I have at least one idea that will get you about 90% of the way there, but I just don’t think the extra effort that you’re going through is going to help your hard drive.
I could be wrong, but I suspect your hard disk either has or is developing a problem.

I’m having problem starting up my computer. When I press the Power button, it lights up and everything inside it runs, but nothing appears on my monitor. I don’t know what’s the problem. I already cleaned it and had reset the CMOS, but nothing works.
Well, I’ll put it this way: just because the lights are on, doesn’t mean anyone’s home.
I get this and similar questions often. You turn on your computer. It makes noise, you can see lights – perhaps even blinking lights – and assume that it must be running.
It might be.
Problem is – it might also not be running at all.
