Q: BSOD on new computer while using network card, 0xF4 ntoskrnl.exe

Hi there I recently built my first computer and have been having problems with it ever since The BSOD using ntoskrnl.exe card, 0xF4 on new computer network while problem typically occurs when the computer boots up and attempts to connect to my home wifi where it will hang freeze up completely eventually BSOD or just BSOD straight away The problem does not occur when using a cellphone to provide internet Because of this I foolishly BSOD on new computer while using network card, 0xF4 ntoskrnl.exe thought it was an issue with my router which was years old - replacing this did not fix it For what little I tested it for for some reason the computer was using a ridiculous amount of bandwidth it seems to work fine using a T-stick to get mobile broadband I have tested the network card in my boyfriend's build where it works fine I have tested his identical network card in my build where if I recall correctly it had problems Forgive me for being forgetful as I did a lot of these tests a couple of weeks ago and was having such a diverse range of crashes that I can't remember what caused what I've run the build without the graphics card but that had no luck The HDD and SSD have both been tested using Hard Disk Sentinel and came up perfect I'm currently running Driver Verifier but it's just showing a black screen I'm not sure if this is normal or not Using WhoCrashed says that it's probably ntoskrnl exe and suggests that it's not a hardware problem but a typical driver issue I would be so grateful if someone could please look over the logs as I can't seem to solve this myself Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: BSOD on new computer while using network card, 0xF4 ntoskrnl.exe

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Locke and welcome to Sevenforums.

To be able to help you, we'd need you to compile a full report. This includes, crash dumps, nfo etc. To get these files, use our thread below.

BSOD Analyse

For now: SFC /SCANNOW - We usually ask people to do this command to check if Windows is corrupted. It's the most common used one to check if the Windows files are corrupted. If it'll find errors, it'll restore them.



   Tip
If you're having a custom customization layer on your Aero, it's likely to get restored to default.

A:BSOD - randomly occurred, 0xf4 and ntoskrnl.exe

Sadly, the f4 BSOD code can mean a variety of things. In my experience, that is the most common error code that windows gives you when it really doesn't know what the problem is. But at least it gave you a file name to work with. ntoskrnl.exe is a core windows file for many services.

Questions: How old is your hardware? Did you buy your components brand new? Have you had blue screens in the past? Has your pc had any viruses/malware on it?

These tips will probably bring up zilch results, but it's worth a shot:

Try running a virus scanner if you suspect any malware on your system. Best ones are:

SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!
Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download

You can try running some diagnostics on your drives, if you haven't already.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Disk Check

You can also try running memtest, but I don't think the ram is at fault here.

In addition, make sure all your drivers for your hardware are up to date. You can check for updates by going to the Start button > type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotations into the search box > locate your hardware on the left side of the window, expand it by clicking the small arrow next to the hardware's icon, and right-click the entry and select Update Driver Software.

Has the PC blue screened again since you last posted? Another thing I've had in my experience are just single random blue screens that happen only once and never again. Your BSOD might have just been a fluke, but I wouldn't bet the house on it just yet.

EDIT: Another thing I forgot to ask. Do you have any other hardware attached to your system? USB devices? etc.

EDIT PART DEUX: According to your dump file, the probable cause of your bsod was from wininit.exe. I don't know if this does a lot of good though, as the file is another core windows file; it contains a group of many more services and commands for windows, comprising of both third and non-third party processes. However, if you keep getting blue screens and they all point to the same file, then I suspect a non-third party windows driver MAY be at work here.

Computer just crashed again, was just downloading a game through steam, and everything froze and locked up, however the mouse still worked. (Windows froze, desktop froze, startmenu/bar disappeared after a bit) also would not respond to ctrl+alt+dlt or ctrl+sift+esc.
However this time it threw KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR , STOP 0x0000007A
Again the BSOD is hanging at "Initializing disk for crash dump..." So no mini dump file...

Hi,

All of the attached DMP files are of the CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION (f4) and some are verifier enabled as well~

A process or thread critical to proper system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.




This essentially means that there's a hardware problem with the boot drive, or a device driver has a bug or a critical service was stopped.
In regards to your SSD, visit the OCZ's website and ensure the firmware is up to date. That is very important with SSD's.

Quote:




I have performed a chkdsk /f on the primary SSD and it did come up with "File record segment 536352 is unreadable" 4 bad file records processed. BSOD still occurs the same.




chkdsk usually does not give intended results on SSD's. If after updating firmware, you're still having issues, run a chkdsk. However, rather than an /f flag, try it with a /r as /f does not scan for bad sectors and /r does.
In your loaded drivers list, dtsoftbus01.sys is listed which is the Daemon Tools driver. Daemon Tools is a very popular cause of BSOD's in 7/8 based systems. Please uninstall Daemon Tools. Alternative imaging programs are: MagicISO, Power ISO, etc.

^^ Smart Defrag driver.

You're not defragging your SSD, are you? Performing a defrag on an SSD reduces its lifespan due to the way SSD's are built as they wear down every time they are written accessed.

A:Fresh Win7 x64 Install - BSOD / ntoskrnl / 0xf4 / CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERM

Also, last night after posting I thought to remove the Intel HD 4600 graphics driver, and then try the Catalyst 13.9 driver (just the driver not the whole Catalyst package). That provided some stability as I was able to work for quite a while.

Then I started to connect my external hard drives again, one at a time, and see if things remained stable. On the first one it seemed fine, but on the second I got the BSOD on bootup. On a whim, I tried moving that one to a different USB3 port. So far, it's been stable up and running overnight and this morning. It wasn't doing much at the time, so that could be coincidental, but it did do some CrashPlan backup tasks and this morning I browsed for a bit and installed a software package, and so far it's still up.

Just more information and clues for anyone who is willing to look at the dump files. Thank you!

I've already tried to change the "idle" frequencies of the video card to 400 Mhz and 900 Mhz with no changes whatsoever. I've also made a full format and installed only the latest drivers from my motherboard seller (ECS) and the latest ATI Catalyst drivers, as I've told before. I've tried to run chkdsk on all my hard drives, and the memory check that comes built-in with Win7.

No changes on any of those.

A:0xF4 BSOD issue on new computer

I see indications that your mcaffe firewall may be causing some issues.
It wouldn't hurt to make double sure you have the latest drivers for your creative labs audio card either.
They're early 2008 which would put them as vista or win 7 beta drivers, I'm pretty sure you can get something newer.
all the 'log me in' stuff is dated, but I don't know of it causing any specific problems, just making you aware.

Anyhow what we are seeing here is a critical service exception. It's very unlikely it is hardware based more likely software (the mcafee) or a driver issue.
Temporarily removing mcaffe and seeing if the problem decreases or goes away will point to it rather quickly.
I do suggest looking into newer drivers for your creative labs device/audio card as well.

I don't think there's anything you can do about the logmein stuff.

oh and just incase you don't know what csrss.exe is it's part of the core windows foundation and is always listed as the faulting app in this type of crash. So don't read too much into that. http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/pr...csrss.exe.html

Hi All,

I have recently built a new pc but it keeps blue screening. It happens at random times but it is very frequent. It has happened 3 times while attempting to write this post.

I have looked at all the crash dumps in BlueScreenView.exe and the driver at fault seems to be ntoskrnl.exe offset at 7cc80.

The call stack is always the same as well. I haven't been able to locate the problem myself so I thought someone might be able to help me out on here

I have tried running a test with memtest86+ and it seemed to work fine.

Attached are a zip file with all my crash dumps and a txt file containing a dxdiag about my machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,
Wil

Hi, this started after i took out my MSI 5770 card and put in ASUS 7770, i just swapped nothing more, didnt think i would need to install new drivers, then this started and happens when im running a bot in diablo3.

ive tried uninstalling the driver, install the newest, install the beta driver, tried using driver sweeper to clean out everything AMD/ATI then install the beta drivers, but still it happens

yesterday i ran the game with the bot and it was fine so i thought i had fixed it with the driver sweeper, but when i woke up this morning the computer had BSOD.
so im coming here and see if i can do anything, thinking about formating the C: and reinstall w7

A:BSOD 0xf4 on Win 7 x64

Hi Speeder and welcome to SF
Basically F4 means that crucial system processes have been stopped or are unavailable ATM
So the main cause is your disappearing SSD. I have no 1st hand experience with SSDs so I would suggest to open a ticket with Corsair..maybe even RMA the drive but they will tell you how and when.

Hi There,

As you can see, I have upgraded my PC recently to a SSD drive. Installed new Win 7 x64 and if I leave my PC on overnight, I often find it crashed with 0xF4 BSOD error.

I've never seen the 0xF4 error before, only now with SSD and new OS.

Windows 7 x64 retail, hardware pretty much new, so is OS, installed a week ago.

According to M$, they say it's a CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION detailed here: Bug Check 0xF4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION

Please take a look at my crash details (attachment).

I will be grateful for any help.

Thanks!

A:New SSD, New OS = 0xF4 BSOD

Since i got Vertex 3 my PC BSODs regularly
Intervals are like from 1 day to 2.5 weeks.
It BSODed on my old motherboard 785G/SB710 and on my fresh and new 990X/SB950, both with different CPUs.

I'm tired of doing all the voodoo magic that are posted on OCZ forums (flashing BIOS, reseting CMOS, secure erasing drive, unlugging cables, changing BIOS settings, changing OS settings etc).

It BSODed on 2.11 firmware and after latest F4 BSOD yesterday i reflashed to latest 2.13.

After searching some clues i found out that there are two schools of thought:

1) BSOD have something to do with power management/sleep states so drive disconnects when it wants

2) SF firmware can't correctly handle CRC errors so drive crawls to snail speed and becomes unavailable and OS BSODs.

I got BSODs while playing games, browsing web and idling with empty desktop etc, so i think number 2 is more likely. Looks like Sandfrorce is fail because drives from different brands with same controller have same problems.
And both Intel and AMD chipsets are affected.

Now i'm going to try and mirror drive and secure erase it and mirror back.

I'm getting closer and closer to moment when i will go back to HDD. For this much money i could have bought 12 500GB Barracudas ffs

A:Random BSOD 0xF4

Code:
CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION (f4)
A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been
terminated.
Several processes and threads are necessary for the operation of the
system; when they are terminated (for any reason), the system can no
longer function.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000003, Process
Arg2: fffffa8006e41b30, Terminating object
Arg3: fffffa8006e41e10, Process image file name
Arg4: fffff80002dcf270, Explanatory message (ascii)
So this bugcheck indicates a critical process has terminated, if this happens we obviously get a bugcheck as these processes are critical for the system to operate. There is wininit.exe and csrss.exe as the two main critical processes, I believe there are a few more but they aren't very common when it comes to 0xF4s.


Code:
1: kd> dc fffffa8006e41e10
fffffa80`06e41e10 696e6977 2e74696e 00657865 03000000 wininit.exe.....
fffffa80`06e41e20 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 ................
fffffa80`06e41e30 00000000 00000000 06e49f78 fffffa80 ........x.......
fffffa80`06e41e40 07ba5ba8 fffffa80 00000000 00000000 .[..............
fffffa80`06e41e50 00000000 00000000 00000006 5322684a ............Jh"S
fffffa80`06e41e60 00008000 00000000 fffda000 000007ff ................
fffffa80`06e41e70 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 ................
fffffa80`06e41e80 00000000 00000000 00000c71 00000000 ........q.......
So our critical process in our latest dump is the wininit.exe module, it's the network application programming interface for the HTTP and FTP protocols to access resources on the internet.

So we know what was terminated, but why is the better question.

Our main clue is the exception error code which is the reason we crashed.


Code:
EXCEPTION_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000006 - The instruction at 0x%p referenced memory at 0x%p. The required data was not placed into memory because of an I/O error status of 0x%x.
This error is usually caused by a failing drive, and therefore I recommend running SeaTools DOS to see if our drive shows any errors.

SeaTools for DOS | Seagate

Can you also upload a Kernel memory dump if possible as I might be able to identify any other reasons for it to crash if the drive isn't failing.

Go the Start
Right click My Computer
Select Properties
Click Advanced system settings
Click on the Advanced tab
Select Settings under Startup and Recovery
Then under Write debugging information select Kernel memory dump.

Once a dump is created go to:


Code:
C:\Windows\memory.dmp
Copy the file to the desktop, zip it up and upload it to a file sharing site like Onedrive. After the upload is done post the download link in your next reply.

It's always better to try and find any other leads before jumping the gap and going straight out to buying another drive.

Also, when you're uploading the file or using the computer in every day uses just open task manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) and monitor the memory usage, tell me what it looks like after a long period of time to when it crashes.

Can you make sure you obtained the copy of windows 7 from a reliable source? Make sure the ISO that install windows is not corrupted, my experience with random BSOD, tells me that the installation is probably corrupted.

Also make sure you have all drivers installed with the most up to date version.

Hello I have a user that is having an issue with her Dell 6430U. It BSOD'd on her twice this morning and has been doing it at least once a week according to logfile since Sept. I ran "who crashed" and found just a generic ntoskrl error. Although it says it most likely was caused by software and not hardware, it then says, most likely caused by a "thermal event". This is not very helpful and is more confusing that informative to me.

I had her create the .zip file file and am uploading it here.

Hey guys I'm back with another BSOD This time what happened was when I first switched on the 0xF4 BSOD-Stop com there was a message saying from memory because I forgot to write it down quot The file C windows winsxs manifest amd soemthing something is corrupt BSOD-Stop 0xF4 and unreadable Run CHKDSK utility quot So I restarted and then Windows Startup repair ran for quite a BSOD-Stop 0xF4 while and when it finally stopped and restarted the chkdsk ran Found a lot of orphaned files repaired minor errors in filenames etc and then it restarted However it asked to check disks for consistency again And again the same thing happened So the next time I stopped chkdsk from running and after the starting windows logo came out the dreaded BSOD was there It said Stop x F x xFFFFFA BF xFFFFFA BF xFFFFF D So now I'm stuck in an endless loop It's running startup repair right now And I've a feeling it might be the same result What should I do I haven't tried booting into Safe mode yet So I shall try that next but in the meantime any advice Im not sure if my hard drive might be the problem maybe its failing

Hi all!

I've built this PC from scratch just a few months ago and I'm beginning to get BSOD's multiple times each week now.

I haven't been able to witness many BSOD's as they mostly happen when I'm away from the PC. (I have disabled sleep and hibernation)

Normally I get 0x7A's but now I got a 0xF4, I've attached all needed data to this post.

Windows 7 Professional x64
Full retail
Last OS reinstall 3 weeks ago

I'd appreciate any help you can give me

A:Out of the blue BSOD 0xF4

Did you check your RAM? Run ramtest to see if anything is wrong.

Update your video card driver. Go directly to manufacturer site to download the latest video card driver.

But I suspect this has to do with your IDE cable setup in bio. Try first 2 recommendations first, report back.

Hi, I got the BSOD recentlyand I was wondering why this was happening. Here is what the BSOD says
***STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8A371020, 0x8A371194, 0x805C77CA)
I have had XP on this computer for 2 years and I never had the BSOD before
If you have any suggestions on what to do that would be great

Two months ago, I bought a number of components and assembled my PC, using Windows 7 Home 64-bit.

A few times a week during 'cold' start-up, I get a BSOD with STOP id 0x000F4. There are also 'cold' start-ups that are successful. When I do a restart or a shutdown followed by a start-up this problem has never occured yet.

What is always the case is that the BSOD hangs in the phase "initializing disk for crash dump" and the led of the harddisk is burning constantly, but nothing happens. As a consequence, I do not have a crash dump file of this problem.

I did already a complete reinstall with the OS of my system, but the problem remains. The tests of the disk, memory and graphics acard are ok.

Does anyone have a idea what is going on here?

A:BSOD 0xF4 only during start-up

No DMP files included in upload try this method.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Follow steps 1-3 and physically remove the SSD from the system by disconnecting the cables for a desktop or disconnecting the drive from the junction for a laptop.
Leave the drive disconnected for 30 seconds to let all power drain from it.
Do steps 1-3 and replace the drive connection(s) and then do steps 4-8 again.
Repeat steps 1-4.
Start your computer normally and run Windows.

While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.

One of the many processes or threads crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated. As a result, the system can no longer function. Specific causes are many, and often best resolved by a careful history of the problem and the circumstances of the error message. One user, who experienced this on return from Standby mode on Win XP SP2, found the cause was that Windows was installed on a slave drive; compare http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;330100

Had this issue a few weeks ago, couldn't fix it. I got fed up and reformatted thinking that would solve a driver issue...but the problem persisted. I finally resorted to swapping out my ATI 6870 to an NVidia 8800 and the problem ceased...for awhile. Now it happens once or twice a day, only while gaming or some other intensive process. I do not know what to do.

Ran memtest but nothing was found. I just don't know what else to do.

Thanks!

I've been getting frequent 0x7a and 0xF4 blue screens for a while now and for the past couple days my computer would just freeze up and I would have to force a shutdown with the power button.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:0x7a and 0xF4 BSOD

Next time upload the .dmp files directly to Seven Forums not to a file sharing site unless specified otherwise.

0xF4 bugchecks indicate a critical process for Windows to function has been terminated causing the system to crash.

0x7A bugchecks means requested Kernel data cannot be read back into memory from disk.

Both can be caused by disk errors and it looks like your drive is failing.
Especially when this is the error code for the 0x7A bugcheck.


Code:
ERROR_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc000000e - A device which does not exist was specified.

DISK_HARDWARE_ERROR: There was error with disk hardware

Run SeaTools to see if your HDD or SSD is failing

Update: I updated a few minor drivers that I had missed from 3DPchip but the chrome overload test of mine (31 tabs) still crashed the system.

It then occurred to me that my new desktop was still on the floor on top of carpet which was likely impeding the airflow into my PSU. After putting the box on my desk, my overload test loads all of the tabs fully with no issues (no dead jims). I'll add another post if problems persist but the stability seems to fixed itself out. Win!

TL;DR: I'm a moron, put your desktop on a flat non-carpeted surface.

Hello,
I'm hoping someone can help as this is so frustrating. I have a Dell 8700xps running windows 8 and I keep getting crashes. If I try gaming it happens for sure, anywhere from a couple minutes in to 10-15 min. I can never play longer than that before a crash happens. Otherwise the crashes just happen at random times. I've used BlueSceenView and it always points to ntoskrnl. I have run every test I can find on my hard rive and on my RAM with everything checking out. So Im thinking it should be a driver issue but don't know how to identify it or at least narrow it down. Any help would be appreciated.

For about a month now, I've been getting random BSOD. It seems to be happening more frequently. It can happen when gaming, while browsing the internet, or even just idling on the desktop. I ran a memtest a while ago, and it didn't find anything, but I don't think I quite made it to 8 passes before I stopped it. I ran chkdsk /f yesterday after googling my stop code, but that didn't find anything.

My setup is:
Intel i3-2120
ASrock Extreme3 Gen3
Sapphire Radeon HD 6870
Boot drive: OCZ Agility III 120 GB
Storage drive: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500 GB

Because I have a separate boot drive and storage drive and the only large programs I have on the boot drive are BF3, I'm willing to do a clean install if I need to. But I wanted to get some more knowledgeable help before I went ahead and did anything. Thanks!

Starting today I'm getting a BSOD running Windows I have made no changes to drivers hardware etc for months I was on the computer for a few hours today then I got the BSOD It doesn't all of the sudden go to BSOD it will lock up while still having mouse movement then sometimes come back 0xF4 file BSOD no dump with for a second or two then most of the time show my desktop background just the background then BSOD Once it crashes I have to shut down my computer for seconds or so then start up again If I try to boot up right away it will give me the quot reboot and select proper boot device quot message and will BSOD 0xF4 with no dump file continue to do so until I shutdown BSOD 0xF4 with no dump file for a short period It crashes everytime within - minutes of the computer booting up No dump files are being created and yes I have done all of things you are going to ask the file is setup to be created properly in settings and my page file is enough gb with gb of ram and error reporting services are enabled When I get the BSOD it says collecting data initializing disk but then never gets passed that This leads me to believe the BSOD is related to the hard drive an SSD as it looks like it can't initialize the disk to write the dump file to it Also on one occurrence I was in My Computer when the crash started and I noticed my hard drive disappeared I believe my DVD drive was there though I have changed the SATA cable switched SATA ports and still no luck There are also no events in event viewer around it although I'm not able to thoroughly check as it crashes so quickly I've tried booting in safe mode as well and still crashes I've attached a photo of the BSOD if that helps Any thoughts

Your pagefile is not the correct size to capture memory dumps. An 8 gB pagefile can't capture 8gB of RAM - there is additional overhead required. The pagefile should be at least 8.5 gB in size.

The pagefile must be on the same drive as the OS (there are ways around this - but it involves editing the registry).

IMO these are the significant observations:

Quote:




If I try to boot up right away it will give me the "reboot and select proper boot device...." message





Quote:




Also, on one occurrence I was in My Computer when the crash started and I noticed my hard drive disappeared




Also, we have had numerous problems with SSD's. So many that I'm holding off on getting one until the technology matures enough to make them reliable enough for daily use.

The first step with any SSD issue (IME) is to ensure that you have the latest firmware installed on the drive. I would also suggest a hard drive test if your SSD manufacturer offers one. Here's a free one, but I have no experience with it: Crystal Dew World

Another thing to try is reinstalling your chipset and storage drivers. Even the most updated versions can get corrupted. Also, make sure to download the chipset and storage drivers from the chipset manufacturer's website (Intel, nVidia, AMD, etc)

I have loaded windows XP PRO on MID GPS device called ClarionMind which came with moblin Linux on it originally I have been able to get almost everything I wanted to work on it in XP except for a few things The biggest problem that I have with it is I get a BSOD or BSOD of out coming 0xF4 standby a hard lock coming out of standby every time Along with this it also almost every time damages the file system and I have to run chkdsk r or reimage the SSD on the device from a back up I have been trying 0xF4 BSOD coming out of standby to solve this problem on my own but finding a fix is very time consuming as if I try something I have to wait about min to re-image and also I have just run out of ideas on how to fix this problem Here is BSODs i have gotten x F x x F D x F A C x FB x F x x E C x E CAE x FB X a xE CAAB xC xBF E DB x A I have only gotten the x A one once and the xF about times total I have already read this http support microsoft com kb and from looking at the device manger it says quot Location Location quot so I guest it is set to master I also do not get any mini dumps to try to analysis as it does not seem be able to read or write the SSD at this point Tried Setting the mini dump to the microSD card slot but it does not write anything either Also I am missing one driver This might be related as I am thinking this may be a driver to handle ACPI correctly The quot Device Instance Id quot in drive manager under details for the device says quot ACPI WEC amp D FCE amp quot Have tried googleing this as a whole and in parts and nothing All I have I found is that WEC seems like it is Winbond electronics corporation WEC I tried their support page and using their search but also nothing I really don t know for sure what this device is One interesting thing is is that the device manger says that the location is quot on Intel SCH LPC Interface Controller quot I have looked up with a LPC and fond this http en wikipedia org wiki Low Pin Count It don t say anything about standby or ACPI but I don t know that much on how ACPI works The last thing that I think is related too that windows does not detect the battery All that it knows is if my Clarion Mind is plugged in to AC or not I am hopping that finding this driver will fix this problem too Also here is some specs on the device to help you help me http www umpcportal com products Clarion MiND Any input will be helpful Thank you

A:0xF4 BSOD coming out of standby

The ClarionMind is really nothing more then a netbook but smaller so don't let not knowing anything about this device stop you from replying. It has an Intel Atom CPU and the Intel GMA 500 video card as some netbooks do. Anyone else had problems with a 0x000000F4 BSOD? If so what did you do it fix it? Or if you had some real problems finding a driver how did you end up finding it? Or as anyone had problems not being able to see their battery level? I just needs more ideas of things to try here to fix these problems.

Thanks.

Hi quercus.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
I hope that the SSD is running with the up to date firmware? I see that you have magician installed. If not by any chance, update it.

Update Asmedia AHCI controller from Station-Drivers - Asmedia drivers & firmwares.

Post a screenshot of all your SSD and HDDs using CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World.

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Let us know the results.

Hey there SevenForums users! Long time lurker, first time post. I am currently working on a customers desktop computer right now. The customer has stated that computer is randomly shutting down while viewing emails (web based), typing up documents (Word), and viewing web pages in general. I have already ran Dell Diagnostics along with another diagnostics tool we use in shop. Everything has passed. The computer is also malware/virus free. I'm wondering if anyone can help using their magic and find the cause of these BSOD. My bet is on a driver/Windows update. Thank you for your help and let me know if you need anything!

Hello!

Been having a problem with my new build BSODing on me once every couple of days. Happens randomly, the programs on my desktop will stop responding, start closing, then the PC will crash. Thought it might be time to call in the big guns and see if I can get it sussed.

Think it might be a driver issue. But since I haven't been able to get it solved, it might be the current conjunction of Venus and Saturn for all I've been able to do.

I have:
updated MB BIOS
updated SSD firmware
updated SATA drivers
re-seated RAM, twice

thanks very much for the assistance!

Your dumps do not show a definitive cause, but from some of the things I've seen in them I would suggest you to start with Disk Check

Then download and install Malwarebytes free version from here Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer and run a full scan

This all started when I first installed my Razer Megalodon headset. I installed the device's latest firmware and let Windows install the rest of the drivers for me. It all worked fine for a good hour. Then the BSODs started occurring. The error I get is 0xF4, I have googled the problem many, many times but still no luck. I have tried almost everything such as downloading a hotfix (which wasn't applicable), uninstalling and reinstalling the headset's drivers and I even tried updating my BIOS and reinstalling Windows. I have also tried resitting the RAM and cleaning the parts gently with a hoover incase it was overheating. Still no luck. Even when I unplug the headset and uninstall the drivers, I still get the BSOD. It's like the headset has done some damage deep into the PC.

I will attach the .zip file so you guys can analyse my problem.

Thanks,
Spicier.

Hello, I've recently built this new rig during July, and starting around September I've occasionally gotten some random blue screens with increasing frequency lately. Windows system restore didn't seem to help either. After updating drivers through windows and updating my BIOS I'm still experiencing the same errors. My specs are:

Intel Ivy Bridge i5-3570k
Asrock Z77 Extreme4
G Skill DDR3 2x 4gb
HIS Radeon HD 7850 2gb
OCZ Vertex 3 120gb SSD, Samsung Spinpoint 1tb

Nothing is overclocked and I've ran a few disk checks on the SSD with no errors found. I have no problems booting at all, and there are days where I wont crash, and days where I will crash within 30 minutes of booting.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Two weeks ago, I had to replace my HDD with my current Seagate one. Now, I've been having frequent BSODs for almost a week now very soon after start up and even once after being powered on for a while all with the error 0x000000F4. I've tried to troubleshoot it with the help of Google, but I haven't found anything that seems to help. I tried to uninstall things I thought could be causing an issue such as LogMeInHamachi and Avast AV, and today, I tried to run sfc and correct any problems there. The only supposed problem sfc found (Microsoft-Windows-WindowsUpdateClient-Aux) will not repair even in safe mode. I'm pretty stumped on what needs to be done. Help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Everything Included. I have multiple systems that will BSoD after windows updates go out through wsus. I have looked through the logs and I've found that symevent.sys will popup on pretty much every system in windbg. We have downgraded/upgrade our SEP server version to see if that resolves the issue. I have about 15-20 systems that have this issue. If you need more logs I do have those available. I also ran driver verifier (which you can see in the logs). Any help would be appreciated.

I have tried the methods mentioned by Jephph to get rid of the error as well and they do not seem to work. I have also tried looking for updates for my AMI BIOS at the website of the manufacturer of my PC but they don't have any updates for my model. Hopefully there's a fix for this error which keeps continuously harassing me after turning it on

Witcher 2, Alice, Sanctum, Hunted: Demon's Forge, Hydrophobia, Left4Dead etc. (not really entirely reproducible)
Some other games, even 3D intensive ones either run without issues or I haven't run into them yet.

It started with a few "KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR" (0x7a with Parameter 1 as 20)... I only got one of those dumps, the very first because for some reason it didn't (and still doesn't) save all dumps to disk as they happen, but seems to freeze with that typical audio-stutter before it can manage to do that sometimes.
- I let memtest86 run for 2 passes and didn't find any errors. (I can probably let it run for a lot of passes some night while I'm sleeping)
- I changed the pagefile to different disks
- I moved the system disk (WD Caviar Black 1TB) from a SATA3 6GBps slot to another one in the belief it might be a controller issue.
- I did a Bootup CHKDSK (and the system did it by itself several times after BSODs and fixed some corrupt entries)
- I regurarly check the Harddrives Statuses with HDTune and they all seem fine/healthy.

Afterwards I've had a lot of "CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION" (0xf4 with Parameter1 as 03)
- I checked the temperature of both CPU/GPU and it seems to stay "normal".
- I updated the BIOS, chipset drivers, video drivers (also tried reverting video drivers)
- I checked my system with Avira and MSE and took a look at usual Run/RunOnce registry entries + HiJackThis logs
- I tried underclocking my graphics card
- I probably also did several other things I can basically not remember and I have totally run out of ideas...

System:
CPU: Intel Core i7 950
MoBo: ASUS Sabertooth x58
RAM: 6GB (3x2GB of Corsair XMS3)
GPU: Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX460 (1GB Model)
PSU: Enermax Liberty 500W

Minidumps included.



Two causes

1-Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp,sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads

when you're done you can use this Freeware MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM(MagicDisc) in its place.
2-csrss.exe. Csrss.exe can either be a system file or malware. If located in system 32 is probably a system file., IF not probably malware.

If in system 32 I would run a system file check

In any case I would download malwarebytes or super anti spyware and run it

I have updated mobo's bios and ssd's firmware to the latest version. In my operating system -windpws 7 x64bit sp1- i have disabled the option of shuting down hard disk drives when not in use. I have done so following advices that i found in technical forums.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello - I saw a BSOD occur today that I'm not familiar with. I don't have a clue on how to fix this. Any help would be appreciated.

The computer was sitting idle at the time of the crash. I saw a STOP 0x000000f4 - CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION.

I have attached a SF_Diagnostic_Tool dump.

Thanks!

A:BSOD 0xF4, no dumps, increasing frequency

Hi Promo, welcome to TSF!

A 0x7A can be an indication of a malware infection, 0xF4 indicates that a process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.

I think a full wipe of partitions and a new MBR would be the route to take, once you've completed offloading your data to the ext. drive. Don't reconnect the external drive until you have installed a new A/V and then scan it completely before copying your data back.

The possible hardware errors (drive controllers?) will still need to be investigated.

Just built my new system, everything (hardware and software) installed without problem. I've now had several STOP errors occur when waking the machine after it's gone to sleep. Some times it will be fine, but every third time or so I get the BSOD. I've done a little poking around to see if there was an easy fix, but I'm a bit of a novice in this area and I can't find it.

A:New Build; BSOD on Wake, STOP: 0xF4

Hello there!

Seems like of the crash is pointing to igdkmd64.sys i.e. Intel Graphics Accelerator Drivers so I would recommend to reinstall it completely. Most of the times waking from sleep can trigger if an external componets are connected to USB so try to disconnected them. There is a slight chance it could be Hardware related since BUCKET_ID: X64_0xF4_IOERR_IMAGE_wininit.exe.

Background: I used to get BSODs when playing games, I would get a message in the systray that my video card driver has failed then a BSOD. I managed to fix this issue by reflashing my bios. However, now when my computer wakes up from standby, I get a BSOD.

Things I've tried:
Memtest ( 8 passes, no errors)
Cleaning the inside of the computer, removing dust with compressed air
Updating graphics card drivers (currently at the latest version)
Video memory stress test (passed)

Hi, I have a XP Sp2 installed on my computer.
Some weeks ago,I started getting BSOD's< THE PAGE FAULT IN NON-PAGED AREA>.
This happened when I tried to open any of my drive(C:,D;,E:;).
So,I ignorned them and used EXPLORE to open drives.
But,after some these BSod's started coming any time.
I thought it was because of service pack 3,so I clean installed my XP
and installed Xp sp2.
But,now I has gone even worse.
BSOD 0xf4,0x8e,0x50 have also started to appear in 3-4 minutes of opening the computer(if I run firefox,Coffecup's HTML editor,AVG Anti virus,etc).
But sometimes it runs fine for even 2-3 hrs.
Can PLEASE someone help me.

I'm running out of ideas, although my thoughts that the HDD is at fault could be very wrong. Any help is greatly appreciated!

A:BSOD once per startup: Bug Check 0xF4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION

Checking the HDD is a good start, some of the dumps reference WNetCore.sys driver which is part of websense endpoint software I would try removing this and if problem persists move on to testing ram

BSOD 0x50 and 0xF4 started randomly.
I keep getting BSODs about 15 min after starting the computer. The first time it happened I was playing Eve with Teamspeak and a few Chrome tabs open. It kept happening and got to a point where it would crash on the splash screen. Whenever it BSODs, the computer doesn't recognize whatever drive was the boot drive. I noticed after the first few times, it BSOD and it booted into an old boot partition on my secondary drive, and from then on it would not recognize whatever drive was the boot drive at the time until a cold boot. It also happened when trying to run a 7 DVD. This makes me think its a hardware issue (motherboard?) but I want to make sure first. I tried all sorts of different configurations of RAM and slots, so I don't think its that.

Also, most of the time crash dumps fail.

Hello mad0314.

You supplied only one crash dump, that is a Stop 0x50, caused by Ntfs,sys.

According to Carrona.org, STOP 0x00000050: PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
Usual causes: Defective hardware (particularly memory - but not just RAM), Faulty system service, Antivirus, Device driver, NTFS corruption, BIOS

And, a Stop 0XF4 is a Storage device related bugcheck.

Update your SSD's Firmware. It is a OCZ-VERTEX2. Get the update from http://www.ocztechnology.com/ssd_tools/.

Also, have a look. It is very important.

You must to free up some more disc space. Follow it: Hard Disk Space - Free Up and Recover . Also, you may use and external data storage for your data. Transfer them from C:, as early as possible.

An antivirus program and it's file system monitoring mechanism may also cause this issue, and AVG is a well known victim in this regard. Uninstall AVG using AVG Remover. Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.
Download, install and update those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.

You have noticed that the BIOS is also listed as a probable cause; and your BIOS version is not the latest.

Code:
BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. V1.12, 7/22/2011
But go for it if only the other options failed.

Let us know the situation after applying the suggestions.
If possible, plan to update it.

A:BSOD 0xf4 random moments (usually just browsing)

NOTE: I have severe eye problems. If I do not respond to your postings, please PM another staff member for assistance.

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diagnostics ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:





Quote:
H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
Hard Drive Diagnostics (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks


Because there are memory issues, and because at least one of the BSOD's blames your disk hardware - I'd strongly suggest that you perform the above diagnostics first.

Only 56 updates since SP1 - most systems have 60-70 or more. Please check Windows Update for any available updates.

The WER section of MSINFO32 shows 3 STOP 0xF4 errors all blaming core Windows components.

Uninstall Daemon Tools, then use this free tool to ensure that the offending sptd.sys driver is removed from your system: DuplexSecure - FAQ - Remove 64 bit sptd.sys
DO NOT reinstall it until we're done troubleshooting!!!

Uninstall EVGA Precision, as it's also known for causing BSOD's (FYI - Riva Tuner and MSI Afterburner also use the same components).

As this is a memory access problem (NTSTATUS of 0xc0000005) in a security module (csrss.exe), I'd have to suspect your Norton also. To test this out, please try this:





Quote:
Anti-Virus Removal:
Please do the following:
- download a free antivirus for testing purposes: Free AntiVirus
- uninstall the Norton from your system (you can reinstall it, if so desired, when we're done troubleshooting)
- remove any remnants of Norton using this free tool: http://us.norton.com/support/kb/web_...080710133834EN
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus, then check to ensure that the Windows Firewall is turned on.
- check to see if this fixes the BSOD's
NOTE: NEVER run more than 1 anti-virus, firewall, Internet Security/Security Center application at the same time.

Hi Everyone,

I'm newbie at here, so i need your guide at this forum
I've read the rules about how to post bsod problem.

Hmm, i always got bsod and then restart when i tried to play my game, Lost Saga Online Games. I don't know why.

This is my computer Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Procsessor
MoBo: MSI 790FX-GD70
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series
RAM: 4GB

The age of the hardware varies a lot, the video card is around 2 years old, the processor is around 1 months old and the mobo is around 1.5 years old

I've tried to re-install my game, but that's not solved my problem. And i have attached the files that u can analyze it.

Sorry for my bad english.
Thanks

I got this brand new VAIO S series laptop running win7 sp1 x64 with i5-2410, and I put in a SSD and another 4gigs of RAM (8 RAM total). I've got the clean install on my SSD and my original hard drive in the OD. All is sweetness except for when it randomly hangs or freezes.

It only hangs when I'm not doing anything full screen, I think, because it's never hung or frozen when I watched a movie or played COD.

I have gotten a BSOD twice now. It says STOP: 0x000000F4 and that the physical memory dump failed with status 0xc0000010. It also says to make sure everything is installed right and all that stuff.

I just don't get it.

A:This shouldn't be happening... BSOD 0xf4 (0xc0000010,,,)

Bugcheck 0xf4 = an object critical to Windows suddenly terminated

Exception code 0xc0000010 = STATUS_INVALID_DEVICE_REQUEST

The likely cause = your SSD.

Reinstall Windows on the HDD and see if BSODs persist. If no BSODs, RMA the SSD.

Hello all. I have, for the last few weeks, been getting bluescreens after having my computer on for a few hours. I can't remember the exact bluescreen error code, but I know it is a STOP error. I have included the output from DM Log Collector.

If you need any more information to help me debug this, just let me know. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I have also now added the output from running WhoCrashed.

A:BSOD after using computer for up to 6ish hours - ntoskrnl.exe

Make it sure that the SSD is running with the latest firmware.
OCZ Toolbox and Firmware Update Releases
How to Upgrade OCZ SSD Firmware | StorageReview.com - Storage Reviews
Also Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type “msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the “Startup” tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall the program at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Let us know for any further BSOD.

Hope everyone else is having a good Christmas I first built this PC two years then got ntoskrnl.exe computer BSOD now hangs, Random ago late in the first years the PC worked great Random computer hangs, then now got ntoskrnl.exe BSOD not a single problem Then in early this year my computer started getting errors this was when I still had windows first it was random I O write errors which doesn t cause hang or BSOD it simply shutdown my computer automatically after a few seconds then I occasionally get BSOD Back then I had to prepare for my high school exams so I didn t look into it and thought it was just a windows bug So fast forward to now last month I bought the windows and did a complete clean reinstall give up on all Random computer hangs, then now got ntoskrnl.exe BSOD my old files And the problem is still here well not exactly the same problem My windows doesn t experience I O write errors any more instead it started hanging stop responding with multiple applications completely at random both in terms of which application and when it Random computer hangs, then now got ntoskrnl.exe BSOD happens the computer would also stop responding when these application hangs freezes the mouse moves but nothing happens when clicking on the items and the only thing to do is a hard reset However since its not a BSOD it doesn t create dump files for analysis Luckily last night the BSOD happened and I got a dump can someone help me pls now the hang is happening everyday its unbearable Event viewer and reliability monitor doesn t say anything specific just app hang or unexpectedly shutdown My reliability index is at much appreciated I have upgrade my PC since I had the PC problems for example - Radeon HD to x GTX in SLI - OCZ modxstream W to GS w psu from Corsair So I think we can rule out the above My full spec - Nzxt Phantom white red case - Ga-z x-ud -b motherboard - I k CPU overclocked at Ghz - Kingston Hyperx ram - GTX x in SLI - Corsair GS w PSU - Vertex GB SSD for windows - Kingston Hyperx k SSD for often used programs - x TB HDD in Motherboard Raid for games storage I have tried running memtest on my ram all of it passes no error I tried disable my CPU overclock too but the problems is still there

A:Random computer hangs, then now got ntoskrnl.exe BSOD

If you're overclocking, please stop the overclock while we're troubleshooting. Feel free to resume the overclock once the system has been stabilized.

SSD's were temperamental when they first came out, but their reliability has improved greatly over the last year or two. There are 2 things that MUST be checked on systems with BSOD's and SSD's:




1) That the SSD firmware is the latest available for the SSD. I usually can't see this info in the reports, so I rely on you to check it.
2) That the storage controller drivers on the motherboard are the most recent. They must date from late 2012 or later. This is ALL controllers, not just the one that the SSD is attached to. If involved these should be visible in the memory dump - but it doesn't hurt to check manually.



D: drive only has about 10% free space. Windows likes 15% free space in order to perform stuff "behind the scenes" without adversely affecting the system's performance. Please free up 15% on ALL hard drives (you can get away with 10% on larger drives and won't notice a large performance penalty)

You have at least 5 hard drives. What is the age of your Corsair GS800 Power Supply?

Please update the Intel Management Engine (yours dates from 2010):





Try these links:
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...ngine&lang=eng
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...ngine&lang=eng
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...ngine&lang=eng

If that doesn't work, then try these Lenovo links:
Intel Management Engine Interface Driver for Windows 8.1 (64-bit), 8 (64-bit) - Notebook
http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/down...DocID=DS032435

Finally, here's the link to the search I used:
https://www.google.com/search?q=inte...ient=firefox-a

FWIW - It's a feature that allows you to manage the BIOS features from within Windows (more technical stuff to be found here: Intel? Active Management Technology (Intel? AMT) Start Here Guide (Intel AMT 9.0) | Intel? Developer Zone )



Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web.

If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

Hello and welcome Conqueror mate Imust tell you straight away I ma no expert at anything much and certainly notthat data you have listed. I have seen several references in other places andin Wikipedia to this ntoskrnl.exe being to do with HDD and RAM problems http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ntoskrnl.exe

So what I might suggest is that yourun a drive test and then a memtest to eliminate them. I have looked for the WD test but the site is terribly convoluted but I think this is the one you want WD Support / Downloads / SATA & SAS / WD Black

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/105647-ram-test-memtest86.htmlthisone you will need to make a bootable disk set the BIOS to optical (or USB ifpreferred) boot the machine and let it run for at LEAST 8 passes unless theerrors come up straight away. Takes fair time to complete and some leave itrunning overnight.

No DMP files included in upload. Please try this method.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

0xFFFFFA800AA22E10, 0xFFFFF80003987270). WhoCrashed says its likely atikmdag.sys. Blue View mostly says ntoskrnl.exe and another unknown driver. Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling my AMD (13.9, 14.4, and 14.9) with no luck so far. After finding a loose ram module (recently moved) and reseating it, memory is testing OK after 9 passes with memtest. Never had this problem until recently and I did not catch it at first because it would only do it while asleep. I desperately need help from the windows seven forum experts as I am stumped as to the solution. Thanks.

PS I did post similar issue a few days ago before I tried installing new drivers but I can't seem to access the post now anymore to check for a response.

Hi, I have been experiencing BSOD the last 3 days for no apparent reason (no hardware or major software changes).

The PC will boot into the desktop and seem to be working normally then within a few minutes the system will become unresponsive and give a BSOD 0xf4 CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION, apparently caused by ntoskrnl.exe. When it automatically reboots the post screen shows that it doesn't detect the primary SSD connected to SATA Port5 (but can detect the secondary HD and Disc drive) and so just goes to a blank screen with flashing cursor until I hard power off.

When I boot into safe mode with networking the system is fine and stable.

I have performed a chkdsk /f on the primary SSD and it did come up with "File record segment 536352 is unreadable" 4 bad file records processed. I have also double checked for viruses/ malware, BSOD still occurs the same.
