Windows 7: Random recurring BSODs, 0x000000f4 ntoskrnl.exe

Random recurring BSODs, 0x000000f4 ntoskrnl.exe

Noticed for the last few months that every couple of weeks or so, my computer is off when I come home. After looking in the event viewer, I noticed it mentioned something about kernel power and shutting off/restarting without a clean shutdown. I was never home to collect the minidump file before it was deleted by CCleaner (I forget to disable it), but finally got my hands on the .dmp. I've uploaded it here:

The system is a 2008 HP pavilion elite that I've since modified and is running Windows 7 Home Premium x64 . I have actually added a new PSU (750w OCZ, which may be the culprit) and a new graphics card (AMD Radeon 6870). The rest of the components are the same for the time being. Let me know if anyone needs more info...

Hard to tell from only one DMP but it appears to have been caused by your Symantec.


I do notice Symantec which is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials at least to test.
