BSOD and reboot, error 0x000000F4 with 1st param. = 0x0000000000000003

Hello everyone !

I am new in that forum (actually in any forum...) since I was able to manage my crashes on my own so far but this time this BSOD is too good for me...

I have a Windows 7 x64 installed on a Dell studio XPS, and here is my issue:

I was doing a defragmentation and all of sudden the windows automatic update restart my computer...since then no way to get to my desktop..

What I have tried so far :
1)run chkdsk on the cmd -> no error detected
2) run the different safe modes -> cannot be loaded
3) restore system to a previous date -> do not let me select the hard drive. In addition, the only hard drive that could be selected is C: but windows 7 is on D: ....strange no ?
4) scannow -> but says I need to restart....wt...my laptop cannot restart entirely...
5) scannow with offbootdir and offwindir -> it start the analysis but a few secs afterwards says windows could not complete the analysis...

I am about to throw that laptop through the window..lol..

Before I do that, you help is welcome and very appreciated

Thanks for your answers and time.

We do need the actual 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.

It is almost impossible to spot trends from a single DMP file so if you have more than one please upload them. If you only have one please wait until the computer crashes again then upload both.

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.

Thanks for your answer.

I understand you need that...but the only thing I can run is the cmd from the CD...no safe modes work..

However, I checked the file in rep minidump and the only one in it was created May 23rd, 2010..So I guess I have to enable minidumps as you suggested..any idea if this can be done with the command window..?
