Windows 7: BSOD 000000xF4

BSOD 000000xF4

Hi all. Got this error today. very frustrating as i have no idea what it was. Ended up loading up bios reverting to factory settings and switching it off at the back and it's behaving again. but i've had weird things happening on the odd occasion. normally a restart resolves this but still annoying.

also when these bugs do happen i get a long pause or sometimes a boot error from this screen (see attached image)

thanks guys

Do you have any USB devices plugged in that it could be registering as a possible boot device? I had a video capture USB device that caused similar problems; the system thought it was a USB flash drive for some reason.

I see you have two drives, an SSD and an HDD. How do you have your hard drives managed for data and system files?

I would suggest clearing the CMOS if it is not too much hassle: How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS)

Are you overclocking any hardware?

I had overclocked my processor to 4.0 with everything else on auto and haven't had problems for ages. I'm running a 2500K

Sounds like it would not be too difficult to clear the CMOS and then change settings back to how it currently is for overclocking. Whether you want to do so is up to you. It depends on how concerned you are with this intermittent problem.

A windows system process was terminated unexpectedly. Possible causes are hard disk errors... System file corruption... Viruses... Lack of Windows updates... Drivers...

How is your pagefile configured?

Also, run Disk Check with both boxes checked for all HDDs and with Automatically fix file system errors checked for all SSDs. Post back your logs for the checks after finding them using Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

Is your BIOS up to date? What about the firmware for the SSD? Chipset drivers up to date? See the Quote for SSDs in post #2 by usasma.
