BSOD if I didn't use the computer for like 15-20mins. Error 0x000000F4

This is brand new computer, maybe around 4-5months. If I constantly using the computer, then i wouldnt get the BSOD. But if i leave it on, and not using it for around 20-25 mins, it will jump to BSOD. After that my computer will restart, and it will go into black screen saying "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device". Also I could not put my computer into sleep mode anymore, every time I went into sleep mode, few second later it will automatically power on again. And i have to power shut down and turn it back on again in order for the computer to work again. And as for the system health report, it said there are no items to show in this view. So i have no system health report.

Processor: Intel core i7-2600k CPU @3.40 GHZ
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V LX -- Lucid Virtu Technology
Installed memory ram: 8gb
System type: windows 7 home premium 64 bit
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 1GB - EVGA Superclocked - Core: 900MHz - Single Card
Primary Hard Drive: 64 GB ADATA S596 Turbo SSD - Single Drive
Data Hard Drive: 1 TB HARD DRIVE -- 32M Cache, 7200 RPM, 6.0Gb/s - Single Drive
optical drive: LG BLU-RAY Reader Combo Drive Black

Would appreciate to have someone to help me out or give me information of how to fix this computer. If needed any other information, let me know. I will try my best to do everything to fix this problem.

No Dmps 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.

I can't find minidump on my C:Windows/minidump. I tried it twice, went to BSOD twice and i did not get the folder minidump or and file that has that name. I did go into advanced tab and change the startup and recovery settings, the location is at %SystemRoot%\Minidump, and unchecked the automatically restart as well. The disk space wise, C drive have 12.7gb and D drive have 807gb, so I think it should be enough for the minidump. still cant find the minidump. Is there other way for me to obtain Minidump?

There are several reasons that may prevent you from having a DMP file in the usual places.

If you control panel is not configured for small dump you probably will then find it in C:\windows and it will be called MEMORY.dmp. It will overwrite every crash.

Other reasons are if you have UAC turned off, if you have a small page file, or a page file on a different HD than the OS.


Have you searched for *. DMP?

If you cant find them try uploading your event viewer logs.

Please provide us with your Event Viewer administrative logs by following these steps:


Click Start Menu
Type eventvwr into Search programs and files (do not hit enter)
Right click eventvwr.exe and click Run as administrator
Expand Custom Views
Click Administrative Events
Right click Administrative Events
Save all Events in Custom View As...
Save them in a folder where you will remember which folder and save as Errors.evtx
Go to where you saved Errors.evtx
Right click Errors.evtx -> send to -> compressed (zipped) folder
Upload the .zip file here.

Most frequent error (by far) is BTHUSB. I would suggest as a start to remove the BT drivers at least to test.

I did removed the BT drivers, and this is my new event log. I still got BSOD though, after leaving the computer on for around 25mins without using it.

You can try perusing through
Bug Check 0xF4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
and
CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
as that is the best information available without the .dmp files.
