Windows 7: BSOD at start-up, Error 0x00000F4

BSOD at start-up, Error 0x00000F4


I have this problem for about 4 days now. Everytime I want to start my pc I get the BSOD Stop code: 0x00000F4 (0x0000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8006718250, 0xFFFFFA8006718530, 0xFFFFF8000357D720) Just before the windows login. When I then reboot my pc I get the error please select another reboot option. Or, and this is very strange, when I leave in all the usb-cables I just see a black screen with a flashing white bar at the top left. Only like 1 of the 100 times I try I can start up my pc and than I get the BSOD after about 2 hours.

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.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

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. If empty (or non existent) please look in the following folders. C:\windows (the dmp should be called memory.dmp), and C:\windows\LiveKernelReports\Watchdog.

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.

I can't start windows anymore, it just freezes at the logging in screen, just before the moment where I would get the bsod. I also tried to do a chkdsk but it freezes at 29% every time.
