BSOD 0xF4 while browsing.
Okay so my issue is pretty irritating to say the least.
Doing nothing out of the ordinary, full screen youtube video of a usual sub and my screen locks up, i manage to get out of full screen mode only to be slapped with a bsod.
I'm writing from a laptop because now my computer will not boot, STOP ERROR 0XF4 and now nothing. I cannot boot in normal or safe mode and when booting from Windows 7 disc, the OS does not show up in the selection where I want to repair.
I run my OS on an SSD, OCZ Vertex 2 120gb to be precise and the drive does not show up on the windows install screen, the error repair screen or even in bios.
Please note I have not recently installed or really changed anything to do with my pc, the latest alteration was using msconfig to stop iTunes, hamatchi and push from booting on startup.
Now I cannot boot into windows and I cannot clean install on either my SSD or HDD.
Here is as close as I can get to an accurate list of specs for my machine and due to the inability to start I cannot get access to any mini dump files
Intel Core i5
120gb OCZ Vertex 2 SSD
GeForce GTX 580
I can't get much more specific than that because I'm a tool. Running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
I would really appreciate help on this, I'm lost without my pc.
edit: Also might be worth mentioning when I get to the repair screen when I boot from the windows 7 dvd, my keyboard deactivates and I cannot use it for command prompt and the like, which only adds to frustration.
edit 2 : After scouring the web for solutions none of the ones I can find actually apply to my specific issue. The PC will not boot past starting windows, normal or safe. The SSD does not appear as a drive for repair or fresh install.

I notice you did not state what type of MoBo you have. Please let us know.
Please try a different SATA cable and ensure that it is seated properly. If that doesn't work, try this;
Try doing a power cycle of the SSD. The following steps should be carried out and take ~1 hour to complete.
The above steps were a result of: Why did my SSD "disappear" from my system? - Crucial Community
While that may not be your drive, a power cycle should be the same on all SSD drives. See how the system responds after the SSD power cycle.
