Windows 7: Random BSOD, consistant error 0x000000f4

Random BSOD, consistant error 0x000000f4

So this error has been appearing ever since I built my computer. It pops up when I am playing games intensely and when I am casually browsing Chrome. When my pc reboots from the BSOD, my SSD (containing my OS) is undetected.

Run this tests on all of your hard drives first. Use the manufacturer's tools for the SSD, and use this link for all other internal or external drives (to include USB, eSATA, 1394, Firewire, etc): Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

Marvell Yukon service is having issues. Please:
- download a fresh copy of the Marvell Yukon network driver from the manufacturer's website
- uninstall the current software for this device
- install the freshly downloaded copy.

Your Bluetooth is disabled. Please:
- re-enable it
- update it's software/drivers
- then, if so desired, feel free to disable it again.

You have a 802.11 USB Wireless LAN Card - Windows 7 doesn't like these devices, especially when coupled with older (Vista era) drivers. Here's my rant on this:
Quote:
I do not recommend using wireless USB devices. Especially in Windows 7 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Windows 7 - and using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Windows 7 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful.
Your drivers for this device date from 2009.

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:
Quote:
There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website)
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).
- Use any manufacturer's utilities that you may have. If you don't have any, then try this free one (I haven't used it myself): Crystal Dew World
- Update chipset and storage controller drivers to the latest available from the manufacturer of the device (not the manufacturer of the motherboard). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard!
....NOTE: Recently (Nov 2011) we had BSOD issues with the Marvell 91xx controller and an SSD. You may have to switch controllers also.
- Replace the SSD with a platter based hard drive and see if that stops the BSOD's. If it does, then it's likely that there's a problem with the SSD OR an incompatibility with your system.
It's my opinion that SSD's aren't reliable enough (with current hardware) to be used on a system that needs to work reliably. Until I see reliability I will not recommend, nor will I use, SSD's for critical applications.
06 Dec 2011 - This post tends to confirm issues with certain SSD chipsets and certain controllers - [SOLVED] cant find the cause of BSOD F4 - Tech Support Forum
29 May 2012 - The frequency of BSOD's with SSD's seems to have been decreasing over the last several months. It may be approaching time to re-evaluate my stand on their suitability for use in production systems.
Loads of I/O errors blaming hardware_disk in the WER section of MSINFO32 (and the memory dumps show I/O errors also). Please run this free hard drive diagnostic: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure


Your XBox controller driver dates from 2009. While this particular driver isn't known for causing issues, other software associated with USB XBox controllers will cause BSOD's. For testing purposes, please uninstall the device's software/drivers and physically remove the device from your system. If it doesn't fix the errors, feel free to reinstall it once the system is stabilized.

If the above steps don't stop the BSOD's, please zip up and upload any new memory dumps with your next post - and we'll see what we can figure out from there.

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs

- Further info on BSOD error messages available at: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html
- Info on how to troubleshoot BSOD's (DRAFT): http://www.carrona.org/userbsod.html
