Windows 7: BSODs fairly frequent, 0xf4, no dump created

USB wireless adapters are known to cause BSODs with windows 7. For some reason Win7 does not like them at all. If you can, uninstall the drivers completely, and unplug the device. Then try to connect to your router via ethernet cable.

Crap. USB is my only option. I'm too far away to use a cable without it running across the house, and my GPU covers the slot where I'd be able to put an internal wifi card on the board.

Would you be able to move your GPU to a different slot?

I don't think so... it's just pretty massive on this board, but I will doublecheck to be certain when I get home.

Edit: The board has only one PCIexpress slot, where the GPU connects and the bulk of its components and its fan hover over the two PCI slots to (my) left. I could probably plug something in to the farthest PCI slot, but the GPU's fan would be either in the way or dangerously close.

I can look into slot extender cables I suppose...

Thanks Justin - I did update my last post about the slots after looking at a picture of the board online. Just one slot for the GPU but we might have a way around with slot extension cables.

Hey there. I'm having the exact same issue as you. No dumps being created, same error, everything.

We even both have Western Digital HDDs. That's a common thread between the two of us. Before, I had a Seagate 1TB HDD and had absolutely no problems. But I switched it to a brand new WD Caviar Black, and from that day forward I've had this BSOD problem.

Reinstalls, Formats, Repairs, Chkdsks, Memtest, etc. all come back clean as a whistle. The only thing that is "new" is the HDD.

The strangest part about this BSOD for me is that it doesn't occur when I boot up and go straight into a game. It only occurs when I open my browser. If I've opened my browser, I can and often do BSOD during games. But as I said, if I go straight into a game from boot-up, I can play the game for HOURS without issue.

Open that browser? Good luck gaming for 20 minutes.

Hopefully we can get this figured out!

zzsdkzz,

Please make your own thread and we can try and solve it. This way it saves the confusion.

But yes, give that a shot Primo,

HonorGamer, I did make my own thread and no one replied to it yet. I know you guys are swamped right now, so I have no problem waiting my turn. Not trying to derail this thread by any means.

Goodluck Primo!

Well, my WD HDD has been in from day one, though, and has operated for at least 5 months without fail before this started happening.

Funny, the vast majority of the time I am running a browser and Steam and nothing else.

I do not have the luxury of swapping in another drive, though. I can barely figure out how I'm going to pay for a PCI wifi adapter.

Hi guys, IO hope some one can help me out, my desktop PC is getting fairly random BSoDs (see zip file attched for data). It happens more often if im pushing the PC by gaming or something similar. I hope its just a driver glitch or something. Cheers! Jambon
