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

zz, If no one replied to it then send me a pm with the link inside, and I will take a look. I do apologize, but like you said we are swamped, and threads do get overlooked by accident sometimes.

Primo, If possible just try moving your computer closer to the router, just for a temp time. This way we can single out if the USB was the problem.

Oh I was planning to run it all night with the USB wifi removed altogether. I do have a stupidly long ethernet cable I can use if I really need to get online =0)

And it *appears* that most PCI wireless adapters actually have short boards that may fit OK alongside my GPU! So if this little experiment works then that's a positive.

Well go ahead with your idea because that sounds smart to me. I never thought of that before actually. So thanks because you taught me something .

But yes, that is true. They are small. But give the first option a shot to.

Well alrighty then - so, it ran all day with no issue and when I got home I unplugged the USB Wifi and uninstalled its driver. Ran all night, played a few offline games and moved some files around (including zipping large stuff in prep for offloading if needed) to make sure everything was working - totally fine.

This morning I went out and picked up a PCI wifi card and installed it - everything seems totally fine so far. My fingers are crossed but just to be safe I'm not calling it fixed just yet.

Well if you do get any more BSODs please post back with the latest crash files. Hopefully it was just the USB modem that was doing it.

OKAY! So..... almost an entire week! Then, just about 15 minutes ago, the 0xF4 came back! =0(

One change, yesterday I installed a Wacom Cintiq tablet/monitor. But I had had one on this system before with no ill effects... Got the latest driver and everything for it.

One thing I see in the event log - since STILL no dump files - is a real abundance of those atapi event 11 errors. Controller error detected on IDE port 0 and all that.

I might be wrong but the f4 bsod is usually a Hard drive problem...
Now it could be the hard drive or the controller itself...

Atleast, that's what the f4 code represente in the database (of BSOD code)

Is there any way to determine whether it is the HDD or the controller? I don't wahnt to throw parts at a software issue or a reinstall at a hardware issue, but if it's between the mobo and the drive I *really* don't want to waste money on replacing the wrong thing, since no money and all...

OK, so, the stack of atapi errors are the only consistent thing that happens before a BSOD here. They have all been on IdePort0 thus far. I need to figure out which SATA that corresponds to.

My mobo has 4 SATA ports. Previously my optical drive was in port 4 and my HDD in port 3. I just swapped those. so, now...

HDD: SATA Port 4, ATA Channel 1 in devmgr
CD/DVD: SATA Port 3, ATA Channel 0 in devmgr

But which of these is IdePort0? I can't find anything in Device Manager, BIOS, nowhere that actually tells me.

I'm about to put a bullet in this machine =0(
