Windows 7: BSOD while idle, error 0x000000f4

07 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 2008 Server R2
BSOD while idle, error 0x000000f4

Computer is recently built running 2008 server R2. Everything seemed fine until a couple days ago when I started coming home to a BSOD. The code is always F4 (Critical Object Termination) on ntoskrnl.exe save for once when it crashed on a bios update.

Since then I have updated my bios to the latest version, removed a troublesome NIC card (not yet replaced), and tried unsuccessfully to find a pattern to the problem.

sfc /scannow comes back clean. There is no overclocking. Hard drive load does not seem to be a factor. Hard drive scans have come back clean. Disabled Symantec Endpoint Protection with no effect. Malwarebytes reports clean. Not sure what else to do now. I've seen it run for 10 minutes and crash. I've also seen it run for 24+ hours before it crashes again.

Left the system running using Driver Verifier for a while (3+ hours) with no issues.

Hello matrixhacker and welcome to Sevenforums.

BSOD Analyse

Do you run any SSD by the chance of it? I've heard people solve their winit.exe crash by updating their SSD firmware.


Looking at your bugcheck it's likely that a memory corruption event was triggered. Though a driver could be causing the memory to be borked, but we're usually suggesting a memory test before moving forward. Do a scan with Memtest86+. Memtest is a scanner that'll check your sticks for errors.

Note that the below instructions may break your WARRANTY rules. If you're unsure check manuals, separated warranty papers, stickers on computer for secure permission.

To ensure that we'll know if it's the slots on the motherboard that's broken, or the sticks itself - we have a little procedure we'll recommend. Remove 1 stick, scan the other with Memtest in the current slot. After 7 passes, move the stick to another slot and scan, and so on and so forth until you've scanned all the sticks, and all the slots, one by one.
