Windows 7: BSOD Critical_Object_Termination 0x000000f4

BSOD Critical_Object_Termination 0x000000f4

Started getting BSOD a few months ago started out 1 or 2 every week or so but has gotten progressively worse. At the start it only happened while playing W.O.W or other MMOs, now it will happen at random on boot up. Before it happens there is always a chirp but I've not been able to pin point from where.

I've done 4 fresh installs the last one I wiped hard drive completely before the install, after a few hours the problems start up again. CHKDSK MEMTEST 86+ show no issues after 3 passes.

Thanks in advance.

Recommended antivirus program for Windows 7 based on stability compared to others:-
Do not start the free trial of Malware Bytes; remember to deselect that option when prompted.

Run a full scan with both (separately) once downloaded, installed and updated.
Let us know if there's any improvement.
Then take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.

Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Thanks koolkat77,

I logged on and tried to do as you suggested about 3 mins in I hear the chirp then BSOD. I tried to boot back up 4 times, on the fourth got a blue screen with STOP: c0000135 file %hs is missing, this was a first. I tried to reboot 3 more times kept getting same error. I decided to do a fresh install got as far as when the computer restarts the first time and got same chirp and BSOD. Finally got the install to finish but now if I'm on my computer more than 5 mins it blue screens.

I have been able to run the Hard Drive Check but for some reason Saetools doesnt see my hard drive.

Well, F4 is usually storage/hard drive related.

Is your hard drive detected in BIOS?

Have you tried the DOS version of Seatools?
