Windows 7: Page fault in nonpaged area - f4 - random bsod's.

Page fault in nonpaged area - f4 - random bsod's.

Hello, I've just started having this bsod problem a few days ago. It first happened when I was getting some food and I came back to see my windows couldn't find the proper boot drive. I restarted the pc and all was fine, but lo and behold, it bsod in front of me. I tried to find the bsod dump but it didn't save any of them, all I know is, it is Page fault in nonpaged area error and the 000 code ends at f4.

This happens randomly no matter what I do on the pc.

Attached SF diagnostics

Probably a failing hard drive.
Code:
BugCheck F4, {3, fffffa8007fad730, fffffa8007fada10, fffff800039ccd50}
----- ETW minidump data unavailable-----
Probably caused by : hardware_disk

The quick smart tests came out as passed on the 2 hdd's. As did all windows's own tests, no problems were found. I don't know how to test the SSD, but I notice it has a new firmware available, should I try it out?

Now I'm not having bsod's but mostly complete freezes where I have to restart the whole comp.

When it bsods and I let it come back on it's own, it doesn't find my Crucial M4 ssd and the other hard drive and instead places them with "removable media" or whatever it is in the boot menu.

Will do, if the problem persists after I've done everything I can do the SSD I'm using.

I found about this bug called 5000 hours bug which would cause these exact same symptoms around the 5000 hours usage mark and, what do you know, crystaldisk said 5500hrs
