Windows 7: BSOD:: BCCode: 116; BCCode: f4 (mostly f4)

02 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
BSOD:: BCCode: 116; BCCode: f4 (mostly f4)

Hard drive failed in late October, replaced with SSD.

Started getting BSOD whenever doing anything graphical (flash in a web browser, or a game) in November. Tried Driver Fusion (|MG| Driver Fusion (Driver Sweeper) 1.4.0 Download) and installiing older NVIDIA drivers, this reduced the freqquency of BSODs to the point where they'd only happen roughly once a night and I could mostly ignore it.

Any help diagnosing would be greatly appreciated. My thoughts are replacing motherboard and RAM, I suspect driver controller might be to blame.

Did you make sure to update the firmware for your SSD and update your drive controller & chipset drivers as well as the BIOS? All of those elements are involved with drive operations compatibility patches are often added to them to ensure your SSD is compatible with your system.

Yes, these all seem to be involved with your SSD drive. There are crashes occurring because during disk I/O operations the storage device being accessed ended up missing, typically due to failure to respond to the OS. I cannot ascertain from these tiny minidumps what storage device it's trying to access, nor can I discern if it's even attempting to access a legitimate device and isn't just scrambling the device object number. However I can say it fits the bill with common SSD issues that stem from incompatibility or just plain bad SSD drives. Again, make sure all the aforementioned items are up-to-date.

What SSD do you have? Certain brand names like Samsung (considered best so far) and Crucial are often reliable, and some - like OCZ and Rosewill - are about as much a gamble as winning the lottery. Brand name makes a big difference when it comes to reliability, so it would be best to pick your options wisely. Even so, even the most reliable brands can still churn out a dirty drive or two, that's to be expected.


Consistent pattern in the crashdumps are c000000e NTSTATUS errors residing in the crashing thread's callstack. The error means the device attempted to access does not exist. Again, as stated before, minidumps don't hold info on the specified device.

I did flash the BIOS when I rolled back the graphic card's driver. The SSD is an OCZ Agility3, I'll see if updating the firmware has any effect.

Thanks very much for your help.

I understand. OCZ is one of the least reliable brand names in the SSD industry. If you're lucky and get a stable one, they're crazy fast, but you may have to run through several replacements before you find one. I hope the firmware update works for you, but if not, it may be in your best interest to look for another brand SSD. Samsung, Crucial and Intel seem to be the top dogs in reliability, with Samsung currently sitting in the throne.
