Windows 7: BSOD - 7A and F4

BSOD - 7A and F4

Hello there, I got encouraged to post here because I have had problems with BSOD over the last few days on my new system, not extreme, but enough for me to find it a problem(since its a 14days old system).

First i had the 7A error, then after some tests etc. I reinstalled windows and yesterday i got the F4 error.

I am suspecting a faulty PSU as it can make a weird ticking sound after longer uptime(and its 110% not the fan as it only spins up at heavy load and I have manually disabled every fan by fan in my system and still had the noise: Stemme0002.mp3

But ye i suspect the PSU as its been two diffrent hardware malfuntions according to the errors and because it says that sound. But this guy was persistent that i also had the Guru advises from this forum! So I though, its always nice to get some more PoV's.

heres the .dmp file:
031513-6318-01.dmp

Its the only one i have, as its the only BSOD i have had after windows reinstall.

I have done, memtest86, prime95+furmark, checkdisk and more than i can even remember, to try pinpoint the problem. Everything in my mind, leads back to a faulty PSU.

I'm checking that but it would be helpful having all your files.

Grab all, zip and upload following the instructions: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

Do you have a SSD?

Thanks Vista King!

@ OP, have you checked for a firmware update for your SSD? Because both those bug checks, 7a and F4 are related to Storage devices.

I honestly though i had done the latest firmware update! but seems im far behind! i have updated firmware on my SSD but its 1.3.3 - You sure the one you have posted to is for "Corsair Force Series 3 240gb" ? And I did a bios update through the ASRock Internet update in the UEFI.

Thanks for all those, very helpful.

Right now update the firmware of the SSD and let us know if it is stable.

Run SFC scannow: SFC /Scannow Command - System File Checker

Check your hard drive(s) for errors by running chkdsk: Check your hard disk for errors

Disk Check

And keep us posted.
