Windows 7: BSOD after ~1 hour uptime like clockwork, BCCode: F4

BSOD after ~1 hour uptime like clockwork, BCCode: F4

Yesterday my computer started BSODing after about 1 hour uptime. I've uploaded a "grab all" as suggested and another minidump I saved before I had the grab all utility.

When I restart after the BSOD, I'm brought to the Intel Boot Agent which tries to connect to something (via the internet I mean), fails, and suggests I give it the proper boot media or restart. If I restart and do nothing I'm taken back to the boot agent. I have to go into my BIOS and point it to my SSD to be able to boot to Windows.

Any help resolving this is greatly appreciated!

Check for any file system errors and bad sectors using Option #2 of:Use this command with Disk Check:

Code:
chkdsk C: /f /r
Scan for any malware:Remove:

Code:
Start Menu\Programs\Driver Fusion
These driver installation programs usually install incorrect and unstable drivers, which then tend to cause problems such as BSODs. Most of these programs also install bloatware onto your onto system with their installers, and more importantly malware.

Sounds like the dreaded M4 power-on fault.

Quote:
Release Date: 01/13/2012
Change Log:
  • Changes made in version 0009 (m4 can be updated to revision 0309 directly from either revision 0001, 0002, or 0009)
  • Correct a condition where an incorrect response to a SMART counter will cause the m4 drive to become unresponsive after 5184 hours of Power-on time. The drive will recover after a power cycle, however, this failure will repeat once per hour after reaching this point. The condition will allow the end user to successfully update firmware, and poses no risk to user or system data stored on the drive.
This firmware update is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED for drives in the field. Although the failure mode due to the SMART Power On Hours counter poses no risk to saved user data, the failure mode can become repetitive, and pose a nuisance to the end user. If the end user has not yet observed this failure mode, this update is required to prevent it from happening. If you are using a SAS Expander please do not download this Firmware. As soon as we have a Firmware Update that will work in these applications we will release it.
