BSOD Every 30mins to Hour Caused by ntoskrnl.exe?

Hey guys,

Built this computer for my Brother in law probably a little over a year ago and it just started doing some weird BSOD stuff. I've never ran into this before so I am hoping I can get some help from the experts. I did try re-seating most everything on the motherboard and unplugging and replugging all the cables which was one suggestion from a Google Search. Also installed the latest BIOS on the motherboard with no change. If you would be so kind to check out my dmp files and logs and give me some direction it here it would be most helpful!

Thanks,
Nahum

The particular BSOD you are having is a 0xF4 which is commonly caused by a failing hard drive:

Code:

things to try:

Fun the system file checker:

Quote:
SFC.EXE /SCANNOW
Go to Start and type in "cmd.exe" (without the quotes)
At the top of the search box, right click on the cmd.exe and select "Run as adminstrator"
In the black window that opens, type "SFC.EXE /SCANNOW" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
IF when the program finishes running it says anything other than "no integrity violations found" run the command two more times
If after the third run of the command there are still problems run the SFC command at boot
Also run the check disk command from an administrative command prompt:

Code:
chkdsk /f /r
and last try running some hard drive diagnostics:

Is the firmware for your SSD up-to-date?

Check for one and see if the stability returns.

Ran the SFC.EXE and the first time it said there was some errors and it repaired them. So then I ran it Twice more and got the, "no integrity violations found" spiel. Then I updated the firmware on the SSD drive as well to be safe. Will report back in an hour or so.
