Windows 7: BSOD 45 minutes after boot 0x000000F4

BSOD 45 minutes after boot 0x000000F4

Please and thank you for all assistance.

I've be struggling with this issue for a couple days now. I use a music program called "FL STUDIO 10", this is where the problem started but not entirely sure if related to.

I've tried many things and have had a shift in the issue. The last BSOD posting was *** Stop: 0x000000f4(0x0000000000000003,0xfffffa800a731b30,0xfffffa800a731e10, 0xfffff800037cb7b0)

Now after this issue my start up never makes it to the log in screen, I get the blinking underscore until I manually reset my computer. I've ran virus scanner and boot scanner and some spyware was found in accordance with Java, uninstalled java. Now the problem seems to occur every 45 minutes, It will freeze up BSOD, dump, then crash.

I then have to go into and manually set P1 as the boot drive (Avast, later uninstalled) and I'm back to my desktop.

I've also ran Checkdisk with no luck. CCleaner helped speed my PC up, no luck with the crashes. There are no new driver updates and I am doing my best to avoid reinstalling windows as I have a lot of data and no device to back up to.

So what can you guys gather from all this?

Hello sevenss, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please read the instructions here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, and post back with the needed information. One of our BSOD experts should be by later when able to further help.

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

But as it is a stop 0xF4, as you are saying, make it sure that the Firmware Update 070H to your SSD (Release Date: 04/02/2013) is installed.

Hello ARC!

Thanks for the assistance, I did the firmware update but the windows software installer is hung up on "Searching pre-configured driver folders" and when I start my computer, I have to enter the bios to manually set my SDD as the main partition or I only get the black screen with a blinking underscore.

Oh and I'm running as admin but my PC claims I do not have permission to access the file and I believe it's hiding all the dump files, anyway around this?

***UPDATED***
"Searching pre-configured driver folders" no longer appears after 2 restarts and windows update.

It is not hiding the dumps, but it may not give you the permission to copy etc the dumps elsewhere. Any of the two tools as per the BSOD posting instructions can do it.

Hey Archie, you’re awesome.

After all the countless things I've tried and time I spent, updating the firmware seems to be the fix for now. I have not encountered the BSOD after hours of running my pc. I’d like to say this is solved and thank you very much for the help; I'll keep you posted if any other issues arise.

Thanks again,
Sevenss
