BSOD 5 to 10 min after start up, Stop: 0x000000f4

Hello,

For a few days now I have been having BSOD problems. 5 - 10 min after start my computer hangs up, gradually loosing functionality until it finally crashes with a BSOD stating that a "process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated."

The problems first started shortly after I installed the logitech webcam C270. I'm not sure if that is the culprit but it appears that the C270 is somewhat infamous for causing windows problems.

I have tried using system restore, but all my restore points prior to the installation are gone for some reason (possibly because I used startup repair at some point).

I have also used the windows tools to check the hard drive and my ram and neither appear to have any issues.

I'm using Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.


(I will edit this post with the report files shortly.)

Make it sure that your SSD is running with the latest firmware.

First of all thank for the reply, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

That said I updated from firmware version 1.33 to 1.37, but sadly I'm still experiencing the same BSOD.

Run the tool again and upload the data in your reply post.

And upload screenshots of both the discs using CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World

Okay, I hope I did the right think with the screenshots:

Can you free up some space from both the C and the G drive?

Sure, how much space are we talking about?

I can free up a lot on the HD, but the SSD is hogged mostly by Windows and the massive pagefil.sys and hiberfil.sys files which I'm not sure I can delete just like that.

I freed up some space, but it hasn't solved the problem (in fact the BSOD are getting worse, though I doubt that has something to do with what I did).

Stop 0xF4 is usually a storage related issue. So we should minimize storage related problem areas first.

Can you open the computer and apply the SATA cables on different unused ports of the motherboard?
