BSOD F4, most likely hardware related.

I have started receiving F4 BSOD crashes in the past month.

Today I have decided to format everything, however, I still started to get more F4 BSOD a few hours afterwards.

These are the dumps. If anyone could help me identify the problem.

Dumps are not enough to debug a stop 0xF4 BSOD. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Attach the data with your reply post.

BSOD F4, more often when USB is used

I've been getting BSOD F4. They happen especially if I attach a Nexus 4 or USB stick via USB. They also happen without, but the frequency is significantly lower.

I have also had the BSOD in Safemode with Networking enabled. This also happened when I attached the nexus 4.

Attached is the data I got with the dm log collector.

I have tried a format, but still have the problem. I'm afraid it might be hardware related, but if I could only identify which component is at fault, then at least I could replace it.

I would like to add that everytime, preceeding this F4 BSOD, is that the HDD LED will turn ON solid. Then a few seconds later, I will not be able to select anything or right click with my mouse, then my windows 7 windowes will crash (dissapear), like taskbar, any windowes that were up, etc. Then a bit later, it will BSOD.

Please, can anyone help me figure out what is wrong?

You should have continued in your previous thread despite of making a new one. We will merge these two.

You have Samsung Magician installed. make it sure that the SSD firmware is up-to date. Also post screenshots of both teh SSD and HDD using CrystalDisc Info.

Not only disc error, display error is also noticed. Stress test the Graphics Card using Furmark.
Video Card - Stress Test with Furmark
Take a screenshot of the furmark window before closing it. Upload the screenshot for us.

Also roll back the display driver to an earlier version. Because 14.9 WHQL is giving issues to some cards.

Let us know the results.

Here are the results.

I rolled my graphics back to 13.9 as I remember those were stable when I used them. And I'm only using a 7970, so I assumed any newer driver won't really benefit me.

If furmark image is too small I left it for 1:06 mins, standard clock 925,1375. temp reached to 76șc.

I'm really concerned this is a hardware issue, since my BSOD in safe mode w/ networking.

First, 13.9 WHQL is a brilliant choice! Stick with it and see it it yields any more display caused BSOD.

CrystalDisc Info shots look good. Have you made it sure that the SSD firmware is up to date?

Thank you for reply.

SSD is up to date, I did the update through Samsung Magician a few months ago.

I will report when I get any more BSOD's and re-upload a new DM log if that happens.

Another BSOD. I've uploaded again the DM log. I can update the attachment if you require more instances of BSOD's I get.
