Windows 7: BSOD just sitting idle and randomly error0x000000F4

If the fault occurs upon resume from standby, there is a known problem between Windows and some motherboards when using multiple devices on IDE/ATA channels. The hard drive or cabling may be set wrong. If using PATA drive, confirm the boot hard drive is jumpered as the Master, or if SATA, have the boot drive connected to the master channel. Do no connect another device to the same channel (i.e. for PATA move a slave device on the primary channel to the secondary master). Confirm the hard disk cables are good and connected securely. (Microsoft article 330100)

Im currently performing a factory restore. Ill pick up an extra hard drive and load the backup image on it just to see if that fixes the issue.

What gets me is it is fine in safe mode

If it's fine in safe mode, then it's a driver issue, or hard drive failure. How old is the HDD? Try swapping in a new one.

You are correct.

I swapped drives and reimaged. All seems to be fine so far.

Thank you all for your help.

BSOD, Even while sitting idle
I have had this issue for a while, and now that I want to try and use the PC for more than word processing it can be a show stopper. The computer does a clean reset and comes right back up. It can go 4 hours sometimes or 20 mins sometimes. Thank you for the help guys!
