Windows 7: Constant Bsod/freeze

Constant Bsod/freeze

Hi everyone,
i've been experiencing constant system crashes followed by BSOD for a while now, and still haven't figured out what might be causing them.
I already verified both disks (the ssd and the hdd) with dskchkr and kingstontoolbox, and didn't get any errors.
Disconnected the HDD, and changed my Boot disc (sdd) SATA port, but kept getting constant crashes and BSOD. Sometimes a black screen to "Reboot and Select proper Boot Device" and press a Key", but after restarting i could get into the safe menu and boot windows normally.
I also tested my ram with memtest86 and got a lot of errors during the hammertest,which led me to believe this is a ram related problem.
The BSOD error starts with Stop:0x000000f4(0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA8008......, 0XFFFFFA8008......, 0XFFFFF.............)

I tried to enable minidumps, by following the instructions, but the folder's still not showing and the .dmp files are not being generated

Thanks in advance for any help.

There's nit much in-depth analysis can be done without the dump files, but a couple of things of note. A 0xF4 is a CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION which we can't assess without the dumps, do you run CCleaner regularly?

MemTest86 is a crap inferior program, you need to run MemTest86+.

Download and run MemTest86+ to test your RAM. RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Note   Note


Run MemTest86+ for at least 8 passes. Ideally set it off before you go to bed and leave it overnight, we're looking for zero errors here. A single error will show something's going bad with your RAM.


Uninstall Daemon Tools, a proven cause of BSODs.

1. Uninstall Daemon Tools via Add/Remove Programs.
2. Download the SPTD standalone installer and perform the following steps.
3. Double click the executable to open it.
4. Click the button shown below.

If the button it is grayed out as shown in the image, there is no more SPTD installation on your system and you can just close the window.

I uninstalled daemon tools and the driver, but after a while, the system crashed again, returning a black screen with the message "Missing Operative system/ Reboot and select proper boot device"
the pen with memtest86+ was already inserted when it displayed that message, after removing it it simply said "Reboot and Select proper boot device"
then i went to the BIOS and the sdd was nowhere to be seen, so i kept getting the blackscreen with the above message when trying to boot into windows.
I also changed the boot order to "boot from usb" but couldn't perform any test with memtest86, because it didn't load the prog, and instead gave a black screen with the first message "Missing Operative system/ Reboot and select proper boot device".

The full BSOD error:
Stop:0X000000F4 (0X0000000000000003,0XFFFFFA8009056B10,0XFFFFFA8009056DF0,0XFFFFF80002FD2E20)

upon returning, after leaving my computer off for a while, i turned it on and it boot into the safe mode menu, after that i started windows normally, but it's just a matter o time b4 it crashes again.

I got memtest86+ running after formating the micro sd with sdformater (sd+usb adapter combo) and after letting it run overnight i got 9 passes with 0 errors
i also discovered that what was causing the BSODs was the sata power suply cable that was powering both the ssd and the hdd, and that after replacing it everything returned to normal
i haven't experienced any crashes since then yet, but if i do i'll let you guys know
i also want to thank the user who replied to my post because it's not easy to answer to every single thread that is posted here daily

Hi all, lately i've been having the same issues i had on my first post.
But this time, after giving me the BSOD, windows is able to generate the .dmp files.
i would appreciate if someone could give them a look for me.
last time i solved it by switching PSU cables, but this time i don't know if that will fix it.
i just wanted to be sure the BSODs were caused by the PSU before jumping to conclusions.
thanks in advance

please, can someone take a look at the .dmp files i posted earlier?
i unplugged the hdd the other day and left only the ssd on, and it's been running well ever since
this left me wondering if it was the psu or the hdd that were causing all those problems
i would really appreciate some input from you guys/girls
