Windows 7: BSOD Critical_Object_Termination (f4)

BSOD Critical_Object_Termination (f4) Help Please

I get this BSOD randomly, but the time frame between each BSOD is quite long something like 3 to 4 weeks. If it is time to crash the laptop crashes no matter how long I have been running it for. I use the laptop for long periods of times, and sometimes also do some casual video encoding without any issues, but after every 3-4 weeks I will get this BSOD. I did some poking around with the dump file and this is what i came up with. Suspecting the memory I have run memtest a couple of time, but they seem to be fine. All the BSOD that I have had have been the same.

Here is the original memory dump https://www.dropbox.com/s/1rtzrgskmw...EMORY.rar?dl=0 (980MB unpacked)

I did some searching on the forum, and found many having the same BSOD, most of the suggestion seems to be pointing towards a failing hard drive. I am on an SSD Crucial Mx100. How can I tell from the memory dump if the BSOD is related to the hard disk?

Your memory dump does not give that much information, but an F4 error is typically a storage error. Make sure your SSD has the most recent firmware update. It can also come from a drive other than a system drive. You can run Seatools on your Mechanical drives. Seatools is not made for SSDs, so I wouldn't trust the results and wouldn't recommend running it on the SSD. Please use the Seatools for DOS and run the short and the long test.

I have two drives, SSD and a WD mechanical drive which I am using through laptops DVD bay, through a caddy. I will run a seatools test on it, but could the caddy be a problem here?
The ssd is on the latest firmware

I would not think the caddy would matter at all. The only thing that could matter is the connections. Bad connections or bad wiring could not affect a DVD but could affect a hard drive. The caddy is basically just a holder. As long as the hard drive is secure and not bouncing around, I don't see how the caddy could affect anything.

I just tried running seatools, and strangely it does not detect the hard drive connected through the caddy. Is seatools capable of detecting a drive connected through the caddy?. If it should then could be a busted caddy. The smart status for the caddy drive reports no errors though

The bios also does not seem to recognize the drive connected through the caddy, here is a screenshot with the caddy



and here is the screenshot with the caddy removed and the DVD drive inserted




is it suppose to behave like this? I think the drive does get detected during POST, but I am not sure because all the messages on screen come and go very quickly

yes, the BIOS should detect every hard drive in your system during POST. That is the purpose of POST, to identify all the hardware in your system and initialize it. If BIOS does not detect it, there is a problem. The BIOS will detect it when the OS does not.

but windows detects it without any problems.

I't looks like it is detecting it as a CDRom, perhaps. I assume you don't have one of them, but it's listed.
