Windows 7: BSOD when doing random things. Mostly games though 0x000000F4

BSOD when doing random things. Mostly games though 0x000000F4

Hello all, thanks in advance for any help with my issue im having here.

BSOD shows no Memory_management code at the top or anything similar. Only the stop code 0x000000F4. Has happened consistently when playing rocketleague and HEX shards of fate. Although once or twice it has happened when I had skype screen share going, along with discord chat and OBS broadcaster.

My dump files are uploaded. Things I have done are run memtest86 for 8 hours. Passed 7 times? Maybe 8 with 0 errors or restarts.

Really hoping that there is just something obvious in these dump files. I could reseat my RAM and graphics card I suppose and reapply thermal paste to the CPU -.-' Maybe use some compressed air and clean everything while its all disconnected. First though I would really appreciate it if someone could dissect these dump files and tell me some obvious thing that is causing the problem so I can fix it ^.^

Thanks again,
Shawn

Bumping is a not allowed thing, it is recommended to read the Forum Rules

Both bugchecks 0x7A and 0xF4 are present, indicative of a problem with the hard drive as we can see in the code below.
I suggest that you test your hard drive according to below instructions.

KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR (7a)
The requested page of kernel data could not be read in.  Typically caused by
a bad block in the paging file or disk controller error. Also see
KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR.
If the error status is 0xC000000E, 0xC000009C, 0xC000009D or 0xC0000185,
it means the disk subsystem has experienced a failure.
If the error status is 0xC000009A, then it means the request failed because
a filesystem failed to make forward progress.
Arguments:
Arg1: fffff6fc400099d8, lock type that was held (value 1,2,3, or PTE address)
Arg2: ffffffffc000000e, error status (normally i/o status code)
Arg3: 00000000c3220860, current process (virtual address for lock type 3, or PTE)
Arg4: fffff8800133b148, virtual address that could not be in-paged (or PTE contents if arg1 is a PTE address)

Noted about the no bumping thing. I was being impatient, forgive me please.

As to the code shown below, which dump is this taken from? The latest? Because if I can recall I think there were a total of 12 dump files uploaded? Also, I went ahead and swapped my graphics card just for the heck of it and my bsod's have completely vanished. I did none of the above suggestions regarding my harddrive.

By any chance could someone look at the dump files again and maybe try and keep in mind that it was the video card that was causing the issue? Or, if better, could someone explain why my HD could be failing but swapping my video card temporarily fixed the issue?

Again, any help is much appreciated thanks,
Shawn

I've taken a look at a lot of dumps, all are 0xF4 or 0x7A, most of us will say that this combination of BSODs is an indication to the hard drive.

So again, is there a logical explanation why swapping my 760 for a 750 graphics card has resulted in 2 full days of rocket league and hex without a single bsod or restart?

Yes there is, but the best guess I can give is this:
Basically there are I/O actions to the hard drive from what I see now is the Nvidia display drivers, my guess is that the allocation of the I/O actions to the page file was improper given that allocating a tag to the pool where the I/O actions were saved gave a pagefault which resulted in a few other faults what eventually resulted in a bugcheck.

Please note that this may not be correct, this is a wild guess as there undocumented function calls + I'm not very good with understanding the functions based on their names without documentation.
Code:
fffff880`033a1778  fffff880`0f42bf98Unable to load image nvlddmkm.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for nvlddmkm.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for nvlddmkm.sys

Well I hope someone in the future will benefit from this post. Ill mark this as solved. To clarify, what stopped the bsod's was a swapping of my video card.

Thanks for all your help axe0,

Cheers!
