Windows 7: Random 0X000000F4 errors and no crash dumps written.

Random 0X000000F4 errors and no crash dumps written.

This is a new build and I've had these errors at totally random times. From right after boot to anytime along the way. The worst part is that I can't get any crash dump info..no matter what I've tried. Pagefile is big enough and the dumps are enabled. I'm pretty much a novice with just enough knowledge to assemble my machine and get it running...IF there are no real issues!

I'd really appreciate any help! Thanks!!

There are no dump files present:

Please reconfigure windows to collect the correct info
You want small memory dumps - "MiniDumps"

And here are the instructions for posting:

Tip   Tip
Ensure you click the "GRAB ALL" button and then wait for each window to appear in turn and then click OK

I had read and followed that tutorial with no success. I did not try the Create_Minidump_on_BSOD.reg. Maybe I should try that??

Yes please.
You may have to wait for a new BSOD before it will capture the new minidumps.

cheers

Well, I downloaded and ran the Create_Minidump_on_BSOD.reg but I'm still not getting any minidumps written. Does the fact that I'm running the OS on raid 0 using two SSDs have anything to do with that???

I doubt if this will help, but here's the whole error code: ***STOP:0x000000F4(0x0000000000000003,0xFFFFFA800FD67060.0xFFFFFA800FD67340,0xFFFFF80003195470)

Might want to run a Diag on your hard drive and if you have an SSD then update the firmware . F4 BSOD usually are caused by hard drives

I've been away for a while and just getting back to this. Thanks for the replies! Yes, I did try option 1 and still no dumps. Interesting thing about the SSDs, I have read some posts about those (Corsair) being problematic so I will try the update. Something else that comes to mind, this is in a Corsair Obsidian case with hot swappable drive bays. I was never really comfortable with those, maybe I'll mount the drives directly and eliminate that factor.
