Random 0x000000F4

Computer sometimes randomly restarts (with or without BSOD).
Event Viewer says Error ATAPI: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Ide\IdePort1.
Verifier.exe says dumpATA.sys is not launched.
I have checked HD and memory from Windows rescue disk (and memtest86 too) - OK.
I am unable analyze the minidump file.

Result file from SF_Diagnostic_Tool is attached.

Thanks.
