BSOD After Sleep Mode 0x000000F4

After I wake my PC from sleep mode I get BSOD with 0x000000F4
I thought it was due to the large HDDs I have. I unplugged them and still the same issue.
I have the latest drivers for SSD, BIOS, Audio, Video.
It is a new build.

Hello Dark 7, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please read the instructions here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions if able, and post back with the needed information. One of our BSOD experts should be by afterwards to further help. :)

Sorry.

I have attached it now.

The issue happened every time my machine awakes from sleep mode.

I set the ACPI Standby State to S3 (it was S1) and coming out of sleep did not BSOD my PC. Problem with S3 is the LED lights on the fans are on and so are the fans as well.

Hi,

The PSU is a Hiper 630W Type-M. It is about 6 years old.
The website said I needed 350w recommended.
I have reseated all the cables.
I set my E:\ HDD with a paging file since my C:\ is a SSD.

This is a new install of Windows. It has all the latest drivers for the motherboard and I have already tried the SanDisk SSD ToolKit.
Did the Clean Startup (had to uninstall Avast) same thing.
Also removed all the extra Nvidia programs left only the driver and same thing.

Well it is pretty old now, do you have a known good spare?

That won't work to generate dump files.

I did set it to C:\ and when it BSODed it did not generate a DMP.

It was the latest.


I am thinking it may be due to the SSD as I have read on some forums that it has caused similar issues for people.

In that case please post a screenshot of the 3.3v, 5v & 12v values using HWinfo.

That wouldn't be too far off as 0xF4 are usually attributed to storage issues.
Did you try swapping SATA Data/Power and using a different SATA port on the motherboard?

It has been solved.

The issue was with the 6Gbit/s SATA port.
I have 8 ports. 1-6 are 3Gbit/s and 7-8 are 6Gbit/s.
My SSD (with Windows installed) was in port 7 (Its a 6GBit/s SSD). I tried port 8 and same issue.
Something funny I noticed, the BIOS only sees ports 1-6.
I tried it with the SSD in port 1 and it sees it in the BIOS and it now can go into and out of sleep mode without any issues.
It seems when you come out of sleep mode, because the BIOS cannot see port 7/8 Windows thinks the SSD is unplugged.

It is really annoying since I made sure I got SATA 3 motherboard and SSD for the speed.

I guess I need to contact MSI.

Thank you for your help.
Now to try and fix the issue with the USB 3.

In case any one else has this issue, I have posted this on the MSI Forum https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=175594.0

EDIT: I just noticed that my 2nd HDD (it's on port 8) gets disconnected after sleep mode. This is why it BSODed because the SSD was on port 7 and I guess the same thing happened to it as well.
