Windows 7: random BSOD 0xF4

random BSOD 0xF4

Hi all,

I recently reinstalled windows 7 (after a full format) on my laptop (which was working fine but getting a bit bloated). Ever since I keep getting random freezes/BSODs. I have no clue what is causing it since sometimes it BSODs immediately after system startup, sometimes when installing windows updates, sometimes after being idle for an hour, ...

What did I do already:
- opened it up, checked all cables and removed dust
- ran memtest (ok)
- reinstalled windows AGAIN
- updated all drivers from asus site, installed all windows updates
- ran verifier (it always causes a bsod immediately after system startup, no matter what drivers i select) but to be honest, i have no idea how to use it

I have tried to run sfc /scannow but somehow that makes my system crash every time. (update: of course, 30mins after i typed it system scan completed succesfully, without finding any problems)

Maybe most difficult thing is I almost NEVER get a (mini-)dump file after such a BSOD. Up untill now (after like 100 bsods) I only have 2 minidumps, which I attached. I looked into them but understanding is beyond my capabilities ...

Does anyone have any idea?
much appreciated!

Kind regards,
