Windows 7: BSOD F4, most likely hardware related.

windows 7

Hi. I have RMA'ed my motherboard, and received a replacement. I no longer get BSOD's, but it still "freezes" as per my original post, however, this time, instead of ending in a BSOD, it will un-freeze after a few minutes. Same things occur, the HDD LED is solid, left, right click no longer works, no program is responding. However, windows does not start crashing (applications windows do not start shutdown, or I lose my internet explorer taskbar).
I have also replaced my SSD with another, where windows is installed.
When the latest happened, I went into windows event viewer, and the following 2 errors happened.
(In this particular instance, the freeze happened when I opened Slingplayer)

Source: SideBySide; EventID: 80
Activation context generation failed for "C:\Applications\Application Files\Slingplayer\Slingplayer Desktop.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "" on line . A component version required by the application conflicts with another component version already active. Conflicting components are:. Component 1: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\ Component 2: C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\
Source: VMI; EventID:10
Event filter with query "SELECT * FROM __InstanceModificationEvent WITHIN 60 WHERE TargetInstance ISA "Win32_Processor" AND TargetInstance.LoadPercentage > 99" could not be reactivated in namespace "//./root/CIMV2" because of error 0x80041003. Events cannot be delivered through this filter until the problem is corrected.

I would suggest that you have nothing hooked to you computer except, monitor, keyboard and mouse until your problems are solved. Nothing at all. No cables wires do dads of any kind.
Also no over clocking of anything. CPU, RAM, Video card ect. until your system is fixed.
Don't install any new programs, games ect. until your system is fixed.
When it's fixed add one thing at a time and run your system and see what happens.



First F4 code BSOD, it was exactly when I inserted a USB wire (to mini-usb, the ones used to charge androids) into the mobo's frontal USB 3.0 slot (case only has 3.0 in the front). The wire was not attached to any phone or tablet, so just the USB wire by itself.

***Then let Arc know if you are still having problems and what they are.

We also need complete system specs please make sure you include power supply and all security programs.

These two tutorials will help you do that.
