Windows 7: BSODs 1033, f4 and 7a, Mostly When Idle.

02 Feb 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
BSODs 1033, f4 and 7a, Mostly When Idle.

I tend to leave my computer running when it isn't being used, and lately it has started to crash and reboot. I've ran System Repair and System Restore to the earliest point possible (reformatted a few weeks ago) yet I'll return after a few hours, and find myself at the logon screen with a BSOD report.

Also, my S.M.A.R.T. diagnostic is giving a 303 error when I run a system diagnostics.

I've uploaded the dm log collector, and the SF Diag tool reports. If anyone has any idea as to what course of action should be taken, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

Hi ReedyCaves.

Follow Power Plan Settings - Change. When you are at Step 5 (B), set the "Turn off hard disc after" to Zero or never.

Also, remove the WD My Passport when the computer is going to see, just as a test. See if it is the same or not when the removable disc is not connected.

If it still throws a stop 0xF4 or 0x7A, test your hard disc with Seatools for DOS. Take both teh short generic test and the long generic test. Let us know the results.

Re-purposed this system off an old work computer; all new components, just continues to blue screen on me. 95% of the time is when I am away from my computer. The error codes are sporadic and continually change, although I've noticed they're repeating over time.
