Windows 7: Recurring BSODs usually 0x000000F4

Recurring BSODs usually 0x000000F4

Hi all,

I've been having trouble with BSODs for some time now. I have no idea of the cause, as WhoCrashed gives either vague information or blames my webcam (weird?), and I would like to see if someone can point me in the right direction before I start re-installing Windows 7. This isn't because I can't be bothered to re-install it, it's only because I'm half way through a musical project which requires this PC, and much of what I need to finish the project is a little bit hit and miss on the software side of things - VSTs and plugins are routed all over the place and I don't wanna mess stuff up.

WhoCrashed has given me two reasons for the BSODs: my Logitech c920 webcam; and a kernel driver issue. I've attempted to reinstall and webcam drivers and it seems to have made no difference.

I've attached the necessary dump file which is detailed on the "how to" page for this forum.

Recurring BSODs
Been getting BSODs somewhat frequently over the last couple of months, outside of a few weeks where I was using my laptop instead of my PC. Seems to happen most often while gaming/loading a game, though sometimes it just seems random. I updated the drivers for my graphics card but I'm not sure...

I've followed the instructions and uploaded the required files. I had it configured for a kernel dump but for some reason, it doesn't work and no dump is created when windows crashes. For now, I've changed it to a minidump and when it BSOD's again, I will update the post if there it creates...

Noticed for the last few months that every couple of weeks or so, my computer is off when I come home. After looking in the event viewer, I noticed it mentioned something about kernel power and shutting off/restarting without a clean shutdown. I was never home to collect the minidump file before...

Thanks for taking a look :) A little over a month ago I began getting blue screens infrequently. This was the first time in years I'd blue screened, so I wrote it down - 03/13/10. This ramped up to a couple a day. Instead of asking for help then, I reinstalled windows (7, 64 bit), and lost my...
