Windows 7: Repeated BSoDs w/o clear reason STOP 0x000000F4

Repeated BSoDs w/o clear reason STOP 0x000000F4

For the last several months i've been having infrequent BSoDs and since leaving my computer off for ~a week it has been nonstop.

Sometimes I just turn on my computer, it boots to desktop and immediately goes; other times I get into playing a game on steam (tropico 5 most recently) and some error will happen and computer goes BSoD.

1 shows summary page events, 2 shows administrative events.

Seriously I've been having a struggle with these. Also will note that when these started I had used a registry cleaner... idiotically. But it became more frequent for no apparent reason in the last few weeks.

Please let me know if I can post anything else to help!!

Hi olivert,

The crashes are a result of file system corruption.

Run chkdsk /r in an admin command prompt, press Y to plan the task on reboot and reboot the system.

NOTE: this task might take several hours and may look like it hangs. Do NOT interrupt it, it will finish.
Chkdsk usually doesn't show progress at the last stages which is to scan all sectors if they are bad or not. Depending on the performance, size, and status of the disk, it might take only a a few hours.

Hi, thank you for your help. I've been busy the last few days but I got that done this morning before work.

At this point I haven't tried anything to test the stability of my system.

The report after running dskchk /r is as follows:

Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.

A disk check has been scheduled.
Windows will now check the disk.
