Blue screen showing Stop: 0x000000F4

original title: Blue screen showing Stop: 0x000000F4(<some more hexadecimal numbers>,<Hexa>, <hexa>, <Hexa> )

My computer flashes blue screen intermitently and then crashes.

The stop #  shown on blue screen is 0x000000F4 (<some more hexadecimal numbers>,<Hexa>, <hexa>, <Hexa> )

What does this F4 means? A hardware error if yes then what in particulraly like HDD, memory, mother board or Battery is not fine.

Also, the even logger take it as a crital error and the XML details are shown below:

BCCode: F4    0x000000F4  <-- read this link
http://www.faultwire.com/solutions-fatal_error/A-process-or-thread-crucial-to-system-operation-has-0x000000F4-*1241.html

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Look in the Event Viewer to see if anything is reported about those.
http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vista/vista_event_viewer.htm

MyEventViewer - Free - a simple alternative to the standard event viewer of Windows.
TIP - Options - Advanced Filter allows you to see a time frame instead of the whole file.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some methods to possibly fix the blue screen issue. If you could give the Blue Screen
info that would help. Such as the BCC and the other 4 entries on the lower left. And any other
error information such as STOP codes and info such as IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and similar messages.

As examples :

BCCode: 116
BCP1: 87BC9510
BCP2: 8C013D80
BCP3: 00000000
BCP4: 00000002

or in this format :

Stop: 0x00000000 (oxoooooooo oxoooooooo oxooooooooo oxoooooooo)
tcpip.sys - Address 0x00000000 base at 0x000000000 DateStamp 0x000000000


This is an excellent tool for posting Blue Screen Error Information

Many BlueScreens are caused by old or corrupted drivers, especially video drivers however
there are other causes.

You can do these in Safe Mode if needed or from Command Prompt from Vista DVD or
Recovery Options if your system has that installed by the maker.

The log might give you the answer if there was a corrupted driver. (Does not tell all the possible
driver issues).

Also run CheckDisk so we can rule out corruption as much as possible.
