Question about MSI K8MM3-V Motherboard

PC Cannot Boot

After I boot up PC and use for about 5 minute, it’s hanged for about 1 minute and turn to blue screen, given message;
A problem has been detected and windows have been shut down to prevent damaged to your computer. A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly or been terminated. If this is the first time you’ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears, follow this step:

Check to make sure hardware and software is properly installed. If problem continue, disable or remove new installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS Memory option such as Caching or Shadowing.

On error code read:

Stop: 0x00000F4 (0x00000037, 0x85602020, 0x86602194, 0x805FB046)
Beginning dump of physical memory.

When reboot and press TAB, it read:
Memory Testing: 1015808K OK +32768K Shared Memory

Detecting IDE drives----

It’s stop here and cannot boot further. No new hardware or software installs recently and all fans are working normal, so I isolate the power supply and take out the RAM (DDR 1) and re-install back, re-boot again and problem still persist. The next day surprisingly it can boot up but can work only about 10 minute and the problem repeated. I did try using another same working type RAM from another PC, still cannot boot up. Is that anything wrong with the RAM or Mainboard? On the Disable BIOS memory option, it cannot switch to BIOS mode despite DELETE key is press, so if to disable the memory option such as Caching or Shadowing is impossible. Please advice.
My PC is about 4years++ and the system is: Intel(R) Pentium 4CPU 2.4Ghz(133X18) 478 pin, Mainboard – MSI V Class VIA® P4M266A + 8235 Chipset Based P4MAM-V Series (MS-6787 v2.X), 1G Kingston DDR1 RAM(about 3months old), Window XP Professional with Service Pack 3.

"0x000000F4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION One of the many processes or threads crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated. As a result, the system can no longer function. Specific causes are many, and often best resolved by a careful history of the problem and the circumstances of the error message" - so it doesnt say anything !

- check u;re harddisk for errors (i see that some people that had the same error, had hardrive issues.). It cand be the harddrive beacouse u're comp stops at the Detecting IDE drives ...

- try doing a BIOS update! To go into BIOS settings read the manual ... "del" doesn't work with all computers !!!

- but i susspect that u're problem is overheating components ! Probably the processor or the motherboard chipset ! Check to see if the processor gets hot ! (with software, or just keep u;re hand on the cooler and see if it gets hoter than it should ). Do the same for the chipset ! (chipsets run preaty high in temperature, so it;s ok to be hotter than the processor!).

Boot from CD does not work.

You should definately be given the choice to boot from cd, when you press F2 to get into the bios and go to boot options, what boot options do you have?

If you go into the bios you should have the choice to boot from ide (hard drive), cdrom, floppy disk, network (on some) and try other boot media.

Are you going into the boot option in the bios by pressing F2.

Thinkpad R51 Blue screen


does this also happen in safe mode boot. (press F8 just before windows boots). If not then go to your event viewer and check the messages at the specific time,hour messages. for example. computer booted at 23:30. in windows around 23:31:10 and then blue screen. Go to safe mode. and look in the logs what registered at 32:31:10(around this time).

If not possible to boot in safe mode. Try to remove one of the 2 memory dimm(if you have 2). so you boot with 1. maybe 1 of them doesn't work good anymore.
