There is normally a file associated with the stop code. I had one a few days ago caused by an audio driver. The file was cmuda.sys. That is only an example. Once you know the file you can search for it to find out which device uses it. The download and install the latest driver for that device and the BSOD should not return.

Also, it is a good idea to defrag the drives. I like to use Pwr Defragmentor. Seach and download it. It's small, effective and will run in the back graound.

You should also run chkdsk /r from a cmd window.

Good luck and let me know how it works out.

This error is caused mostly by hardware, meaning, update to the latest drivers and double check that nothing is broken on the inside of the laptop and check to make sure nothing is stuck inside the inputs.

Stop 0x000000f4

The error suggests that there is no bootable device available. Check if you are able to get to BIOS. Check for the hard drive . If hard drive is listed in BIOS, please run the diagnostics on the hard drive. If you get any error messages, then it could be an issue with the hard drive.

Error message STOP 0x000000F4

Okay, first, try to boot to Safe Mode (hit F8 while booting) and run System Restore. Go back to a day or two before your issue occurred.

Once restored, open up My Computer, right click on your C Drive, then click "Properties", then the "Tools" tab, then under "Error Checking" click "Check Now". Then, reboot so it can run the scan. You might have a hard drive issue that Chkdsk can resolve. Post back with how this goes.
