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.

My laptop boots halfway even in the safe mode and blue screen appears and restart the computer. what to do

Hi may I know what operating system you have on your laptop? If may be due to RAM or maybe with RAID or BIOS. Reinstall your operating system it will fix your bluescreen error.

BSOD problem on startup. stop: 0x000000F4. Acer Aspire One Running on Windows 7. Please help?

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.

Frozen blue screen w stop error. 0x000000f4 (0x00000003,0x82d4470,0x82d445e4,,0x80604498)

This is called 'the blue screen of death!' It could be hard drive, or memory or other things. Try starting up from OFF and tapping f12 - this should bring up the DELL Diagnostic program. If that fails, have you tried using the DELL restore disk? What Windows are you using?

I have an Acer Extensa 4630Z-4485 laptop. Occasionally ill get a stop error code 0x000000f4(memory Dump). I have to take the battery off to shut it off and i get another error code on start up. It seems to...

Best solution would be to invoke your warranty cause (hopefully 1 year, and not 90 days), since you could have a memory or other hardware problem. This could be a software problem, but seems most likely to be a hardware problem. Probably, the manufacturer will just replace the unit completely to give them more time to check the unit that you have now.

Media test failed, check cables

Sounds to me like there is bad sectors on the hard drive. Replace the hard drive with a known working one. If you still get that error message then at that point try different memory in the laptop.

If it still doesn't go away then its a motherboard issue at that point.

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 is the link you need to apply a HOTFIX for the problem. You do not need to open the laptop or reset your BIOS.

Sounds like the hard drive is starting to fail. Do you hear and occasional 'click-click', 'click-click'?. A new hard disk should solve the problem

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.
