  1. Hi, more problems with the new computer.
    I have got a blue screen with code 0x000000F4 twice now, once when copying files across from my old hard drive and once as soon as i logged in.
    Critical object termination apparently. Any idea whats causing it?

    I had that a while back when my PC was new and it ended up being some recent software I had installed. Go into safe mode if necesary and uninstall recent software/ hardware, reboot and see if you get the same problem.

    Hmmm...it a new pc ive just installed hundreds of programs...is there any way of troubleshooting which one??
    Also...is there any chance its damaging the hardware??
    If it isnt then ill just put up with it untill i have more time to spend solving the problem.

    The full wording of the error message code is: *** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x82087020, 0x82087194, 0x805d1142) Beginning dump of physical memory
    Four things to note:
    -As I installed windows several files would not load (utopia~[1-4].wav, Cyclad-z.inf Cyclom-y, plus some others)
    -On leaving the computer on for a an hour or so I noticed a strong electrical smell when I came back
    -The blue screen usually comes when i click my user account on logon (twice there once when i was loading stuff from the old hard drive)
    -Memtest86 showed RAM to be fine

    Is it possible I have loaded too much onto my psu? It's an ANTEC TPII- 480P (480w if you hadnt guessed)
    Its powering:
    WD Caviar RE 160GB S300 8MB
    CORSAIR 1GB XMS2-6400 240DIMM CL5
    LITEON CD-RW 52xR
    LG DVD + - R/RW 16x
    SAPPHIRE Radeon X1600XT 256MB PCIE
    GIGABYTE GA-M55Plus-S3G AM2 nForce 430
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200 AM2 2.2GHz
    Is this too much? Or is it more likely my psu wsa faulty?? Or is it somthing completely different???
    I'd be grateful for advice people have.
