  1. Um, hello.
    Im having this error on my laptop (Win XP)
    Suddenly, out of nowhere a blue screen pops up and my computer restarts.
    I did a anti-virus scan but nothing came up.
    The error code is f4.
    I have attatched my minidumps. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, no minidumps, but...

    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.

    Try the following:

    1. Run memtest for a minimum of 7 Passes.

    2. Do a full harddrive diagnostics.

    3. Check your temperatures. Laptops can get hot.

    4. Run chkdsk
