BSOD 0x000000F4 (WinXP Pro SP2)

  1. Hello,

    Could someone please advise on the origin of this error:

    The PC BSOD's after awhile with the following stop code:
    0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8A408DA0, 0x8A408F14, 0x805D11F8)

    Previously, the same PC used to BSOD with "kernel_stack_inpage_error (0x77), but after a clean rebuild this now shows up. (fresh format/reinstall)

    Some of the software being used on that PC is CrystalReports, SQL Server, .NET.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Attach your minidumps and someone should be able to help. That being said the 0xF4 error, from what I am reading, is a rare one. Several processes and threads are necessary for the operation of the system. When they are terminated for any reason, the system can no longer function.

    It usually points to bad memory including video memory. It is a hardware issue but finding out exactly which hardware is the task at hand.

    its strange but the BSOD did not create any memory dump log..

    my settings are set to dump a Small Memory Dump (64kb) to:
    %SystemRoot%\Minidump

    while in windows\, there is no minidump folder.

    =/ preventing me from further examining the problem. any reason why the log is not created?
