  1. I was browsing the internet when suddenly the BSOD occurred. This is the 3rd time it occurred. I didnt install anything weird besides the latest Windows Live 8.0

    The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000f4 (0x00000003, 0x86400580, 0x864006f4, 0x805f9f88). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini090106-03.dmp.

    I'm running XP SP2 with 1Gb RAM.

    Thanks.

    All your minidumps crash at csrss.exe. This is the Microsoft Client/Server Runtime Server Subsystem and is a critical system file. They all have a bugcheck of F4. See below.

    0x000000F4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION

    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. One user, who experienced this on return from Standby mode on Win XP SP2, found the cause was that Windows was installed on a slave drive.

    This could be caused by a corrupt OS or a corrupt hard drive.

    Run a complete disk check. Click start/run and type chkdsk /f /r and press the enter key. Follow the onscreen prompts and reboot your computer. Windows will check your hard drive for problems. Depending on the size of your hard drive, this can take quite some time.

    If that checks out ok, try running a Windows repair as per this thread HERE.

    Let us know the results please.

    Regards Howard :)

    Windows has finished checking your disk.
    Please wait while your computer restarts.


    This BSOD occurs randomly, I was running firefox during all 3 time it occurred. Basically I reinstalled firefox and uninstall some other softwares (magicdisk, poweriso). For the last couple of hours it does not appear.

    Since this is a HDD related problem, go downlaod a diagnostic utility from the manufacturer's website and run it, just to make sure you don't have any suprises one day..
