STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x832C7420, 0x832C7594, 0x805D2970)

  1. Hi,

    Installed some new memory in my laptop and all was fine until i started to get blue screens, saying physical memory dump. The company i bought the memory from asked me to check the memory was seated properly, then asked me to try it in the other slot and finally update the BIOS version.

    I have tried formatting and reinistalling OS with new and old memory in place and the error screen still occurs.

    The full error code is:

    *** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x832C7420, 0x832C7594, 0x805D2970)

    There is nothing that seems to trigger the error message it just happens when it wants to.

    Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated as suggestions from the memory company have not solved the problem.

    I would suggest you use your HDD Manufacturers Test your HDD, I once installed new RAM on my Laptop I knackered my HDD and had to replace it.

    Are the Errors Random or at Certain Times?

    It happens randomly.

    Ran tests on the hard disk using seagate program, it passed all the tests.

    So i don't know what is causing the problem

    Any other suggestions?

    Ok try running Memtest86 to test your RAM.

    Memtest86 Instructions
    Download the pre-built version of Memtest86 (Link Below) and burn it onto a CD using ISO Recorder (Link Below) other ISO burning software will work as well (E.g. Nero). After this boot off the CD and start the test going and let it run for 3-5 hours (Minimum of 7 Passes) or Overnight which is best.

    Memtest86 - http://www.memtest.org/
    ISO Recorder - http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/isorecorder.htm

    If any errors are found then if you have more than 1 RAM card you need to take 1 out at a time and run the Computer until the Errors stop and then you would have taken the Faulty RAM card out.
