How To Troubleshoot And Solve Blue Screen 0x000000F4
» Originally I would get bsods after the system would wake from being in sleep mode, but this morning I received one after starting the computer from shutdown. They are F4 STOP errors, and I am sure there is a way to fix them, I just need some help on where to start. After a few restarts to check the BIOS version and what not, the computer would no longer connect to the internet.
If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss. A hardware device, its driver, or related software might have caused this error. If your copy of Windows came with your computer, call the manufacturer of your computer. If you purchased Windows separately from your computer.
Check and reseat all cards, memory and cables (on both ends when possible) actually remove and replace - do not just snug. On a laptop about all you can do is reseat the memory and possibly check the contacts/connection to the hard drive. Memory could be the problem so if you have more than 1 stick swap them in and out to see if the problem follows one stick or try new memory. Antivirus/anti-spyware/security programs have been known to cause or have a role in this issue.
As for other kinds of blue screen of death, the causes can be a virus/Trojan infection(Trojan:Win32/Agent.AAQ), all you have to do first is to run an antivirus scan, and then use DLL Suite to fine tuen your system and clean the aftermath of virus removal. The associated dll file errors will be fixed at the same time this way.

Download and install updates and device drivers for your computer from Windows Update.
Scan your computer for computer viruses.
Check your hard disk for errors.
- LONNY KOOMPIN replied on March 12, 2013: » Many BlueScreens are caused by old or corrupted drivers, especially video drivers however there are other causes. You can do these in Safe Mode if needed or from Command Prompt from Vista DVD or Recovery Options if your system has that installed by the maker.If you update drivers manually then it is a good idea to disable Driver Installations inWindows Updates, this leaves Windows Updates ON however it will not install drivers which will usually be older and cause issues. If Updates suggests a new driver then HIDE it (Right Click on it) and then go look for new ones manually if you wish.
- OLLIE EVANS replied on March 14, 2013: » I thought that maybe my SSD was to blame. I have the Intel 330, and I found many complaints similar to my issue. I tried one test where I assigned the letter S to the reserve space found on the boot drive, then did a diskpart, volume check, and they matched. It may come down to me either buying another, non Sanforce SSD, or a newer HDD (mine are SATA I).
- TIMOTHY WELSH replied on March 14, 2013: » Yes the SSD could be the issue. Have you tried different cabling? Maybe install Windows on another hard drive? MBfilt64.sys is the creative audio/sound driver. I would try installing Windows on a different drive other than an SSD as a test.
- OLLIE EVANS replied on March 16, 2013: » I changed the power setting for the SSD to never power down when the computer sleeps. SSDs start up so fast from complete shutdown that you can be less concerned with shutting your machine off at night.
