Hi Guys,

This is odd. I recently loaded Win 7 on my PC. I also upgraded the RAM to 4Gig.
It was sweet and ran flawlessly for months. Then whilst playing counter strike source the audio hanged along with the picture and the PC crashed.
Since then it simply won't boot.
Not even in safe mode.
I have booted from the Win7 disk and ran a startup repair which Blue Screened on me.
The system repair ran, and ran and ran. In fact it ran for two days before I decided that this wasn't going to work. Memory tests turned out ok.
Not sure why it would fail after months of great use?
I get this very long string of nonsense, which I know some one uber technical may be able to decipher but I can't make head nor tail of it?

STOP:0X000000F4 (0X0000000000000003, 0XFFFFFA8003BAFB30, 0XFFFFFA8003BAFE10, 0XFFFFF80002D7E5DO)

Nothing seems to get the OS to boot and I have been through all the features once I press F8 during the boot.

Apart from a re install, what should I be doing to rtectify this?

I truly appreciate any help.

Best regards

Chris

Appropriate hard drive diagnostic...would be my first step.

"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."

Per http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm .

I also upgraded the RAM to 4Gig

Check your Ram too.

Thanks for the responses.

I have checked the Ram by swapping them and both cause the same Blue screen. Memtest drew a negative, but I don't trust Ram these days, or the tests.
I may try and resit the CMOS battery to see if that helps?
The first blue screen i got had something like "memory_manager" at the top but unfortunately it rebooted before I could read it all. I have now disabled the reboot option but there is no more reference to the memory manager?

Thanks for all your input.

Was it 0x0000001A: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT? If yes, thens it's some to do with hardware, probably RAM. Have you tried with 1 stick in the computer at a time?

Yes it was that.
I have tried 1 stick at a time but I am not sure whether the machine has become corrupted whilst I was changing the ram around?
I will do another switch tomorrow.
The Motherboard is an asus PQ5 and it has 4 memory slots. The ones the Ram are in are yellow, I think they are the right slots referring to the manual.

I will let you know how I get on later.

Regards

Chris

Things have got worse!
I now have various errors one of which is this
STOP: 0x0000007E

However, if I boot from the Win 7 disk and try to do a system repair it goes all silly and reports back this load of info...

\windows\system32\drivers\ntfs.sys
STATUS: 0x0C000221

It will not load the files from the disk without this showing up? So I cannot go through any sort of repair stage :(
The memory was quite new, as was the Mobo, Radeon HD5770 and HDD.

I am now at a loss.

Help me guys before the thing gets broken into tiny fragments...

Best
Chris

Hi Jacee

I booted from the recovery disk as you suggested, however I soon realised that this was waaaaaaay over my head.
I didn't have the first clue what I was doing? Even after reading the documentation :(
But thanks for your advice.

Best

Chris
