Yesterday my HP laptop shut off unexpectedly and when I rebooted it, about 30 seconds after logging in and double clicking chrome, the laptop BSOD'd on me. It's giving me the STOP: 0x000000F4 error with some other parameters. It will BSOD almost immediately after trying to load anything other than simple folder opening and even then it will crash after a while. I did some poking around online and found that there was the possibility of a driver error so I enabled Verifier.exe and rebooted and the computer would BSOD immediately after the Windows logo comes "flying in".
Now, I can operate the computer in safe mode so I booted into it and disabled verifier and I'm now able to boot into Windows regularly again, albeit it BSOD's pretty soon afterward. I wouldn't really have a problem as the HDD is under warranty BUT because I bought it from some little shop nearby and he upgraded it to a 750 from 640, HP won't replace the 750 and I'll be damned if I'm out 90gb's.
I have bluescreenviewer on the laptop and can view the crash report but it's not very helpful, it blames: ntoskrnl.exe+5053dc
Anyone have any advice? I can supply any additional info you guys want. Also I'll screenshot the bluescreenviewer page later as I can't do it right this minute.
Oh, I also ran the HP diagnostics and it returned as FAILED on the HDD every time, memory passed as did the other tests.
