I have this problem occasionally, I think it has only happened so far when I watch videos online. I attached the system dump and also have a perfmon thing but it's too big to upload. I can upload it to sharebeast or something if someone would still like to take a look. I'm using Windows 7 and have an Asus P8Z77-V motherboard.

Well, this is really starting to suck. I tried to start it up today and was met with another blue screen. This one had no information except 0xF4 at the end, with a lot of zeroes before the f4 and after the x. Http://imgur.com/MSvVg

I searched around and it seems like it is most likely a hdd problem, although my bios recognizes it. The ram also seems fine as I can see it in the bios and they all look to be about the same voltage. The only thing I did before this, which I doubt caused it, was reboot for a registry defrag. When it restarted to start the process is when I received the bsod. I'm really leaning to this being a hdd issue still so I will try to get a boot cd and see what happens. The computer will turn on, but after the Windows loading screen, it goes into that same bsod, so I can't really run any diagnostics.

No, the only other option besides starting normally is to try to fix it which leads to a system restore screen where my mouse doesn't work. I notice on the bottom left of that screen the top of a cmd prompt which says x/windows or something along those lines. Think it might be hdd because shouldn't it say c/windows?

That just allows me to change where I boot from, all the options are under f11. When I try to get into safe mode it hangs up on classpnp.sys

Ok, I have reported the issue to a moderator, who will be able to assist or direct you to assistance with your problem. If no one gets with you in the next day or two, I suggest that you repost in Am I infected portion of the forums. I had the EXACT same problems as you with a laptop of mine, but I can't assist you here.

FWIW: I don't believe this is a malware issue, since F4 STOP errors typically indicate a hardware problem. I suggest that you await some inputs from others here in this forum.

I would start with running an appropriate hard drive diagnostic.

I might be able to test it at a friends later this week. What program would you recommend I use?

The manufacturer of each hard drive has a utility for such testing available at the respective website. There are other diagnostics that also do the job but they are a bit more complex (IMO) than the manufacturer diagnostics.

Currently, there are really only two manufacturers...Seagate and Western Digital.

The label on your hard drive reveals who the manufacturer is.

You can just use Google and something like "hard drive diagnostic" to find out...or take a look at Free Hard Drive Testing Tools - Hard Drive Diagnostics - http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/tp/tophddiag.htm .

You can attach your drive to your friend's system...and run the diagnostic from his system...or you can run it from your own system. The diagnostic may require being burned to CD, following manufacturer instructions.

What is the brand of your hard drive?

Most of the major brands make a live cd that can be booted from the cd rom for diagnostics, so you don't have to go to all the trouble of removing your hard drive. You risk further damage by doing that. Plus you would have to change your jumpers to put it in another system. It could also cause damage to your friends system if done incorrectly. I can direct you to where to get the live cd once I know which one you have.

Ok I'll just burn that cd and a boot cd at his place then. I'll find the drive soon.
