Lenovo G550 Laptop BSOD STOP 0x000000F4 won't boot

Q: Lenovo G550 Laptop BSOD STOP 0x000000F4 won't boot

I have been trying to fix a friends Lenovo G550 running Windows 7 Home Premium. The laptop won't boot and gives BSOD error "STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x887925C8, 0x88792734 ...)" the codes in brackets change each time. It then does a crash dump and reboots.

There has been no new hardware or programs installed recently (apparently).

These are the steps I have taken:
Boot in all versions of Safe Mode (same BSOD).
Boot to Last Known Good Config (same BSOD).
Windows Startup Repair (can't solve problem reboots to BSOD).
Windows Restore (can't restore).
Windows Memory Diag (no problem found).
Removed one stick of RAM boot (BSOD), replace and remove other stick of RAM boot (BSOD).
Remove and reseat HDD.

My instinct tells me it is a HDD fault. Does anyone have any other suggestions or is the next reasonable step to buy a replacement HDD and reinstall Windows?

Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Lenovo G550 Laptop BSOD STOP 0x000000F4 won't boot

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Just noticed there are no grippies when I unlock the Taskbar on my new (to me) Lenovo G550 laptop.

Any idea how to get them back?

A:New Lenovo G550 Laptop - no grippy when taskbar unlocked

I have a Lenovo G500 and can't recall any specific bloatware that interferes there, but it nonetheless corrupts system files which could be the problem with the taskbar unlock anonmaly.

If this is still the factory install you can try to Clean Up Factory Bloatware then check the system file integrity, but you'll have a much better install if you Clean Reinstall Windows 7.

HiI having a problem with the bluetooth on my Lenovo G550 serial number **** laptop. It came with  in-built Bluetooth software and drivers. It was working perfectly fine for several months.But, then recently a problem cropped up. Now, when I click the Bluetooth icon, click the adaptor on and then click 'Show Bluetooth devices', nothing really happens.The adaptor turns on and then after clicking 'Show Bluetooth devices, the search for locating bluetooth devices continues but no device is located. ( & this is when the bluetooth on my samsung mobile has been turned on).Earlier, it could easily located my cellphone. Similarly , if I try to browse files on my laptop by using the bluetooth on my mobilephone even then it doesn't work. I just get a message on the cellphone ie.  'connection lost'.I have carried several scans on my PC in past few days and the files always come out as clean so that's not a problem.I can't understand why I can't browse files when the bluetooth on both the laptop and mobile are switched on and both the devices are on discoverable mode.
Also, my hot key combination Fn + F5 does not show wireless settings menu now. However, it had been working fine for several months so this is a recent problem.
Please help. Thanks.
 
serial numbers removed for your own safety. 

A:my lenovo G550 laptop's bluetooth can't discover devices

re-installing power management will fix your function key combinations. then you can activate it by pressing fn + f5 > on/off

Hi lordkyoto.

A stop 0xF4 is a storage related issue, though the crash dump is not there.

Hey there! There are no dumps in your log file but you mentioned the CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION(0xF4) bugcheck.

This could mean that there's a virus, a failing harddrive, failing RAM stick/s. Run the tool that came with your SSD. Also run MemTest86+ for 8 passes. It must be MemTest86+. RAM - Test with Memtest86+ Scan your computer for viruses using Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

I've run memtest and found zero errors, I ran Orthos for 12 hours with zero problems passed 4/4.

My hard drives are SATA's and roughly 4 or 5 years old.

This is one of the stop errors I've gotten:

Could you upload some MiniDumps it can help to solve the Problem.

Also how long did you run Memtest86 for?

Orthos is basically the same as Prime95,
What Test or Tests did you run on that?

Small FFT's should be run for testing the Processor, thats assuming that Orthos is similar to Prime95.

Hi guys,

I've been having BSOD's with stop error 0x000000F4.

It doesn't happen often but I noticed that it crashes whenever I put data DVD's in my drive. It seems like it's trying to read it and then freezes (not responding), thinks around 10 seconds and comes to a blue screen.

I suspected that I could be with the media that I use. So I tested the same DVD that I suspect caused the BSOD and it work fine. (tested it just now)

Hello,

I just ran into an issue with my computer getting BSOD and I'm not sure why. The full error is as follows:

*** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003, 0xFFFFFA800BE41060, 0xFFFFFA800BE41340, 0xFFFFF8000378E660)

I'm able to boot into the computer but not able to do very much. It will BSOD very quickly if I try to do anything more than just look through folders. If left alone it will stay up for a while but eventually it will BSOD even when just sitting at the desktop. I've made no recent changes to the computer hardware wise or software wise. It seems like it's actually freezing during the BSOD as well as it sits there saying it's collecting data for crash dump and initializing disk for crash dump and doesn't go past that and restart on it's own. I checked the Minidump folder and despite multiple crashes there is only one file.

Also the specs of the computer are as follows:

A:Win7 BSOD STOP: 0x000000F4

First, the minidump file was corrupted so it was impossible to read.

Second, your error code is defined as 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.


Can you boot into Safe Mode and if so does your system remain stable? Also, standard diagnostic procedure would run Memtest on your memory and a hard drive diagnostics. Perhaps a virus scan and/or a Windows repair as well.


Do you know how to run any of these procedures?

Hello all,

BSODs started January 15th, no software updates or hardware installations within 24hrs of first BSOD.

Running a custom build that has been stable for years.

Ran rootkit/adware/virus scan, didn't turn up anything.

Wiped and Reinstalled Windows 7 (I don't use the internal hard drive for anything but running my OS and local files like drivers and antivirus programs)
BSOD persisted figured it was probably a hardware issue.
-Ran Memtest86+ utility no errors
-Ran CrystalDiskInfo, S.M.A.R.T. read no memory errors
-Checked RAM integrity
-Updated GPU Driver to latest version.

please find attached .zip as per posting instructions.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Hi, I've used this site before to diagnose and fix BSOD problems in the past. Hoping someone can help me with this one. The PC is a Dell XPS L702X, seems to run fine until random BSOD after 10-20 minutes of usage.

The crash doesn't create a dump file, so I tried changing the setting to create a small dump file, but it doesn't create a small file either. It does however, stay on the blue screen until you shut down power manually, so I was able to write down the error codes. Here they are:

STOP: 0X000000F4

0X0000000000000003

0XFFFFFA800B87BB30

0XFFFFFA800B87BE10

0XFFFFF800031827B0
I have no idea if those codes help in any way, but I thought it was worth a shot.

Zip file attached.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since 9/1 I have been getting BSOD at least once a day after 8 or so hours of operation. I might be doing something or doing nothing. It doesn't seem to matter. The latest stop code was 0x000000f4(0x00000003, 0x85288da0, 0x85288f14, 0x80604418) This has happened 11 times since 9/1. Never the same parameters and three of them were 0x0000008e but the last 7 were 0x000000f4. I have run memtest 7 times. No errors. Ran Spybot, AdAware, full dos scan anti virus, dumped a number of trash programs just because I could. Even ran two registry cleanup programs. Searched MSDN for help, the answer may be there but I got lost pretty quickly. Searched Google and ended the same way except I found you guys. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I built this machine about a year ago and its been a really stable work box up until really recently. Now it seems like every hour or so it gets 'stuck' freezes up and displays a BSOD.

The first couple times it happened it gave a 'KERNAL_DATD_INPAGE_ERROR" 0x0000007A

So I've scanned the disks looking for bad sectors, defragged, updated the intel drivers, rolled back with a system restore, and pulled the memory out, one by one, but I'm still getting these BSODs.; Now it seems to be consistently the F4 error.

I'm posting this quickly since I'm sure it'll freeze soon, please let me know if there is any additional info I could provide to make troubleshooting this any easier. I'd love to avoide completely reformatting and reinstalling, especially if that wouldn't even help.

I'm attempting to upload the zip of my mini dump now...

Hi all.

Just built my new system 3 weeks ago:
Windows 7 Home Premium Retail 64-bit
i5 2500k
ASrock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3
8GB G.Skill RipjawsX 1600MHz RAM 9-9-9-24
60GB OCZ Agility 3 SSD
1TB Western Digital Caviar Black
MSI GTX 560 Ti 2GB Twin Frozr II

The BSOD has been happening randomly, but most frequently when in Google Chrome. In which case, an error message would appear saying something along the lines of 'Chrome has crashed'. This was shortly followed by a BSOD.

I downloaded BlueScreenView from nirsoft.net and ran the test on my latest dump file. The result came back with this: 476ba0efaf03464f259cb3379b6696cd.png

Something called 'ntoskrnl.exe' is highlighted in red.

What is this file? Is there a fix for this? The only thing on ms 60GB SSD is Win7 and a few programs, therefore a fresh install isn't too much trouble (if a fresh install would be the be all and end all of the issue).

If any more info is required, please ask and I shall provide.

Cheers
Joe.

This is my first post on this forum and the first place I have posted looking for some help. I have heard great things about you guys and was recommended by various sources and people I work with in the IT field. I have been trying to debug this particular BSOD for 5 days through various troubleshooting steps/procedures. I fear the worst, as I may have to replace my current SSD. Hopefully someone can help. Thanks in advanced for any advice and hopefully any solution that may come out of this.

I have attached the MINIDUMP/crash dump file.

The BSODs happen regardless of what I am doing on the PC in a normal boot. I am currently running Win7 Ult x64 on a 60GB SSD with a 500GB HDD for my programs, etc., with an Intel i5-2500k quad core proc @ 3.30GHz, 16GBs (4x4gb 1600mhz) of RAM and an Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 twin frozr twin II from MSI. I have 28GBs free space my SSD where the OS is installed. I have re-seated all of my cards on the board as well as checked and tested all cabling. (replaced cables) I have ran several mem tests and chck disk tests to no avail. I have tried uninstalling recently installed drivers and have even tried updating out of date drivers. The BSODs still occur. I have yet to run Driver Verifier though.

I have also used driverview to see if there were any drivers that were installed/created/modified around the time of the first BSOD error. Only one driver sticks out to me:

First off... your web site has assisted me on several occasions. Keep up the great work!All right, here is my situation. Been running 32 bit version of Vista for about 1.5 years now. Same system is in use now as when I installed vista. Only internal hardware changes have been the addition of 2 Seagate SATA HDD about 8 months ago. OS has always run off my WD 74Gb raptor (around 3 to 4 years old). Other than that, I have added a new keyboard (Logitech Dinovo Edge around 3 months ago) and a numeric keypad (Logitech V250 Cordless Mouse/number Pad around 2 months ago. Only keypad is used). Around 2 to 3 months ago, I started getting the dreaded BSOD (Stop Error Code is always 0x000000F4 (first parameter is 0x00000003). Upon restart of the computer, I get a message that Windows has recovered from an unexpected shut down. When checking for solutions it comes back as stating it is my nvidia nforce SATA driver. I updated it and the problem did not go away. After a few weeks of this I started noticing that the BSOD only happened while my computer sat idle for around 5 minutes (no interaction on my part). What I have noticed to this point is that I am able to run a defrag or a virus scan without any further interaction on my part and the computer would stay on. Pretty much anything else and after around 5 minutes or so, the dreaded BSOD would appear. That's about all I can remember at this time.My computer specs are as follows:ASUS Crosshair MBAMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Co... Read more

I recently put together a new system a few weeks ago, which works fine except for the occasional hang/bsod, which I've noticed happens only when I have some type of flash/streaming video running. I think I've experienced this crash about 7-8 times now in the last 3 weeks, which is a bit disconcerting.

The exact error symptoms:

Programs that are power-heavy (like games, the video in question, video rendering software, etc.) freeze immediately.
Whenever I try to close them using the red X in the upper right, there is no response, from there or from the right click -> close in taskbar.
Programs with smaller footprints still function in the background - cpu monitors, voip programs, etc.
When I hit ctrl + alt + delete, the default windows background comes up and a message appears: "Preparing Security Options ... " and hangs for a very long time.
Generally, I hit the power button now, but I have waited it out (for 10+ minutes) and a BSOD pops up with the message- "stop: 0x000000F4" and some other letters that I've since lost the paper I scribbled it on.
If I attempt to restart the computer instantly, the computer freezes at the motherboard BIOS screen. Only after a hard shut down, a little wait, then can the computer be truly restarted.

Steps I've taken (or attempted) to fix this issue:

Updated all drivers.
Updated Adobe flash player (since it seems to happen only when flash video is playing)
Attempted to update firmware for my SSD (people have pointed ... Read more

If the folder doesn't exist or is currently empty please do this to make sure we have a dump file to check to work with after your next crash.
The report alone isn't going to offer a concrete answer in something causing so many things to crash.

There are many problem here. I cannot get to the underlying cause untill you resolve these.

1-sptd.sys a huge cause of BSOD's

Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

You can use MagicDisc as an alternative.

2-AVG. remove and replace with Microsoft security essentials

Hello,

I recently bought a new laptop. After a few weeks I started getting random BSODs. At the time I though this is related to VMWARE and other stupid things I have done. I did re-install Win7 after that and BSODs disappeared for about 2 weeks. Now they're back again.

My laptop has a 22Gb SSD on which I keep (only) Win7 installation. There is another 750Gb drive on which the rest of the data is stored.

The STOP code is 0x000000f4. I did a lot of google-ing and the one thing I found is that this is a very unpleasant crash code to get

I will note that these crashes come randomly. There might be hours apart, or, like today - after I first booted my system.

The symptoms are: the system starts to freeze. Applications become unresponsive. And then the mouse cursor freezes. It stays like this a few seconds and then the BSOD ensues. At one point I noticed I could navigate on my HDD partitions while I could not navigate on my SSD one.

Windows event logs are incredibly un-useful At the moment of crash there's no events logged. The minidumps tell me that there was a page fault in either csrss or wininit. Sometimes it will tell me that I/O could not complete (assuming to restore the pages).

Disk checks - OK, Memory checks - OK. Tried to load a lot on the SSD to simulate a crash and nothing.

Hello,

I found some good tipps here on the forum, but I couldn't find a solution. I have random BSOD since 2 Month. Sometimes with minidumps, sometimes without. I run a dualboot system with Win7 64bit and XP 32bit.
The crashes appear most of the time on Win7 and really rarley in XP,altough I'm using XP more often and longer. I checked my HDDs with Samsung HUTIL and my Memory with memtest. Prime Stresser. No result.

I thought it was the ssd who cause the bsod, but its only 6 month old and only got 500hours of work. I asked for help in the crucial forum. I got only one response, that it maybe the graphic card driver. In the windows service log. There is an error entry about an "peernetzwerk gruppenzuordnung (i run a german version)" peernetwork group assignment, before the BSOD appears, but not always

I have the last minidump, crystalinfo and the ntbtlog.txt attached. The minidump and the ntbtlog.txt are in the zip file.

My System:

Intel Q660
MSI Neo2-Fr
Corsair Dominator DDR2 8GB running @800Mhz
SSD Crucial M4 128GB Firmware 000F
HDD Samsung Spinpoint HD701
DVD Burner
nVidea Geforce 7300GS
RME Hdsp 9632
UAD 1 DSP Card
USB Devices

A:BSOD STOP 0x000000f4 Continously Occuring Every 40~min

I have already ran memtest86+ for several passes, computer held up for 8 hours until I ended the test. RAM came out clean with no errors. Same results with the Windows Memory Diagnostic.

I have performed CHKDSK /F /R on both of my drives. Drive C: with my OS always tests successfully with no errors. However, Drive E: the Western Digital Caviar Black always results in my computer crashing in the later stages of the chkdsk. I have tried this with both normal start up command prompt, safe mode start up, and even with Seagate Tools and Western Digital Lifeguard tools with similar results.

One thing worth mentioning is that my computer will continue to function past the 40~min mark when on safemode or in a bootable application, but will without fail freeze then bluescreen moments later while on normal start up, even with a clean boot. There are no signs of slow down, excessive waiting on start up, or any bizarre harddrive noise other than normal during use. Every program will suddenly become unresponsive and eventually result in a bluescreen.

There is only one way that I have been able to fully scan the Western Digital drive without it crashing on me. That is to go the route of accessing Computer> Right Clicking on Local Disk (E:) > Properties > Tools > Error Checking > Check Now > Uncheck both boxes (Automatically Fix File System Errors, Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors) which results in the message of: "Your device or disk was sucssefully sc...

Hello! I have a recurring BSOD with my computer. Its been happening for several months.
Whenever I turn on my computer after its been turned off for a while, 10 minutes or so after startup it starts to slow down, and eventually crashes with a STOP screen.

Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2.zip
(a zip with both PERFMON results and the jcgriff thing inside)

After the stop screen, I reboot, and then usually the computer will run fine all day. Then the next day, same story: it runs for 10 minutes, slows down and crashes. Rinse, repeat. That cant be good for my machine in the long run, eh?

I dont need to log in to the computer for the crash to happen. It can happen at the start screen if I leave it on for too long without logging in.

The stop error code I get is 0x000000F4(0x0000000000000003,... and then three more parameters which change every time (one set of those three was 0xFFFFFA800C9AA060,0xFFFFFA800C9AA340,0xFFFFF800035D48B0) I am adding this here because I am not sure you will get the info in the attached file. I dont think my BSOD crashes generated crash dumps: I tried the program "whocrashed" before and the more recent crashes never seemed to show up on it. I have followed the directions in the sticky thread to fix this problem though, so hopefully next time I crash I will have a proper crash dump to show. Its odd though, the final lines of the blue screen text just says:
"Collecting data for crash dump...
Initializing disk for crash dump..."

Yesterday i got like 30 BSOD's all day all from error above or 'a system thread was forcefully exited and the system was shutdown' to prevent damage or something like that.

Some reboots the disk wasn't detected at BIOS level, some reboots there was the post bios message "a disk read error occurred, press Ctrl Alt Del to reboot", and when it gets to loading, it takes forever always, that is if it doesn't reboot after the loading window.

I'm almost 100% sure it's the disk, but today the computer seems to be running extremely better than normal, although i did get a BSOD early today from the 'system thread exited forecefully' message i said above.

There's no dump files saved from any BSOD because it stucks on "initializing disk for data dump" on the BSOD screen and just gets my fan really loud doing basically nothing.

I just want a confirmation if it's really the disk, it's been getting slower over time...
I attached the posting requirements zip.

I've been getting these about twice a week. I suspect my SSD, but don't know how to confirm it. Any help would be appreciated.

? OS - Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
? What was original installed OS on system? Yes, though I used easeus to transfer the contents of the original OEM install to a Vertex 3 SSD I installed, then I used microsoft's upgrader to upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to Ultimate
? Is the OS an OEM version (came pre-installed on system) or full retail version (YOU purchased it from retailer)? (see previous question)
? Age of system (hardware) - 2 Months
? Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS? 2 Months (see above)
? CPU - Core i7-2620M? Video Card - Radeon HD 6630M 1GB? MotherBoard - Sony Proprietary (laptop)
? Power Supply - brand & wattage - Sony OEM power adapter (laptop)

? System Manufacturer - Sony
? Exact model number - VPCSA2CFX/SI

Hi there,

I suspect you're right with the SSD. The OCZ Vertex 3s are causing plenty of BSODs. See if a firmware update solves the problem: OCZ Technology


Code:
FirmwareRevision 2.06

I have an Asus A73SV running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. It was working fine for at least a year. About 2 weeks ago, I started getting Disc I/O errors (0xc00000e) after using my laptop for a while. Starting last week, I was getting BSOD after about five minutes of use. Now, by the time startup programs are loaded, windows crashes. It gives STOP error 0X000000F4 and fails a memory dump with error 0XC0000010. When I load into safe mode or any other OS, I do not get this error. If any other information is needed, I will provide it.

All thanks,

I get the stop code 0x000000f4. before it crashes i get a box come up saying "the instruction at 0x0000000075912c69 referenced memory at 0x0000000075912c69. the required data was not placed into memory because of an i/o error status of 0xc000000e".

I have run hard drive tester (chkdsk and sea tools) these come back okay. i have run memory tests and they are also okay.

Your copy of windows is not genuine, Supports end here.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analyzing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimize the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them.

Starting yesterday I started getting BSOD. Actually the first one I saw was a 0x0000007a stop error and since then three BSODs all 0x000000F4 errors. I captured details on two-

0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003,0xFFFFFA800E1C39D0,0xFFFFFA800E1C3CB0,0xFFFFF80003598501)

0x000000F4 (0x0000000000000003,0xFFFFFA800E1BCB30,0xFFFFFA800E1BCE10,0xFFFFF80003596510)

I suspect bad RAM but was looking for a bit more experienced advice. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Glad I posted before adding Sys Specs - I just had the same BSOD

I built the System in February and its been great. Windows 7 Pro in a 2003 Server Doamin environment:

Intel DH67CL MB
Core i5-2400 - 3.1GHz
16Gb RAM (4 4GB DIMMs)
c:\ Crucial 128GB Solid State Drive
Data:\ Maxtor 1TB STM31000340AS HDD
External 1.5TB Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex USB
ATI Radeon HD 4600 Video Card
Using embedded Audio and Plantronics Audio 648 USB Headset

I think that covers it. Did I miss anything??
