Random BSOD W7(x64)

Hello, I am experiencing randoms and very annoying BSOD while working/playing on my computer and couldn't figure out how to fix this issue, I know alot of people have been having the same problem as I do but the numbers/letters, they are different from one to another.

So my bsod is showing : *** stop: 0X000000F4 (0x0000000000000003,0xFFFFFA80087F56D0,0xFFFFFA80087F59B0,0xFFFFF8000338C510)

And here is my desktop configuration if that can help you out :

- OS: Windows 7 Enterprise (x64)

  1. Your ram is wrong, it should be 1333 or 1066, you have it as 667mhz.
  2. ...Almost never see this one pop up:

    Bug Check 0x74: BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO

    This bug check indicates that there is an error in the registry.

    The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check occurs if the SYSTEM hive is corrupt. However, this corruption is unlikely, because the boot loader, known as NT Loader (NTLDR) in versions of Windows prior to Vista, checks a hive for corruption when it loads the hive.

    This bug check can also occur if some critical registry keys and values are missing. Thee keys and values might be missing if a user manually edited the registry.

    Try restarting the computer by selecting "last known good configuration" in the boot options.

    If the restart does not fix the problem, the registry damage is too extensive. You must reinstall the OS or use the Emergency Repair Disk (ERD) that you previously created by using the Windows Backup tool.


    Install anything recently? This BSOD really shouldn't be popping up unless the registry REALLY got messed up somehow...

    Could be RAM related, but this isn't one of the BSOD's I'd expect to see if RAM was corrupted. A memtest86 couldn't hurt though, just to be safe.

    You can give sfc /scannow a try, and see if windows can repair itself.

    Last step would be to try a registry cleaner. CCleaner works well enough...

    Failing that, assuming no other BSOD's occur that can be traced to another cause, then this is one of the few times where a reinstall of the OS may be required to fix the problem.
  3. stop: 0X000000F4 indicates possible hardware failure test ram with memtest86,scan your hard drive with hddscan.
    Also could be a rootkit in your drivers atapi.sys check this using tdsskiller from kaspersky.
  4. So basicly, If I just buy and install some new ram 1333 or 1066 Mhz I should be fine ? Because if so, I'm rushing to the store right now ! And I read about memtest86 and I tried to run it but it tells me :

    " The version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see wether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software's publisher ".
  5. You don't run memtest86 from within windows; you install it to a USB stick and boot off that.

    I don't think this is a RAM related problem. It could be, but I very much doubt it.
  6. So I just ran the test just like you asked me (ran it twice in a row actually), and yet, no errors were to be found.. so Like you said it isn't my memory that is the problem, do you have any other ideas what it might me ?
