    Alright facepunch I need your help. Recently the computer I built has been bluescreening with the error 0x000000F4 (Theres a few more error codes after this in parenthesis I haven't written them down because they're very long but i'll write them down the next time I see them and update the post). I really need your guy's help in resolving this.

    Details:

    Appears to only bluescreen when I am away from the computer for an hour or so.

    Error code 0x000000F4

    Event Viewer Log

    Speccy - Details of a certain piece available upon request

    Power Supply

    Bluescreen Picture

    Solutions tried:

    I've tried resetting the CMOS, then booting with no harddrives and video cards connected, then rebooting with everything in and am still currently running with the default BIOS settings.

    If you guys need more details just ask I really would like to get this fixed soon.

    Did the bluescreen not reference a file or type of error like IRQ_LESS_THAN

    I didn't notice I'll update the post with more information the next time I bluescreen.

    Also i've been using my computer for 6 hours straight without a bluescreen, this definitely has something to do with me leaving the computer for an extended amount of time.

    update SSD firmware,

    I have the same exact problem as you, and I have an OCZ SSD aswell.

    this probably happens, if you have installed your OS on the SSD.

    Maybe it has something to do with the PC wanting to go standby.

    Damn I was afraid of that am I going to lose everything on it when I update the firmware?

    Also just incase I updated the OP with a picture of the bluescreen hopefully theres another solution to this.

    Flashing firmware on a HDD doesnt do annything on the data on it, so my first guess is that you wont lose your data. They will probably tell you whats what on the formware download site.

    You have a 1TB hdd though, just back it up?

    All of my important files are backed up in dropbox, i'm more worried about having to reinstall everything than just a simple loss of data but i'm making a bootable usb stick to try and install the firmware update. Thanks for the help everyone hopefully this resolves the issue.

    A bluescreen.

    You know that could be caused by a million different problems right?

    Usually hardware or driver problems.
    In most cases i've seen it's either corrupted RAM or fiddling with the IDE/AHCI bios setting.

    Just letting everyone in this thread know that I updated the firmware on my SSD and the computer hasn't bluescreened for a while so I believe the problem is solved.
