Hi Henry,

Stop 0x000000f4 Blue Screen Error is a serious error that affects computer function. The error occurs when a process vital to computer function stops working. When important processes die, Windows will modify its function because it must adapt to a new state. When the adjustment happens, the computer will not function as it did. You will not even see the home screen of the laptop/desktop computer. Instead, you will get a Blue screen (as the name implies) telling you that something is wrong with the system. When this error occurs, you cannot use the computer normally. Even if you reboot the computer, it does not guarantee the error has been fixed.

Users are more likely to get the Blue Screen Error after they have installed new hardware on their computer. There are occasions when the process of installing new hardware can go wrong. Not every aspect of a hard drive or processor meshes smoothly with the rest of the hardware. When this happens it has an adverse effect on how the computer works. The adverse effects can shut down vital processes, which lead to Stop 0x000000f4 Blue Screen Error.

Another potential cause of Stop 0x000000f4 Blue Screen Error is hard disk (HD) configuration. A hard disk can be configured to run as a slave. If there are no other devices on the controller channel, it can lead to blue screen error. Ideally, an HD running on slave should be supported by other devices on the PATA, SATA or IDE controller channel. Slave HDs are configured so to bring them under the control of another periphery. If the slave drive is not connected/supported by another device, it leads to blue screen problems.

Fortunately, there are different methods to fix Stop 0x000000f4.
