Solved: BSOD -- STOP error 0x0F4
Hi,

I'm running Windows XP Home on a Dell Inspiron 6000, and for the last week or so I've been getting blue screens about once every couple hours. I can't figure out anything specific which is causing them, though they seem to be related to the hard drive... I'm not the most tech-savvy guy in the world, so help me out?

The line I'm getting at the bottom of the blue screen reads:

STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x8293CDA0, 0x8293CF14, 0x805C773E)

...Anyone able to explain to me what that means?

All The Dumps Crashed at "BugCheck F4" -> Most Of The Time It Is Related To "Bad|Corrupted Paging Space"

Done-- and I haven't had another bluescreen yet, but I probably won't know if the problem's totally fixed for a full day or so of use. Thanks a bunch!
