I am having blue screen error (BLue Screen error code: 0x000000F4(0x00000003, 0x8AA97720, 0x8AA97894, 0x805D2984)
while sometimes my PC just restarts.
Can you please help me with this error? I do not have much disposable income so I hope this can be resolved easily.
My motherboard is Asrock PCI Express raid, FSB1gh,DDR 11800.I was thinking of updating my bios however am afraid of making the problem worse.
I have Win XP sp3 Black.

Please help.

PS. As I was waiting for a reply, I had another blue scree. 0x000000F4(0x00000003,8AA1B740,0x8AA1B8B4,0x805D2984)

Here's a link to the Microsoft Knowledge Base article(My link) that makes me suspect your hard drive may be jumpered incorrectly, connected incorrectly, or the hard drive data cable may be faulty.
Microsoft KB Article 330100: Connecting a hard disk drive in slave only mode leads to system halt during resume from standby


A computer that is running Microsoft Windows XP or a later operating system stops responding during resume from standby, and you receive the following KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR stop error message:

0x0000007a (e163a3e4,c000000e,bf8e9313,0697f860)
0x000000F4 (0x00000003, Parameter2, Parameter3, Parameter4)

Note Parameter2, Parameter3, and Parameter4 in the stop error may vary.

This problem occurs on a computer in which Windows XP or a later operating system is installed on a hard disk that is configured as a subordinate and no other device is connected to the same IDE controller channel (primary or secondary).


To resolve this behavior, use one of the following methods:
For Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment (PATA) hard disks, configure your disk drive as master only. For Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) hard disks, connect the hard disk cable to a master channel SATA connector on the motherboard.
Connect another device as a master, such as another disk drive or a CD drive or DVD drive.
Change your PATA and SATA IDE cable even if the cable does not appear worn.
Install Windows on a new hard disk because it is possible that your hard disk or your Windows installation may be corrupted.
