For some odd reason I get this BSOD whenever I try to defrag a certain partition on my harddrive. This also occurs when I try to use CHKDSK on the partition. Also, whenever I try to burn a CD or DVD with any files on that partition (it's my media partition), I get a KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR BSOD. I don't know if the two are related or not.

As I said, defrag and chkdsk fail to work. Any help would be appreciated.

this can be a very difficult one to solve (the 0x000000F4 error)...the second may be related

start by deleting everything from your temp directories by downloading Crapcleaner

Never mind, I decided to take a little more drastic approach to solving this and did a format /u. It seems that did the trick, as I transferred some files to the partition and then defragged and used chkdsk on it again. This time I didn't get the BSOD. Thanks anyway.

Though if anyone thinks what I did isn't enough to fix this problem or anything, please tell me.

I don't think I understood that you had multiple partitions, but I think that would more than take care of your issue
