Please capture a complete dump because the mini dump strips the module name which caused this. When did this started happening? At what moment did it crash? Does it happen in Safe Mode too? – Tom Wijsman May 1 '12 at 12:05
Most common causes of f4 bsod, file system corruption, bad sector on hard drive, virus or malware. – Moab May 1 '12 at 15:09
@Moab checked system in viruses vith avast. Nothing found. – vacuum May 1 '12 at 15:52
@TomWijsman it started happening fewdays ago. The computer crashes when nobody is working with it. In nigth. Crashes repeated once in day or once in two days. Dunno about Safe Mode, need to check. – vacuum May 1 '12 at 15:55
Use NilSoft BlueScreenView, as it can read the dump files for you and provide you with the information you really need. – Oliver G May 2 '12 at 13:24
