Hi,
I have a sony vaio laptop PCG-VX88. I started suddenly receiving the blue screen when I start the system.
I get the following error:

Begining physical memory dump
0x000000F4

Need to disable Bios memory

I have not installed any new software or hardware. The problem occurs usually when I start the sustem and the laptop keeps restarting. Sometimes I can get to the desktop but after few minutes I get the same error message.

The laptop allows only one memory slot and I have just replaced the 256 memory stick with a brand new one bought from Sony. Still same issue.

I tried to take off all start uo programs, start it in safe mode but no luck

Thanks in advance for your help

Are you running a Firewall? An Antivirus?

Before doing anything to your system, I suggest sanning your system for MAl WARE (Viruses). Go to your profile folder and delete all TMP internet files, most recent files, cookies.

How soon into the startup is it? Is it right soon after you turn it on, or when the XP loading screen comes up, or when it's nearly to the point that you can log on.

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

btw, go into the BIOS and see if there's an option for BIOS memory cacheable, or something like that. Make sure it's turned off.

From Sony Knowledge base:

The error 0x000000F4 CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION may occur if the hard drive with the operating system is installed is set as the slave or secondary drive.

If you havent changed the hard drives, you may want to do some diagnostics on it. Also this from MS Bug Check codes page:

Bug Check 0xF4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
The CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION bug check has a value of 0x000000F4. This indicates that a process or thread Crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.

Cause
Several processes and threads are necessary for the operation of the system. When they are terminated for any reason, the system can no longer function.

It sounds from this that you have some corrupted system files. If you can get to the desktop do a search for drwtsn32. open it up and look at the Application Exception entries. You just need to look at the first part. The most recent will be towards the bottom. See what program is causing it, or if there are different ones. Actually before doing that if you get to the desktop try to run the system file checker. Go to start/run and type in sfc /scannow and let it run. It will repair or replace any corrupted system files.

Example of what to look for in drwtsn32:

Application exception occurred:
App: C:\Program Files\Deepnet Explorer\Deepnet.exe (pid=5472)
When: 8/31/2005 @ 14:03:59.937
Exception number: c0000005 (access violation)

Hi everyone, Thanks for the precisous help.
Well, 1/10 I asm able to get up to the desktop, do normal operations and then after minutes it gives me the same blue screen.
The rest of the time I get the Blue screen right after the windows logo screen and before you get to the screen where you type your user account & password. It keeps restarting like that for ever.

I looked into the BIOS there is not the CACHEABLE option. IMPORTANT to mention that one time windows started the Sysytem File check program by its own and it did find & repair 4 errors.

Thanks again. I will keep you posting.

HI everyone,
I have the same problem whit XP and replace the operating system for Win 2000 and the result was the same, then replace the hard drive whit W 2K but no changes, itīs important to mention that im not installing nothing else and the blue screen still appear.
After, replaced the video card, because the driver was not original and no changes, then whit all the coments all of you do, i thing the problem could be the RAM or the mother boarth (i donīt hope so).
Also i realize when the system start is slow, i thing the problem is the same.
Best regards

I would check all my bios settings, restoring to default if needed.
Then clean everything on the inside.
Then try replacing parts internally.
If this does not work, reformat, and make sure to take each step very closely, and carefully.

O I forgot, pressing Esc will bring you to the bios screen. Problem is, pressing F8 brings you to the boot menu normally. So try Esc, and if that dont work, try F4, F5, F8, and all others.
