Whenever he tried switching his laptop, he was being prompted with a message stating if he wanted his laptop start normally or in the safe mode. On selecting either of the options the laptop was showed a blue screen with a error message “STOP: 0X000000F4 (0X00000003,0X84BA04D0,0X84BA061C,0X81290330)”.

  1. A great topic for technical stuff. Pretty much more on a hardware side rather than software. Though I have encountered blue screens from the past due to RAM(random access memory) problems but with the other issues, i cannot tell.
