Your computer has recovered from a serious error with BCCode4

I'm working on a PC thats freezing intermittently. It can sometimes go for hours without any issues, then all of a sudden just lockup and requires a restarting. Upon loading windows again I get a serious error recovery message with the following; It is rerally getting annoying as each morning I come to work I have to boot up  and sometimes go to safe mode and scan disk to get the pc to boot

error= CCode : f4     BCP1 : 00000003     BCP2 : 892D3428     BCP3 : 892D359C    
BCP4 : 805D11F8     OSVer : 5_1_2600     SP : 2_0     Product : 256_1

I have zipped up the mini dump files if anybopdy knows how to read these :)

IN admin tools> System>event viewer I see system erro r= error code 000000f4, parameter1 00000003, parameter2 892d3428, parameter3 892d359c, parameter4 805d11f8.

There are NO yellow check marks in Device Manager.

Any help would be seriously appreciated as this is the primary PC at work

Check for faulty ram - as with the majority of blue screens.
http://www.memtest.org/
Create a bootable CD - then run at least 2-3 full passes - anything shown up in red is bad memory blocks.
You can verify the result with the oca memory diagnostic:

Just login - and upload the mindumps in zip files in conjunction with this question - and someone can take a look for you.

For general tests - look at:
ubcd - http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
ubcd4win - http://www.ubcd4win.com/downloads.htm

You can download, burn and boot from these iso's - and do a range of motherboard, hard drive and memory tests.
