Hello Experts,

I am a system admin with an issue that is been going on for about a week now. We began to receive BSOD on or window system. When I check the .dmp it points to hardware, but there was no change across several data center in different states. I tried re setting cables, adjusting HAVAC temp, and rolled back updates. Everything points to hardware, but I check two system personally, and it is still odd that it is happening across data centers.

attached is a screenshot from one of our kvm's

thanks

Hello,

I did some quick searching and came across a couple things.  Does the server have any SSD drives?  If so, there might be a firmware update.  In the server, the CMOS battery might be bad, or might need to be reseated.

The pages below may also be of help:

a stop F4 is CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION
did you identify the process in the dump file?
when this happens again, did you look at each dump file and see if it's the same process each time?
