Windows 7: BCcode:124 only happen in older games

12 Aug 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

jefs, troubleshooting 124 errors, or most BSOD's for that matter, is a process of elimination. You have to eliminate everything that is known to cause a conflict or a crash. Overclocking definitely causes crashes on some systems. I am not saying it caused the crash on your system; but we will never know unless you try your system returned to stock. If returning to stock does not stop the crashes, we look for something else. But overclocking is an obvious one.

It is obviously your choice. You posted asking for help and we are giving you the best advice we can based on our knowledge and experience. Do we have all the answers? Not hardly; but we do have experience with a lot of BSOD's and a lot of varied systems. 124's are hard to solve. You just keep trying until you find the key - but you must try each key.

And i didnt mention that my system is overclocked but i can proof that overclocked is not the cause.Any idea?

We have seen tons of occasions where Overclocking used to cause BSOD. It won't hurt to reset everything to default and see if the System is stable. Do you remember how many passes have you ran for MemTest86+. We would recommend atleast 6 passes.

Run a Hardware Diagnostic (Memory and Hard Drive) follow this link for instructions Hardware Diagnostic !! « Captain Debugger

Uninstall DAEMON Tools Lite it's a well known cause for BSOD. See if the System is stable. Also uninstall all the Asus related Utilities (Not drivers) Remove AVG and use the Removal Tool and clean the left over files AVG - Tools download and install Microsoft Security Essentials
Device is disabled.Cause:A device is disabled preventing it from working properly.Details:The  device, #UNKNOWN#, is disabled. If this device is no longer used it may  be intentionally disabled. The Plug and Play ID for this device is  ACPI\ATK0110\1010110.Resolution:1. Determine if you need the device.
2. If you need the device, enable it in Device Manager.
3. If you do not use the device it can be left disabled.Related:Explanation of Error Codes Generated by Device Manager

Download Speedfan and check the Temperature make sure it's not very hot. So we can rule out heating issues.

Hope this helps,

And for tuan look at my previous post,i already stress my cpu so many time approx like 18 hours no errors(Large FFT).Based onHOWTO: Overclock C2Q (Quads) and C2D (Duals) - A Guide v1.6.1
My cpu is Q8300 at 3,0ghz idle at 35-38 C and full load at 55-57C and its far from overheating.Look at my specs.
