124 One of the most difficult to solve. Read and try these suggestions.

In addition, give us your mini dmp file

It is probably hardware.

I cheked quite a few of your reports, they all show code 124. Read up on code 124 and then start with the memory test.

Run each stick separately, for 6 passes. Then take a good stick and check all the slots.

I have already done those thing above, i have run memtest86+ for each stick for as long as 12 hours with no errors.
And i have run prime95 for as long as 18 hours no errors,so my system is stable.

That code 124 is a tough one to solve. That is why we use the canned answer to help those with the problem. I will inquire as to other solutions, and others with ideas will stop by also.


I have posted for help.

Hey yo,
I'm sorry to ask you for this, I agree that stop code 124 is hard to deal with but if I were you, I would try everything just to make my computer work first. If I were you, I would go to BIOS and reset everything to optimal default setting to see how it goes.

Overclocking can make your system, CPU in particular, can run very unstable, have you tried this CPU stress test yet:
Try this free stress test: http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/
Quote:
Prime95 Setup:
- extract the contents of the zip file to a location of your choice
- double click on the executable file
- select "Just stress testing"
- select the "Blend" test. If you've already run MemTest overnight you may want to run the "Small FFTs" test instead.
- "Number of torture test threads to run" should equal the number of CPU's times 2 (if you're using hyperthreading).
The easiest way to figure this out is to go to Task Manager...Performance tab - and see the number of boxes under CPU Usage History
Then run the test for 6 to 24 hours - or until you get errors (whichever comes first).
The Test selection box and the stress.txt file describes what components that the program stresses.
Check your system temperature by using SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer

I'm not good at diagnostic this either, but I feel kidda sad when you don't want to try to stop overclocking, it is the main cause of so many stop code 124 that I've seen

Regard,

Tuan
