Blue screen crash from game

I have installed gta iv yesterday and keep getting blue screen on the start menu of the game or shortly after I start playing it. I have been playing 5 other games for a long time now flawlessly, not having any other problems.Blue screen is coming up saying stop: 0x00000124 (0x00000000,0x8648301c,0xb20c2000,0x00000175)

XFX Radeon HD 4870 1gb HD-487A-ZHFC

I will take a look. It appears to be a hardware problem.
Error code 124 is a special error code pointing to hardware. Your other dump is error code A and it blames hardware.

Please read this article on your bugcheck 124: [2-Int] Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

I suggest you start by testing your RAM
. Read the tutorial linked below and follow the instructions:

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Post back with your results.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a)
An attempt was made to access a pageable (or completely invalid) address at an
interrupt request level (IRQL) that is too high.  This is usually
caused by drivers using improper addresses.
If a kernel debugger is available get the stack backtrace.
Arguments:
Arg1: 00000003, memory referenced
Arg2: 00000002, IRQL
Arg3: 00000001, bitfield :
    bit 0 : value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation
    bit 3 : value 0 = not an execute operation, 1 = execute operation (only on chips which support this level of status)
Arg4: 830ca40e, address which referenced memory

I have all drivers and windows up to date, uninstalled and reinstalled the game, and put the vid card and cpu clock settings back to default and the game still crashes with nothing else running

Checked vid card clock settings again and found that I still had the clock settings set too high even though everything ran fine with reasonable temps gta for some reason didn't like it

default clocks - GPU:750
MEM:3600

was set at - GPU:807
MEM:4020

currently have it set to - GPU:765
MEM: 3660

with these settings gta is working perfectly fine now
