Windows 7: 0x124 BSOD

0x124 BSOD

While attempting an installation of my mail client yesterday, the system crashed with the titled BSOD. I've included the analysis of the dump and a screenshot of the suspected drivers that it seemed to complain about below.

Since the driver that it pointed at is called a Vista driver, I imagine that it is talking about the Nvidia driver, because the download says that it is for Vista/Windows 7.

This sort of crashed has happened previously, but a bit differently. Before, it always pointed to nvlddmkm.sys, instead of to 0x124, and this time it wouldn't boot to desktop until after running chkdsk /r. It just hung at the login window, which particularly concerns me, because that indicates that it damaged something in the OS.

I've never found a solution for these types of crashes before, but I'm wondering if upgrading the video card would help, or if it is common with all Nvidia video cards?

It is probably a hardware issue

Your previous crashes with nvlddmkm.sys suggest bad/incorrectly RAM or a faulty GPU

Thanks, after looking over the possibilities, I have a hunch that the video card is the culprit. Along with the other symptoms, sometimes when running BIOS screens, or using Ctrl-Alt-Del to restart from some BIOS functions, it displays aberrant color patterns on the display. I have been considering upgrading the card anyway, so this just gives another reason to do so.

I ended up ordering a new video card:

EVGA 768-P3-1362-AR GeForce GTX 460 Superclocked Video Card - 768MB GDDR5, PCI-Express 2.0, Dual DVI, Mini HDMI, SLI, DirectX 11, Fermi, w/ FREE Starcraft II Trial Offer Download at TigerDirect.com

Hopefully, that will cure this BSOD problem. I was wavering, until I tried to boot into Kubuntu, and it lost the video signal before reaching desktop.

Did you test your RAM?

Yes, it appears good.

I got another 0x124 last night, so apparently the video card isn't the problem. Since the ram tested good also, what does that leave?

Could you run our BSOD sticky?

I have a suspicion, but I'd like to check out some event logs and other info before saying.

Will these do?

EDIT: I don't know that it is relevant, but the last two of these BSODs occurred during the installation of 2 different programs.

I was hoping to get the Windows_NT6_BSOD folder, actually. See here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html
