Random BSODs - Help Required with dump Files

A couple of days ago my pc started giving me some random BSODs in no order. I dont know whats wrong as i haven't installed any new software recently and made no hardware changes.

I have attached the dump files of my previous 5 crashes, please can someone help me analyze these.


Thanks a lot

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which is a general hardware error .. A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

Thank you for the fast response, i really appreciate your help.

I did think that it has to be a hardware error because everytime the system crashes i see a hardware related message in the blue screen.

I checked that post and point 8 caught my eye

Quote:
8) Clean and carefully remove any dust from the inside of the machine. Reseat all connectors and memory modules. Use a can of compressed air to clean out the RAM DIMM sockets as much as possible.
I haven't really cleaned my pc in ages, and there is dust everywhere inside it. I'll do that right now and see if the pc crashes after that. Maybe the dust was causing the system to overheat?

Again, i'm really grateful for your quick response

It can be anything, but if it were my computer.
Clean insides first,
Then check memory.

You can post the files, but if it is hardware, the same 124 will show. You can post questions and I will try to help if I can.

I cleaned the pc, put the ram in different slots this time, and still the same crash.

I guess i'll try reinstalling windows, that might solve this.

ME BAD
Here is the memory test. Before you do something new, post and I will try to get information
Run for 8 passes. Then take a good ram stick and test each slot
Download memtest86 and test RAM

If its hardware reinstalling will not help. Hardware means the computer.

Yeah i know, but the guide you posted

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Lists a windows reinstall as a possible solution.

I'll reboot now and do the ram test, lets see what happens.

If its a RAM issue then i'll be more than happy, i dont want to replace my other components, they're expensive.


Thanks for the help mate, your are a life savor.
