W7 New Build Crash...semi NOOB

OK...so I have been building XP boxes for ever and now I just finished my first Windows 7 X64 build. I am getting the BSOD randomly and my gut is thinking it is the video card...don't have a real reason to suspect it...just my gut.

Any hoo here is my system.

Forgot to mention. This is a brand new install and build of a Windows 7 X64 Enterprise edition. Seems I am getting the BSOD when I do some directX viewing, and I got a random IE8 lockup..but it corrected on it's own after about 20 seconds.

Thanks again guys...looking forward to seeing what the log files have to say.

Best

Steve

Forgot to add that I got the BSOD on 2 occasions with a fresh boot and playing with the screen saver settings...thus my video card concerns. It's 11PM here and I am going home for the night...hope to get some good replys in the morning

I would instantly suggest to try this procedure to eliminate already the possibility of a ram related problem.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

If not done already, I also suggest to update your nvidia drivers to the 260.99.

For more advices, I would wait for more experienced users assistances. Also, make sure all your drivers of all your devices are up to date.

These were caused by hardware. read the whys and what to try here. 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. You can read more on this error and what to try here... Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Thanks

Thanks guys!

OK...so I did some testing and talking to a coworker with way more knowledge than me. Seems the Gigabyte MB comes out of the box with the BIOS setting for overclocking the memory. I have adjusted everything back to normal or fail-safe mode and the machine has been running great.

I also ran SiSoftware Sandra benchmarking...not for the data but for the stress test it gives the box...and so far no BSOD!

I really hope it was just a DIM voltage or frequency issue with the BIOS settings. I will keep this thread up to date as I find out more.

Cheers'

OK... so I thought I would post this if even only for my records. The system is now running flawlessly as I found the BIOS to be set to extreme overclocking mode. Seems that GIGABYTE ships this mother board ( GIGABYTE GA-P55A ) with the BIOS setting defaulted to the extreme setting.

It is odd to me that they would do this but anyways after setting all the setting to a more conservative setup I have a super running machine. Thank you guys so much for the information!

All the best
