Ive updated all drivers, stress tested each piece of hardware for hours on end ( i.e memtest86, occt, prime95...etc) nothing ever errors or gets hot. Ive even reformatted and reinstalled the os after all testing passed.It will play games just fine for hours on end as well. The bsod is never consistent. Sometimes it will run for days. Sometimes it bsods a couple times in a hour. Its been going on for weeks. Im about at my wits end. It started about two months after the build randomly. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

*Edited for adding of the zip file.
Um several problem

First old drivers (from 2005 to present) If you have updated drivers your missed these


Code:
ASACPI.sys    3/27/2005 21:30:36    0x42476c4c    fffff880`042d1000    fffff880`042d9000        0x00008000                    
RTCore64.sys    5/25/2005 1:39:12    0x42941d90    fffff880`0850a000    fffff880`08510000        0x00006000                    
ctac32k.sys    7/2/2008 3:38:22    0x486b3e7e    fffff880`07232000    fffff880`072e0000        0x000ae000                    
AtiPcie.sys    5/5/2009 10:00:22    0x4a005486    fffff880`01951000    fffff880`01959000        0x00008000
How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

Second ASACPI.SYS (from 2005) A HUGE CAUSE OF BSODS


ASACPI.sys Sun Mar 27 22:30:36 2005
Quote:
The 2005 version of this driver is a known BSOD cause.
Please visit this link: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then scroll down to the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit " (it's about the 8th item down).
Download and install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).
Third avast. Remove and replace with Microsofrt security essentials

http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear5.exe

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Finally AFTER all the above your hardware issue may resolve itself but these crashes have all been caused by hardware read here to find out what that means and what to try

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

Thanks

Thats a very handy little program you have there for trouble shooting.

I am willing to bet it was the asacpi.sys that was causing the problems. I was aware of this. But i allowed windows update to install it and didnt check to make sure it was the most current. My mistake.

ctac32k.sys = creative. I had the latest drivers installed but just checked and noticed some beta drivers came out 4 days ago. Those are downloading now.

* Edit latest drivers are still from june 2010 for creative x-fi xtreme music. new drivers dont support windows 7.

rtcore65.sys = msi afterburner. Had the lastest i thought. But as of last week a new release. Downloaded and installed. ( i do oc gtx570 and use custom fan control so its necessary).

AtiPcie.sys =? i am unsure about. I have a gtx570 installed.The chipset is amd. But i have the most current chipset drivers.

I know i can delete it and then allow to auto reinstall. But could you adivise that there is indeed a newer dated driver? I did some searching and couldnt find an answer.

By the way thanks for the help. I really appreciate it.


* Edit also removed avast and installed security essentials.

Well my assumption was wrong. It bsod after 6 hours of usage. With the same 0x124

It seems to crash most on websites that are flash heavy. A couple websites in particular seem to induce the crash the most. Though not always,it could just be coincidence.

Ive probably read everything online about that error. Nothing very helpful. Seems almost everyone's culprit was something different. As ive said ive stress tested everything. It bsod's at stock settings or oc'd . Ive tried all sorts of frequency/voltage adjustments.

But the thing is, i let prime 95 run for about 4 hours the other night. With no errors at all. Also, memtest86 has been run for hours with the same results. Same with the gpu, ive stressted everything. I cant get errors. But the bsod's continue.

All parts are less then 3 mo old. So everything is covered under warranty still. I would just rather not risk getting a refurb of something if i dont have to.

Any other ideas?

Uninstall RivaTuner/EVGA Precision/MSI Afterburner - it is a known cause of BSOD with Windows 7. If you are overclocking anything - stop and return to default values.

See this STOP 0x124 article: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Thank you for trying to help. But you must not of read all of the posts.

Its will blue screen overclocked or not. With or without msi installed. It was running just fine for 2 months with all the above applications and settings . Then one evening it bsod and it has been happening since. Nothing new was installed or nothing was changed.

I found that 0x124 checklist that keeps getting linked weeks ago. I have done everything on there. Reformat included.

I was hoping someone here would know something new that i wasn't able to find. Not regurgitate the same thing over and over.

Its odd i cant get errors on stress tests. And the pc will idle or run a stress test for aslong as i let it sit. But surfing the net causes bsod. Its only crashed once while playing an online game ( bad company 2).

Ive removed the xfi and put a 4350 in place of the 570 in the previous install of 7 to trouble shoot. And it still bsod.



Should i just start rmaing parts? What would you start with if that was the case? Im thinking cpu then ram then mobo . In that order until i find the culprit.

What if they test it and it doesnt error tho? I cant get errors with any of it.

I just stopped it. I let memtest run for right at 7 hours and 8 passes. No errors. Ive let it run for 3 or 4 passes before. I was pretty sure it wasnt going to error.

So all hardware passes any stress test. Ive let prime95 run for hours no errors on that or anything else. Occt reports no errors on anything as well.

Any other ideas?

I really do appreciate the assistance.

Are you overclocking (CPU, GPU, RAM) anything? If so, please stop and return to default values.
