Windows 7: BSOD 8 times this month

BSOD 8 times this month

Hi all,

Attached, hopefully, is the full BSOD zip file with all the review needed goodies.

The debugger Bugcheck read of the last dmp file says that it is a WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124) - that's the debugger shouting, not me .

We rolled the computer ourselves & the systems specs are below with the My System Specs clickie.

Ran memory check (memtest86+ for 6 passes with zero errors) and that was okay.

BTW, we rolled a twin computer with the same computer hardware config, dual monitors (different monitors though) & pretty much the same main software & that unit is not falling victim to repeated BSOD episodes. So maybe missed some hardware driver upgrade or perhaps hardware itself?

The video card is running the latest driver & in fact knocked its performance down a bit to see if that was it, but without success.

Many thanks in advance for any assistance on this problem!

Thanks to the three folks who stopped by and peeked at the zip files to kick the tires.

With the 124 error, are we correct in assuming it is a hardware issue? If so, are we correct in assuming that 6 passes with memtest86+ with zero errors likely clears the memory as a problem?

Does anyone have any ideas on stress testing either the pair of video cards or the motherboard in a fashion similar to the utility we used on the memory?

The only idea we have left is to pull one video card and see if the BSOD goes away. Then replace the first one and pull the other for a similar run.

Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! Been a couple days since my last BSOD, but with just Firefox running went bluey this morn. A hot off the press zip file for that blessed event is attached.

Cheers you BSOD gurus.

Again, thanks in advance for any insight. Even if just to tear the computer apart piece-by-piece.

Had some more BSODs the past few days, but not going to bother posting, since the last have not been looked at. This morning I pulled the second video card & re-seated the primary. I'll run this for a few and see if the BSOD raises its ugly head. Usually been every one to four days.

One item of note was the second video card was not as warm to the touch as the primary. That said, the primary was warm to the touch, not hot.

Well pulling the #2 video card did not stop the BSOD. Had another one this morn. The earlier BSODs all had 0x..124 Bug Check Codes. Recently the BCCs included 0x0000000a (today's) and 0x00000101 (7/2) in addition to a 124 on 7/3.

I've pulled the #1 slot video card and swapped it with the secondary card that I had previously pulled (see above).

Since I've got some BSOD BCC other than 124, I've attached a zip file with the ...jcgriff2 folder and a post-crash perfmon.html.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank,

Hi all,

Pulling #1 video card and putting #2 in its place did not stop the BSOD. Likewise disabling hardware acceleration for Flash did not stop the BSOD.

What is next? Perhaps selecting components at random on the motherboard and pulling them out with a set of vice grips?

Does anyone ever answer these postings?

Thanks,

weejee

ps, the last crash zip file is attached, but not sure that matters since no one has looked at the last couple. Oh well, enough whinging.

Sorry and this might be a little late but normally the 124 error is due to an overclocking error. If you have adjusted your voltage settings in the bios that will cause the 124 error. If you have not adjusted them then some of your hardware is requiring extra power to operate at the current settings. I'm sorry if other people told you this already but I didn't see any other posts other than yours.
The 124 error means you will need to adjust the vtt/QPI voltage settings. Bad thing about this code is it doesn't say whether you have too much or too little. Try adjusting first down several times and then up several times. Hopefully one of those will be the right one.
The 101 code is for the vcore, (CPU), not getting enough voltage. Increase that slowly and MAKE SURE YOU KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR CPU TEMPS!
My advice would be to only put in the minimum of hardware and make sure the bios are at factory settings first. The other thing is maybe your psu is going bad? Fluctuating power across your board will give you similar results before frying something. You might try swapping it out with the one from the copy machine you have.
If your looking for testing software My favorite it OCCT that you can get here. It will test your cpu-all cores, GPU and PSU.
