Windows 7: 0x124 BSOD


15 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
 
 
0x124 BSOD

I'm currently having problems with the infamous 0x124 BSOD.
I started receiving this BSOD randomly about 6 days ago and the last few days its getting worse(to the point Windows won't boot without bringing up the BSOD).

I tried booting into safe mode, but the BSOD still came up.

To solve this issue I tried the following things, but with no luck:
-Removing all PCI card
-Replacing the graphic card
-Disconnecting all non-OS HDD's and Optical Drives
-Updating BIOS from factory version(1003) to 1704

I attached a zip file containing the minidumps generated by the BSOD's that happened today.

What piece of hardware/driver could be causing this issue?

System specs:

Intel Core i7 2600k @3.40ghz (Stock)
Asus P8P67 Evo Mainboard (non-Rev 3.0)
Corsair DDR3-1600 RAM 8192mb
Asus ENGTX560 Ti
Corsair 120GB SSD (Windows installation drive)
Western Digital 500gb HDD
Linksys WMP600N PCI-card
LG BD-Rewiter Drive
Age of hardware: First assembled and run on February 24, 2011

I have had only 1 hardware change since the initial build of this system which was the addition of the WMP600N card on April 29th, 2011

Windows installation:

Windows 7 Professional x64
Installed on: February 24, 2011
Type: Full
First installation on this system

Added the full dump and report. Some dumps from this week that were in the Windows/Minidump folder are missing because the diskclean tool removed them apparantly

gameleon, welcome to the Seven Forums.

While waiting for one of our crash experts, if you haven't seen it yet might want to give this a read,

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

My motherboard also suffers from the same 0x124, but only if I leave all voltage adjustments (all but the vcore and vdimm that is) in the bios at their defaults. In my case there is 4 or 5 voltage adjustments in addition to the vcore and vdimm (both of which can be left at default), and it takes bumping all of them up a notch or two from default to stop the BSOD. Sad part is it doesn't matter whether I overclock or leave the speeds at stock, without those adjustments it can pull the 0x124 out of the blue.

Just something to try as well while waiting.

Thanks, I've read the guide and followed most steps , but with no luck to solving the BSOD. The only thing I haven't done yet is a full reinstall, which I want to use as a last resort only. The only parts I haven't tried replacing yet are the mainboard, CPU and RAM memory(since I have no replacement parts for those).

The strange thing is that the BSOD's began to appear about 1,5 week ago, while my last hardware change was in april, and my last driver update cycle was done on June 2th.

I tried your suggestion of changing the voltage settings, but with no luck either. The BSOD's still appeared

I just found out whenever I start a prime95 CPU stress test, the BSOD comes up in less then a second, leaving me to believe that the CPU is the culprit of this issue. Still, I want to rule out the mainboard as the cause of this issue first.

I attached a zip file containing the prime95-crash minidumps.

Just ran a memory test from a Memtest86 V4.0 boot disk, and while running the tests, the PC just randomly reboots with no error message or anything. The memory returns no errors up until that point.

EDIT: The memtest86 v3.5b doesnt reboot, but only uses 1 CPU core

Finally replaced the mainboard and the issue still remains :S. This leaves only the CPU as the perpetrator I guess.
