Random BSODs, STOP 0x124
This is my first post on the forums Hope its all in order ...
So anyway ... my laptop has spent the last 2 months crashing with BSODs like crazy.
It started out from as little as once a week, but now its up to 6 times daily, and its gettin on my nerves.
I get a random BSOD, saying STOP*** 0x124, dumps memory, and then reboots my laptop (Sometimes it gives me a BSOD while on the Welcome Screen after it reboots).
I've tried basically everything, hoping it wouldn't be anything major. Tried formats, cleaning inside of laptop, memory testing and swapping card positions, and also paid €65 for a new HDD, cause my previous HDD failed its test. But unfortunately it wasnt the problem.
I'm led to believe its either a very nasty driver, or a motherboard fault - i hope not
The kernel dumps mention something about WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR and VISTA_DRIVER_FAULT.
Anyways, I've attached the dumps and reports, cause I'm still very green on interpreting them.
Thanks in advance for any help.

0x124 bugchecks usually indicate hardware problems (the CPU tells Windows your system had an uncorrectable error in hardware, and Windows bugchecks with a 0x124 and the parameters the CPU passed). In looking at the hardware error, it could be either RAM or CPU:

As much as I hate to be the bearer of bad news, ICACHEL1_SNOOP_ERR bugchecks tend to be bad CPUs or poor cooling (or the former caused by the latter), as this is indicating that the L1 cache on your CPU did not return data one of the CPU cores requested within a timeout period - almost always indicating a hardware problem, hence the CPU telling Windows to stop due to a hardware issue.
HPs are pretty prone to this, especially ones running AMD CPUs, unfortunately - I'd be contacting HP at this point for RMA / warranty repair.
