Do you think you could put the graphics card in the other computer and try to run BF3 there?

There has been a spate of BF3 BSOD's of late. May be something the developer changed. Check with them.

Yes, I've noticed them too. The problem is, there hasn't been any recent updates or patches. It might be worth emailing or calling EA too see if they have a fix.

Today I started Prime95 before I left for school and when I came back (about 6 hours) the PC wasn't crashed! Before test I deleted every single driver I had, and reinstalled every driver I could find to my PC. Also I cleaned my PC off the dust as specific as I could. Still the FPS in BF3 is horrible, why? Haven't played it for long period now to test if it crashes or not but atleast the Prime95 didn't crash this time.

PS. None of my other computers are that good that they could run BF3.

UPDATE: I contacted EA Customer Support live chat and told them about the situation. Then they gave me this link (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135) and told me to do that. I did it and now when I tested out BF3 the FPS were like it was supposed to be. Don't know about crashing but I think its fixed because Prime95 didn't crash this time. I'm going to test it out now. I'll let you know what happens.

UPDATE2: Still doesn't work. After about 15 minutes of playing the game crashed again. Same error as before. The link I gave earlier fixed FPS but didn't fix my BSOD. Maybe it's memory related or something because game is playable only when I turn down every program before playing. And by playable I mean that FPS is good.

UPDATE3: I just noticed that when I startup my PC it doesn't start at first when I press power button. It starts up and after 5sec it shuts down, before the bleep sound. This happens 2 times and then it starts up normally and gives the bleep. Just tought I should let you know.

UPDATE4: I just reinstalled Windows 7 and BF3 works like it used to. After couple of hours no crashes, no FPS lag. Hopefully my PC stays this way. Thank you for your efforts, I appreciate it!

RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Hardware - Stress Test With Prime95


Also have a look at the below post that explains the 0x124 error and some tips on how to fix it.
Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

If you have Gigabyte EasyTune 6, uninstall this. It has a history of known problems with Windows 7 as it is only compatible with XP and Vista. Uninstalling has also fixed BSOD's while playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

These BSOD's could also be cause by any overclocks you are running. Putting everything down to stock should help. If it doesn't, you might need to up your VCORE as your CPU may need more to keep it stable.
Just wanted to say thank you, uninstalling EasyTune 6 has fixed my blue screen issues! Thought I was going to have to send my RAM back after reading other forum posts, this is a relief.
