Windows 7: BSOD during very random occasions. Thought it was flash but not sure

BSOD during very random occasions. Thought it was flash but not sure

I've been trying to diagnose this problem myself for quite some time... Been reading crash dumps. It's always a Vista driver fault. What I find strange is that its caused very randomly by different processes. Sometimes by a game, my browser, or even explorer.exe. It's so random that I can't figure out how to truly reproduce the problem. I've jsut a about given up.

Im using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 OEM. It's a laptop i've had since the latter half of 09. I did a clean install of window's earlier this year. Been having these random BSOD for a little over a month now.

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.

Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP. return to the default settings at least for now.
If you are running a RAID update its driver.

I dunno. I've tried some things in that post. 1stly I'm not over clocking as this is a laptop. I've been doing some stress testing. Mem Diagnostics 5-8 passes, a chkdsk /r /f, other hd stress tests, as well as stress testing my video card using some benchmarking software. It doesn't BSOD during any of these tests. It just BSOD very randomly, I truly dont know what of my hardware is failing

could be heat, power, dust, cpu, mobo, etc. How old is it?

I've taken it apart and blew all the dust out. I've been monitoring the temperature, it stays around 45-50 degrees Celsius. It's about 3-4 yrs old.

Really dunno what else to try. Sometimes it can go for hours to a whole day without BSOD, other times it does so in quick succession.

I would download the update readiness tool and update to SP-1


Ensure you install the correct 64 or 32bit option for your system)

Download the System Update Readiness Tool (64bit)

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
