Random BSOD, error 0x00000124

BSOD while doing remote connect to two office computers, browsing internet and watching King Crimson video. I have done the same thing many times without a problem. It didn't seem like it was overheating - or working hard.
I am running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, which I reinstalled fresh a few months ago
I am running the 'Dummy OC' - nothing custom

A stop error of 0x124 is a general hardware error .
Quote:
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 do notice Symantec which is a frequent cause of BSOD's. I would remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST
