BSOD While playing Garry's Mod on steam

Windows 7 Enterprise
-32bit
-age of system: 1 month old(still new)
-age of OS: 1 month old

I was just playing Garry's Mod online, then the computer just had a BSOD. The game has a problem sometimes where the whole game would freeze or just a part of the game would stop working. Any ideas on what might have caused this?

Your .dmp file shows a stop error of 0x124 which 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.

If it's an Enterprise version, it should be turned in to the IT department.

It is 32bit 7601 and enterprise and ultimate are almost identical except networking which usually can be dealt with the same.

My computer is slightly overclocked. The ram settings/timmings were set manually according to the ram info. The GPU comes in factory overclocked but only by about 80MHz. Lastly the cpu bus speed is 50MHz higher(250MHz) and multiplier lowered so it keeps the same speed. Also I am pretty sure that I have all the latest updates for drivers, windows, etc.

Just as a note: I can play BFBC2 and GTA IV at max setting for a very long time without any problems. But why would a game like Garry's Mod do something like this?

Perhaps, perhaps not. an assumption I would say. As a matter of fact I own a legal copy of Enterprise.

Since this is Steam game you're having issues with give this a try - Verifying Game Cache Files (GCF)
