Windows 7: BSOD in COD MW3

BSOD in COD MW3

Hey guys, I've been getting random system freezes when playing COD MW3 and after I restart my PC I get a report for BSOD 124.
What I've checked until now:

1.Non of my components is overheating or actually heating at all, since I have excellent custom cooling.
2. Checked my memory with a 10 hours memtest for windows 4 instances, each 1500MB.
3. Checked my PSU with a multimeter for 1 hour during load/idle. It's within specs.
4. Not overclocking.

My specs are.

ASUS P5QC
Intel C2Q Q9550
2x4GB Kingston HyperX BLU DDR3 1600MHz CL9 @ 1333 MHz
Sapphire 4890 1gb
WD Caviar Black 1TB
CM Silent Pro 850W

I think these random freezes/lockups are related to some software conflict.
I had a similar problem with some games running PB, and it appeared that PB has conflict with MSI Afterburner, so after I uninstalled afterburner I stopped getting it.
The problem is that now my system freezes when I play Single PLayer/Spec Ops on MW3, which has nothing to do with PB.
Can you please analyze my dumps and see what is causing this? I'm almost sure it's a software/driver conflict.

Thanks!

The problem appears to be the flux capacitor it's not getting the required 1.21 gigawatts ...we're gonna need more plutonium.


...seriously though I'm not seeing anything outstanding outside of the fact that you appear to have daemon tools/Alcohol 120% installed, and it has been known to give issues. (could be conflicting with mw3 drm too)
Start off by removing Dameon Tools/Alcohol 120%. Its driver, SPTD, is known to cause BSODs. Once the program is removed run the SPTD removal tool. DuplexSecure - Downloads


I suggest the magic iso virtual drive if you just absolutely have to have one. They charge for their burning software but the virtual drive stuff is free.

I don't have DaemonTools/Alchohol, but I do have PowerISO which is basically the same. It's a virtual drive.
I will remove it right away and see what will happen. After I removed PowerISO, I ram the SPTD and it didn't detect anything on my system.

that was the only thing I caught. I'll drop another debugger a line to have a look for you.
I'm short on time.

I will most certainly do that when I get home tonight and also give you some logs from the System as I spotted some suspicious logs after every crash.
If I don't go home tonight, I will post these logs tomorrow.
Thank you very much for the quick and effective respond.

It appeared to be the PSU. Replaced it with a Corsair HX750 and no problems occur so far.
If there are any I will post.
Thank you for your support.
