Windows 7: BSOD Cold Boot 0x000000124

What happens if you cold boot with just the Samsung module in?

I am wondering if the Corsair RAM is bad or incompatible with your system. I had an issue like this with a laptop with Kingston RAM. The Kingston RAM wasn't bad, it was just not compatible with my computer.

Hello,

The Corsair Ram I've bougt for testing, I've had that problem earlier...

Is there a way to test the motherboard or processor at a cold boot?

Thank you,
Alex

If you have had the problem before, it is likely the motherboard or CPU. Hard to say which. With a laptop, I am pretty sure they would replace both if you had it repaired. I assume warranty is expired?

BSOD code 124 is usually a lack of IMC voltage (usually called vtt or something similar in the bios) or DRAM voltage too low.

Can you post pics of your bios screens?

Probably the advanced settings screen, showing voltages.

Hello,

Acer locks the BIOS unfortunately, I'm trying to find a unlocked BIOS.,
I hope it's the ram settings.

Thank you,

The F8 method is probably the best method. You could also change it so you have a timer for startup. See OPTION THREE part 2. of http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...list-boot.html (in your case, you are not deleting anything; just change the setting to not skip the boot menu and set the timer to however long you want).

Have you ran memtest86+ from the cold boot state?

Do this with the 2GB RAM card installed only and then again with only the 4GB card installed.
You can stop the test if you see any errors.

When you ran memtest86+ before was the laptop already warm?
Did you run a full 7 passes?

Your CPU core temps are high, What are you using to get the temps?
Use Real Temp.

You can test your CPU at the cold boot scenario with the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool

Hello,

I will try to run memtest with just 1 stick of ram.
Last time I ran 6h-7h of memtest with no errors.

I ran Intel's processor test, i've passed with 27 degrees below the maximum.
How can I test in cold boot ?

After many cold boots ... a 4 sec delay to boot spares me the 124.

I will post the cold boot memtest results.

Thank you,
Alex
