Windows 7: BSOD Cold Boot 0x000000124

Just start the test (which ever one) when the machine is 'cold', as quickly as you can, if it is due to the cold boot scenario then you should get errors right away.

It is due to the fact that the physical equipment is not 'warmed up' or the starting configuration settings are not enough to let the system run stable.
For example: idle voltage for CPU, integrated memory controller or other settings is not enough for the system to run stable, or the RAM may have borderline low voltage and can't function properly when it gets heavy use on startup.
Sometimes bumping the CPU, IMC or RAM voltage will solve this issue, but OEM computers don't allow you to change those settings. Usually the components will need to be replaced.

Hello,

I've installed Real Temp. Attached the temps, the max was with Diablo 2 and a movie running.

Ran memtest for each stick at cold boot. No errors for 7 passes.
Ran Intel's diagnostic tool at cold boot, no errors.

Sorry for the time taken taken, but it's kinda hard to test in cold boot state.

Should I clean the laptop ?

Thank you,
Alex

Yes, get a can of dry compressed air, from a computer shop, to blow out the laptop.

Those temps are not too bad for a laptop, my old Dell laptop runs prime95 torture test at 72/69C.

My brand new Sony runs at 78-80 C... i7s really were not meant to have laptop cooling.

Just wanted to give you an idea of what it can get up to and still be safe, though 80 C is probably pushing it a bit.
