Start with Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following to supplement the steps in that link:
  • Monitor temperatures during the following tests.
    Use the following programs to monitor the temperatures.
  • Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).

    If you swap any memory components, follow these steps for ESD safety:
    1. Shut down and turn off your computer.
    2. Unplug all power supplies to the computer (AC Power then battery for laptops, AC power for desktops)
    3. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds to close the circuit and ensure all power drains from components.
    4. Make sure you are grounded by using proper grounding techniques, i.e. work on an anti-static workbench, anti-static desk, or an anti-static pad. Hold something metallic while touching it to the anti-static surface, or use an anti-static wristband to attach to the anti-static material while working.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

What temperatures did it reach before it blue screened, or did it blue screen too fast to tell?

If you were unable to see the temperatures, I suspect you have a RAM, CPU, Motherboard, or PSU problem. Have you had a chance to run Memtest86+?

Ok i think i got it going. Thanks for your help and sorry I didnt read all the instructions first. I updated all my drivers and my BIOS and everyting seems to be doing fine now. I never thought about doing that since I usually update what i can every month but i have been busy this last year

BSOD playing Steam Games
Steam keeps crashing my PC. I have a suspicion it has something to do with the way Steam is transmitting data in online games. I can play anything from DOTA2 to StarMade and encounter the same issue. Thanks in advance for any help!
