Windows 7: Random BSOD/Freezing

Random BSOD/Freezing

Good evening! My PC is having some strange and random problems. Sometimes, it gets BSOD, sometimes it just freezes. Usually, i am just using the web or playing an emulator.

At first, i thought it was some issue with my VGA (Nvidia xfx GTS 250) so i just took it off but the problem persisted. I also formatted the PC but it didn't help too....

My specs:
- Windows 7 Professional x86
- the original installed OS on the system? - Yes
- an OEM or full retail version? - Full Retail
- What is the age of system (hardware)? - 2 years
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) - 1 month

Thanks!

For the above crash, see Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following to supplement the steps in that link.
  • If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

  • 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.


It also appears you have NVIDIA and ATI software installed for graphics. This could be causing conflicts.
Code:
nvoclock	99fa1000	99fa8400	Tue Sep 04 20:26:31 2007 (46de13d7)	00009e7e		nvoclock.sys
atikmdag	8e815000	8ec69000	Fri Apr 24 04:50:20 2009 (49f1996c)	00402d61		atikmdag.sys
It also does not help that the drivers are out of date. This may provide double chances of conflict.


Please remove any CD/DVD virtualization software, such as Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120%, as they use a driver called sptd.sys that is known to cause BSODs. Use add/remove programs to remove the software. After removing the software, use the sptd.sys uninstaller to remove sptd.sys from the system.

I prefer TotalMounter as my CD/DVD virtualization software as it allows me to burn images to a virtual CD/DVD if I just want an ISO file instead of a disc, and it is free.

Many use MagicISO - Convert BIN to ISO, Create, Edit, Burn, Extract ISO file, ISO/BIN converter/extractor/editor as well, which is also free.
