Windows 7: Nirsoft BlueScreenView doesn't identify cause of BSOD's

Nirsoft BlueScreenView doesn't identify cause of BSOD's

Seems I get a BSOD situation every year or so. I do try alot of different software. But it's supposed to be safe. One piece of software I use is Nirsoft BlueScreenView. This software is supposed to invoke itself whenever you get a BlueScreen and give you information about what caused it. In the past it worked very well. However, now it doesn't seem to work. Anyway I've started to get BSOD's, not on a regular basis, but regular enough that it's starting to bother me. And the BlueScreenView doesn't seem to catch the causes. Can someone look at my info and please tell me what the problem is? Any help is appreciated.

Hello there!

You Bugcheck is 0x124 mostly referring to hardware in this case it's pointing it CPU. I think it may be L2 cache error (GCACHEL2_ERR_ERR) try to reset the BIOS to factory defaults. You may have the Turbo function by Intel which tends to overclock RAM, GPU and CPU. If you're overclocking please stop and revert it back to stock settings.

Refer this article Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try
