Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit BSOD at random

Ive been having an issue with BSOD for about a month or two now. Everything was working fine before then. The only thing new installed and/or replaced was about 6 months ago i had to replace my Power supply. Its 100% random some days i can jump on play for 2-3 hours no issue, and the next day jump on and BSOD every 15-20min. It will also be running fine for an hour or two, but ill step away and return to find my computer had restart . I will reload up and start to play something and boom crash in 15min reload again and run fine for hours and or over night (to see if it would crash) some times it had and others it had not. I play Guild wars 2 and minecraft only things i really do now, but it does get annoying after having to reboot my computer when it starts acting up. Thanks in advance

Hello xDrUnKeNx and welcome to Sevenforums.

* What's your temperatures just before a crash?
* Does it only happen while gaming for instance?
* Why did you suspect your PSU at that time?


Updating System Specs will give us a better sight of
how your system is put together. It's simply done.

WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124) Troubleshooting

Code:
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)
A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Usual causes: Hardware, Incompatibility, May be driver corruption

Code:
3: kd> !sysinfo cpuspeed
sysinfo: unknown error 80004005
3: kd> !sysinfo cpuinfo
[CPU Information]
~MHz = REG_DWORD 3515
Component Information = REG_BINARY 0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
Configuration Data = REG_FULL_RESOURCE_DESCRIPTOR ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,ff,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0
Identifier = REG_SZ AMD64 Family 16 Model 4 Stepping 3
ProcessorNameString = REG_SZ AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 970 Processor
VendorIdentifier = REG_SZ AuthenticAMD
1) For some reason I did not get the right symbols for your !sysinfo. It's only a few bits of voltages we're talking about, but make sure that your cables are tight, the BIOS settings are default and most important -- nothing is overclocked. Small bits of voltages of the difference is not too serious when dealing with the CPU; but it might be a causer.

2) Ensure that the case is cool inside, check your temperatures in BIOS or use Speccy for instance. Try to open your case ( Ensure warranty rules and regulations), and get a fan to blow directly into the hardware.

3) Update every driver that interacts with the hardware. (Raid, Controllers, Graphics Card driver)

4) Nevertheless it's important to keep Windows updated because 0x124 might not point to hardware.

5) Report if these bugchecks appears at times, they're the most common one within Hardware issues and overclocking.
0x77 – KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR
0x7A - KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR
0x101 - CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT


* Are you using the stock cooler?
Best Regards,
Frederik.

Re:

Temps idle for MB 37 Celsius, Graphics 40 and hard drive 32. It will crash at random sometimes while playing but ive left it on over night to see if it would crash without being under any load and it would. ive had this computer for about 3-4 years now and its just now starting to act up. The reason i replaced the PSU was because it would randomly shut power off to the PC till it finally wouldnt cut on so i bought a new PSU and its running now and ran fine for 5months + with no issues. Also ive updated the info the best i could anything else im not really sure the person that gave me this computer i no longer speak to. IF there is something else u need and u can explain to me how to get it i will. Thanks again!


*Edit* Also ive kept an eye on temps while i play and none of the temps really got above 55 Celsius

Right I see, thanks mate.

We can proceed to Memtest86+.

Combining your crash dumps and the general view of BSODs culprits, I'd suggest you to have a look at your memory, the sticks. Through decades people have been using the bootable tool called Memtest86+ and it's basically very unique in these manners.
Be sure to check your warranty rules and regulations before opening your case.
* Memtest86+ is USB-ready, and can be booted directly from it. Download the flashdrive wizard.
* To ensure that either your sticks OR your motherboard slots are broken, it's necessary to do the below procedure-
* Pull out all sticks except ONE, scan it.
* If no errors, pull the scanned stick into another slot.
* Proceed like this until you've scanned all sticks individually, and all the slots.
Best Regards,
Frederik.

You're welcome.

Sometimes the Windows one is a bit random. Memtest86+ is a bit more convenient in my opinion.

Just let it run the default settings. Leave it running it 6-7 passes.
