Windows 7: BSOD 0x00000124 uncorrectable hardware error

BSOD 0x00000124 uncorrectable hardware error

Hello,

I have a PC about a year old that unfortunately has had a series of problems. It's had a faulty power supply and recently a faulty hard drive.

Had both of these faulty hardwares replaced and then recently it began blue screening again whilst playing Dragon Age. This started occurring after installing mods so I uninstalled them assuming it was the cause, however a couple of days later the computer would not boot at all.

I reinstalled Windows and for a few days it has been fine but today it blue screened again whilst playing a game.

It was an "uncorrectable hardware error" with error code 0x0124, I managed to figure out the previous problems but I have no clue what is causing it this time.

Any help is much appreciated as University starts soon and I'm studying 3D Animation so really need this computer to be running perfectly..

Many thanks!
Kim

Please refrain from using CCleaner for the duration of your troubleshooting. It tends to delete the .dmp files we need for analysis during its cleanup procedure.


Make sure you get your Windows updates installed, as well. I see only two updates installed out of 100+ and have not yet gotten to Service Pack 1.


Your LAN drivers are also out of date. Realtek


You have a 0x124 hardware bugcheck. If the system is still under warranty, I would recommend sending it in to have diagnostic tests done and any bad hardware replaced.
warning   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!



For your hardware stop 0x124 crash, read through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try and use the following hardware checks to supplement 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).

    For Part 3: If You Have Errors: 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. If you do not have an anti-static workbench, desk, or pad, you can use your computer tower/case by finding a metal hold in it, such as a drive bay.
    Once these steps have been followed, it is safe to remove and replace components within your computer.

Remember to read closely through Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try for the crash.
You also have Daemon tools which is a known cause of BSODS & get an update for your BIOS version from the manufacturers website.

Take your time and let us know what you've done

Thanks for the quick reply,

just a quick update, I updated BIOS to the latest version and decided to run a game to see if it had helped. After a while it blue screened with
A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval.
code: 0x000000101

This happened twice now, so I will carry on with other methods suggested. Daemon tools was installed after the BSOD troubles, whilst attempting to setup memtest, but I will remove it anyway. Also temperatures are very good in the PC so I dont think anything is overheating.

The computer should still be under warranty, University starts in a couple of weeks so I need the computer working properly. Is it worth doing these tests to attempt fix the processor or am I better off just sending off for a new one so its all working before University starts?

Many thanks for your help!

Please upload the dump so that I can analyze better.

and FYI, the new error code STOP 0x00000101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT relates to the processor too.

STOP 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT troubleshtg

I think its better you get it replaced.

I've seen the dump its the same one, Stop 101 Clock watchdog timeout. Better send it for replacement before your university starts.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Thank you very much! You've been great help in finding the problem quickly!

Unfortunately found out that the processor has gone out of warranty

I decided to google around about my computers setup (I don't know much about computer hardware setups and compatibility, my boyfriend picked the build for this PC) and came across a thread about my motherboard and RAM, that it can overwork the processor, and wondering if this has happened?

Motherboard: P8P67-M PRO
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4G)
Processor: Intel Core i7-2600 3.40GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155

If so, since I have to buy a new one, do I need a more powerful processor?

Sorry if this question should be taken to a different thread

Hi Kim,

First to your question:

I don't think this is the case, because you said you had a series of problems since you got your computer a year back. This may have been one of the reasons behind all those problems as well.

Also:

It's not about powerful. Your current processor is powerful enough but is a defected/faulty one.

Nothing extra is required. If you need a replacement - get another Core i7. And if you want to upgrade look for a one that matches the socket pins..Most vendors know about those stuff. Just say that you want a replacement of i7, and tell them your motherboard's model.

Be sure that the replacement of the processor will not violate your OEM license. Contact your system admin in the university first. (Ignore this in case its not an oem license)

Thanks for the reply,

I ordered a new processor and unfortunately the problem is still the same, still blue screens 0x101. I'm not sure what next steps to take from here. I've run memtest which passed, and monitored temperatures and they are all fine too.

Did you update your BIOS?
