Windows 7: BSOD playing Team Fortress 2, 0x00000124

BSOD playing Team Fortress 2, 0x00000124

Hello,

My problem: Im getting BSOD's while I'm playing Team Fortress 2 (Fullscreen Window Mode). The mode is unimportant, since I tested Fullscreen only and the result is the same.

The BSOD usually appers after ~ 1hour. I have tested without TF2, and there's no BSOD, even after 2 hours. In this time, I'm browsing in Firefox, use applications like steam and Trillian, watching Flash-Videos on Youtube. But I don't play TF2 (Team Fortress 2).

My latest installed Hardware was a mouse (Steelseries, USB - Motherboard), and the Steelseries Engine as the driver. I already deactivated the driver in the auto start (with CCleaner). It doesent matter, if the driver is running in taskbar or not - If I'm playing TF2, after some time, I get the BSOD.

I don't know what to do now, since I had no problems before.

I also installed some Games like Half-Life and a Mouse Recorder Software. All works properly. But only TF2 causes the BSOD.

I also checked the integrity of the TF2 files - Successfully.
I hope that it's not a Hardware caused problem.

Thanks for any help!

New Update:

I NOW just had a BSOD, but the difference is: I was NOT playing TF2 while the BSOD appears. And TF2 was not opened, only Steam was.

I attached the new Zip file for you too.

Oh, and I should mention too, that I'm using the XMP Profile for my RAM (just look atz my System Specs for the RAM). I adjusted this in the BIOS and never had any problems.

I really need to fix this problem! I already checked the bug check codes and the memory dump with WinDbg but I'm still not sure, what caused the problem!

Please help me!
Thanks.

Ok, should I disable the XMP Profile too?

Hey,

I only want to write the intermediate result. Since I set the OC Profile to "Auto" (instead of "XMP") all works fine, no Bluescreens.

I think the problem was the little qpi/dram core voltage that was definied in the X.M.P Profile #1 (Intel) (2.0 V). Could be a little bit to low for a stable 1600 Mhz at CL9, hm?
Profile #2 (Manufacturer) offers 1,35 V that is too high imo.

Or can you suggest some good values to run the memory stable at 1600 Mhz?

Thanks in advance!

PS: All I had to do was checking the Common BSOD Error Code List for Overclocking - was really helpful: http://www.overclock.net/a/common-bs...r-overclocking

Hi and thanks for the update.
I don't have much knowledge on overclocking etc., so I'll call my friends so that they can help you
Please wait for a reply.

Hi Gorix, welcome to Seven Forums.

With a little information we can try adjusting some RAM settings.

Can you download CPUZ and post a snip of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs.
For posting the information , enter 'Snipping tool' in the Start button > Search box, hit enter. Select the area you want to post and save to a convenient place.

Go to your BIOS and tell us what the CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages (QPI/DRAM core voltage) are set at.

You should keep the QPI/DRAM and DRAM voltage within 0.50v for original Intel i7 CPUs.

Hello and thanks for the reply,

My CPU, RAM and the CPU integrated memory controller voltages (QPI/DRAM core voltage) are all set at "Auto" at the moment. What exactly means "within 0,5v" ?
