BSOD while booting certain games, error: 0x00000124

Hi I am having issues with certain games. These games include Borderlands 2, Saints row: the third and Warhammer 40k space marine.

I always get the same error on the BSOD which is the 0x00000124 which leads back to ntoskrnl.exe

These bluescreens always come when I boot any of the games, usually about 2-3 seconds after going full screen. I have them all through Steam and i have checked the file integrity on the games, also reinstalled steam to have it check through the DirectX files.

I have also tried to remove my Nvidia drivers and reinstalling them.

I have no issues running other high end games like Crysis 2 maximum ED or Guild Wars 2

I have no clue what to do, since I am not the most experienced when it comes to these things. Anyways I'll attach my system specs the dump file from the BSOD.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

We'll need more beef on this. Follow instructions as presented here. Btw, there are some things in hardware specs (like PSU model) that aren't available in the MSINFO32 file. You'll want to list all the hardware components you have personally.

I noticed a gap of a couple months for the crashdumps, from Aug-Sept. Were there no games played during this time?

Aside from what appears to be a couple random crashes from stuff like your USB internal hub controller drivers, the rest point to a generic BUS timeout error, which I reckon is during crosstalk between RAM and CPU.

Can you describe your hardware setup? It appears you have a non-OEM mobo with drivers for some of its components dating January or older. You'll want to go to the mobo vendor's website and download driver updates for all its components, as well as a BIOS update. In addition, remove all software and utilities that you may have installed that came with the motherboard's software suite. This includes OCing software, monitoring software, "enhancement" software like USB power/speed improvement software, etc. etc. Leave only drivers that are necessary for the functioning of your mobo's parts. The rest must go.

In addition, you should do some hardware tests. Start with an overnight run of Memtest86+ and then follow that up with two overnight runs of Prime95. The first Prime95 run should be on Torture Test with Blend. The other should be Torture Test with Large FFTs. Do the second regardless of the results of the first. If the Blend test is successful (and doesn't crash system) but Large FFTs fails, you most likely have a bad CPU. If Blend fails but Large FFT succeeds, you most likely have bad mobo/RAM. If both fail/crash, then you have either a bad CPU, RAM, mobo or PSU.

There's also the seldom offchance that we're dealing with a bad video card here. Given that this is happening during gaming, I wouldn't bet against it. If your mobo has onboard video, attempt to run the games on that temporarily (or if you have another video card, try that). If they are stable, the original video card is prolly to blame.
