Windows 7: BSOD Playing BF3, 0x0000124

You'll need to run Memtest with at the very least 7 consecutive passes. That's all tests completed 7 times. It'll take a few hours so it's probably best done overnight. Each of the Prime95 runs should be an overnighter as well, as in a good 7 hours or more. It'll run infinitely or until it runs into an error, so just let it run for a good period of time.

As for the crashdumps, The "GenuineIntel" in this case just means what reported the crash. WHEA bugchecks like this are caused by hardware doing their own checks and finding a problem, then reporting it to Windows. Windows will then take that information, gather some more from the appropriate device, and then issue a BSOD because it has deemed the system's condition as unreliable (as with any BSOD). In your case, the CPU reported the issue, but it does not mean the CPU is the problem! Rather it was the first to discover it (which is usually the case). It could be any of the PC components I mentioned previously, including the CPU itself. That's what we're trying to ascertain with these hardware checks.

ah oke! thanks for the information, i started prime 95 @ 8:45 (UTC+01:00) and its still running now without any errors (its 16:31 now here) is it good to stop it and start memtest now? or should i try fumark/heaven first?

I suggest working with each hardware diagnostic test separately. If this is the first Prim95 run (I assume you're using Blend settings), do another of the same time length with Large FFT settings. Then follow up with the Furmark/Heaven.

Well... I did a fumark burn in test 30 mins after that i did the heaven benchmark for 2 hours, i didnt notice any problems so i started to uninstall my amd radeon drivers. I did a reboot and used driver sweeper to remove the other amd stuff. After that i had to reboot but windows wont boot anymore, it only shows the starting windows and after that it just restarts over and over.

So im going to install windows on the same hard drive, and let the old windows move to a folder called windows.old. If i finished the windows installation+drivers i will try bf3 again and check whats gonna happen then.

I just hope it was a windows fault...

I keep u updated!

Did you inadvertently leave Driver Verifier on? DV is known to cause a boot loop if it catches something early in Windows startup. Have you tried booting up in Safe Mode (F8 before windows logo)? You can disable DV there as well as do other diagnostics if necessary. If crashing even occurs in Safe Mode, you have hardware problems or a serious Windows corruption going on (which also is usually caused by disk problems).

i dont know if DV was still on, i only know i activated it yesterday.
safe mode still works, but isn't it a good idea to reinstall windows7?

Well... i reinstalled windows 7 and i did a memtest for 2 hours and 30 mins cause i had to go and i didn't get an error. after that i installed the lastest drivers, but i didn't install any motherboard utilities from ASUS etc.

I downloaded orgin and BF3, i just played it 3 hours without a BSOD or any other problems. I hope the problem is gone but i'm not sure... But if i get a BSOD again u will see me very fast at this sub forum, But i really hope it won't happen again!

Anyway, I really want to thank you for your asistance!
