BSOD and Freeze at random accounts.

I built a new PC last July 2012, and ever since then I'm getting BSOD's and freezes at random. I can install programs but when I try to run them, I get freezes/blue screens. Also happens when I install updates for Windows. I've attached all the files from all the blue screens.

Help would be very much appreciated.

Stop any kind of overclocking. Reset any changed values back to default. Then go through this thread: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

You have 32 GB ram, make sure all the ram clocks are the same.

BSOD during download of Installer

I'm currently downloading an online game installer (HoN), and around 70% - 80% the pc bsod twice. I don't know what's causing this, and I just got my cpu from the service center two days ago (since it had a lot of bsod's in the past, and its under warranty.)

Help would be very much appreciated.

Hello Animate.

The latest display driver is sometimes problematic. Roll it back to the earlier stable version.
Uninstall AVG.
Use Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus with windows inbuilt firewall, and free MBAM as the on demand scanner.

Download and install those, and then run full system scans with both of them, one by one.


Let us know the results.

I removed AVG, installed Microsoft Essentials and MBAM. Did a full scan on each program and detected nothing.

I didn't remove the nVidia Driver though because the current version of the driver is GeForce 306.97, from Windows Update. Should I still remove it and install the one you recommended?

Your decision.

As it crashed on display driver, and my personal and debugging experience says that the version 306.97 is problematic, I suggested it.

If you dont like to, you need not.

Okay I will remove it and give you feedback afterwards after I install the one you recommended. Thank you for the quick response.

When I was downloading the installer you recommended, at around 80-85%, it BSOD with a label "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION". Perhaps there's really something wrong with the latest display driver.

I've attached the minidump if you'd like to take a look at it.

BSOD when PC left idle for downloading

I left my PC hours ago to download/reinstall a game from Steam, and I monitored it for the few hundred MB's (probably around 400MB) before I went to sleep at around 12:30am. When I woke up 'round 5:20am to check if my game has finished its download, I saw that it has crashed hours ago and resumed its download from 1.5G/2.7G. I didn't know what caused the crash, but the BCCode 50 showed up in the menu.

Attached below are the files I got from the diagnostic tool. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
