x124 BSOD on 1st StartUP and gaming

Hi everyone!

I have the strangest BSOD ever in my life : x124

here is my config:
i7-2600k
Zotac Z68-ITX wifi
Kingston 1600c9d3k2/8gx
A-DATA 128GB SDD
Sap. AMD HD6950 2GB
Antec h20

Every time i starting my computer a BSOD welcomes me. (auto-restarting)
Then i got the black screen with two options:
- etc. recovery mode
- etc. normal mode (but my USB keyboard dont work) so i have to wait for the 30 sec, recovery mode starts on (keyboard suddenly works) ,
- cancel or recovery yadda-yadda - (then restarting...)
and seems to be everything is fine. (sometime i can play more then 2 hours, or more)
after i restart, its start up normaly, but when i shut down wait around 20-30min the BSOD is there.

- my experince :
- when it works its bulletproof. no BSOD - i used many stress programs (furmark, etc)
- BSOD sometimes on playing, or starting games
things i done:
- Update drivers, BIOS
- replace RAM
- replace PSU
- replace SSD
- reinstall windows
- use the IGP (HD3000)
- no overclocking.

thanks for anything i cant solve this by my self - and sorry for my bad english!

Hi, I'm just going to ask some basic questions.

- Are all the parts compatible with each other?
- Have you updated to the latest firmware for your SSD?
- Are all the ram clocks/speed same?
- Have you monitored temperatures? For monitoring the heat/celsius of the system, use Speccy or HWinfo:- Are you sure if nothing is "Factory overclocked"?
- How does your computer perform on a vanilla installation of windows? Like with no software/drivers installed?

Did you follow this step by step? Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try. Was it helpful in anyway?

Also suggest you to uninstall Daemon Tools. It's notorious for BSODs!
Code:
Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite	Public:Start Menu\Programs\DAEMON Tools Lite	Public

Thx for the answer!

- Are all the parts compatible with each other? [/COLOR]- i hope so - Maybe the RAM (1,65V is suspecius - but i set this 1.5)
- Have you updated to the latest firmware for your SSD?[/COLOR] - tried another SSD, and HDD to (same)
- Are all the ram clocks/speed same?[/COLOR] - yep
- Have you monitored temperatures? For monitoring the heat/celsius of the system, use Speccy or HWinfo:
Speccy - System Information - Free Download
CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting - 40C maximum
- Are you sure if nothing is "Factory overclocked"? - its factory default on bios -
tried disable: - turbo boost, speed stepping
- How does your computer perform on a vanilla installation of windows? Like with no software/drivers installed?[/COLOR]
- im just finished the install its freeze on the last line (finishing setup, no mouse no keyboard, w8 20 min still no response,then i restart and no keyboard at all on the Win7 DOSlike screen)
one thing i replace the SSD put the instal disc (buit i forgot to change the boot priority, and the black screen came out :
no system disk or operating system press any key to ... bla,bla,bla, and NO KEYBOARD THERE TOO


uninstall Daemon Tools -checked.

maybe the RAM Voltage or Mobo ... or CPU (but i run prime95 least 3 h)

I am guessing this is a new build? You will need to set your RAM voltag to whatever it says on the RAM label, it can't run under volted.

Until you feed the RAM properly, BSODs will not stop.

Some hardware tests to run.

Hard drive(s):
Pick one for your HDD brand or use Seatools.

RAM (memory):
This will require memtest on a bootable CD or USB stick.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

As i write in the first post:

- furmark - done 2h no error
- memtest (hirens boot cd) - 6 pass
- hdd test with hd sentinel, hdtune checkdisk - passed.

I think somekind of energycontrolling system malfunction,
when i get the BSOD something is starting. ( and i think some device cant get the proper energy, could it be? )

Like desktop
Like game
Like app
But when it started it run like a dream.
And again, when is no OS sometime started (doslike screen) the USB KB is not working... Its strange.
