Windows 7: Computer constanstly hanging

Computer constanstly hanging

So pretty much, my computer hangs every 20 minutes or so for around 5 minutes each time, it is very annoying. I was told that it was my video card dying, and after doing some research on that subject it seemed quite possible. However, i just bought a new video card and it still occurs. It also still occurs on different user profiles. Changing the theme like i came to the conclusion in this thread http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...ml#post1820247 does not help. I've disabled every service that I dont need, and it still occurs. Video card drivers should be installed properly, I'm really at a lost here. There is one possible hardware problem however, I have an old modem in the PC which I think no longer works and i no longer use it, as it no longer recognizes it, would this cause severe hangs?
When it hangs, nothing works anymore until it stops. If im using IE, the pages don't load and it says the the webpage has encountered a problem. If I'm using Opera or FireFox the whole thing just freezes and won't budge until it is finished. World of Warcraft just freezes, its awful and it occurs constantly. I've attached the SF diagnostic tool, hopefully I can finally fix this BS problem.
Thank you.

UPDATE: Took the modem out, initial results seem good, but i would greatly appreciate it if someone would look in what i uploaded to see if that has anything that has to do with the problem.

Uninstall TuneUp Utilities 2012:

Code:
Start Menu\Programs\TuneUp Utilities 2012
These 'performance' programs tend to cause problems and never really do any good for your system.

Uninstall AnVir Task Manager:

Code:
Start Menu\Programs\AnVir Task Manager

Code:
BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa800788c038, 0, 0}

Probably caused by : GenuineIntel
0x124 is a hardware related BSOD (latest dump 24/10/12), follow these steps:
You will check to check the temperature of your hardware:

Tuneup utilites was removed long ago with a system restore (dad was trying something, really wish he would let me try to fix stuff because his answer to everything is google it and pick out the first thing- and then the computer stopped booting in anything but safe mode, that was the only thing recently installed)

As for the BSoD, was that caused by video card or processor?
And removing the modem has reducing the hangs altogether, they happen still but only for ~ 1 minute and not that often.
Thanks

Stop 0x124 never provides much good information and doesn't point any specific hardware; "GenuineIntel" is a generic probably caused line with 0x124 BSODs, that's why it's always best to test all the hardware and follow the steps within the 0x124 link.

Here are some programs which will come in useful when following the steps -

Hard Drive:
Memory:Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferrly overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Graphics Card:CPU:
Read all the steps within the hardware test tutorials very carefully, as stress tests is designed run components to their maximum capacity, in order to point out failing or faulty hardware components.

I'm going to get the standard issue "I told you so" from my dad. I did what you said, but i did not have the available resources to make a bootable device for memtest, so i googled and found one which runs in windows After only 5 minutes, it came up with this

Tried again, and 5 minutes later is said error again. Do you think the Slot is bad or the stick is bad?

Place one RAM stick in and then test again, if an error is found, then move to the next slot and test again, errors in all slots indicate a faulty RAM module. If errors are found in one or two particular slots and not the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have (a) bad DIMM slot(s).
