Windows 7: BSOD when loading Windows and within windows - Appears random.

BSOD when loading Windows and within windows - Appears random.

Hi Guys,
I really hope you can help me here.

I have a new Mac Pro with Windows 7 Professional running. This is my second Mac Pro, I never had any issues like this with the previous one.

It started almost from the off I was getting BSOD, randomly and only on the Windows side (hence coming to you guys for help) The Mac side I have no problems whatsoever.
The BSOD can happen as the computer starts, whilst in desktop . If I'm in a game say, BF3 the game will just lock and I have to switch off at the on/off button.

I have reinstalled Windows and just had bare drivers, I have changed graphics card (Nvidia 8800GT), changed memory reinstalled my 670GTX and stripped out all old drivers and installed only graphics and Physix. Taken out all but the two drives (one Mountain Lion OS and the Windows 7 and I still get the BSOD system dump.

I am at the end of my tether I cannot think what else there is to do and feel like chucking the damn computer out the window.

As I said I never had this problem with my other Mac Pro which was identical except for the processors which were 2.88Ghz.

I hope I've attched the right files for you to look at and I am praying that you can put me on the right path to rectifying this problem.

Many thanks

martin

Code:
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)

BugCheck 124, {0, fffffa8007873748, 0, 0}

Probably caused by : GenuineIntel
Follow these steps:
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.

Wow! thanks for the quick reply. I will try as you suggested.

My only reserve is that I did these stress tests, albeit on the Mac side, and everything passed with flying colours and the fact that the equivalent Mac type 'crashes' don't appear to happen when in Mountain Lion. Which lead me here as I thought it may be a software issue.

I will get back when I have done the tests.

Many thanks again BlueRobot for the quick response.
