Windows 7: BSOD Random Occurence 0x00000124

BSOD Random Occurence 0x00000124

Hi, so I have done quite a bit of browsing over this problem checked out several threads in regards my issue and found no solution.

And in Event Viewer it is showing the fatal error is to do with Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power. I have seen no references to this in any of the threads I have looked at.

So some advice on fixing this problem is much obliged. My system is currently overclocked to 4.5ghz and seeing as the reported error within EV has power in it I figure maybe that is the cause of the problem.

But my system does not always crash, I think I get one a week or so. This could be doing anything to be honest.

Most recently (this evening) I was playing Diablo 3 and boom my system crashed on me.

I have attached the BlueScreenView text file from my most recent crash. I have also attached SF Diagnostics information as suggested in another thread.

My drivers are up to date as far as I am aware, I am going to to check this now. I have no malware or viruses. And heat isn't an issue either.

You're getting a L2 Cache error from the processor. Check to see if there's a BIOS update for your motherboard. I tried to look on the Asus site but something is preventing me from getting anywhere.

Forgot to mention: It's advisable that you roll-back any OCing and follow the BIOS update instruction (if any update) EXACTLY.

Hum carwiz I don't know much about those dump files and the Asus support is pretty weak as getting the latest BIOS update for my P877 was quiet an excercise in frustration.

LOL.... You want to see the dump?

The WHEA status indicates a cache error in level two (L2) processor memory. It could be a proc going bad but it's always better to check for a BIOS update first. Or it could be an OCed proc getting ahead of itself too.

To the OP:
If you can find your way around the Asus site, your current BIOS is:
BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 2303, 17/02/2012

Having found the correct bios I'm about to install it so keep them fingers crossed. I hate flashing bios. Just incase I brick it or something.

Latest BIOS is an update that improves stability and support for Ivy bridge.

Good luck! It always makes me nervous too and it's not even my machine.

Sorry to chip in on the thread but;

Code:
WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR (124)
A fatal hardware error has occurred. Parameter 1 identifies the type of error
source that reported the error. Parameter 2 holds the address of the
WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure that describes the error conditon.
Arguments:
Arg1: 0000000000000000, Machine Check Exception
Arg2: fffffa80071e4028, Address of the WHEA_ERROR_RECORD structure.
Arg3: 00000000be200000, High order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
Arg4: 000000000005110a, Low order 32-bits of the MCi_STATUS value.
If updating the BIOS doesn't seem to resolve the problem, then you may stress test the CPU, the address of WHEA structure pointed to a Level 2 processor cache, however, the error was sourced from the MCE, which means the CPU detected a hardware error and then reported it to the operating system which produced the WHEA bugcheck.

Test the CPU for confirmation:Enable "Round off checking" before the test (see first post below tutorial).

Then follow these steps:If all the hardware checks do not produce any errors, then it could be a bad motherboard.
