Windows 7: BSODs (Screen freeze) Randomly.

BSODs (Screen freeze) Randomly.

Hello, I've had this problem for about a year or so. Can't really remember when it started but was about a year ago. My computer started to randomly freeze, at first it happend once a week, then a couple of times per week. Suddenly I had BSODs 10-30 times a day. I googled a lot to try to fix it never found a real solution. After a while it magically stopped crashing, no idea why really. Then a couple of months later it started the exact same way again. Going from not that often to several times a day. It has been like this on and off for about a year now. I've tried to completly wipe my harddrives and reinstall windows but it keeps coming back.

Now I have had enough of this and is seeking help on how to solve this.

During all this time I have never been able to find a real pattern of when it crashes. It happens when I play video games, watch tv, go afk, surf on the internet and so on.

During this 1 year I have tried all kinds of things, I've tried to unplug certain hardware to see if it stopped, I've ran tons of different tests but never managed to solve it.

I'm willing to do this all over again if you were to tell me to. So please help me on how to solve this, it's driving me insane.

For a stop 124, please go through: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Quote:
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.

So there's a problem with the hardware?

How do I test to see what part there's a problem with?

Firstly, are you overclocking any hardware? If so, which reset these values back to the their defaults within the BIOS.

What are your temperatures idle? Post a screenshot using:Remember to unselect any additional programs which may be offered during the installation, these programs are usually bloatware and are not needed.

No I'm not overclocking anything, never have either.

Took that picture right when I got back in windows after a crash.

Update your System Specifications with Speccy, and then copy this information into your System Specifications: Go to your UserCP, and then select Edit System Spec in the left pane. Copy the information from Speccy into the required fields. These System Specifications will then follow your every post.

Then begin testing the CPU for any errors or faults:Enable "Round off checking" before the test (see first post below tutorial).

Updated my System Specifications, my computer crashed 20 seconds after I started stressing with Prime95.

Haven't been able to stay 2 minutes in windows since that crash before I get a new one.. Having a seriously hard time trying stressing for 1-2hours.
