Windows 7: Random BSOD 0x00000124

Random BSOD 0x00000124

Hi there guys, since I have formatted my PC im getting random BSODs with the same exact error every time.
They occour pretty randomly, sometimes when Im writing a Word document, chatting with my friends, gaming or just browsing the internet. I do not know what is the main reason. My CPU is overclocked to 4.6GHz, however this has not been a problem AT ALL before the disk format. Right now Im running prime95 for the last hour with temperature not exceeding 73 degrees on 100% usage + no laggs nor crashes.

My main concern is MSI Afterburner. I overclock pretty much everything that is overclockable (Is that w word? D Afterburner has updated recently and so I try to get the settings same as before, however iits constructed a bit different so Im not sure If im doing it right. The "fun" part is that I dont remember whether my GPU was overclocked during the crashes or not. I had a Crash about 90 minutes ago, during which my GPU WAS overclocked. Its the only one I remember.

The error im getting is 0x00000124

Thanks.

OK So I looked through your files, and it seems that your PC is crashing HARD from some hardware level error, It stumped me at first because I could literally get no information from your crash dumps now there is not muc hthat can be done for these types of errors, other than try and figure out what piece of hard ware is failing (again not any clues here from the dump files)

Have a look at this thread and see if it is any help: Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Yes, its crashing alot. Im not using afterburner for the next few days and see whats gonna happen. During this time I'll look for any "faulty" hardware and update if possible. I might have not installed some stuff after the format. We'll see what I can do

Thanks anyway.

Havent used Afterburner since and no crashes. Can the software suddenly become uncompatible?
Im using nearly the same settings.

Not that I know of but it is always possible that the install was corrupted for what ever reason.

Ok, I left my computer downloading over night and nothing happened. However, I left it again about two hours ago and during that time I had another crash. Although I did not use afterburner. The error Is still the same and I really have no idea what to do now.



Im also adding that diagnostics.

So it is still the same error, and there is still very very little information in the dump files, I think the best thing at this point is to stop any and all over clocking atleast untill such a time that there is evidence that this issue is not being caused by over clocking. some information about over clcoking:

Quote:
What are the risk of overclocking?
In most situations, Overclocking will void the warranty of your equipment.
The lifespan of the CPU and other devices will be shortened.
You could potentially destroy your CPU, memory, motherboard, and other expensive items.
Room temperature is likely to increase.
Your system could become unstable.
Taken from this article: Overclocking FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) - How to Overclock! - Overclockers Club
