Windows 7: Random idle BSOD 0x124 @ ntoskrnl.exe. ~Once / day

Thanks BlueRobot for the help and advice! I will post in a couple days or if next crash occurs.

Faladu: I replaced high end Corsair 2x2GB 1333MHz memory I still had lying around with new Kingston ValueRam from the store. Since the problems were EXACTLY the same with both memory sticks I kind of ruled out RAM being the cause.

Even still, Kingston ValueRam IS on the supported memory list on Asrock's site:
ASRock > B75 Pro3-M
(At least the 8GB and 2GB sticks are, I have 1x4GB)

I just happened upon a batch of mad KVR forum fun elsewhere, researching another issue the other day, had to pass that on.

Yeah I agree with you, RAM as the culprit a lot less likely now.

What were you doing when it crashed?

I looked over the dump and got nothing useful from it, but I am very tired also.

Browsing mostly. I believe a Youtube video was running. But it happened while I was away from the computer.

Was this system ever overclocked?

Looking for excuses to why this is going on....

Read something that suggested an error 124 was from a shoddy PSU not giving consistently good voltage, that sound plausible?

....or perhaps overheating of a component.


Of course heat is the enemy in general, so if indeed it's already shot your CPU and/or chipset, this issue would continue, indefinitely.

No. It is a completely new self-assembled system. Never overclocked. All BIOS settings on AUTO

PSU could ofcourse always be an issue...but considering how BARE the system is it seems highly unlikely:
- No external graphics card. CPU alone has only 77W TDP
- Only 1 SSD drive as storage (1 HDD + DVD have been added by now, but problems started before that)

One thing I could think of though: The motherboard has an 8 pin 12v connector. PSU only has a 4 pin 12v connector. This is, however, common and fits normally while leaving the other 4 pins unconnected. Without overclocking this should not be an issue.

PSU itself is a decent brand 'Be Quiet!'. However, it is only 300W and an older molder (6 series). But again, without an external GPU I cannot imagine this system pulling more than 300W!
