Windows 7: Getting Random BSOD with different stop codes

Getting Random BSOD with different stop codes

For the past couple weeks my machine has been getting Random BSOD with different stop codes. I hadn't done much to rectify the problem other than google the stop codes to see what may the problem. I've learned it could be anything from failing hardware to driver conflicts. Pretty vague. So I just decided to format and reinstall Win 7 and see if that helped. Of course it didn't, so I've come here for the expertise of you gentleman...

I went through the BSOD posting instructions and I hope I've done everything properly. It's a lot of information.

See attached.

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although we have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). Please uninstall the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration):
DuplexSecure - FAQ

Log Me In/Remote anywhere software seems to be contributing to the crashes.

Uninstall it using the free version of Revo Uninstaller. While uninstalling a software, opt for advance uninstall. This allows you to remove and delete registry left over of a stubborn program. Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems

Check for a BIOS update:
BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. P2.60, 10/1/2010

Eset antivirus is contributing cause of your BSOD's. I would remove it with the uninstall tool and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials & the Free version of Malwarebytes, update and make a full scan separately:
Uninstallers (removal tools) for common antivirus software - ESET Knowledgebase
Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows
Malwarebytes Free

Run a system file check and disk check on your Hard drives:
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check

Test RAM with memtest86+:
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"

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.

Since I was just coming from another reinstall anyway I opted to go the step 7 route on the "Stop 0x124 trouble shooting strategy" (vanilla install w/ some slight modification).

I downloaded Prime95 and ran a small ffl stress test for a little over an hour earlier without a hiccup. I used Realtemp to monitor the temps to make sure they didn't go into dangerous levels. They leveled off at about 70-71 degrees. Last night Prime95 would crash the machine in a matter of minutes. Tonight I will run memtest86 on the machine overnight and see what comes up.

Since the reinstall I've yet to have any problems, but I haven't installed any updates or hardware drivers yet. I'll run like this for another day or so and slowly begin to install drivers and software. Thanks for the advice koolkat.

They were Thank-you.

After going through what I mentioned above, I decided to start testing the PC with new hardware pieces. I selected the graphics card first (because why not?), stress tested the computer and could not reenact the problem when I put an older card I had laying around. Turns out the GPU was bad. I Sent it to EVGA for replacement and now I'm good to go.

Thanks!!
