I've updated/installed drivers for my Intel Chipset..seems stable and no BSODs have occured yet. If that changes, I will make sure to post any updates.

The last crash dump is still one more stop 0x124.

If it still happens after updating the chipset, we have to take the final way ....

Unfortunately, another blue screen has occured after quite a while. I had my hopes up but it seems unlikely. I've attached the dump files if it has any importance.

A note to add to this; I've performed a Hard Drive fitness test with an advanced test and no errors came up on it. I also have no spare parts to attempt the tests that you've suggested towards the end of your post. What should I do now?

It is a continuous process of stop 0x124s.

Complete the steps. Then report back. For a stop 0x124, your action is more needed than bugchecking.

As a last resort, I've reformatted the hard drive and I'm carefully installing one driver at a time. I'll update with another post if another blue screen rolls along.

An update; a BSOD occured yesterday involving Hal.dll and Ntoskrnl.exe. If I recall properly, I was just opening up a disc setup while exploring files. It feels like whenever I open too many things at once, the BSOD is more likely to happen. I've attached the file below.

I've performed another test involving the motherboard by removing all the RAM sticks and listening if it beeps or not. Fortunately the beeps occurred three times before shutting itself off. I suppose its safe to rule out the Motherboard at this point, yeah?

I have a strong belief it's the CPU at this point..I'm planning to order one the upcoming few days. Before I do that, I did order a power supply tester a few days ago. So I'm going to test that first before ordering a new CPU.

As an ending note, I have been updating drivers here and there, but there might be a few that are outdated. Could you please let me know if anything comes up? Thanks!

As you have formatted the HDD, a stray crash dump will not be enough there. Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Greetings. I apologize for the long delay in responding to the status of my issue.

It turns it out it was the CPU, numerous Prime95 testing on Large FFTs ended up with BSODs. I've checked with the Windows Debugger tool and it pointed at the Processor having Cache Errors. I haven't touched the computer ever since, and I've done numerous re-tests on previous components such as the PSU, RAM stick, Motherboard (Which I obtained a new one after discovering one of the RAM slots did not work at all.), and CPU.

If another BSOD occurs, I will take the liberty of notifying on this thread. For now, thank you very much for assisting me Arc! And I hope this issue does not ever occur again.
